A beautiful building in wonderful surroundings. The room was first class with great views. Claire and Nick are wonderful hosts and we felt very welcome and comfortable during our stay, the breakfast was perfect and we would recommend The Old Vicarage B & B as a great place to stay!

Possibly the most beautiful house in the most beautiful of settings. The host and hostess were both absolutely lovely and kind hearted people who make you feel at home the minute you arrive. As an additional bonus, their two dogs, Biscuit and Lottie were also very friendly and playful. 10/10 for comfort, 10/10 for hospitality 10/10 for the breakfast. Would...

I stayed here in January with a few colleagues from work. Such a nice little B&B. Clean, homely, warm characteristic place in the heart of the countryside. The rooms are spacious and the facilities are great! Breakfast is very nice as well. I would definitely return if I'm back down that way.

We stayed at the Tack room at the cottage. It has an oversize bed with a large ensuite. Claire is a very lovely and nice landlady. Her breakfast just amazing, I am vegetarian and the vegetarian sausages where the best I ever tasted. She had very good suggestions for our daily tours. I can only but recommend this wonderful B&B.
