The hotel is wonderful with fabulous rooms and superb food. The staff are all very friendly and service professional. The hotel is close to the South West Coastal Path and we walked direct from the hotel... More

We only stayed for 1 night, as a wedding anniversary gift from our children. We were made most welcome by Sam on arrival and shown to a really nice room overlooking the grounds. The room couldn't be faulted, the food that Huw cooked was amazing, and the walks in the fantastic Devon countryside are not to be missed. I'm sure... More

We wanted somewhere close to home that offered a quiet location with easy access to Exmoor and the North Devon coastal path, and high quality in every department where we could celebrate our marriage and a 50th birthday. We found it in spades at The Old Rectory Hotel. Huw and Sam have created a haven where relaxation, whether indoors or... More

If you want to rest and relax, in very comfortable and beautiful surroundings, with spectacular scenery and fabulous food, then this is the place to stay. We stayed 3 nights and have had a fantastic time. Huw & Sam and their team cannot do enough for you and you feel special. We can't wait to return!

This place is great! Lovely getaway and complete relaxation for a couple of days. Food is fab, service is personal and it's in a great place. What's not to like! We will definitely be back again and it's perfect to go for a weekend treat.

From our welcome on arrival, through our superb accommodation and delicious food, we enjoyed every minute of our stay and cannot wait to go back again. (Already booked!) This is our favourite hotel and we shall remain regulars. We are treated as friends and regard Huw, Sam and the team likewise.

A very special hotel in idyllic countryside where guests are catered for perfectly. Breakfast and dinner were superb, with a good choice of fresh local produce very well cooked and expertly served. Rooms were tastefully furnished and very well appointed.

Having stayed at The Old Rectory in 2014 for our 17th wedding anniversary, we returned this year to celebrate our 18th. Sometimes, returning to a place where you've had an excellent first experience can fail to live up to expectations. This was not the case with The Old Rectory. The rooms, the setting, the food, the wine and the friendliness... More
