Our Easter stay at the Old Rectory was a totally wonderful experience, from the warm welcome from the lovely host Julie and offer of complementary cream tea, to the stunning surroundings and fantastic food at breakfast. The room had every facility imaginable, a very comfy bed and a small sofa to relax on whilst partaking in the complementary tea and... More

We went for a brief honeymoon and were blown away by the lovely room, in a Georgian house with a beautiful garden. The hospitality of our hosts, Julie and Michael, was first rate and we will definitely be returning to what is Kessingland's best kept secret!

It was my boyfriend's birthday and Julie had sweetly decorated our room after a request to make it a little special for the occasion and had arranged cream tea for... More

We stayed here for two nights and were greeted with superb accommodation, wonderful hosts and delicious breakfasts. On arrival we were offered a cream tea accompanied with a choice of hot drinks and shown to our room. To call it a 'double room' was an understatement- it was a suite. Quaintly decorated with a separate bathroom, closet and arms chairs... More

We wanted to see something of the Suffolk coast and luckily found this gem of a B&B. We were made welcome as soon as we arrived and the room was very comfortable with everything we needed. The complimentary cream tea on arrival was a pleasant surprise. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice on offer. The location proved just right... More

We've stayed at The Old Rectory twice in the past 6 months and can thoroughly recommend it. It has a real country house feel, tucked away up a long gravel drive and set in beautiful gardens. The hosts Michael & Julie Lennon were so welcoming, providing those little extra touches that made our stays at The Old Rectory so enjoyable,... More

How lovely it was to see you again for your second visit to The Old Rectory and we are so pleased that you found everything 'excellent'! Thank you very much for your lovely review. Hearing so much laughter and chatter, around the dining table over breakfast, is just great. Hope we see you again later in the year. Julie x More
