A generous welcome, splendid house, very quiet and good food. A little idiosycratic but none the worse for that. A friendly and relaxing stay. Plenty to see in the locality and pleasing to return to the haven of peace and quiet to be so well looked after by Claire and John for whom nothing was too much trouble.

We booked a room here for Sunday evening and arrived mid-afternoon to the warmest of welcomes. The room we had on the second floor was huge, beautifully appointed and with a massive en suite with shower and entirely separate bath. The toiletries were very high quality, as were the fluffy towels, and everywhere was spotless. We didn't eat in for... More

As soon as you arrive at The Old Rectory and are met by owners Clare Dawkins and John Miller you feel that you are guests in the home of friends rather than paying customers. The well-appointed house manages to be cosy and spacious at the same time. Visiting in an unseasonably cold March, the roaring log fire in the drawing... More

We celebrated my 50th birthday in style with 6 couples at the Old Rectory. It was a truly memorable weekend; Claire and John were the perfect hosts and we had a marvelous 5 course candlelit dinner followed by a delicious breakfast the next day.
