Description

The Old Rectory dates from c.1835, a detached two-storey building with rendered stone elevations and pitched tiled roofs. The property was the subject of a recent extension to the rear conservatory which increased the amount of covers and provided a bar server and disabled toilet. At the same time the private dining room was converted to a newly fitted commercial kitchen.

In addition to the Old Rectory, there are three separate single-storey buildings with rendered elevations under pitched tiled roofs that contain 18 of the 22 letting bedrooms. We understand these were constructed c.1990, and c.2007.
