We stayed with my family including to grandchildren when attending a wedding in the area. This is set in wonderful settings with in beautiful gardens and achieving peaceful seclusion. The house is decorated sensitively to suit the Georgian period it belongs to. There is some evidence of the European heritage of the proprietors. Hello and David are a lovely couple... More

I usually do not write reviews in tripadvisor but have to make an exception here because this B&B is simply great. It was the first we stayed in during our holiday in England and it was not surpassed by any of the following accommodations (although they all were also very nice). It's a beautiful old building with a very tasteful... More

We returned to the Old Rectory again for another peaceful stay. It is always such a restful, luxurious few nights away from daily life. This time we spent several moments gazing from our rooftop window at the giant trees in the garden only for a buzzard to fly-by at eye level. It amused itself circling the nearby rooks before taking... More

We had a lovely time at the Old Rectory - Helle and David made us feel incredibly welcome. They had helpful tips for our weekend and plenty of time to chat! Breakfast was lovely and the afternoon scones on our Saturday afternoon was an added bonus. Beautiful house in a beautiful setting.
