This is a fascinating old house, with a fascinating history and a labour-of-love restoration by Steve (the architect) and Jane. The rooms are beautiful, elegant and restored to better-than-new condition with the attention to detail in the materials, finishes and decoration that speaks for the love of the owners. Modern bathrooms and facilities have been incorporated so sympathetically that you wouldn't know that they weren't there before, so that the elegance of previous centuries is coupled with 21st-century mod cons. But the hospitality of Steve and Jane really sets the Old Rectory apart; there are the practical essentials, like the fabulous breakfasts, but even more important is they seem very happy to chat all day if you like, on any topic you might name! Even Edward and Rupert (the dogs) are interesting, elegant, and friendly, but perfect gentlemen. There is a wealth of things to do in the area - beaches, gardens, castles, railways, boats, walks - the list goes on, and this is a great, peaceful, out of the way, but accessible (when you've worked it out) place to stay.
