The Old Rectory is a really lovely place to stay: a gorgeous, English country house, which has been beautifully furnished and decorated by its owners. We arrived on a sunny afternoon and enjoyed tea and cake in the glorious garden, which our clean, comfortable and spacious bedroom overlooked. Jenny & Chrix made us feel very welcome and we were served... More

I found this tranquil B&B online after much searching. It turned out to be just what my husband and I were looking for. We were greeted by the owner and settled in the beautiful garden for tea, cake and a welcoming chat....perfect.

I try to avoid prosaic titles when possible but The Old Rectory fully justifies what I have written. This attractive building surrounded by beautiful gardens, with spacious rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms plus the bonus of a Bechstein grand is only one half of the story - the other half is the warm welcome and attention which Jenny and Chrix give...

The Old Rectory is everything a bed and breakfast should be. I stayed one night recently and will certainly return If I am in the area again. A warm welcome, a spacious, comfortable room and bath together with an excellent breakfast made for a relaxing stay. The coffee is also 5 star.

We've just spent two nights staying at the Old Rectory, and it couldn't have been better. Jenny and Chrix were amazing, tending to our every need. We were given a cup of tea and melt in the mouth shortbread on our arrival, then shown to our room, overlooking the beautiful garden, and with its own en-suite bathroom. I have rarely... More

We stayed one night only as we were in the area for a wedding. The welcome and stay were very friendly and warm. The hosts were lovely, the room was spacious and had a great view of the garden which was in full flower, the breakfast was a lovely home-cooked, traditional breakfast. The ensuite bathroom was modern and spacious. The... More

We had a fabulous stay at this lovely B & B. Chrix and Jenny were the perfect hosts. The room was spacious, the beds comfortable, the breakfast lovely and the building and surroundings were pictures. Couldn't have wanted a more perfect place to stay. Thank you for you hospitality and friendly nature.

I can only endorse what others have said. If there is a top two or three B & Bs in the UK, this is amongst them. Jenny & Chrix are generous and warm hosts and go way beyond the basic minimum to make one welcome.
