“Definitely worth 5Star plus rating”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We went down to Cornwall for a wedding anniversary break, the property was excellent!Couldn't fault it in any way.
Easy parking right outside the door. Garden is a sun trap, with a BBQ area.
Very warm inside, thanks to the underfloor heating.
T.V in each bedroom and in the lounge area.
En-suite bathroom to both bedrooms
would definitely recommend this property as a base for visiting South Cornwall

“Fantastic hosts, location and cottage”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Great communication with owners (Debbie & Paul) prior to our stay. They recommended things to do, nearby restaurants and provided a number for a local taxi company so that I could prepare all of our arrangements before our arrival.

Directions send beforehand we very useful and certainly helped with guiding us to The Old Vicarage. The cottage is equipped with everything you’ll need from breakfast hamper, coffee, tea, dish washer tablets, washing up liquid – so no need to take these items with you.

Really comfortable and relaxing lounge with beautiful log burner and logs etc all ready for you to use…. Really nice touch.

Kitchen fully equipped with microwave, dish washer, washing machine and all the cooking utensils you may need.

Two lovely double bedrooms and a double sofa bed in the lounge. We stayed as a party of 6 for three nights and our guests were more than comfortable sleeping in the lounge. Both upstairs bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms therefore the guests sleeping downstairs used one of the bathrooms upstairs. Beautiful towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryer all provided for you.

The cottage is located approximately 10-15 minutes’ drive from the coast. I would highly recommend the coastal train trip into St Ives from Lelant Saltings – very picturesque and saves you the hassle of trying to park in St Ives.

We experienced a few days of wet weather during our stay – but all the more reason to snuggle up in the warm the cosy cottage as games and heaps of dvd’s supplied.

The Old Vicarage is really a beautiful retreat, to get away from it all and recharge the batteries.
Debbie & Paul were very welcoming, provide all that you will need for your stay and on hand to provide suggestions for the local area. Will definately return.

“Home from home”
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.

“All we had hoped for..”
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!”
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.
