I stayed here as part of a wedding party the day before 'the big day'. It took nearly two hours to get there from London in horrendous weather conditions but let me tell you, it was well worth it. The rooms in the main house are charming and the family history steeped within the decor is fabulous. Frank, the host and proprietor, offers a warm welcome and leaves you wanting for nothing (even a cup of herbal tea before bed). The food was fabulous, particularly as we had someone in our party with a long list of dietary requirements but Frank excelled himself when catering for her. I would whole heartedly recommend The Old Rectory for any occasion. .
