Our fifth stay at the Old Rectory. From the friendly greeting of Huw and Sam began another 3 days of comfortable pleasure. More like being a house guest than staying in a hotel, every comfort, great meals and friendly staff. Will be back again next year.

We have just spent two delightful days at the Old Rectory and now feel rested and revived ready for the Autumn. The Garden looked beautiful and the weather, specially arranged by Huw and Sam, was gorgeous! The food was even better than we remembered.
