We recently stayed for 3 nights at The Old Rectory. It's a lovely old building. The room and bed (master bedroom) were very comfortable and the fruit and chocolates were a lovely touch. Thank you Julie for your very warm and friendly welcome with afternoon tea, also for your excellent breakfasts along with advice of places to visit and booking... 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

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

We booked a weekend away here with less than a week's notice. With only three rooms available, we were lucky to get the last room available for November 14-16. We arrived at around 7pm after a long journey on the A12 out of London. The hostess, Julie Lennon, brought us a cream tea for two to our room, which was... More

We had an absolutely lovely stay here. Julie was very accommodating. The room was lovely and big with all the necessary amenities. It is only a short walk to Kessingland beach and is easy to reach Southwold, which is beautiful! We would definitely stay here again!
