“Having spent a week at the Old Rectory in Chulmleigh with family and friends, I can think of no better house in which to celebrate a special occasion. It is cosy yet spacious, spectacular yet simple and has many facilities. We especially loved the snooker room, the gorgeous swimming pool and sauna and the tennis court. A feeling of warmth and inclusion reverberates through this old house that makes conviviality easy and yet there is always a nook or cranny available in the house or in the grounds for those in need of a bit of solitude.”
