The Old Rectory is a stunning Grade II Listed property offering accommodation for up to 26 guests across the 13 bedrooms. The building is rich in history, having been the Rectory to the Parish, and retains much of its original character.
Almost all of the bedrooms are en-suite and the property benefits from a commercial style kitchen, excellent if you are getting caterers in for your stay! You will also find a well-equipped games room, a family room, a drawing room, a sitting room and a very large dining room. The property has been utilised by large groups looking to holiday in the area for many years. Both the inside and outside space is extremely generous, and this property is certainly perfect for your next large family gathering or group holiday!
Outside the house are extensive gardens which include a number of beautiful mature specimen trees, flower beds and shrubs. There is a south west facing patio enclosed by shrubs, creating a BBQ area which gets the sun throughout the day and into the evening. The patio leads onto expansive, well kept lawns which are perfect for outdoor games, relaxing or sunbathing.
The Old Rectory is located in the quiet and charming village of Tattingstone, which is on the Shotley Peninsula, with the River Orwell to the north and River Stour to the south. The area is in the heart of Constable country and designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with lots of fascinating sites to visit including Flatford Mill and Dedham.
Directly opposite the Old Rectory is the Alton Water reservoir, incorporating 400 acres of beautiful countryside, where you can hire equipment to sail, paddle board and windsurf and purchase one day fishing permits. You can also hire bicycles and there is an eight mile rambling and cycle route around the reservoir along with a small café. It is also a popular bird watching area.
Within the village, there are two pubs, playing fields with a children’s playground, a tennis club open to visitors and a fresh produce stall at the farm next door. The well regarded Kings Head pub is a five minute drive away in Stutton village. The property is a 12-minute drive from Manningtree, with direct trains from London Liverpool Street.
