My sisters and I had a very pleasant stay here. This truly is a delightfully charming place to stay. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated throughout. Our room was extremely spacious and provided a great nights sleep. The breakfast was superb. Fantastic hosts. A real gem that we will return to very soon.

When I booked Caroline said they were full, but offered us the old school house, which is normally a self catering let. I'm pleased she did, as it was a fantastic space to stay in with a lovely lounge and very comfortable bedroom - all newly converted and pristine throughout. We didn't see any of the rooms in the big... More

We had 2 nights at The Old Rectory in June 2014. It was wonderful. The property has been beautifully restored and is surrounded by lovely gardens. Our room was beautiful too very comfortable and spacious and immaculately clean. Caroline gave us details of some fabulous restaurants where we were lucky enough to get in and we had 2 beautiful dinners.... More

My partner and I have just enjoyed a great 2 night stay at The Old Rectory B&B. We were greeted very warmly by Caroline who showed us where breakfast was served, the communal lounge and up to our room (we stayed in Sherbourne) and all its facilities. First impressions were very good with no complaints and that remained throughout our... More

My husband and I have just returned, {3rd Sept 14}, from our second stay at The Old Rectory Country House B&B. A big thank you to Caroline for making us so welcome. She treats her guests like "old friends". The rooms are gorgeous. The grounds are lovely. The hospitality is faultless and the breakfasts are endless. The property is in... More

This is the best B&B we have stayed in. A beautiful house kept to the highest of standards. Caroline was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome, doing her best to help us wherever possible. The quality showed throughout, to the smallest detail (real fruit juices for breakfast and a fab fryup with quality sausages).Even when we managed... More

We stayed for six nights at The Old Rectory in the "four poster " bedroom which was spacious and comfortable . Caroline was very welcoming and provides an excellent breakfast . We enjoyed the quiet village and comfortable bed , it was just lovely and we would use again without a second thought.

Found the Old Rectory Country House a few years ago and my wife and I recently returned for a few days short break. Believe that the best way to describe the Old Rectory would be to start with a blank piece of paper and then write down all of the aspects that you would ideally like to see in a... More

A visit to The Old Rectory is more than a clean and comfortable bed and a bountiful breakfast. It comes with the most gracious hostess, Caroline. The rooms are beautifully decorated, giving you all of the most modern conveniences while keeping the charm you are hoping to experience when staying at a historic home. The grounds, buildings and location are... More
