My sister my mother and I arrived on Friday evening for a two night stay. Having forgotten our driving instructions and arriving with only the postcode (and SatNav) we were met by David looking out for us at the gate with newly-arrived puppy, Tilly.
Helle immediately arrived to meet us with half-brother Teddy (both beautiful Border Collies and very friendly). We had the beautiful light and airy top floor with a twin and single room and private bathroom - all beautifully decorated with many lovely personal items for guests to enjoy. Every little thing was thought of (including a little box of every item that you might have forgotten - these things are not normally considered). We spent our first evening watching a DVD in the lovely, cosy Sitting Room with a blazing open fire. Breakfast was taken in the lovely bright breakfast/dining room. Unsurprisingly all excellent locally-sourced, good quality produce and the best coffee we've tasted for a long-time. Helle gave us lots of advice on places to visit and there is much to see locally. We had a super meal at The Three Daggers (just 1.5 miles away),
The Old Rectory is most definitely a home from home - nothing is too much trouble for David and Helle. By the time we had spent our two nights with them we felt part of the family, and we were very sad to leave, but will certainly be returning. We could not speak more highly of our couple of days. Thank you David and Helle, (and Teddy and Tilly!!)

We came here for a two-night weekend getaway and break from the children. David and Helle made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived, bringing us tea in the cosy, antique-furnished guest living room and lighting a fire especially for us.

Set in beautiful grounds, this is the place to come if you want a peaceful and quiet escape. Breakfast is delicious, the house is spotless and elegant, the bedrooms are spacious, light and comfortable, the hosts are relaxed and friendly... what more could you want?

PS. Be sure to visit the Three Daggers nearby if you enjoy excellent beer and pub food.

Room Tip: We stayed in the top-floor room. It is the more private of the two rooms but there are some areas where the ceilings are low so take care if you're tall!

My wife and I arrived on Thursday 17th October to a warm welcome from David and Teddy the dog. We were shown to our room which had a lovely comfortable bed, en suite bathroom, TV, tea and coffee and fresh milk and water was supplied.

We stayed two nights so were able to enjoy two fabulous breakfasts served by Helle and David, with a choice of cereal, toast, full English, home made granola and a wonderful choice of organic and local jams and honey, all served up in a wonderful dining room or on summer days on the patio.

We had a lovely relaxing time at The Old Rectory, would go back again and highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed with Helle and David at The Old Rectory last month (September, 2013). From the moment we drove up to the gate & were greeted by Teddy the friendly Border Terrier, we just knew that it was going to be a great experience. By the end of our stay, it felt almost as if we'd been staying with old friends, and after three nights, we were genuinely sad to leave. Helle has thought of every detail to make her guests' stay perfect. She contacted us in advance and made sure we had dinner reservations at a nearby gastropub for the evening we arrived. In our room we found a wee "emergency" box that includes any necessities one might have forgotten to bring--and there was even a bit of chocolate for chocoholics in need of a fix! It's the little things like that, as well as the warm welcome and friendly conversation, the comfortable beds, the delicious breakfasts, the adorable Border Terriers (Teddy & his new half-sister, Tilly), the homemade biscuits, the fresh milk outside your door every morning, not to mention the beautiful house and garden. Basically, The Old Rectory is just wonderful. We can't stop thinking about our stay there, and I'm betting we'll find our way back before too long!

Hi there you two,
What a lovely review, thank you so much for taking the trouble to write it. We hope you had a super time in the south of England - and got to listen to some super music.
We would love to see you again so do pop in if you are ever back in the UK again.
Very best wishes
Helle, David, William, Teddy and Tilly

We have just returned from a five night stay at the Old Rectory and what a wonderful time we had! Helle and David were perfect hosts, so welcoming and kind. They recommended several local places to eat and to visit. Our daughter was besotted with their dog, Teddy, and Helle invited her to accompany them on Teddy`s daily walk which made her holiday! We were positively encouraged to enjoy the house and use the beautiful sitting and dining rooms whenever we chose. Helle and David even provided some board games for us to play during the evenings! Our room was large and the beds were comfortable. Our daughter had the next door room. Everything was spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were excellent with all the produce locally sourced. By the time we left we felt like part of Helle and David`s family, it was rather like a visit to a favorite aunt and uncle! We cannot recommend the Old Rectory enough and we will certainly return as soon as we are able to.

HI there all,
Thank you for your kind review, it means a lot to us. We hope you had a really lovely time and some nice weather during your last days of your trip to England.
It was such a pleasure having you all and we are sure Teddy missed his new friend when you left. He - as we - would be delighted to see you back here at The Old Rectory Wiltshire sometime.
Very best wishes from us all - especially from Teddy!
