The door to your stay at The Old Rectory


This stunning house was originally constructed in 1826, with a proud heritage as an old Vicarage. This much is still evident at the property, with many quintessentially English touches; however following an extensive restoration and update in 1994 the property offers luxurious accommodation to satisfy even the most demanding of travellers. The house manages to combine opulent furnishings and grand rooms with a warm and homely feel, creating a relaxing environment in elegant surroundings.

One of the Old Rectory's bedrooms


There are five acres of landscaped gardens beautifully restored to their Victorian splendour, with Maltese fossilized limestone balustrade and steps to the lower lawn concealing a Grade II Listed Victorian grotto nestled in the walls. There are various garden areas including a croquet lawn, extending into woodland and pasture land totalling around 20 acres.

Elysian's Review

The Old Rectory is such a beautiful property. The interiors are beautifully furnished yet welcoming and homely, with understated luxury throughout. The rooms are spacious and full of light, and the wonderful setting affords stunning far reaching rural views. The amenities are no less impressive, with a beautiful pool area, Jacuzzi, games room and tennis courts, and stunning grounds. The added bonus of being walking distance to the pubs and restaurants of Chulmleigh and within easy reach of the coast is a real plus, if you find you can drag yourself away from this wonderful home!
