This property turned out to be as quirky as the website suggests, and very welcoming. For us, one real bonus was being within safe as well as easy cycling distance of Southwold, so we were able to have a long weekend with plenty of exploring, without needing to get in the car. We have already recommended The Old Bakehouse to family and friends.
