The Old Rectory Hotel and the Covid-19 Pandemic

Our world continues to change daily, and with heavy hearts, we are sorry to say that The Old Rectory Hotel is now closed.

We have received many messages of support and encouragement from many of our guests to keep the hotel open but we now feel there is no option and it is our responsibility to be part of the national solution to stop the spread of this horrendous virus.

We are working through the list of guests who have bookings with us over the next few months, to discuss rearranging their stays for later in this year when we will all need a holiday or to cancel. This is a huge task so please bear with us!

Whilst none of us have any idea how long this will be for, we are working on the assumption of 12 weeks or so. This period lines up with the employment support measures announced and we promise to keep in regular touch with you and as soon as we have a clearer picture you will hear from us.

Our reservation team will continue to work remotely and will be happy to take reservations from Monday 22nd June onwards.

Looking after our staff and guests is our number one priority and we do not make these decisions lightly but we have to work together in these difficult times and do all we can to bring this under control so we can look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.

On behalf of all of our team, I would like to thank everyone for such tremendous support during this challenging time - stay well and we hope to see you very soon.

Kind regards

Welcome to The Old Rectory Hotel

The Old Rectory Hotel is a very special place – an award winning haven to escape to, relax and recharge. No crowds or traffic to disturb the peace; just birdsong and jaw dropping scenery, and we’re just off the South West Coast path in the staggeringly beautiful Exmoor National Park in unspoilt North Devon

We have 11 individually designed, beautiful bedrooms and a reputation for great food which we source from our fabulous local larder

If you’re looking for somewhere to spoil yourself and soothe the mind you really couldn’t choose a better place.
