Off the beaten track so a car is a must. A beautiful and peaceful place in which to relax and enjoy the garden, delicious, locally sourced food and the services of the dedicated staff. Young children not catered for.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Rectory and would love to go back. Sam and Huw are very welcoming, the food is fantastic, the wines good and the hotel is set in beautiful countryside and has been very well refurbished.

We enjoyed a wonderful overnight stay at the Old Rectory Hotel. The whole setting was perfect from the gorgeous hotel to the beautiful gardens, the owners have certainly succeeded in creating a relaxing atmosphere. Afternoon tea in the garden isn't to be missed. The Orangery was the place to be to enjoy cocktails before dinner, needless to say the food... More

Just what we expected and more, a relaxed, peaceful break. The food was delicious beautifully presented and served. The hotel has lovely grounds to wander in and the Orangery has lots of comfortable sofas and chairs to lounge and chat to other guests. Just the job to recharge the batteries.

Our second visit, breaking the journey to Cornwall. A delightful venue where we hope to stay longer next year. Any slight issues were speedily and happily resolve, nothing was too much trouble for the first class hosts.

We love Devon and to celebrate our first anniversary we wanted somewhere special to stay. The Old Rectory did not disappoint. Sam and his team were fantastic from the moment we arrived. On our first night we were presented with a bottle of champagne for our anniversary, which we enjoyed on the decking area within the beautiful garden of the... More

We had a great holiday. Sam and Huw were excellent hosts with great service. The rooms were very well presented and very clean. Can not fault the hotel in any way. The conservatory was a lovely place to sit in the evening after dinner.
