“Home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A really beautiful and cosy cottage to stay in. We have stayed as a family of 4 and just as a couple this year already. Our holidays are often taken in cottages in this country and I must say this is easily the best. It's very clean, warm and inviting, Debbie and Paul are really helpful with great communication before the holiday. The breakfast hamper left ready for you is such an excellent touch as are the supplies ready there if needed. I have no negatives at all and can't wait to return again in the future. The children liked it so much they didn't want to leave each morning, they enjoyed the games and DVDs as much as day trips out to the very lovely places to visit in that beautiful part of Cornwall. Thanks again Debbie and Paul. Hopefully we will see you again at some point.

We were so warm and comfortable. The whole experience was excellent. All the extra touches were so generous and thoughtful. Beautifully furnished and such a well equipped kitchen. Beds were good and comfortable nice big rooms. Showers excellent with lovely big towels.
A great location for seeing north and south coast of Cornwall

“All we had hoped for..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and I invited a good friend from Dublin on her first visit to Cornwall. The accommodation suited us perfectly and was immaculately clean. Each bedroom having its own en-suite was a great benefit. We can only endorse all the previous reviews which had persuaded us to choose this accommodation in the first place. A return visit to experience more will be planned ASAP. Thank you Paul and Debbie.

“You couldn't want for more, a great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were two couples staying at The Old Vicarage and it was perfect for us. The accommodation has been designed to a very high standard and excellent finish. Whilst there we enjoyed our breakfast on the sunny terrace and in the evening used the barbecue and the open pit fire with logs supplied by Paul. Debbie has considered all those extras that make the whole self catering experience so much better, a welcome pack, freshly ground coffee and hot chocolate, those kitchen essentials that make it a home from home, with superb toiletries in the ensuites. If the weather lets you down don't worry there are more DVDs than you'll know what to do with, that you can view on an entertainment system that is impressive, also great games too. The property is located in a beautiful area and I would really recommend the walk upto Godolphin Hill where you can see both the north and south Cornish coasts. This is self catering at its best.
