    Perfect venue for a perfect wedding day. The conservatory is big, light and airy and comfortably sat the 94 guests we had for wedding breakfast. The staff here are amazing and can't do enough for you, Becky the wedding co-ordinator for the hotel is probably the most calm and cool person you could wish to have sort things for you always smiling. On the day the sun shone and we were able to make the most of the wonderful grounds for photos etc, the tables for wedding breakfast were set up beautifully, our thanks also to the chefs and kitchen staff the food was amazing, piping hot. I think the nicest thing about having the wedding here was that we had the whole venue to ourselves as we also booked all the hotel bedrooms which are beautifully decorated, really comfy beds the price per night for a room is very reasonable and includes breakfast.

    We had our wedding at The Old Rectory this weekend, and we couldn't have wished for anything more perfect. From the very first time we went there, Becky and the staff could not have been more helpful. The big day went off without any hitches and Ian made sure we were well looked after at all times . The conservatory was decorated exactly as we'd asked for it to be, the food was excellent (particularly the dessert!), the bar had been stocked with what we'd requested, the rooms were lovely and the staff were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. All our guests loved the venue and it's friendly, relaxed atmosphere. A wonderful family run business. Thank you Becky, Ian and all of the staff at The Old Rectory. Xx

    Cannot recommend this place enough. We had the best wedding here. From our first dealing with Ian and Becky and all staff when booking our venue, to leaving the morning after our wedding, they have been totally fantastic. Very welcoming, helpful, flexible, fun and totally awesome! Food was great and venue is just perfect!!
