"Brilliant location for a large group including children"

Perfect venue for a large group get together and child friendly. Good flexibility in terms of room hire - the fewer the rooms the lower the cost, and a really versatile space. Games room and large garden with bbq are great for keeping all entertained with pubs and walks nearby.

Will be coming back later in the year!

"Fantastic Family Friendly Getaway"

We hired the Old Rectory for a weekend to celebrate myself and my fiance turning 30 this year and we had both of our families to come and share the celebration with us. It also served as a 'get-to-know each other' for both families before our wedding in May.
Richard the owner was incredibly helpful and welcoming and after seeing us into the 'house', left us to our own devices. We were amazed at the size of the place. Even with 23 of us the place was still plenty big enough for everyone to enjoy their own space if needed.
The bedrooms were ample and each had its own great en-suite facilities. The games room was a hive of activity for most of the weekend, hosting many round-robin tournaments. The kitchen was brilliantly kitted out with enough crockery, cutlery etc. to cater for an army. The focal point was the dining room however which when full felt like a medieval banquet hall.
The whole place was perfect. There was something for everyone whether it be a 9 mile walk around the local reservoir, game of tennis on the nearby courts, frame or two of pool in the games room or quiet read in one of the lounges.
We would definitely recommend The Old Rectory to anyone looking to house a large group for a few days. We are already looking forward to having an excuse to do it again - perhaps for our 31st?

"Beautiful house, plenty of room."

I booked the Old Rectory for a work retreat. 11 of us stayed, each had our own en suite and there was plenty of room for all of us in the dining room and sitting room. The house is beautiful, I had many compliments on booking it! Beautiful area as well, would recommend the Old Rectory for large families or groups. The game room is a added bonus!
