About the hotel
Welcome to The Old Rectory and experience an elegance of a bygone era at this imposing Grade II listed house, situated two minutes stroll from the beautiful and famous village of Lacock. They say "location, location, location" . .
. we've got it! Built in 1866, The Old Rectory is a superb example of Victorian gothic architecture. Now a delightful family home set in its own grounds with croquet lawn and gardens, it offers a real taste of English country life. Beyond the stables are fields and footpaths leading to the medieval village of Lacock. In the drawing room at the Rectory, play the Broadwood piano or just relax with views that overlook front garden, drive and orchard. The house boasts many original features such as mullioned windows, creeper-clad walls, stained glass windows and an ecclesiastical bell! A guardian angel is at the pinnacle of the house next to our Latin inscription - "He who listens, learns most". There's ample private and safe car and bicycle parking. Lacock is an oasis in Wiltshire, with its 17th century houses and Lacock Abbey, a gem of the National Trust dating back to the 13th century. We are blessed with excellent, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms a church and small shops. Close by is Castle Combe and the world heritage city of Bath and Salisbury and Oxford. We also have self-catered accommodation: The Rectory Cottages are two newly restored self-catering holiday cottages within walking distance of the National Trust village of Lacock. Formally old stables, the red bricked cottages are interlinked and have two bedrooms each, vaulted ceilings, modern interiors and are situated in the grounds of a beautiful victorian rectory. Each cottage has its own garden and views over fields, the rectory gardens and the orchard.

On arrival we were told by the proprietor that she was winding down the business and that was very evident.
Friendly but old building (lots of character) so bathroom (although just for my room) was across the corridor so had to get dressed to go to the loo, for shower etc, would have been nice to have a bathrobe provided and for the price I think that would be reasonable
