The Bake House is a historic, period home located on the High Street, close to the centre of the village. The property has many lovely character features including exposed timbers, a pretty fireplace and stunning brick floors in the hall and kitchen. The cottage is full of character and charm, yet still has all modern comforts including central heating and a first floor bathroom, it also does not suffer from the low ceilings often associated with this type of property.
