Took the inlaws away for a weekend, a Christmas gift. We had a large room with day bed for our daughter (10) but both rooms had all you needed in them. Fantastic choice for breakfast, for me its all the fruits and cereals, but the special porridge done overnight in the aga went down well with others. Very quiet, very... More

Lovely hosts David and Christine, not forgetting Linda who helps out at breakfast. Really warm welcome, comfortable warm accommodation, breakfast like nothing you have had before with excellent conversation around the communal table. Nothing too much trouble. Thank you. I would recommend without hesitation

Just returned from a wonderful four night break at the Old Rectory. We stayed in Jill which was so spacious and comfortable made all the better by thoughtful touches such as milk in the fridge, super fluffy towels and bird books and binoculars on the coffee table. The breakfasts were fantastic, as other reviewers have said, kept us going till... More

Just been back to the Old Rectory for a couple of nights - it was great to be welcomed back as soon as we arrived. The room was wonderful with space and furniture that make it home-from-home as well as all the usual facilities. Fridge with fresh milk is a plus. Will be back again soon.

A very warm welcome, delightful house, very clean room with en suite. Quality toiletries, comfy bed, great breakfasts! I could go on and on. David, Christine and Linda make it all special, and we will return... More

Absolutely loved this place - can't sing its praises highly enough! Beautiful surroundings and the beach was a few minutes away. Friendly staff, beautiful rooms and comfy beds. So homely - brilliant! Thoroughly recommend the old rectory! Delicious breakfasts with a wide range on offer.

Very peaceful location, short walk to the sea. Fresh eggs for breakfast from their own hens. Excellent range of food for breakfast including Craster kippers and 'special' porridge. Communal breakfast table. Family friendly. Will definitely return again.

We selected the Old Rectory for it's location and weren't disappointed. The house is lovely, furnishing is a little 'twee' and would not necessarily be to everyone's taste. We felt it needed a bit of updating and the room was decidedly dusty. A real bonus is the fridge in the room with fresh milk and bottled water provided. David and... More

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in our home and could take advantage of our glorious location in the AONB and on the Coastal Path. Friendly chat round the breakfast table we find is the norm and the Craster kippers are a must! More
