“A hideaway adjacent to a historical home in beautiful countryside.”

We thoroughly enjoyed this little two-story apartment in a restored former Bakehouse. The staircase between floors was frightening to a woman in her late 70s who is somewhat unsteady on her feet, but managed it with care. Decor was cheery, kitchen well equipped and adjacent grounds great for walking. We loved our week there, visited a lovely garden, shopped farm stores, enjoyed a nearby inn and pub and found it a delightful home away from our US home on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

“Cosy hide away with secret gardens.”

We stayed at The Old Bakehouse over the New Year period and had the most wonderful time. The cottage itself is quirky and comfortable but the true wonder of this place are the grounds of which it is set; just magical! All this and so close to two great town centres, you can choose to hide away as we did or explore the local cities with ease.

“home from home with the benefit of perfect tranquility”
Reviewed July 20, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Was a homely place to stay and explore the area - set in beautiful grounds with access to woodland. Had everything we needed and the hosts were very welcoming but left us alone to enjoy our break.

“Roomy, Inviting and Private”
Reviewed January 10, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

person found this review helpful

The Old Bakehouse proved to be a good choice for myself and my adult son when we recently visited Staffordshire to see our family. The cottage had plenty of room, was cosy and inviting and offered privacy from the main house and the other holiday accommodation located on the property.

There is heating right throughout the cottage, with an open fire for those inclined to light it. The kitchen offers a functional kitchen, plenty of room, cook top with four hotplates, microwave, dishwasher and large fridge. A washing machine and dryer were available for use, at no extra charge, unlike other places where we stayed. A digital radio is provided so you can keep up with local events or listen to music and a DVD player is there for the times when it's snowing outside and just not worth trekking out.

The village of Baldwin's Gate is walking distance away where there is a post office, pub, petrol station and store where you can buy a variety of meats, cheeses, delicatessen and dairy items, as well as everyday grocery items, so you don't have to go all the way back into town if you forget something.

Wifi is available at the property and it works! We found a number of places offered wifi but when it came to using it, there was a range of amazing excuses offered as to why it wasn't working. But at The Old Bakehouse, the router was only a short distance away and we got a really good connection.

The property owners were extremely pleasant, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this property and will return when we go back to visit our family.
