Happy Christmas from The Old Rectory Wiltshire


We are getting ready for Christmas here at The Old Rectory Wiltshire. Outside is wet and windy so a roaring fire is lit in the Christmas decorated sitting room. We are preparing for a traditional Danish Christmas Eve with roast duck stuffed with prunes and apples, fluffy rice pudding and Christmas carols around the tree lit with live candles.
We have had a glorious year with people here from all over the world visiting and we have shared in all sorts of lovely occasions such as a proposal, a 50th wedding anniversary (and other anniversaries), a honeymoon, birthdays, friend and family get-togethers. A lot of you have brought your well behaved dogs, much to the delight of Teddy, our gorgeous Border Terrier and recently his little sister Tilly, who is the latest addition to our family. And a lot of you have been back already, some of you more than once!
We have been in glossy magazine ‘The English Home’ and have – because of your wonderful and much appreciated reviews – made it to best of 462B&Bs in Wiltshire on Tripadvisor, a place we have kept for the last four months.
We thank you for choosing to stay with us, we have loved having you all and look forward to hopefully seeing you again.
We will raise a glass to you on Christmas Eve and wish you a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year.
Very warmest of wishes from Helle, David, William – and Teddy and Tilly!
