During our time at the Old Rectory North we stayed at both the Rectory and Grooms Cottage. Between the two kitchens, two livingrooms, three bathrooms, and four bedrooms we had ample space for six people. The homes were clean, warm (winter month), and had provisionals in the kithchen and bath that eliminated extended shopping. We picked up a few items at the local grocery store within 10 min of the home. There are many pubs in the area that serve great comfort food but do call ahead to see what time they are seating and if they take reservations. Both homes were decorated for the holidays and champagne awaited our arrival. If considering a trip to London the train picks up within 10 min of the home and has free parking. Very close to highways if driving. Both Rosemary and her husband Peter made themselves available to all of our needs and were a wealth of information on the local area. Very easy booking system with the use of Paypal. It would be our wish to go back to the Old... more

We hired The Old Rectory and Grooms House for the day/night before my daughter's wedding for some guests and the bridesmaids to stay and get ready for the wedding. It was all so perfect. We had a most wonderful and beautiful stay the day/night before the wedding, the night after the wedding and part of the next day. It was enjoyed by everyone because the Old Rectory was so well equipped, everything was ready for our stay and nothing was too much trouble by Rosemary and Peter. The location was fantastic and the views stunning. What a building with so many bedrooms and little rooms for everyone to be able to relax in. I cannot say anything bad about The Old Rectory all just good words. Fantastic. more

My wife, young son and parents in law had a wonderful 8 night stay at the Old Rectory. The service from Peter and Rosemary was excellent, all comforts were provided and nothing was left out. They were very friendly and helpful to us with plenty of tips on where to go and how to enjoy ourselves. On arrival we found that they had even left us a package of goodies including fresh eggs, milk, strawberries and wine

The location of the house was perfect - very near to several picturesque towns, villages and local pubs. Since it was also not far from the M5, it was an easy drive from Heathrow Airport. During our stay we made several excursions not only around Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, but also further afield to Stratford on Avon, Wales, Somerset and Devon. Each was an easy day trip.

The house itself is a hidden gem, more than 500 years old but the rooms are well laid out, well furnished and comfortable. The setting is perfect. The house stands alone, far...
