“It was good to be back...”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We battled the London traffic and two accidents on the M25 knowing that when we got to The Old Rectory, all would be better. This was our third visit and arriving slightly later than we had hoped - 10.15pm - we were a little worried that we would disturb our hosts. How wrong we were...as soon as we came through the gate, out came Helle, David and the new addition to their family - a little puppy called Tilly - and gave us the familiar, lovely, warm welcome that we've been treated to on every visit. We slept well and were then treated to a delicious breakfast in the morning. This is one of our favourite places and we look forward to many more visits...

We had a wonderful trip, truely relaxing and more like staying with friends than a b&b- so much so we nearly forgot to pay. Fantastic breakfast and a very comfortable enormous bed. Will be going back as soon as we can.

We always take great care when selecting a place to stay in, no matter how short the trip. On this occasion we came up trumps again as we could not fault The Old Rectory. Nestled in a lovely quiet rural location, it is perfect for a quick ‘hit and run’ as well as a more lengthy stay. Helle and David could not have done more for us, not being phased when our arrival time changed twice and was certainly awkward, and our departure coincided with their own long haul trip. We had an exceptional room and a perfect breakfast to set us up for our own long days travelling. We did have time to stroll around the deer park where we saw an impressive white deer. Our border collie was also welcome, and thankfully well behaved, although he did have an impromptu swim in the pond! A super stay, albeit far too brief.

This is most certainly the best B and B we have ever had the pleasure to visit.
Helle and David were perfect hosts giving us a warm welcome on arrival together with Teddy who is a great little dog to have around.
The house and garden provide a wonderful tranquillity not often found these days, in a lovely part of Wiltshire.
Our room was all one could wish for, well proportioned, bright and with lovely flooring and décor, immaculately clean and likewise the en-suite bathroom, also no nearby traffic noise giving us a great nights sleep.
Breakfast was delicious with local produce and great smoothies that kept us going for most of the day.
If we were able to give six stars, we would, we'll be back.

Dear David and Chris,
Thank you so much for your six stars - and the rest of your absolutely lovely review. It was a great pleasure having you, and those two lovely hounds although we only saw very little of them.
We hope you are enjoying some autumn sunshine and look forward to seeing you back here at The Old Rectory Wiltshire sometime.

Stayed for two nights and was simply wonderful. Perfect hosts - Helle and David made me most welcome and couldn't do enough to ensure I had a good stay. The house is beautiful and so refreshingly spacious. Full range of tasty breakfast. Very peaceful location. Well worth telling my friends about.

This the best B & B in which we have ever stayed! Helle and David are the perfect hosts - their attention to detail and their ability to make you feel totally at ease from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave is just fabulous. The Old Rectory is a really lovely house and Helle concocts the most wonderful breakfasts - and tea and homemade flapjacks in front of the fire!
We cant wait to come back - we so enjoyed our stay, which was made even better by Teddy!

After traveling throughout Great Britain for many years, have found the perfect B&B. Wonderful accommodations with all the amenities you would wish plus warm and friendly hosts. Helle and David are great cooks who prepare breakfast from local organic produce. The lemon cake with tea on the porch was just what was needed after a long day. Reservations were made for us at two good local pubs and hand drawn maps were invaluable when the GPS didn't work! We regretted saying goodbye, especially to Teddy, the four-legged cohost.
