I took my four year old daughter to Longleat and we stayed at the Old Rectory with Lynda and Colin for two nights. It really made the holiday special, so much so, I almost forgot to pay when we left as they made it feel like we were staying with family! Lynda and Colin are so helpful and kind. They... More

My husband & I stayed at The Old Rectory last weekend with our 7 yr old daughter. We had the family suite which was perfect for our requirements. We arrived in terrible weather to a warm and friendly welcome. Linda & Colin are excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble, they clearly care very much that their guests are... More

Absolutely first class B&B, from the lovely warm welcome (that included a slice of cake!), to the local sight seeing recommendations for us tourists! Colin and Lynda are wonderful hosts with seemingly nothing too much trouble. We stayed for a few days over my birthday and after seeing my birthday cards scattered around our room, they not only wished me... More

After my overnight stay at The Old Rectory I have to say that I was hugely impressed. It all starts with the welcome for me, and a huge welcome is what you get from both of it's owners Lynda & Colin, and after what can so sometimes be a long journey, this can be much needed. I was given my... More

Although we only stayed one night, the hosts Lynda & Colin, made us feel especially welcome. From the moment we booked the family room, after chatting to Lynda, I knew we had made a good choice. It is listed as a bed and breakfast, but the quality of the rooms and fittings were better than many hotels I have stayed... More

We went away for my boyfriends 27th birthday, the old rectory was prefect for our stay and catered our every need (and more). We stayed here for two nights in 2 of the rooms, the service was lovely! So helpful and friendly, and the rooms were very nice! I would most definitely recommend staying here for anyone of any age,... More

We could not have been made more welcome! The attention to detail in the Family Suite guaranteed a delightful stay. Run by a charming family who truly believe in hospitality, this calm, beautiful house is simply a pleasure from arrival, through a cosy night in a superb bed, to a tasty, well-presented breakfast to the final farewell. We'll definitely return.
