There is a cloakroom toilet with washbasin by the kitchen.

The sink in the bathroom is attached to the wall with a minimum clearance of 66cm underneath

We welcome any dogs, including assistance dogs.
We have a pet dog of our own (Purdy). She is not permitted in the guest bedroom or the kitchen whilst we are preparing food. However she does have access to the rest of the house, so The Old Bakery would not be suitable for anyone with a severe dog allergy.
Purdy is very friendly with everyone but she is bouncy! If guests request we can do our best to endeavour that Purdy is kept away for the duration of your stay.

We do not own cats/chickens/children! However we are a rural community and there is livestock in nearby fields. Many of the numerous local footpaths and bridal ways cross farmland.

The bedroom is lockable with a key to the external door and a bolt on the internal door.
