We are generally a little bit conservative with giving top markings, but this B&B definitely deserves a top recommendation. We, a family from Germany with a 10 year old child, have chosen this B&B during a round trip through South England and Wales and stayed here for four nights. On arrival, we got a very warm welcome and felt instantly... More

What a wonderful old house in a beautiful old village! Helle and David are the warmest, most welcoming hosts we've ever encountered and I wish we could have just moved in! The room was fantastic, the breakfast was delicious, and we were welcomed like family from the moment we booked the room. My husband and I both have celiac disease,... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Old Rectory after being recommended by a friend. Helle and David are exceptional hosts and they have a beautiful home which they were happy to share with us. We will definitely return. The weather was glorious and we will not forget homemade elderflower cordial and lemon drizzle cake in the 2 acres of... More

Thank you very much, Helle, David, William and the Dogs for your perfect Treatment. We enjoyed so much "living" in your wonderful house, staying in this beautiful landscape of Coulsten.

I stayed at The Old Rectory while in Wiltshire for a wedding. Helle and David welcomed us with tea and scones and couldn't have been more helpful. The house and gardens are beautiful, food excellent, beds comfortable and owners lovely. I enjoyed my stay tremendously and hope to be back before long!

We went down to Wilshire for a friend’s wedding. Helle & David were so welcoming and made us feel right at home. The tea & scones were particularly appreciated after a busy day of helping get everything ready for the wedding. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet, peaceful and restful stay The Old Rectory is the perfect retreat!

Tracy and myself spent two wonderful days in this lovely bed & breakfast, couldn't fault anything about it. Helle was welcoming from the moment that we arrived and couldn't have been more helpful with where to go and eat. The cooked breakfast was excellent. Helle once again thank you very much for a lovely stay. We will be back Tony... More

This is the best B and B my husband and I have ever stayed at, in England or Canada. We recommend it whole heartedly. We were welcomed like family, the breakfast were delicious and fun, and the room was cosy. Thanks again Helle and David.

Stayed for two days this July. Perfect location, perfect place and perfect hosts. Many places have one or two of the 3 main ingredients but this has all three in abundance. Love it and will stay again!

We spent 8 days in the Old Rectory which is very well located in the heart of Wiltshire and the ideal starting point for our sightseeing trips in the proximity. The Old Rectory is a charming house, tastefully furnished with a lovely garden - in short "We love it!" From the beginning through our departure we felt very comfortable and... More
