This weekend we got to stay at the beautiful Rectory Hotel in Crudwell, Wiltshire, as David's brother and his wife had a blessing on their marriage in the church nearby.

The boutique hotel is in the old village rectory and is owned by an interior designer and his partner. I wasn't surprised to hear that he was involved in interiors as the hotel is beautifully furnished and decorated.

|Our room was the second and third windows from the right, on the first floor. The room overlooked the fishpond, which was once a Victorian baptism pool!|
The hotel has 3 acres of fantastic Victorian walled gardens, that have been very well looked after, and planted sympathetically. It was so lovely to relax on the lawn with a newspaper on Saturday morning - we had grandparents and uncles to keep Torin entertained!
As we had Torin with us, and our niece stayed in our room with us, we were given the family suite, the Sudeley room. It came complete with his and hers sinks in the ensuite bathroom (that was bigger than our family bathroom at home!) and a massive four poster bed.
|Our room. Can you see the lovely navy leather Roberts radio on the dressing table?|
The relaxed atmosphere throughout the place was in part due to the beautiful weather we enjoyed while staying there, but really the credit has to go to the calming decoration and eclectic furnishings, as shown here in the bar area:

Thank you Paul and Bec (yes, my sister-in-law is also called Rebecca Mellor!), for a lovely weekend!
