“A west country treasure”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Having found The Old Vicarage at the last minute we were pleasantly surprised as to how wonderful our experience was.

Maggie and Chris Knight were truly wonderful hosts and their house is amazing, it truly is a pleasure to sleep in a four poster bed in a beautiful vicarage.

As we had not organised anywhere to eat we ate with Maggie and Chris and we had exceptional food. My partner is a rather fussy eater and even she was happy (which is always a challenge!)

Overall a lovely experience and we will return should we be in the area.

We found this Guest House by chance. A member of Wolsey Lodges,we knew it would be at a good standard. We were in fact unprepared for such a warm welcome by Maggie and Chris Knight. Our room was spectacular, particularly the four poster bed which was so high even I at 2 metres used a foot stool to climb in. We chose to have our evening meal there and it was prepared and served by Maggie and Chris. Superb by any Restaurant's standard and as there is no license we supplied our own wine.They joined us after the meal for coffee and a natter.
The next morning , the luxury continued with a wonderful breakfast, ordered the night before.
As it was raining we were not able to see all the grounds including the swimming pool. but we will leave that for when we return.
A 4*-5* Hotel could not compete, on price,service, atmosphere and cuisine.
Well done The Knights, you have a winner.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the 4 poster
