This is a lovely house with loads of space, light and airy, just homely. It's only 10 minutes from clean, spectacular beaches. There is a garage/shop two minutes drive away. The gardens a well fenced and safe for small children and the slope is ideal for little wheels. The family of moles was intriguing for children. Even our very old dog loved it and gained a little more life. I loved this house from the moment I stepped through the door.
The owners were friendly and very helpful from start to finish. Would definitely go back.
The Old Vicarage was a true gem of a house. We booked it for one weekend as a large group of 15; the house was perfectly sized and easily fitted us all! The Gower Peninsula was a beautiful setting, and the Old Vicarage made this an even more wonderful weekend stay. We all wished we could have stayed longer.
Alison was extremely helpful with the booking and logistics in advance of our arrival. On arrival, we found the house warm, lit-up and ready for a wonderful weekend. There are several stoves throughout the property for a proper log fire, lots of sofas and places to relax. The kitchen/dining area is possibly the highlight of the house - plenty of space for cooking and feasting. We loved the high ceilings, quality furniture and plenty of crockery, cooking equipment and other utilities.
Thank you Alison and we will certainly be back to show our families what a wonderful place this is!
Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a house for family, friends or holiday stays.
We booked the vicarage for a group of friends during a weekend in September. We had other friends and family dotted around the area in various accommodations but everybody was jealous of those in The Old Vicarage!
The house itself is beautifully kept and presented, a charming piece of architecture. The furnishings were comfortable and far more luxurious than many of our friends were expecting!
It's not often that the accommodation itself is the highlight of a weekend away. Two of our party loved it so much that they're planning to book return trips there with their families.
David and Allison were superbly accommodating, welcoming and helpful. Thank you thank you thank you!!
This was a fantastic venue for 12 of our family and close friends. We had a superb week on our favourite UK beaches and around the Gower countryside. The place is 'lived in' rather than a show home so we all felt instantly at home and relaxed. Alison our host was available at the end of the phone or via email and we had very few problems during our week. Booking communications before we went were rather sporadic due to the owners having email trouble but the house, facilities and location were well worth the investment. Highly recommend and we'll be back in a year or two!!
Our extended family had a great Christmas at this wonderful house.
The kitchen is large and modern. We ate our Christmas dinner in the conservatory..... fantastic.
Just stayed her for my sisters hen weekend and what a weekend we had!! We had a fantastic weekend which was made even better by the house. I cannot recommend this house enough, it is beautiful, well kept, looked after and was exactly what we were looking for. The conservatory and the kitchen are to die for! Beautiful views all around, very peaceful! Massive garden for entertaining! The owners are fantastic, so helpful and can't do enough for you! They were always there to help throughout the weekend and the months leading up to our stay. There is ample room for parking, we had extra visitors in the day and there was never a struggle to park! We even had a limo and a party bus on the drive at one time!! This place is fantastic and nothing I say will do it justice until you see it!! We are already looking to book again!!
What a find!
5 golfing couples stayed here for 3 nights at the end of April and we had an absolute blast. There are so many positives about this house but probably the best was the enormous kitchen/dining area where we shared breakfast each morning. Plenty of room for 5-6 cars outside. Large bbq and table and chairs outside for when the weather warms up. 5 bedrooms upstairs (2 en suite, 1 double with bunk beds, 1 twin with an extra bed, and 1 other twin) while the downstairs study (which has a sofa bed) can easily be converted to a bedroom. House nice and warm. The kitchen has all the mod cons while the sitting room has 3 large comfy sofas with Sky TV and all the channels (Alison & Mike kindly arranged for us to watch the Joshua vs Klitschko fight live). There is a nearby mini supermarket at the garage half a mile away which is well stocked. In the evenings we ate out at the Britannia Inn (authentic Welsh county pub), King Arthur pub (voted top 10 in the UK) and the Beach House in Oxwich (which could be Michelin star it is that good); all of these are within 10 minutes drive, and the local taxi firm took us to and from them all. We played golf at Pennard (15 minutes), Ashburnham (50 minutes) and Royal Porthcawl (1 hour) which are all fantastic in their own way.
Will strongly consider coming back with my extended family next summer.
