    We had a lovely family break over Christmas at the old bakery. Our grandson fell in love with the hot tub. We would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to relax and get away from it all. There was everything there that you could ever need.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Bakery. The cottage itself is lovely and is in a great relaxing setting - sitting by the pond watching the chickens and ducks was heavenly. The Prosecco and chocolates were a welcome touch but after a long journey I would have appreciated a pint of milk in the fridge so we could have a quick cuppa (every other cottage I’ve stayed at gives you this). On another note the website did say the property would be decorated for Christmas - we stayed the week before so I had assumed (perhaps wrongly) that the cottage would be decorated but it wasn’t - I know other people who have gone away in early December and their cottage has been decorated. I was a little disappointed but it didn’t ruin our stay. These are minor objections however and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Old Bakery to anyone - we’re looking forward to coming back in the summer so we can use the pool!

    Everything was perfect! The property was immaculate and the facilities were great; there was something for everyone. We found the cottage itself quite hard to find, so had to send the other guests more specific directions. The cottage is full of character and is really cosy, perfect for a winter break.

    We had a fabulous stay at the old bakery. The cottage itself is so quaint with uneven floors, low ceilings and beams. We loved lighting the log burner , using the hot tub and the games room was a real bonus especially as the weather wasn’t great while we were there. Everything was very clean and the cottage was surprisingly warm even with all the radiators turned off! We would love to come back in the summer to use the pool and walk around the area a bit more.

    Absolutely gorgeous cottage and just the break away we all needed. The cottage and it’s surrounding area are truly stunning, the pictures don’t do it justice. The added bonus of the games room and hot tub just really topped off an already perfect holiday.

    Thank you both so much for letting us use your beautiful cottage. If only history could talk. Everything exceeded my expectations and my other friends who hadn’t been before. Well equipped, the beds, bedding and towels were amazing. Felt so luxurious. I wish you and your beautiful wife, whom I saw for a brief moment when I was in the pool (lol)... endless happiness and I will definitely be back again Kind regards Michelle

    We had a lovely time at The Old Bakery, the WOW factor as you walk into the garden and then the property is stunning. The decor is gorgeous, the shower fantastic and the beds super comfy. Our 2 boys loved the swimming pool and the games room, and that was a real plus point as the weather defeated us on our recent week here. Banham Zoo is a must, and is only a 20 minute drive. Colin and Debbie are great hosts, and we would definitely stay here again. the one thing I would say is that anyone who is less mobile may find the 1st floor a little tricky to navigate due to the uneven landing floor and low door frames, but this is a 300+ yr old property so to be expected I think. Overall, this is one of the nicest properties we have stayed in.

    The old bakery has got to be the most beautiful cottage we've ever stayed in. The owners where always on hand when we needed anything but at the same time were very unobtrusive. There has been a lot of love and thought gone into the renovation of this place and it shows. It really does have something for everyone, catering for all ages! We'd love to have a summer break here at some stage with the kids. I can imagine a summer evening having a BBQ, with the kids playing between the pool and the games room while we crack open a bottle of champagne in the hot tub! I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone looking for a nice relaxing break with absolutely everything at your feet. We will definitely be returning.
