Stayed in the self-catering cottage (5 person) as a last-minute getaway. Looking at the website and photos, was slightly dubious about the space/sleeping and catering facilities. However, on arrival, was pleasantly surprised. Finished to a much higher standard than we were expecting, and the location was convenient (although the main road was definitely 'there'!). The kitchen was reasonably well-equipped, but... More

My husband and I have been staying at The Old Rectory for 23 years, the rooms are charming as is the whole building and we always receive a friendly welcome and the breakfast is one of the best. I love this place I always have and always will.

It's the great guests like yourselves who make the business worthwhile after 20 years. We really appreciate your comments. Hope you liked the new paint work in The Deans. More

One of the best features of this B&B is its location, just a few minutes walk from the centre of Lacock, so you don't need a car to visit the Abbey and Museum, nor to get to the restaurants in the evening. The Rectory also has good Wi-Fi service, which is a great help as mobile reception in the village... More

I arrived late for a business stay and this seemed to fluster the staff slightly. The room was large, comfortable, clean and accessible so that was great. I place a great deal of importance on a quiet night's sleep and did not get this completely as the house is old and quite creaky, so people moving about above my room... More

Myself, my wife and our 3 year old stayed at the Old Rectory for two nights. Its the first time we have used a B&B with our son so were interested to see how it would work. The family room was great, it was certainly large enough for the three of us and the breakfast was excellent! I'm sure we... More

Lovely weekend visit, stunning big Gothic style house and grounds and great location. Very welcoming and loved the dogs, ruby and missy. Great breakfasts and one of the best scrambled eggs I've ever had!

Very nice location in the beautiful town of Lacock, Wiltshire. Building is not as old as the village, but has it's own charm. Rooms are large and well-equipped. Breakfast proposal is limited and not always well supplied. Breakfast preparation can take quite long. Wifi available, but not working. Street indications can be improved, especially coming from the South. Owner recommends... More

Elaine Sexton and husband, Paul, have run The Old Rectory as a B&B for ten years, but it is Elaine's childhood home because her parents bought the rectory from the outgoing clergyman 50 years ago. Consequently, the Old Rectory has a comfortable, lived-in atmosphere of a family home where you feel more like a welcome visitor than a paying guest.... More

Our stay at The Old Rectory was wonderful! The B&B is located a short walk up a path from the small, charming town of Lacock. I had an English breakfast of tea, toast, beans, mushrooms and egg (I think I had a sausage too? I don't recall, but I remember there were options that you could pick from. It was... More
