Once inside, this spacious holiday home from home oozes Regency charm from the high ceilings to the large sash windows flooding the rooms with light and warmth. The kitchen adds a modern twist to the traditional style with smart black and white fittings and cherry red accessories, self cater in style using Cornwall's finest artisan ingredients. Lead through to the open plan living and dining space and gather with family and friends. The living room offers 2 relaxing sofas and has been dressed to perfection with soft pastel shades creating a unique country ambiance, gaze out across the grounds from your elevated position. Little Vicarage offers two boutique style bedrooms each considerately styled with fresh white linens and warm plum soft furnishings.

From your Holiday Door

Step from your holiday door into the private secluded walled courtyard. This wonderful space brims with exotic flora and fauna in all seasons from vibrant evergreens to blooming roses, lush tree ferns to olive and fig trees creating a stunning backdrop to your al fresco dining. A large wooden dining table with chairs welcomes lazy breakfasts and lunch on the go or dress the table for summer celebrations. Guests are invited to explore the extensive gardens of The Old Vicarage complete with established arboretum and lawns which are beautifully maintained. The outdoor swimming pool really is rather special offering a Tuscan style setting with a Cornish twist, soak up the sun from the loungers as children play or enjoy a morning dip before heading out and about. A private gate leads down to a path adjoining the Church with its' unusual detached Bell Tower.  The hamlet of Gwennap and surrounding countryside offers a true taste of Cornwall with winding country lanes and mining heritage, a number of country pubs extend a warm welcome to visitors including The Fox and Hounds at Comford just moments from Little Vicarage. With the central location, pack up the car and head to the rolling surf and high cliffs of North Cornwall or head towards Falmouth and the more sheltered sailing waters and coves of the South coast. 

Little Vicarage comes highly recommended by the Cornish Gems team for guests looking to escape the bustle of the coastal towns yet enjoy the luxury of a rural Cornish setting with first class holiday living.

What an idyllic setting, hidden away behind the trees where peace and quiet reign. The perfect antidote for a year of hard work.


Little Vicarage and Cornish Gems were a wonderful find. This is a perfect holiday home set in peaceful, tranquil and beautifully kept surroundings. It exceeded our expectations and we will return in the future.


This is our third stay at Little Vicarage and as always we have loved it.


The perfect base to explore from and a haven of tranquility to return to each evening. This is our second stay and we hope to return many times in the future.


Little Vicarage is beautiful, it has been a great place to explore Cornwall from and we have loved the pool. We hope to come again soon.


We have stayed at The Little Vicarage twice now as we enjoyed it so much the first time. The position is excellent with most places of interest with a 30 minute drive but the village itself is very quiet and peaceful away from the hustle and bustle of some Cornish places. We always arrive rather stressed and tired and immediately relax and chill and leave in a totally different mood. The pool is wonderfully warm, even in October, and spotlessly clean. We particularly liked swimming at night with the coloured lights, which was a highlight of the stay for our daughter, along with playing Dog Bingo in the apartment.Everything is very well maintained, the beds are extremely comfortable and garden is always beautifully neat and tidy. We will be back again soon. The Hanson Family

Accomodation was to the highest of standards, everything we needed was in the apartment. The owners Paul & Lewis are lovely and were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The Little Vicarge is situated in an ideal location, which enabled us to explore Cornwall with ease, from Falmouth to St.Ives.

Paul and Cheryl Lench

Beautiful apartment.


A wonderful place, so relaxing. The owners had thought of everything, and everything was in perfect condition. It was very well located for exploring Cornwall, and the swimming pool was absolutely blissful. The nicest self catering place I’ve ever stayed in, will certainly recommend to others.

Carolan Redfearn

We've stayed in some nice houses over the years, but this one was one of the best. Lovely accommodation, great pool. The location is great for getting to both north and south coasts within 20 - 30 minutes and across to the Roseland.

Rob Chedzoy

Beautiful property!

Sue Sturgeon

A beautiful home with stunning gardens and pool. We will certainly return in the future.

Alice Cadogan

Stayed at Little Vicarage over New Year. The apartment is great - well equipped, spotlessly clean and warm and comfortable. The owners, could not have been more welcoming. Had a truly relaxing week. The area is nice, lots of good walks and the dog had a great time too. Would definitely recommend Little Vicarage and planning to book another stay soon.


Gave us just the break we needed.


The little vicarage was a perfect holiday escape. The property and grounds are stunning. The pool was fantastic. The location makes it easy to access much of Cornwall whilst still feeling like you are in a very tranquil area.

Fiona Regan

Quality and high spec'd properties. A real treat when on holiday.

John Devlin

We were wowed the moment we arrived, the house and grounds are spectacular and the apartment had been finished to a very high standard with everything you could possibly need. The highlight for us was the pool, always very clean and warm with lighting that changes colour at night! The house is in the perfect location as it is quiet and away from the crowds but yet many places are accessible within under half an hours drive. We really were sad to leave but look forward to going back.
