Whittlebury Bakery

Whittlebury Bakery was born from a desire to provide great-tasting bread to the local community and surrounding villages. Hand-crafted and baked the traditional way using only the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients and without the use of artificial additives or processing aids our bread Is baked in small batches fresh each morning.


Following many years of International experience setting up bakeries for other people Andy decided it was time to do it for himself and in 2017 Andy’s Cake Company was born. Premises were found tucked away in a small unprepossessing industrial park in Whittlebury, where he was living at the time, and he and his wife Ela began baking daily for a handful of wholesale customers.


The local community soon sought out the source of the wonderful early morning smell wafting over the village and started buying their bread directly from the bakery.  Demand increased steadily and an adjoining shop was opened seeing the couple juggle the baking with sales to an ever-growing customer base.


They soon outgrew the premises in Whittlebury and with the backing of two new business partners the bakery moved to Litchborough and became Whittlebury Bakery this year we will be moving again to Eastcote. The shop remains in Whittlebury selling an ever-expanding selection of baked products and other locally sourced goods while the old bakery became a coffee shop serving a wide selection of hot and cold food and drinks to villagers and the wider community.


The bakery may have expanded but the bread is still made the way Andy and Ela intended, hand-crafted and baked in small batches using flour from Heygates in Bugbrooke Mills two miles down the road. Northampton grown, baked and loved!
