Great family weekend at the old rectory, good house all of us had a great time plenty of room well equipped kitchen and all the en suite bathrooms suited our party of 20 ranging from 2 - 82.
The outside space and games room were a hit with all and the weather was good for us hope to return sometime.

“This place is amazing!”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent 3 nights here for our family reunion - party of 24 including 4 young children - and absolutely loved it. Inside and outside spaces are excellent and the games room was a huge hit. Bedrooms galore, brilliant kitchen and dining facilities and plenty of comfy sofas. Cannot recommend it highly enough

“Excellent for big family gathering”
Reviewed 7 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Great house for large family house party. Lovely large house with enough en suite bedrooms and lounge areas to cater for large extended family. Excellent games room, extensive grounds all set in a pretty location. The kids loved the space and the house was warm and welcoming. The second time we have used the Old Rectory and it is superb for a large family gathering or all ages.

“fabulous venue - what a weekend”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I was looking for a place to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends and family, and I picked a winner. The accommodation was extremely spacious, the bedrooms comfortable and airy, and the games room was a great bonus. We had so much fun playing pool, table tennis, bar football, and at times it got quite competitive. Thank you Richard for such a wonderful place..
For an alternative place to eat, I would recommend the quirky White Horse. This pub does have a small kitchen, and whilst the meals were staggered, the food was home-cooked and lovely. We all felt very welcome, and made full use of the piano...oh yes, we provided entertainment for the locals..

“Fantastic Stay!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Stayed here with a large grou of ladies for a friends hen do. As on of the bridesmaids Richard was very quick to reply to get things organised! The house was spacious for all 32 of us. The rooms were clean and very well equipped. The kitchen was fantanstic and played a vital role in allowing us to prepare for a mammoth afternoon tea which was spectacular in the large dining room. The games room played host to sumo wrestler suits which was used by all ages. The garden allowed us to have a bouncy castle - although the weather wasn't on our side for the whole weekend. Richard was fantastic in allowing us to have these on site. The whole party loved the house very much so and were overwhelmed over the amount of space there's now talk of making it an annual event. Went to the White Horse pub on one of the evenings where they catered for us all and the food was fab for the price we paid. We even forgot we were 10 minutes from home!!! Highly recommend this place for family events, & large groups of friends who want a weekend getaway. I'm sure in the summer a BBQ and a game of rounders would be fantastic in the garden. Thanks to Richard and pauline for all your help in making a memorable weekend so brilliant for so many people including the bride to be most importantly.
