The Old Rectory is a classic example of Georgian architecture at its finest, retaining, as it does, all its original architectural characteristics. The reception rooms in this Grade II listed house all have wonderful high ceilings and wide sash windows, and much of the original joinery of the period has also been retained, including door surrounds, window shutters and floorboards, and there are some fine cornices, but it’s the magnificent staircase which is the most noteworthy period feature.
