We had the delightful experience of staying at The Old Rectory back in 2008, and loved it so much that when we needed a place to stay back in Wales, there was no question about where to go. Viv and John, and the old house itself, remain warm, welcoming, and utterly delightful.
Situated up on the ridge at Christchurch, you have a beautiful, rural-feeling setting, and yet you're only moments from the M4 and connections in all directions.
We were back in the lovely ensuite bedroom upstairs - which seems to simply inhale sunlight. Everything remains fresh and as new, but with that wonderful homey comfort that makes it so special. The views over the yard, and over the Severn across to England, are simply beautiful, whether the day is sunny or the sea mist rolls in.
Viv hasn't lost her touch with breakfast, either - or the home-baked goods she brings you on arrival. She and John both have that knack for making you feel relaxed and at home, will help with all your local sightseeing plans, and are always willing to stop for a friendly chat.
I can't think why you'd stay anywhere else in the region.
