“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My boyfriend and I have just come back from a fantastic stay at The Bake House. It is a charming property in a central location in the old part of Harwich. The accommodation was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It is in a great location to enjoy the surrounding area as well as Harwich itself. We were very impressed with the quality of the property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Booking couldn't have been easier and communication with Paul (the owner) was excellent throughout.

Whilst you're in the area, we highly recommend a trip to Felixstowe on the foot ferry. There are also many lovely eateries and pubs in Harwich, highlights include The Alma Inn and The Pier Hotel. We had never visited this part of the country before and were impressed with both The Bake House and everything the area had to offer. We hope to visit again very soon

What a beautiful hideaway. This little cottage was perfect for our 4 day mini break and had everything we needed and more. It was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Paul, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful . We will definitely be back!

A beautiful bolt hole which was so needed by me as a single female. Paul Valentine was welcoming and could not do enough. I shall be back as Old Harwich is a friendly and welcoming place. Both Pier restaurants are amazing. The fish and chip shop, a Pieseas, is the best you will taste. As a runner and cyclist, the promenade goes on and on. The cottage is gorgeous. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Paul

The area is known to me and, although I regularly visit,I wanted to stay within the historic heart of the old town, rather than in Dovercourt. I knew this would be a great location but was really pleased with the accommodation itself. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped, warm and cosy.There was a plentiful supply of towels etc and cleaning products were available.There was even some coffee/hot chocolate and milk sachets available. The cottage was easily accessible with easy street parking. It was secure and would be ideal/safe for a female to stay alone. I will definitely choose to return here in preference to hotels nearby.The owner Paul was very helpful with the booking and went the extra mile to help with a special request. i really cannot fault it!
