“Fabulous! All of us want to stay again!”
Reviewed 3 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I can't rate this property highly enough! Stayed with a large group of friends (12 people in total) for a birthday celebration - everyone loved it and wants to go back again soon. Absolutely loads of space and great facilities - the 12 of us cooked together and made big meals and had more than enough cooking equipment. My favourite was the huge cafetiere that made enough coffee for almost all of us! The rooms were fab and really clean, and the games room went down really well. Location-wise it was perfect for a walking weekend - we did a lovely loop walk up into the hills and back down via St John's in the Vale.
Really really fab stay, and Stephen was really helpful along all stages of booking and our stay.

Thank you for having us - we'll hopefully come back again soon :)

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The house was beautiful, with loads of space. I was staying with my large family and there was plenty of room for all. The scenery was gorgeous around the house, and the town was only a small drive away. I would definitely be back to visit

I booked The Old Vicarage for a group of 12 for my sisters hen do. As we drove down the driveway we were blown away by the beauty of the property and its surroundings. We had 4 double rooms and 1 room that slept 4 people - all of which have ensuite bathrooms. I was offered a choice by the owner if I would prefer either 3 beds to be made up downstairs or to have the extra beds put into the bedrooms, I thought it would be nice if we were all together upstairs. The kitchen was well equipped and all 12 of us sat happily around the dining table for breakfast and dinner. We made good use of the games room and even sat around the fire in the living room on the evening. Absolutely perfect venue for the weekend, I couldn't be happier and I will definitely stay again.
