Welcome to The Old Rectory

A Haven in the Hills

Our Tale

The Old Rectory is believed to date back to the 17th century.  So, in 2021 when the refurbishment began, care was taken to preserve the architecture and characteristics of the building.  Today The Old Rectory has a bold beauty, fusing style and daring colours to encapsulate the outstanding natural beauty of the environment.

The furnishings bring together old and new with influences from across the globe.  Modern efficiencies make for an easy stay, while the fabrics, textures and hues, breathe tranquility.

The Old Rectory is ideal for family holidays, group getaways, sporting parties and corporate team building events.  We are dog friendly and welcome up to a maximum of two medium sized dogs.

The Kirkstyle Inn and Sportsman’s Rest
The Kirkstyle, our pub and restaurant, is literally next door.  It is recognised for its beautiful food and great selection of beers and wines.  It is very popular with locals and visitors to the area.  We recommend booking a table, which you can do by visiting the website and clicking the ‘Book a Table’ button in the top right-hand corner of the page.

Please note: the kitchen is open for dinner on Wednesday and for lunch and dinner Thursday to Sunday. The kitchen is closed on Monday and Tuesday.  Please see our opening times here.

Calling all Golfers!
Don’t miss the chance to play Close House Championship Golf Course when you stay at The Old Rectory.

We were fortunate enough to stay at The Old Rectory and eat several times at the Kirkstyle Inn next door. The Old Rectory is a beautiful Georgian House that has been very sympathetically refurbished giving it a contemporary and relaxed feel whilst remaining true to its heritage. Expect wonderful rich furnishings, the most comfortable beds and luxury bathrooms.
