Dating back to Georgian times, The Old Rectory has in recent years undergone extensive restoration and refurbishment, with the end result being an imposing property with a luxurious blend of traditional charm and features, with modern facilities and contemporary style.
The Old Rectory has a homely ambience, with reception rooms that are perfect for your whole group to gather together and socialise, or for more intimate soirees. Traditional furnishings and woodburning stoves add a certain warmth - you'll find inviting spots to curl up on the sofa with a favourite book, or for a cosy chat by the fire.
The bedroom suites have all been named after the previous rectors and their wives who lived in the house; an interesting touch of times past. Considerable thought has gone into ensuring the ensuite bathrooms are especially relaxing; the ultimate luxury is to lie back in a bath full of bubbles and gaze out on the beautiful countryside!
Set at the foot of the wild and scenic Quantock Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), there is much to see and do in the surrounding area. Right on your doorstep are plenty of opportunities to explore the breath taking scenery, whether it's on foot, by bicycle or on horseback; or perhaps you'd prefer to pootle about the quiet lanes and wind up at a quaint country inn to put the world to rights over a pint of local ale, or a laid back pub lunch.
Not far away you'll find some wonderful places to visit; stroll around Dunster and see the fairytale castle that looks over the streets. Get the steam train to Watchet and have fish and chips, or for good old fashioned seaside fun head to Minehead or Burnham-on-Sea for the day. Go searching for amonites on the beach at St. Audries Bay or Kilve; stop for cream tea at a cosy little cafe. It doesn't take long to get to the county town of Taunton where you can browse the many shops and eateries, or why not venture over to the Somerset Levels and visit mystical Glastonbury with it's colourful streets and the famous Tor. Pack up a picnic and take a day trip to the beautiful and diverse scenery of Exmoor National Park; you'll find windswept rugged heaths, rolling hills with wooded valleys, and steeply plunging cliffs with unspoilt beaches.
The Old Rectory is an ideal location for a whole weekend or week of celebrations for weddings held at nearby St Audries Park.
