The Old Rectory is a charming, former rectory dated backing to the 18th century, constructed of blue lias limestone with brick wings. Throughout the property there is a true flavour of the old world character as one would expect to find in an unspoiled Grade II listed property. A 19th century addition to the side of the house has resulted in a well-balanced family residence. The property offers a wealth of traditional features including French windows and shutters, tall ceilings, panelled doors, flagstone floors and charming fireplaces.

To the front of the property, a gravel path leads across the front garden to a metal gate, which was once used by the the vicar to go to St Peter's Church. Adjacent to the drawing and dining room is a lawn with deep herbaceous borders and mature beech hedges. This lawn stretches round to the rear of the sitting room and kitchen with a box hedge. A rose archway leads down to an area of fruit trees and an extensive kitchen garden with individual beds framed by box hedges containing a variety of fruit and vegetables. In addition there are rose beds and herbaceous borders. The main and kitchen gardens are separated by an old walkway of espalier fruit trees and box hedging, which leads to the tennis court, adjacent to which is a tractor shed. To the side of the house is a useful brick building consisting of a coal shed and wood store and workshop and potting shed with covered access to the kitchen. The gardens and grounds amount to approximately 1 acre.
