This place is special.Beautiful old house in lovely gardens with a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere that invites all guests to make themselves completely at home. This is exactly what we did! All facilities are of the highest standard and you can expect a great night's sleep followed by an excellent breakfast with extra touches such as home-made bread and jam. The location is perfect too with numerous lovely walks straight from the door, and a handy village pub just at the end of the drive. What makes The Old Vicarage special, tho', is the way that Nicky get's it just right when it comes to hosting - the welcome, the help and advice given if needed, and the easy, laid-back, and yet extremely professional approach. The absolutely gorgeous house-dog that is Maisie is just the icing on the cake!
