The Bear Bakery, Colyton, Devon

We bake handmade sourdough bread on the premises, using a range of flours


These include Organic Whole White & Spelt and depending on time of year would usually include such loaves as Bears Boule, Bear-ly White, Sundried Tomato & Oregano Boule and 50% Spelt Tin Loaf.
Keep an eye out for our Slow Proved Organic Loaf and our Honey & Raisin Boule.

Our old school donuts have become renowned and share counter space with danishes and other sweet things. Great with our ‘bean to cup’ coffee or mug of tea.

DOGS WELCOME : friends with paws are welcome – they can enjoy a drink and free dog biscuits too.
After a long dog walk relax with your pooch at The Bear Bread Bakery & Kitchen.
Unfortunately we are not able to allow dogs in the bedrooms.
