Property Description

The Old Bakery dates back to the 17th century with a Victorian addition that once formed a shop front, so the property is surprisingly spacious and full of character interest. Semi-detached, it lies in the heart of the village of Brading with its historic church, stocks and bullring and Antique Doll/Toy museum. There are tearooms and pubs serving food, a fish and chip shop, general store open until late every day, and a post office. The larger towns of Ryde and Sandown are a 5-10 minute drive away, with sandy beaches and many seafront attractions. Open countryside is only a 2 minute walk from the house. Nunwell House and the Roman Villa are within walking distance. Brading Station is served by old London tube trains which link up with the steam railway. There is a sheltered walled garden, suitable for children, though they should be supervised. There are lawns, shrubs, fruit trees and a small, decked area. It is an ideal holiday property for families, a good base from which to explore the island by car, and for walkers, has the attraction of having the round-the-island bus service nearby to extend their range. The island is noted for its network of footpaths and cycle tracks through varied countryside, often along disused railway lines. Shop 20 yards, pub 25 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The old bakery is a lovely quirky cottage with a wonderful history. It is very well equipped nicely situated. April 2012.
  2. Very spacious and cosy for the seven of us spanning three generations. Not a new build with precious objects so the young children were free to play without fear of causing damage. Kitchen great - space for cooking, eating and recreation. March 2012.
  3. The Old Bakery is comfortable, quirky and great for slightly older children. We had five 10 -13 year olds and they liked having their own space but also playing hide and seek in the property. The house is well-equipped and clean. There is also a small park and playing field with goal posts which proved invaluable! Local shops and pubs very close-by. Aug 2011.
  4. Great location, easy to get around the whole Island. Comfortable, quirky accommodation. July 2011.
  5. We really enjoyed our holiday, the weather was excellent and all the information that was needed was to hand. May 2011.
  6. The cottage was very nice and we would use it again. Nice and clean and tidy and plenty of games books, well recommended to other people. Feb 2011.
  7. The accommodation was spacious and situated close to public transport so the teenagers could explore the island independently. Comfortable homely, enjoyed stay. June 2010.
  8. Very spacious to a good standard. March 2010.
  9. The property was spacious yet cosy with a lovely wood burner in the lounge and very comfortable beds. Feb 2010.
  10. Great garden really good accommodation if you have children. July 2009.
  11. The property was extremely spacious and the kitchen in particular provided a good place for everyone to meet up and talk. June 2008.
  12. Fantastic property for a big family holiday - full of character, well-equipped and spacious. Aug 2008.
  13. The property is very well positioned for exploring the Isle of Wight. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the large communal space of the kitchen, as well as the smaller, intimate space of the sitting room. Jan 2007.
  14. Accommodation is larger that the brochure describes and the garden an excellent size for a family. Would definitely use again. Aug 2007.
  15. Great holiday, ideal location to see the island. July 2006.
