Welcome Back

Good to Go England

During our VisitEngland inspection in January 2021, we achieved 100% for the cleanliness of our cottages- we have worked hard during the Lockdown to enhance these as processes we are ensuring the cottage that you have booked will be cleaned and sanitised to the Covid Ready Guidelines from PASC UK, the AA and Visit England. We have produced a Risk Assessment that covers all aspects of our business and this can be seen on demand, or download it now.

Old Rectory Cottages is a great place to stay! Our cottages are set in 7 acres of grounds and are surrounded on three sides by farmland- a haven for wildlife. Dogs are welcome at no extra cost.

As you would expect we will review all our activities regularly and adjust them when it seems right to do so, in the meantime we look forward to seeing you soon.

Guests staying during 2021 will benefit from our “no-quibble” refund arrangements in the event of a new lockdown or travel restrictions being imposed.

Sam's Stable

A clever conversion of the Rectory’s Victorian stable block has resulted in a spacious single storey property, with excellent views over the Old Rectory’s fruit orchard to the surrounding farm land. The high ceilings reinforce the ambience of spaciousness, add a log burner for those romantic winter evenings and Sam’s Stable offers a perfect retreat to escape from the pressures of a busy life.

Although the modern chic kitchen is fully equipped, if you’d rather take a break from the cooking, there is a great selection of country pubs/restaurants a short drive away and we are always happy to offer recommendations.
