The Old Rectory

Carlton Rode

This wonderful Grade II listed rectory is located in the quiet hamlet of Carleton Rode next to the charming Grade I listed church of All Saints. 

Our Story

Old Rectory Preserves is an artisan maker of a range of multi-award-winning preserves, jellies, chutneys and marmalade created by Annabel Anderson, a former finalist on tv’s Masterchef. Our range of flavours is inspired by classic combinations of fruit and herbs, and where possible we use heritage fruit varieties giving our preserves a unique tast​e. 

We aim to create products that are deliciously different while maintaining our principles on how good food should be made, using top quality, locally sourced ingredients with no artificial additives​. Old Rectory Preserves is a producer member of the Guild of Fine Food and Proudly Norfolk Food & Drink

The Old Rectory has a long and fascinating history - records show that there has been a dwelling place on this site since 1032, and Annabel has traced the names of every resident and owner back to 1307. The current house combines an early Tudor oak-beamed core with a classic George II red brick facade and later additions that include the former village Sunday School. The school bell tower is still in use!
