As soon as you arrive at The Old Rectory and are met by owners Clare Dawkins and John Miller you feel that you are guests in the home of friends rather than paying customers. The well-appointed house manages to be cosy and spacious at the same time. Visiting in an unseasonably cold March, the roaring log fire in the drawing...

We celebrated my 50th birthday in style with 6 couples at the Old Rectory. It was a truly memorable weekend; Claire and John were the perfect hosts and we had a marvelous 5 course candlelit dinner followed by a delicious breakfast the next day. The Old Rectory is beautifully decorated and every room is special; tea and scones in the...

We have just spend the most wonderful two days at the Old Rectory!!! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We were made to feel most welcome, whether we were having tea in the elegant drawing room, relaxing in our huge room, or sampling the delicious breakfast and dinner. I have never seen so many options on a breakfast menu...

I stayed at the Old Rectory two years ago with friends and loved it then but have recently spent the weekend there with an old friend, the two of us spending our time catching up in the huge drawing room in front of a roaring fire. I almost don't want to post a review because this place is so good...

The occasion was a small (8) family dinner party to celebrate my Wife's birthday. After discussing arrangements and menu with Claire and John some weeks beforehand, I managed to keep secret the venue so that Tricia had a really pleasant surprise when we arrived - the others were already there. On a dark October evening, what a pleasure to be...

The Old Rectory is charming, welcoming and very comfortable indeed. The bedrooms we used were spacious, with excellent bed-linen and toiletries, and charming antique furniture. We stayed in a family suite, with three bedrooms, a small kitchen and a very comfortable sitting room with books, games and TV. We had breakfast on two mornings and dinner on one evening. The...

The Old Rectory organised a superb reception after the wedding of my son Tom and Lubica at St James's Church which is next door. We walked from the church, through a lovely archway, into the grounds of the Old Rectory where home-made canapes and champagne awaited. Then, into the marquee on the croquet lawn for the receprion.
