A superb property in a lovely location, which made our holiday extremely enjoyable. Our family, 6 adults, 1 baby and 2 dogs arrived outside the old rectory to find that it was just as impressive inside as outside. This property oozes character, is spacious, well equipped and an ideal retreat. The views from the house are spectacular and there were Read moreplenty of local walks for the dogs. The enclosed grounds were very well maintained and added to the whole experience. Highly recommended. Hide

The Old Rectory is a wonderful property in which to spend ones precious holiday time. It is spacious and very comfortable with the most tremendous gardens and views. We were one family group of parents with adult children and partners. We could spend time together in a space that allowed us to be together and separate as we chose. The house and garRead moredens were a major part of our holiday and had one garden that was a wonderful space for a badminton competition. We have already rebooked. Hide

This house was absolutely perfect in every way. It was so well equipped and felt like staying in a family home rather than a holiday rental. We stayed over Christmas and arrived to find the house had been decorated for us which was a lovely touch.

The house is lovely and fitted out to a very high standard. The location is right on the edge of the village and within easy walking to two local pubs and shops and the nearby beaches are very clean and have wonderful sand. A really lovely property I would recommend.

Beautiful rectory, completely and tastefully redecorated throughout, fantastic for dogs. Well-maintained, large mature gardens, a good number of bedroom/bed variables for different family groupings. Beach only 5 minutes drive, lots of local amenities in village within walking distance. Loads of space to spread out if people want to do different thiRead morengs but also cosy communal spaces to get together in (large kitchen with Aga, snug, sitting room, dining room). Highly recommended. Hide
