We stayed for three nights in this haven of peace. The welcome was warm and the room spotless, spacious and comfortable. The hotel is small enough to feel like home and big enough not to feel claustrophobic. Sam and Huw make you feel that they are glad to have you to stay. The food is beautifully prepared, varied and served with professional pride and is delicious. We particularly liked the way in which guests are shown to their tables individually, after a comfortable and friendly pre-dinner drink. Situated in a tiny hamlet, there are well marked and maintained footpaths almost literally from the front door, leading through hanging oak forests to the coastal paths. Cannot recommend The Old Rectory highly enough. We have already booked a return visit!
