This light lovely airy room lets you sit on sofas and see the garden, read or think peacefully, walk, cycle, explore or just relax. The Old Bakery, now a Studio Pottery, is close to the interesting ancient mediaeval church. Exeter, Honiton, famed for antiques, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis are nearby.
Ottery St. Mary is set in an area of outstandingly beautiful countryside, full of places of interest to visit, with great walking, cycling, if a little hilly, or just mooching around. The Old Bakery House, up the hill from the mediaeval church and within site of it, has been renovated and is now a home and attached artists ceramic studio. I have one large light room with double bed, that incorporates its own sitting area with sofa, chairs TV and wifi, overlooking the garden, with sole use of bath or shower room.
I also have a smaller double room, if available, that can be for single use, at a reduced rate if both rooms are booked at one time. Please see separate listing if you want to book both. (Bakery Blue Room.)
I provide a generous breakfast of yoghurt and fruits, breads, scones or crumpets with home made jams and jellies and cereals.
There are Pubs and Inns and an excellent restaurant to walk to, opposite the church and loads more in villages surrounding the town. I have been based in Devon since 1984 so know a great deal about the area.
Guests are welcome to use the house for breakfast or take it in to the garden. There is tea/coffee making possible in the rooms. I can park one small car in a narrow access courtyard on the opposite side of the road or there is quiet road parking close by. Do stop to unload luggage outside the house door first. I have a map to help show you possible on road parking places nearby.
Общение с гостями
I will be fully available to give advice and help from 7 am. to 10 am. and on arrival. Please let me know your expected arrival time if possible, through the Air BnB site as the mobile signal here can be unreliable so I do not always get a text or voicemail here.
Другие важные подробности
It would be really helpful to have some idea of your arrival time, if possible, at least a day before you are expected using the Air BnB communication message system. Mobile phone signal here, and some parts of Devon, is not always reliable and so voicemail may not get to me.
I am always available from 7 am to 10 am every day for breakfasts and also to greet guests, when you arrive, provide keys and any help with car parking. I know the area well and am happy to help in any way.
Washing and drying is possible by arrangement for a small fee.
I do have a gentle dog who lives here, but he is happy to be in his other bed in the studio and away from guests if necessary. If you wish to bring a pet, please let me know in advance.
I have spent many years teaching Fine Art BA in a university in london and am now setting up my own work shop making things in clay in Devon. I am also offering short Ceramic courses at my studio.
