Thanks to researching sites such as Wolsey Lodges, Alastair Sawday and TripAdvisor over the years, I have been delighted to find some truly wonderful accommodation in my time. I have to say that The Old Vicarage is vowing for top honours as one of the best places I have stayed. Firstly, you have the superbly renovated gothic Victorian house, which... More

The Arundel Society prints captivated us; as did the hosts, the top notch food, the splendid bed, with blankets (not duvet), the garden design, and perfect peace. Our stay here was very special and we are delighted to have experienced this haven.

Everything about The Old Vicarage is exceptional -- the house itself is stunning and immaculately restored. The owners are so lovely and outdid themselves with the breakfasts and room amenities. The gardens are really stunning and meticulously kept, and the location is ideal and very peaceful. It was a perfect stay. And I should add that the bed was the... More

A wonderful birthday weekend - a repeat visit for the rest of my family, but my first time. I found the gardens wonderful, the atmosphere and furniture most eclectic, but comfortable and homely and the welcome and service super. The meal cooked for us on the Sunday night was outstanding and beautifully thought through and cooked. The berry and chocolate... More

We were two couples from Denmark touring Southern and mid Wales for 10 days and had decided to end the trip with something special. And indeed it was special. The house, the garden, the individual rooms were all charming , and so were our hosts Paul and John. Fortunately we had preordered the three course dinner, which was nothing less... More

As you step across the threshold of The Old Vicarage you're transported back into a world designed by Augustus Pugin and decorated by William Morris. Your hosts, John and Paul, have lovingly and painstakingly created a uniquely sumptuous home, which we're all lucky enough to be able to experience for ourselves. Make sure you arrive in time for afternoon tea... More

The pictures on the website offer only a glimpse of the really special decor and fantastic grounds. This really is a unique property and the warmth of welcome matches the surroundings. Cuisine is a priority here. Paul's... More
