Being as disorganised as ever we arrived in Cornwall for a short break with no-where to stay. Actually, we started off in the Gower Peninsular but changed our minds (another story). We arrived tired and dishevelled but immediately fell in love and booked a 2nd night. This hotel has been lovingly and tastefully renovated to provide high quality accommodation. Our...

The place is beautifully decorated, the rooms are comfortable and very spacious and the en-suite is done to such a high spec that you press a button and it starts raining! :) We stayed in room 2 and you get the bonus of a balcony facing the river which...

We only stayed at the Old Vicarage for one night, but we had a great time. The hotel is set in a really beautiful and peaceful location, overlooking a river. Our room on the top floor was immaculate and comfortable. The couple who ran the hotel were very friendly, and the breakfast they served was very tasty - and it...

Booked here for a couple of nights after our regular B+B in Cornwall had no availability. Had a quick look through Trip advisor and found the Old Vicarage. The reviews for this place are not wrong. We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our room, a lovely clean room with a lovely finish to it. The little...

We stayed at this luxury B & B four years ago when it first opened and really enjoyed our visit. We decided to have an Autumn break in Cornwall and planned our visit around a return The Old Vicarage. This stay was even better than the first! We received a very warm welcome and although we were offered an upgrade...

Fantastic place to stay. Warm and welcoming with lovely comfortable and well appointed rooms. Breakfast was very inclusive with a friendly surrounding of guests who were mostly repeat customers and hosts. This is one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in!

What a lovely couple our hosts were. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were amazing. All had been individually designed in exquisite detail with a true craftsmans touch. The shower rooms were constructed to a very high standard and were amazing. Breakfast was of the very best quality and plentiful. Beautiful surroundings and ample local knowledge completed our stay.

Everything was perfect. One of the best breakfasts and you're spoilt for choice. The breakfast room is stunning. Honesty bar in the kitchen is a great touch.

The old Vicarage is locate down a peaceful lane which transcends onto the River. The Old Vicarage overlooks the river with dawn, sunset just spectacular. The Hosts Marylyn & Husband are just the bees knees with fantastic attention to detail making one and all feel very comfortable and at peace. The service excellent and personal, the breakfasts to die for....
