We have just celebrated our wedding with families and friends at the Old Rectory. It was as said above the best day ever. Nothing was too much trouble for Pam, Mike, Jackie and all the staff and they made our day so special. The whole thing was relaxed and leisurely and went off without a hitch. Can't thank everyone enough! It was perfect and I will be shouting their praises to everyone I know. Thank you one and all.

THE HISTORY The Old Rectory House Hotel is probably the best kept secret in the Worcestershire county, it has stood on this site for several hundreds of years and has a wealth of historical connections. The house lies between the original Roman built Icknield Street, which runs along the far boundary, and the monastic carp lakes at the rear of the property. The Doomsday Book lists a building on this site in 1086, during which time Lady Godiva's son was Lord of the Manor. The Great Grandson of Sir Christopher Wren lived in the house for over forty years and made a number of alterations in that time. He completely modernised the original Elizabethan house in 1812 by adding a Georgian facade to the front elevation of the building. ... more less
