Rectory Farm
Beautiful main building!
A beautiful main building as you arrive. ..some bedrooms in here. We stayed in the other building which didn't look as lovely but the rooms were lovely. All very clean. Stunning grounds to waney in and very lovely warm outdoor swimming pool for an early morning dip! Only negatives were the fact that they have locked the fridges in the rooms so they can't be used..we asked but they said they couldn't unlock them for us. .which in this heatwave to keep bottles of water cool etc is a must!

decent stay at Rectory Farm
Good stay. Only downside is the lack of food options for late arrivals.

A comfortable stay
Fabulous ambiance, comfortable and spotless bedroom, grand driveway down to the properties that make up this place. The facilities for weddings are second to none. It's a shame that a few things did not add up to a warm welcome, namely an unexpected car park charge, a tucked away reception, no evening restaurant and threats of additional charges for transgressing the rules card in the bedroom. Overall it's lovely though - so I hope they sort these niggles out.

Comfortable stay
Just what we needed for a quick visit: quiet, just out of town, helpful staff, comfy, no bells and whistles
