It has a traditional farmhouse kitchen complete with obligatory four oven Aga. Whilst the house may be period it does come with benefit of some modern comforts such as underfloor heating in the first floor bathrooms and zonal heating.The Rev Thomas Morell lived at The Old Rectory from 1737 to 1784. As the librettist and partner of Handel, he wrote world famous operas such as Judas Maccabaeus, Theodora, Jephtha & Joshua.But it is not just the lovely décor that make this house so special. The gardens and grounds are equally impressive and with the beautiful 12th century Church to look upon, not just from the rooms inside the house, the garden holds equal intrigue.
