A warm welcome awaited us as we arrived at the Old Rectory. Elaine showed us to our room and was extremely helpful in finding us a garage for a minor car repair. The building has lots of character and is quirky. It is clean and was well suited to our needs - we were out most of the day. From... More

We were a large family gathering that stayed here for four days. Although the decor is getting a little dated in the bedrooms they were clean and comfortable with a great level of charm. The house itself, the lounge, the breakfast room and the gardens are all lovely and welcoming and the lady of the house serves a lovely breakfast... More

Unfortunately this establishment seems to be in genteel decline. Our room needed a lick of paint and was tiny but adequate for one nights stay. The welcome booklet on our room which gave details of the Old Rectory was grubby, like the room. Breakfast had to be booked for 8.30, 8.45 or 9.00AM and pre ordered. Credit card payment had... More

We stayed here for the bank holiday May weekend and what a fantastic place we chose. The breakfast was excellent, the house stunning, our bedroom just perfect as was the four poster bed and we loved the addition of the horses and chickens. Elaine and Paul were perfect hosts. We will be returning

Lovely house, lots of fabulous features, beautiful garden and great location. The room was warm and comfortable, the bathroom was not ensuite however not really an issue. The breakfast was well cooked, and catered for special celiac diet (offered gluton free bread which was fab). The Old Rectory is an easy walk to the village of Lacock with its Abbey... More

We were a group of 5 senior couples and Elaine Sexton made our stay most enjoyable. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast suited every taste. The Rectory is on the edge of Lacock and just a very short walk downhill from the village so easy access to everything.

The breakfast list had to be chosen the night before, you ticked the various choices, but there was no alternative to the meat sausage, or bacon, which made the full cooked breakfast rather puny, and made me feel rather left out. Veggies not important to entertain? Cash or cheque only otherwise a 2.5% service charge is payable...not made aware at... More

I stayed in a lovely 4 poster room, very relaxing and full of character. It's a lovely walk around the village, perfect if you wish to bring your dogs. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. I'd recommend staying here again and I will be coming back!

Booked to stay at the Old Rectory as it takes dogs and is near one of our favourite places (Lacock Village). Terrible weather, and as arrival time is not until 5.00pm we arrived an hour early as ran out of steam walking round the village. Landlady was very friendly and did not mind at all. We were booked into the... More
