Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stayed here on Saturday night. Lovely property and great welcome. We arrived late and were shown round and provided with a welcomed cup of tea and offered cakes. Our evening meal was also sorted out for us at a local pub, the Berney Arms (which I can also recommend!). We stayed in the Courtenay Room which was a lovely big room with equally impressive en Suite. Would definitely come back

We arrived on a Friday night after a weary trip and were greeted by the nicest people you could wish for. The rooms were all prepared with a real welcome feeling. The pool is set in lovely gardens overlooking the meadows and the view at the back of the house is from a picture book.

All in all we were well looked after and whatever we asked was no trouble for the lady of the house or the other staff!

Flowers from the gardens adorned the place and we were made very welcome especially at breakfast.

We will return again without fail as there is so much to see locally and within 20 miles

Room Tip: Its quiet everywhere in the rooms and in the house

From the beginning we felt relaxed and at home. We were welcomed with tea and cake in Veronica's garden which we could happily sit in for hours over looking gorgeous fields. My husband and I were looking for a B&B in a wonderful location, clean and dog friendly and The Old Rectory far surpassed our expectations and ticked all our criteria.
The room was gorgeous and immaculate. We had feared that dog friendly meant that cleanliness would be overlooked however the rooms were amazingly clean and wonderfully presented. The house is close to the town with a wonderful pub that serves great food. It is close to National Trust Halls and wonderful gardens. It is a great place to unwind, relax and simply enjoy the surroundings. We definitely recommend it and look forward to going again!

On arrival, we were shown to our room, the Courtenay, which was beautiful There was a large bowl of cream and yellow roses together with Norfolk lavender in the bedroom and a posy of flowers in the spacious bathroom. Veronica, our charming hostess, served us tea and cake in her idyllic garden. The house is in such a tranquil setting that we spent most of our time reading in the shade of the rose pergolas and swimming in the pool, the first time we have smelt roses while swimming.The Old Rectory is a happy family home and Veronica and her daughters helped us to feel relaxed and very much at home. Breakfast was served in the conservatory which looks out over the garden. We are looking forward to our next visit.

I stayed at the Old Rectory last week, my second visit this year! With a warm and friendly welcome from the owner, I loved my elegant room, with the en suite bathroom accessed through the doorway and down a few steps, Everything was so clean, comfortable and beautifully presented. Stunning views and a heated pool make it a special break. yummy scones for tea and a great breakfast I look forward to a return visit

Stayed at the Old Rectory in the beautiful Earl's room for three nights, was a very lovely stay in a gorgeous b&b- the hosts were very welcoming and made for a relaxing visit. the room itself was really warm (plus a hot water bottle!) and luxurious, and was a great break from the city.
The village has a fabulous National Trust house, Oxborough Hall, which is just across the fields from the Old Rectory and also close to the Bedingfield arms, a lovely pub and place for supper.
overall would highly recommend as lots to do nearby and the Old Rectory was a peaceful and scenic place to spend a few days!

Was a Fantastic weekend stay. We were received by the managers young, charming son, who offered us complimentary tea and cake after showing us to our room.The Earls room was extremely comfortable, with a delightful bed, and en suite bathroom. After an excellent nights sleep ,we were given breakfast in the main house at our requested time. The full English breakfast was hearty, while the smoked salmon and scramble eggs was delicious. There was plenty of information on the local attractions and places to eat out. The local Pub seemed more like a London restaurant than the usual country watering hole and provided a splendid evening of dining. On the Whole it was a hugely enjoyable stay

Room Tip: The pool is outside and therefore only open in the summer months.
