Helle's husband was away but I had a superb stay. and Helle is the hostess we all hope to be. Wonderful room and care and breakfasts from heaven. I will return as I have friends in Eddington and Coulston is a delightful drive of 5-10 mins in a gorgeous Wiltshire village. Everything you could wish for is in this stunning... More

Making our annual trip to Wiltshire gave us the chance to return to this delightful B&B. Nothing had changed-the welcome was as warm, the breakfasts as good, the dogs as delightful, the garden as lovely. We had the 'other' room this time (there are only two) and it was large, spacious, comfortable and well appointed (everything you could think of... More

We arrived late due to traffic but were given a very warm welcome from Helle as we took out sleepy children from the car she helped with our luggage. We had the whole of the second floor to ourselves. We had a very large bedroom, the children a cosy twin and beautiful bathroom. The room was well stocked with everything... More

When we arrived Helle came out to greet us. 'David and I want you to regard The Old Rectory as your home for the next three days,' she said, 'and we will do all we can to make your stay special.' They were true to their word, and we were constantly surprised by thoughtful and unobtrusive kindnesses. The Rectory is... More

We love staying at The Old Rectory - this is our fourth visit and we shall return to enjoy the wonderful hospitality offered by Helle and David. I have penned a poem which hopefully gives some idea of this superb location and its environs.

Recently had our second visit to Helle and Davids beautiful home. This stay was everybit as good as the first. Warm friendly hosts, comfortable beds and delicious breakfasts. Our stay made even better by our long breakfasts talking to the two other guests from Germany. Sorry Helle and David for the long wait to clear away.

We started our holiday week in the UK at the Old Rectory in Coulston. This turned out to be a very good choice. After a long journey from Holland with our 2 kids and dog, we had a warm welcome by Helle and David. Their house and garden is really beautiful, typical English and our son immediately got excited by... More

We stayed here when visiting Stonehenge. Everything about it was of an excellent standard. Helle and David were warm and friendly hosts and had the right balance of hospitality - we felt really looked after. We hope to return for a longer stay. The blueberry pancakes at breakfast were delicious!!

We had the "family suite", the top floor of The Old Rectory, which is pleasingly self-contained and very comfortable (two bedrooms, one bathroom). The house and grounds were lovely. The children were able to run free in the garden and even go to the village Church alone. The hosts were delightful and breakfast refined and truly delicious. How nice to... More
