We booked here on a late deals for 2 nights. The room was huge like being on escape to the country! A massive breakfast day 1 has a smaller one day 2. Loved being able to have fresh fruit salad for breakfast too. Very quiet location, WiFi in the room and tea coffee making facilities. The owners were lovely not in your face but there if you needed them. We would go back again.
Very nice property in a nice location. Conveniently located to visit south of Cornwall. Room was also very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was also great with lots of choices. I'd definitely go back if I was in the area again.
Friendly welcome, very impressive room and en suite with more than comfy furnishings. Delicious home cooked breakfast and loved the fact you could chose what time to eat. stunning grounds around the hotel we enjoyed walking around and taking in the beauty of the Cornish countryside.
Lovely quiet location, a couple of miles from Marazion, down some pretty, narrow roads. Enormous, airy and comfortable suite with glimpses of Mount's Bay. We chose to go out straight after our perfectly prepared and presented breakfasts and return mid afternoon to relax and shower prior to going out to eat. Our hosts were very pleasant and the house was beautifully presented.
John was absolutely lovely and understanding that we arrived late due to horrendous traffic, room was very nice with en suite bathroom and very clean. The breakfast was very nice, even for me and my boyfriend who are vegans. Location is brilliant, close to St. Ives, Penzance and Lands End.
If you require peaceful accommodation then this is it. A very old looking vicarage with lovely surroundings. It has its own Patina as the antique dealers say which makes it rather attractive. Hosts first class. Good quality breakfast, very attentive and efficient. Room very large, spacious and clean.
We visited the Old Vicarage last summer while we were visiting Cornwall. The location is beautiful! If you are looking for a quiet place surrounded by the beautiful nature this is the place to go. The place is very friendly and the rooms are very spacious. The breakfast was very tasty and it was a good value.
My daughter and I stayed 3 nights at The Old Vicarage and were so impressed by the large, comfortable room (suite really), the location, the breakfast and, most of all the friendly hospitality provided by John and Rosie.
We took advantage of the equestrian facilities and went riding. The stables and horses were really top class and our escort on the trail ride was knowledgeable and friendly.
Lovely location. Very spacious and comfortable family room. Excellent breakfast. Ideal location for seeing a lot of Cornwall. Very quiet and peaceful. The Crown Inn about half a mile away served excellent meals.
Looking forward to another visit.
The b&b is in a very peaceful location with large gardens and ample parking. The room was split level with a separate bathroom and dressing room. We were able to have our dog with us which was good. The owners have horses and riding is available. Breakfast was excellent and lots of it!
Second visit to the Old Vicarage. Enjoyed as much as the first. Fantastic breakfast. Lovely secluded location but close to many places of interest. Would recommend Trevellayn Arms pub about half a mile away if you want a meal.
"Wonderful Break" - We strongly recommend The Old Vicarage the service was excellent. The full English was one of the best we have ever had and the fresh fruit salad - GREAT. Everyone was very pleasant and we enjoyed our stay and intend to go back
What can we say - best week ever! Best people ever, best horses ever! Thank you all so much for a great learning experience - we know which way we are going now. See you all very soon!
Fantastic break - The accommodation and service was well above expectation. Would love to stay at this location again. It was peacefully situated, but not far from many attractions.
Great welcome and hospitality. Fantastic riding lessons, we had a wonderful time. Thank you so much!
Thank you very much for all! I have enjoyed everything here with every beat of my heart and I am sure that I will come back. It felt so good here with your family and horses
We had a wonderful break here in this warm, friendly and consumately professional B&B. Thank you
"Warm and welcoming with first class service." - Our stay was very pleasant with staff that cared. I loved the fact that it was tucked away down an old track. The breakfast was out of this world, everything you could wish for
Beautiful setting with very friendly and helpful staff. Top notch B&B
Thank you for your kindness and hospitality. Surely the breakfast must be the best in Cornwall ! and The Old Vicarage is beautiful.
"A great riding holiday with lovely people, horses and scenery!" We stayed at the Old Vicarage for 5 days riding as well as accommodation. It was a perfect location both for exploring the area and to take advantage of the variety of riding activities offered.
Thank you for the unique experience you have provided for us. You have a lovely, charming B&B, beautiful horses and warm welcoming company.
Spacious room - What a nice surprise to find a room in which one could swing not one, but several cats. Gemini was a beautiful room, thoughtfully furnished and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious.
Lovely B & B with real charm. The staff were friendly and very welcoming. We stayed in the Gemini room which was very spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent.
Lovely place to stay - was home from home, Loved it!
A beautiful guest house set in serene and gorgeous surroundings. We stayed in the family room which for both of us was huge. Very comfortable beds with clean crisp linen - whole room/place was clean. The food was good solid English - with lovely adaptations for a vegetarian! Hosts were very friendly as were the people in the stable yard.
If you want somewhere quiet and peaceful, then this is the place to stay, we spent bank holiday weekend here and loved it, felt relaxed and chilled all weekend. We was just a bit gutted we didn't try the horse riding or horse and cart while we was there, next time it is a definite though.
What a lucky find! The internet can indeed be useful sometimes! Lovely room, good layout, nice touches and attention to detail and the riding was good. Thank you Chris, Julia, Rosie and John for notching up my self-confidence a little - something I badly needed. And your horses are great.
Thank you for the best weekend I've ever had. I've done things I never dreamed i'd get to do and loved every minute. The horses and people have made it perfect, not to mention the great room and breakfast. Looking forward to coming back next year
This B&B is definitely an excellent place to stay. We (2 adults and 2 children) had two double rooms (because the family room was already booked) for the price of one family room . That means we also had two bathrooms which was great. Both rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated.
