“Exceptional hide away!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

We booked two of the three rooms for our one night stay.After booking we received an e mail from Barbara, confirming the booking and the parking arrangements. Upon our arrival at the Old Rectory,we were greeted by a warm and friendly couple, Barbara and Graeme. The tea and cake upon arrival, after a long journey was a lovely surprise!
It was very much appreciated.
The house and garden is impressive upon arrival, and when you enter, it is absolutely lovely. We were impressed with the decor, the front aspect and the general homeliness of the house..
After our tea we went to our rooms. We had booked two of the three rooms, the Chesil, the double, and the twin. There is a further, grand room called the Dorchester , which was occupied so we never got a chance to peek at that, but the web page makes it look adorable.
The double has a sea view, beautiful furnishings, an ensuite shower and toilet, and a couch, very comfortable bed , cosy, oh and if you need it a digital tv, and dvd . There was a variety of tea's and coffee, in the room and also shower and hair shampoo.
The twin room is the same , but the bathroom is separate from the bedroom, my mother and sister shared this room and did not want to have to conduct their ablutions in front of each other, so this is the best compromise. Barbara and Graeme provide robes so that the 3 feet between the bedroom and the bathroom, provides the privacy and still ensures that the occupents have the sole use of this bathroom/ shower. I think this has been very well thought out and is a really good idea.
Where do i start... Breakfast, was amazing. Barbara is a great cook. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, her own museli is a must. The full english will set you up for the whole day! Tasty and plentiful. Even for a big man like me!
The house is very tidy, clean and exceptional as a place to rest, for a weary traveller. It is also a home from home , and somewhere , that you can be assured you will be able to sleep relaxed, and ready for the rest of your travels.
I have no relationship to the owners and have never met them, prior to our stay.
Thank you Barbara and Graeme, for looking after our family, and making us feel so welcome.
We would not hesitate to recommend The Old Rectory, to anyone. Oh and by the way, excellent value for money!!

Room Tip: There are three. Dorchester has its own balcony sea view, and a roll top bath. The others are a doub...
