Delightful and well appointed 'home from home'
This lovely brick built and recently refurbished Old Vicarage that has retained some period features includes loads of home comforts (see the blurb) and all perfectly served our extended family celebration. Before we arrived we received an email with access to very detailed information about how the house works and its contents. Then on arrival, we were personally welcomed and introduced to the house and gardens by a member of the family who own the property; a welcome pack including homemade preserves was waiting in the ample sized kitchen as were logs should we need a real fire in either the dining room or lounge. The house is fresh, clean and well equipped, in fact it felt as if the family had just stepped out to let us stay. Oh the joy of waking from a comfortable holiday let bed to see the sun rising over the hill and then taking coffee in the garden with a red kite flying above with the sound of relatively little else! Peace and quiet! Locally, lovely country walks, whilst some of the footpaths are not used a regularly as others, we were able to take one of the maps provided in the house and work our way around for a morning's exercise with two small children. Going a bit further afield there's Hereford, Hay on Wye, The Weir Garden (National Trust), The Gruffalo Trail in Queenswood and The Red Kite feeding centre. Plenty in the area for all ages to do and see. Would highly recommend the Old Vicarage for a relaxing break either with family or with a group of friends (albeit reluctantly as would like to keep it a secret so it would always be available should we need to book again!)

Fantastic short break for a large group
What an impressive place! We loved the huge, fantastically equipped kitchen (3 fridges, a range cooker and enough cutlery, plates, glasses etc for double the number of people staying), which also included a large dining table with french windows that led out onto the lovely garden. The rooms are beautifully presented, the front room was large enough for us all to sit and enjoy the real log fire. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated, luxurious and spacious. We had a great meal at The Bridge at Michaelchurch Escley, our only problem was getting there - local taxis are in short supply. We visited the cider museum and Belmont Abbey - a Benedictine Monastery, both interesting in their own ways. I really can't fault this property, it was everything I had hoped for and more and Elwyn was always at the end of the phone to answer any queries. I would thoroughly recommend this property.

Wonderful stay!
We have all enjoyed our stay here at The Old Vicarage. Grandpa declares that it has given him "a new lease of life"! Beautiful gardens. The siting-dining area gave plenty of scope for communal cooking and a well stocked kitchen, All in all a wonderful location. Thank you for having such a lovely place for lucky people to enjoy! We have really enjoyed our stay. The property is really suited to a large group like ours and still had plenty of space to spread out in. The garden is so peaceful and we enjoyed the privacy and bird life. The flag was a great touch too! Thanks, The Scots!

Surpassed expectations - couldn't ask for more
Rooms styled like a boutique hotel. Kitchen diner beautifully open and airy allowing easy access to the patio which was perfect for BBQs. The garden was massive and great for kids to play in with the football goal and table football getting a lot of use. Made full use of all the various kitchen utensils and having 3 full fridges was a welcome bonus! In a lovely part of the countryside and would love to come back again.
