Price Upon Request

‘Arriving at Rectory Manor is like arriving for an old-fashioned country house party, (which you secretly hope will be more PG Wodehouse than Agatha Christie)’. The Daily Telegraph could not have captured the essence of this wonderful Grade II listed Rectory more perfectly. Located in the heart of Suffolk, but just a 90 minute drive from London, guests will be immediately captivated by this private, welcoming house. With 7 individual, elegantly proportioned en suite bedrooms laid out over the main house and adjacent Old Stables, The Old Rectory has 2.5 acres of wonderfully planted gardens that are home to the house’s heated swimming pool and tennis court. The rectory, which normally operates as a 5* Bed and Breakfast, has a Gold Award from Visit England, their highest accolade possible, which guarantees guests will only experience the best in terms of facilities, style and hygiene.
