Old Rectory B&B in Salisbury England
The Old Rectory B&B Salisbury Wiltshire England Bed and Breakfast Lodgings Accommodations
Host: Trish Smith
Address: 75 Belle Vue Road, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP1 3YE, UK
Activities/Attractions: Salisbury, is in the county of Wiltshire and lies on the banks of the River Avon. It is a charming town full of quaint, lovely old houses and medieval streets. Famous due to its closeness to Stonehenge and for its wonderful 13th century cathedral.
The weird prehistoric ruins of Stonehenge stand on the Salisbury Plain a few miles away. Archaeologists date the standing stones to have been erected about 2,500 - 2,000 BC. The earth bank that circles the standing stones is thought to have been built around 1,000 years before this.
Salisbury and its surrounding area is one of the most historically rich areas of Britain. The city itself is an ideal base for visiting many of the South's leading attractions.
"I travelled through Europe last year and stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts along the way. The old Rectory was a real stand out for me, there are not too many places where you really feel like you can fully relax, and the owner really goes out of her way to help you in any way she can. I stayed there for 4 nights and visited Stonehenge, Stourhead, Larmer Tree Gardens, Heale Gardens, New Forest Cider, Salisbury Cathedral and various other places that were all very close to The Old Rectory. If you’re looking for somewhere that is quiet, peaceful, warm and close to some of England’s most spectacular attractions then I would strongly recommend you stay at The Old Rectory Bed and Breakfast."
"I would definitely recommend this beautiful bed and breakfast to travellers looking for comfort and a warm friendly welcome whilst visiting Salisbury and its surrounding attractions. Our room was just beautiful, with everything we needed and more. Breakfast was a delight, made even more so by the welcoming staff. Thank you to Trish and her staff at The Old Rectory for making our travels so enjoyable."
"We left New Zealand for a six week sprint around the UK and Trish provided us with the first of the 19 B&B's we stopped at over that period. Whilst all of these were good, and some were great- the Old Rectory was exceptional."
"The high standard of The Old Rectory with Trish Smith's wonderful hospitality was just what we needed. A great stay, in a Victorian house set in a delightful garden, quiet but close to all we wanted to visit -Cathedral, Wilton House, Avebury (which in our opinion is better than Stonehenge!). Important for us it was non-smoking and had all the facilities we wanted right in our own room -bathroom, TV, tea and coffee tray."
"This is beyond doubt the most comfortable, pleasant and well facilitated bed and breakfast we have stayed in. From the welcoming, thoughtful and diligent manner of the staff from arrival to departure, to the fact that you are situated near many of the most fascinating locations on the south coast, this truly is value for money. Sincerely Trish, Thank You."
"A nice place to stay if you want value for your money with a really cozy atmosphere. The welcoming staff makes this place an excellent choice."
"I really enjoyed my stay at the Old Rectory. The breakfast was filling & an enjoyable change from cooked breakfasts. Good location - walking distance from town. The rooms are comfortable & clean. Salisbury is a great base for the area."
"We stayed with Trish for 7 nights in February and truly enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We were in Salisbury for work-related purposes and so spent a lot of time indoors. Trish was such an attentive and warm host that we felt immediately welcomed."

"We enjoyed our stay at The Old Rectory. Trish our host was great to us. We had delicious breakfasts every morning & the B&B is a very short walk into town. This makes it quiet and serene. The twin room was spacious (for the UK) and bathroom very good."
"We have stayed several times now at this lovely B&B which is within walking distance of downtown Salisbury. The accommodations are very nice and it is very clean and well run. You have your own key to come and go as you please. The price is very reasonable, the location is terrific, the service is excellent. The owner is very helpful with directions and information about things to do around town as well."
