from the first phone call to the parting handshakes the morning after our wedding we felt very very looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here. The gardens are amazing for photos. The meal was excellent. The package price was very reasonable. I can honestly say we were made to feel very special on our special day. Choose this venue for your wedding and you will not be disappointed.
Words can't describe how amazing this venue is

Words can not express how amazing and perfect this venue is as a wedding venue. Craig, Tina and the whole team are amazing with nothing being too much trouble from the day of booking the the day after our wedding. A special mention has to go to Tina the co-ordinator here, she goes above and beyond at every step she can and nothing is too much trouble for her. You only have to ask her once and the job is done, she really is a star and made our day so special. The venue itself is stunning including the grounds, the area for the ceremony and the whole venue. All of our guests said how amazing this venue was and we have never heard so many people say how beautiful the food was and the best buffet they have tasted in the evening. Every guest has only gave us positive feedback. The hotel rooms at the venue are added bonus to allow you to spend the next morning with family catching up over breakfast, which is also divine. If you are looking at this venue then there really is no need to look any further, The Old Rectory really does tick every box and the staff could be the icing on the wedding cake. Thank you Tina, Craig and all the team
A huge Thankyou to the old rectory!

Me and my husband got married here on Sunday 23rd October this year and we really couldn't fault this venue at all. Everything went smoothly and the staff were very welcoming and happy to help with whatever we needed especially Craig who couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much and the food was absolutely delicious. Overall an amazing day and venue, it has everything you could possible want or need to make your big day special! Thankyou so much for everything xxxx
Good evening Kirsty. Thank you for the lovely review and letting us be part of your wonderful day. We wish you and Jonas all the joy and happiness for your future together. Craig

No words can express how perfect this venue was for me and my husband. Our wedding was run by amazing staff who were so kind and calming. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and I recommend anyone to go and see it for yourself as the pictures really don't do it enough justice. The space is a great size, and we were lucky enough to have our ceremony outside on the beautiful grounds in the sun in OCTOBER! And to make it even more perfect was returning inside the venue to a cosy fire. It was the most romantic and perfect ambience all thanks to The Old Rectory.

I cannot express enough how fantastic this venue is.
Craig and Tina made our day perfect from the moment we booked.
We were left with no worries and were able to enjoy our day.
The whole ceremony and the food (Both the sit down meal and the finger buffet) were amazing.
Thank you to everyone involved at The Old Rectory for making our day as perfect as it was.

My Husband and I got married here on 17/09/16 and the venue was beautiful, Tina ensured the day went perfectly. I had my heart set on tying the knot outside, but it was slightly chilly for that, However I am so glad we got married inside- it was so intimate. The food was amazing, and everybody enjoyed it! A huge thank you to everybody at the Old Rectory who helped to make our day every bit as wonderful as we had imagined it would be!xxx

Wow wow wow honestly anyone who is getting married this is the perfect venue, the grounds are stunning as Is the building, so many wonderful outside photo opportunities. Our Daughter Charlotte & Husband Chris got married here yesterday it was planned to be outside but of course with our great British weather that didn't happen.
It was just as perfect having the ceremony inside set out beautifully couldn't ask for a nicer venue, the hot and cold buffet was the best we have ever had everyone said how wonderful it was and how much variety there is literally something for everyone you will not be disappointed at all.
The evening buffet was just as nice the chef and staff did such an amazing job we cannot thank them enough, we were so impressed with everything and would 100% recommend The Olde Rectory to everyone you will have the most perfect wedding day ever here.
Thankyou again for making our Daughter and Son in laws wedding day one to never forget from the bride's parents Sharan and Dean Adlem smile emoticon:-) xxx

Thanks again, Mr & Mrs Good x

We wanted a very small wedding and the Old Rectory was just perfect for this. Guests who came raved on about the food, the place and general atmosphere!
We had the best day and we are thankful to the staff for making this a special day for us.

"My son was married here and it was a beautiful day from start to finish! There really was that family atmosphere from all the staff! The venue is lovely, the service was excellent and they do everything to make sure you get the perfect day?? As one of my family said......if Carlsberg did weddings and families...... Then this would be the perfect place. Thankyou so much."
