Bake (Cornish: Pobas) is a hamlet in south-east Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) west of St Germans at grid reference SX 321 585, 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) south-west of the A38/A374 Trerulefoot roundabout.[1]

Bake is the seat of the Moyle family (although Bake itself is in the civil parish of Deviock) and St German's Priory has a mortuary chapel for the Moyle family of Bake.[2]

West of the manor house, a steep tree-lined valley called Bake Wood runs down to the River Seaton.[1] At the top of the valley, seven artificial lakes are commercially operated as Bake Fishing Lakes providing coarse fishing and fly fishing.[3]

There is also a place called Bake in the civil parish of Pelynt.[4]
