The Old Bakery Bed & Breakfast and Self-Catering Accommodation in Georgeham near Croyde

A very warm welcome to The Old Bakery run by David and Pippa.

At The Old Bakery we offer both Bed & Breakfast and self-catering accommodation. We aim to provide comfortable, relaxed and friendly accommodation with some features which we believe make it different to other B&B's. In particular there is a guest kitchen which we use to prepare a full cooked breakfast for those who want it but is otherwise available for you to use flexibly.
Our priority is to make sure you have a wonderful stay and we are available to assist in any way we can. We want you to leave with some great memories!

(Please note we do not take pets.)

The Main House

Our guest accommodation in the main house comprises one twin bedroom, one double and one bedroom with divan beds which can be made up as either a double or twin and also has a sofa bed. All rooms are en-suite with tea/coffee making facilities and TV's with built in DVD's and ipod docks. We also have a guest dining room, lounge and kitchen and you can use the patio and garden to relax in on sunny days.

Having a guest kitchen means we can offer both traditional Bed and Breakfast and semi or fully self-catering options.

You can book one or more rooms to stay as "traditional" B&B guests with a cooked breakfast included in the price. With this option you have the use of the guest kitchen once we have cleared away so you can get your own snacks or even cook a full evening meal at no extra cost.

Alternatively you can rent the whole accommodation on an exclusive fully self-catering basis giving you up to 3 bedrooms and sleeping up to seven people. See our group bookings page for more information.

The Garden Room Self-Catering Cottage

In addition The Garden Room is our new and separate fully self-catering cottage for two comprising an original stone building located in the garden with it's own access and patio. The Garden Room has an open plan layout, fully equipped kitchen and the beds can be arranged as either twins or a double making it suitable for both singles and couples.

For all our guests we have passes to Putsborough Beach car park at a much reduced rate, WiFi and plenty of DVD's, games, books and puzzles for the longer winter evenings, not to mention two excellent and very friendly pubs with great food within easy walking distance.

Our Location

Our B&B is situated in the centre of the delightful village of Georgeham in the very heart of North Devon's Gold coast very close to both Croyde and Putsborough. Nestling just above and a short distance from this world famous surfing resort, Georgeham benefits from being close enough to experience the bustling Croyde life, but far enough away for you to enjoy a tranquil break.

Whether you want to enjoy the beaches of Croyde, Putsborough or Woolacombe, walk the South West coastal Path, cycle, visit Exmoor or simply enjoy the surrounding stunning countryside, The Old Bakery is your perfect base at any time of the year. And you'll have much of it to yourself if you come out of season!

Beautiful Accommodation
Thank you to David and Pippa for making us feel so very welcome here in Georgeham. Beautiful accommodation, gorgeous breakfast in a fantastic location. Couldn't ask for any more!
L and D from Coventry, staying in the Band B, April 2019

Full of memories
Thank you for letting us stay in your cosy, beautiful Garden Room - everything was perfect! David and Pippa were lovely hosts and made us feel so welcome. I loved saying "morning" to "the girls" (our chickens!)and of course our visits from the friendliest dog Bobby. We have walked miles around Exmoor, enjoyed all the local food - one of the highlights was the homemade truffles for dessert at The Rock. Miles' Fish and Chips (our mobile takeaway) were very tasty. We aslo enjoyed the hustle and bustle of Croyde. But so happy that we decided to stay in this quaint and peaceful village of Georgeham! We will leave refreshed, relaxed and full of memories. We will be back! Thank you!
M and A from Southampton, April 2019 in The Garden Room

Everything was fabulous
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Everything was fabulous. This place is a little gem and we cannot wait to tell our friends about it. The place is an ideal base to explore the North Devon coast and we got as far as Clovelly after all the local hotspots. The people are very friendly especially the staff at the exceptional Kings Arms. We would love to stay longer but will look forward to returning some time in the near future.
M and S from Solihull, July 2018

Wow! What a fantastic time.
Wow!! What a fantastic time we have had. LOVELY Garden Room perfect for two of us. Can highly recommend The Kings Arms. Food was best we have had in a long time. The Rock was also very good. Will hope to come back

Your home is lovely
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. You have both made us feel so welcome. Pippa's homemade cakes and bread are fabulous and David's photography is great.

The perfect Base
We had a lovely week in The Garden Room cottage which has been the perfect base for exploring the wonders of North Devon. The cottage is suitably equipped and the garden is a delight. David, Pippa and Bobby (their dog!) made us feel very welcome and provided very useful information about local walks and places to visit. This is a place that will stay long in our memories. Many thanks.
M and J from Harrogate. September 2017.

