My family and I stayed here for five nights in the summer. It did take some finding, but with the help of the friendly locals we did eventually find it! The house is beautiful and the views amazing. We had hoped to book the family room but it was unavailable, an extra bed was put into the double aspect room... More

If you want a touch of luxury in a lovely rural setting then the Old Rectory is an excellent choice. The beds are soft and inviting and most rooms have fantastic views over the countryside. Breakfast is fantastic and the proprietors are extremely friendly and accommodating.

Had always been rather doubtful of staying in B and Bs until this one. Added attraction is a wonderful, cocker spaniel called Danny. He's as vivacious and lively as the landlady who is also a marvellous cook. The only thing I would like to say is that Danny has to put up with a rather odd hairstyle but I guess... More

Jill and John are great hosts and we loved the location and the dog!!!! The hike on the Moors was excellent as was the visit to Agatha Christie's gardens. The food was wonderful: both the full breakfasts the dinner Jill cooked for us.

Having read other reviews we had high expectations so felt quite disappointed with the rather brusque and rushed reception we received. On the plus side, the house is lovely and in a beautiful spot, breakfasts were very good and if the owners are polite but disintracted, then the dog more than makes up for this on the friendly front. And... More

We needed somewhere special in the South Hams to celebrate a big 'O' birthday and were not disappointed. The Old Rectory at Diptford, near Totnes, has got to be one of the best places to stay in Southern England. The house is beautiful, but cosy and the welcome was warm and friendly. Our rooms were stunning, the beds large and... More

We had the pleasure of staying at The Old Rectory to celebrate my mother's birthday, we ate an outstanding meal and drank wonderful champagne and wine that complemented the meal even more. As part of a party of six we saw two out of the three rooms and found them large, stylish and very well equipped for a b&b. The... More

We spent the second leg of our honeymoon at The Old Rectory, and loved it. The house is beautiful - a square Georgian building on the edge of the village, with a lovely multi-layered garden with a large lawn, flowerbeds and a chicken coop. The location feels blissfully remote, but is only about 15 minutes off the main road in... More

I am more accustomed to staying in hotels than B&Bs; but I was deeply impressed with the Old Rectory and its proprietors. The house looks as if the fifteen years which the Hitchins have spent living in it have been largely given over to spending lots of money on decorating it with great taste and restraint. I understand that its... More

We were lucky enough to stay at The Rectory for 2 nights in May 2006 and we cannot speak too highly of it. Jill is a wonderful and relaxed hostess and we immediately felt at home from the moment we arrived. The house is utterly charming and is full of books, antiques and art and the garden is delightful and... More
