Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The Old Bakery, in the small village of Mollington, is such a delightful place to stay. You will need a car, but finding a nicer place will be almost impossible. From the time we arrived, we were met by Jackie and Michael in the drive. You will be impressed by the pictures on the internet, but that is nothing compared...

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review and the nice things you said. I am so glad you all had a good time. We would love to see you again if ever you come back.

The house was just what we wanted for our annual family get together. It was of the highest standard and had everything we needed. Jackie had thought of everything even leaving sweets and colouring books for the children. We had a lovely weekend and hope to go back next year. Would highly recommend a visit.

Management response:

Just noticed that I have not replied to your lovely review from April 17. Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Old Bakery and I am delighted to be seeing you again in June and hope you enjoy your stay once again. Jackie
