The Old Bakery
About the home
What a location! In an elevated position, The Old Bakery is a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of the buzzing town of Dartmouth. A warm welcome awaits you at this delightful three-storey townhouse, situated in the heart of this wonderful town. It is beautifully furnished with comfortable modern furniture, so welcoming and cosy you will immediately feel at home. With superb views out onto the ancient Saint Saviours Church and pretty Foss Street with its numerous boutiques and art galleries, the location could not be bettered. Dartmouth really is on your doorstep, being steps away from a local deli, you can pick up freshly cooked croissants in the morning or even have breakfast out at the famous Al Fresco's Cafe.
Dating back to 1852 The Old Bakery is steeped in history and retains much of its original character and charm. Converted from the former bakery and still retaining its original bread oven, it enjoys an exclusive position. The property offers sunny accommodation and is very comfortably furnished with a clean and neutral decor scheme. On the ground floor is the kitchen and lounge with granite flooring throughout.

The West Country / Devon region
Devon is a popular holiday destination in South west England.The scenery and climate have made the area a favoured destination for the past 250 years. Over that time much has changed, yet much of the character and many of the local traditions have remained.
The coast and countryside are still extraordinarily beautiful, which is why more than two thirds of South Devon is carefully protected as a national asset, either in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or as part of the Dartmoor National Park.
The Dartmouth area
Dartmouth is characterised by its narrow lanes, stairways and corridors and plenty of medieval and Elizabethan features. It is a beautiful town steeped in history with many of the buildings dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. The oldest building in Dartmouth is the Cherub Public House which dates back as far as 1380!
The Britannia Royal Naval College famous for training the Royal Navy's Officers sits majestically overlooking the town and down the River Dart towards Kingswear and the Dartmouth Castle and out to sea. The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway is on the Kingwear side of the river and trains run regularly offering a traditional and unique blast from the past.
