Description from owner


The Old Bakery sits in the grounds of Town End Farm on the edge of the ancient village of Crowcombe in the heart of the Quantock Hills, the first area in Britain designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a footpath directly opposite the entrance which leads right up to the top of the hills and across the surrounding countryside which has changed very little from the days when it inspired the romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth.

Just a few minutes walk will take you into the heart of the village, where you will find the village church, shop with Post Office and also the excellent pub, The Carew Arms.

The Old Bakery is perfect for the traditional summer holiday or for short breaks any time of the year.

We keep a small selection of outdoor play equipment for young children. Transportation for the setting down and collection of guests and their bikes can be arranged. The property has adjacent paddocks with sheep and ponies grazing.

Further details indoors

The 17th century Old Bakery has been thoughtfully renovated and retains lots of character and charm. It has a king size bedroom with en-suite including a free-standing bath with shower attachment and one ground floor with zip and link twin beds and adjacent separate shower room and wc. The property oil-fired central heating, a log burner and its own cottage garden. Our guests also have access to extensive gardens surrounding the our farmhouse. A cot and highchair can be supplied by arrangement.

Further details outdoors

Guests staying at Town End Farm enjoy full use a large games barn with pool table, table tennis, darts and table football.

“Heaven in the Quantock Hills”

Reviewed 6 May 2013

My husband and I spent a week in the Old Bakery in April 2013. Crowcombe is a beautiful village and surrounded by even more beautiful hills. Bruce is the perfect host (scones and clotted cream upon arrival!) and pretty much every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations. We will be back.

“Mixed ages”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2012

We stayed at The Old Bakery with my wife's Parents and found the accommodation suited our needs very well with a accessible ground floor for the outlaws and an open style Bedroom for ourselves upstairs. Great cream tea on arrival and can heartily recommend the eggs supplied by Bruce (well Bruce's hens actually) for scrambling. Pub 5 minute walk super food great beer and a Turkey plodding around the garden. Great central site for touring around into North Devon as well as West Somerset. Our dog enjoyed the trip too and was well catered for. I note of caution beware the ticks if you walk on the Quantocks in shorts and check any dog you take up there too

“Beautiful setting, excellent accommodation and facilities.”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2011

A quiet location, the cottage is located next to the beautiful Quantock Hills, with fields all around. The owner makes you feel very welcome and will happily give you advice about places of interest to visit and where to walk . In the village there is a small shop, a pub and a church. The accommodation is excellent, with beautiful bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen and WiFi. There is a shared games room containing table tennis, darts, snooker, which is a great for children to keep them busy on a rainy day.

“A home away from home”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2011

Bruce and Kirsty run two charming cottages in this small village in West Somerset. We stayed in Flora's Barn which was very well equipped and spacious so that you could easily spend the day in side with children if the weather wouldn't permit outdoor activities. There is also a games room on the property which features a pool table, table tennis etc.

“Beautiful cottage with lovely helpful owners”

Reviewed 16 May 2011

We stayed in The Old Bakery for 2 nights when attending a wedding at Crowcombe Court. The Owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. We had freshly baked scones, they bought over a box of toys for my little boy, gave us great tips for things to do. We had lovely fish and chips from the pub and some great walks with our dog who was welcome to stay too. The rooms were thoughtfully finished and we would highly recommend staying there to anyone and plan to go back one day soon.
