Superb country house hotel with beautiful gardens and fantastic dining. Perfect for a special celebration and equally perfect for a wonderful walking retreat. Huw and Sam, the hosts, are friendly and welcoming..... you feel relaxed from the moment you arrive.

Our third time to visit here in 2 years. As friendly and welcoming as ever. Huw and Sam are a great team and have succeeded in creating an environment where you feel more like a house guest than a hotel visitor.

A wonderfully situated small Boutique Hotel, catering only for Hotel guests. Five minutes from the North Devon Coastpath with its spectacular scenery. Great quality appointments, lovely rooms, big comfy beds, showers that work! Owners who understand and cater for discerning guests. Friendly, unobtrusive staff. We'll come again to enjoy the Old Rectory and walk the coastpath.

A most comfortable, relaxed and civilised place to stay. Truly lovely surroundings, carefully well-appointed accommodation and excellent food. Definitely understand why the repeat bookings: I trust we shall return.

A super place for a romantic weekend away. Large and comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds and gardens and elegant but relaxed dinning room and orangery. Food was exceptional. Four course evening dinners, home cooked, and really delicious. Complemented with a very well chosen but not overwhelming wine list.
Beautiful and dramatic coastal walks available from the door.
