I stayed here whilst walking the Offa's Dyke Trail, deliberately choosing to stay between the larger town of Kington and Knighton, in order to stay somewhere quieter and deeper in the countryside.
The Old Vicarage was just what I was seeking, a handsome building with character, set in fields and a garden, with a very peaceful atmosphere. Pat was very welcoming, the food was very good, and I had a great stay.

We spent one night here over Easter and are very glad that we chose this B&B. It is in a peaceful location with beautiful views across the valley, surrounded by fields full of lambs gambolling around (and 2 alpacas) and a lovely garden. We received a friendly welcome from Pat and Michael who were helpful with recommendations of where to go and what to do.

We had a large room on the first floor with ensuite shower room. Very clean and comfortable. There is a sitting room downstairs for guests. Breakfast was delicious - especially the home made jam (rhubarb and ginger was my favourite).

We hope to return again one day to explore more of this lovely part of Wales.

Thank you for visiting us at the Old Vicarage and for this review. Spring is certainly a good time to visit with the lambs never ceasing to entertain. We look forward to welcoming you again one day.

An ad hoc and late notice business trip brought me out to this previously unknown part of border country. Word of mouth led me to the Old Vicarage, and I called at short notice. Despite a late arrival, Pat provided a hugely convivial welcome to this absolute gem. The house is beautifully appointed, spotless, extremely spacious, tranquil (quiet enough to hear the lambs bleating in the surrounding fields) and ‘soft’ with detailed finishing touches. The huge bay-windowed parlour boasts an extensive and eclectic selection of music which guests can choose (or not) to play whilst recuperating in front of the wood burner. Tremendous value.

We stayed for 3 nights during a trip to the Hay Festival. It was excellent all round - location, cleanliness, spaciousness, facilities, service, quality and size of rooms, value for £, warmth, delicious food with great choice and generous portions, beautiful gardens, etc.

Pat and Mike were very welcoming and helpful. Eg, I had some back and leg pain from travelling and found the bed too hard (my partner found it very comfortable!) so slept on a folded eiderdown on top of the mattress (princess and the pea..). Pat noticed the folded eiderdown beneath the sheet and, when we returned from our day-out, offered us a mattress topper and made up the bed for us. Comfortable!

We'd definitely stay again.

Found The Old Vicarage, Evancoyd, nr Presteigne (not to be confused with a similarly named property nearby) on the Alastair Sawday website and booked for a single night as we were on our way home.

A beautiful house in lovely grounds, maintained to an exceptional standard. The bedroom was very comfortable and the food (dinner and breakfast) was very good. We would certainly visit again. There is also a self-catering cottage which looks to be a good base from which to explore the neglected but beautiful countryside of Radnorshire.