Now we have discovered The Garden Room
I first fell in love with this are in 1962 ...camping with a church youth group. Soon after we married I introduced Gordon (my husband) to North Devon and we have been coming here ever since. There were years when we played on the beach and swam in the sea at Woolacombe with the children and then it went back to just being two of us again. Now we have discovered The Garden Room and have enjoyed a very comfortable and peaceful week. Once more we have been on our favourite walks and visited the lovely beaches. We have also driven to Watersmeet, Tarr Steps and Dunster Castle, as well as Clovelly and Hartland Quay in the opposite direction. This year we have also discovered Castle Hill (Gardens) for the first time. Thank you David and Pippa for providing such a wonderful place to stay.
D and G from Sheffield, June 2017

Everything is perfect here
Not much to say when everything is perfect here! So don't change a thing...!

A real blessing
We have had a wonderful time in this peaceful haven with two very special hosts David and Pippa, and Bobby! Thank you for the delicious breakfasts and generous hospitality bag in the bedroom.

Very much at home
Many thanks David and Pippa for making us feel so very much at home.

Breakfasts were a delight as indeed was every aspect of staying here. Thank you both so much!(Bobby was great company too!).

A very Peaceful Stay in The Garden Room
David and Pippa made us feel very welcome from the start. They have gone over and above by putting together folders with useful,information which we took advantage of. A very peaceful place to stay; having been to the area before this was definitely our favourite stay. Would really recommend having a cream tea on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday in summer. They are amazing and support a very special charity!! We are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you for a lovely stay. See you soon x
D and D from Norfolk. July 2015.

Pampered Few Days
Many thanks for a lovely holiday. Your attention to providing a pampered few days was much appreciated. Breakfasts were superb as was the scenery - shame the weather couldn't match it! Hope to return in the near future.
A and B from Somerset. August 2015.

We loved it here
We loved it here! Highlights have been surfing twice a day at Croyde and Woolacombe, beautiful walks from Morthoe (7 1/2 miles round Morte Point), and from Berrynarbour to Hele and back along the coastal path. We've had such a relaxing time and would definitely like to return. The Garden Room has been fab and very warm and cosy. ... Thank you for the cake and milk on arrival! God bless you both.
M and C from Edgware, North London, April 2015.

The Garden Room: A lovely setting
We have had a wonderful week celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary. The Garden Room is such a lovely setting in a quiet village. During the week we visited lots of villages including Lynton, Clovelly and Appledore. Thanks to David, Pippa and Bobby for being so approachable, easygoing and friendly..."
A and R from Manchester. Sept 2014

The Garden Room: A Perfect Little Home
A perfect little home in a perfect setting. A home from home, very relaxing.
S and S, Portsmouth, Sept 2014

Beautiful Beaches
Thank you for such a lovely holiday - we've had such a wonderful time. You've made us feel so welcome we don't want to go home! We had a great week visiting wildlife parks, beautiful beaches and enjoying the stunning scenery. We shall miss lovely Bobby too! We really appreciate all your kindness and generosity.
A, E and S, Cheshire. Sept. 2014.

Peaceful and Tranquil
Such a peaceful and tranquil home, so beautifully kept. I have loved my week here. Our room was so comfortable - very specious especially when my mobility is poor at night. The accessible shower and seat made a huge difference - it can be so difficult going away when you have extra needs and having had a suspected broken elbow from a has been great to be in an environment where I haven't struggled anywhere near as much as I would normally if I were away. I think the only thing that was slightly tricky was the 1st doorstep as it is quite high. Loved the breakfasts. Loved being made to feel at ease and cared for by you David and Pippa. This is an absolute gem of a place and one I hope we can come back to. Thank you.
K and B, Hants, August 2014.

Gentle loving kindness
Thank you for your gentle loving kindness shown to us; It's been lovely getting to know you both. We have had such a wonderful week and have enjoyed the peace and tranquility in this place and visiting North Devon again. We look forward to coming back. xx

Fantastic Stay
Thank you again for another fantastic stay in your beautiful B&B! We've been a bit more adventurous this year and loved that you were able/willing to join us for the quad bikes experience!

Breakfasts were the best
Thank you for making my "chill out" break so comfortable and homely. The breakfasts were the best B&B ones I have ever experienced and I do love my food. I will definitely be back! It also helps having a B&B next door but one to two local pubs!

Our 3rd short break in the last 6 months says it all! All very "home from home" and a special mention of the bread - superb! Thanks again.
P and L from Manchester, May 2014

A wonderful Holiday
A wonderful holiday! Thank you so much for your hospitality - you really go the extra mile for your guests with your tea and cake on arrival and brilliant recommendations of places to go and see. The room was wonderful and plenty of room for 3! We are feeling well cared for (even if a little more tired than when we arrived due to all our walks!). Thank you for everything.
R, P and T from Wiltshire, May 2014.
