The Old Rectory

Welcoming, comfortable and excellent breakfasts…

At the end of a long gravelled drive is this Grade II former rectory, standing proudly on a hill next to the church in this lovely Leicestershire village in the heart of the rural countryside. The building has many unique features and was externally decorated using crests and stone figurines dating back to 1732.

Upon arrival, expect a warm greeting by your host, Raili or her daughter Alexandra and offered a welcoming afternoon tea served in the drawing room. An imposing oak staircase leads past the guest dining rooms and lounge to a galleried landing where resides the three luxurious bedrooms - beautifully decorated king size, twin and single bedded guest rooms - all with televisions, hospitality trays and quality toiletries.

The bed and breakfast bedrooms overlook the traditional fruit orchard, formal topiary yew trees, landscaped flower beds and a walnut tree known to be grown from walnuts taken from a renowned Motte and Bailey castle mound in Hallaton in the 11th century- a touch of history that Wolsey Lodge guests visiting Leicestershire will appreciate.

We appreciated a warm welcome, a comfortable room and excellent breakfasts. All well up to the usual Wolsey Lodge standards.
