Perfect for celebratory occasions in all seasons

An oasis of manor house country living accommodating up to ten guests and set within a beautiful landscaped garden.  Formerly a vicarage, make this grand period home your getaway go-to and immerse yourself in Cornwall with the drama and action of the north Coast just ten minutes away or the quiet coves and fishing life to the south, plan your itinerary for a whirlwind taste of the Westcountry.

The Property

A sense of grandeur and period charm make this alternative holiday home the perfect choice befitting any occasion from action packed outdoor weekends to family time out.  The grand hallway with original period decor and sweeping staircase offers a warm welcome.  The ground floor is thoughtfully spaced out to include a large manor house style kitchen with central table, follow through to the adjacent catering kitchen, a great hub to stow the essentials.  A spacious drawing room with open fire and original wood flooring is a real family space decked in warm opulent reds.  Lead through to the glass Orangery and spill out onto the patio in on warmer days.  Climb the staircase to a tempting collection of bedrooms, each beautifully presented to reflect the style, warmth and period of the original Vicarage.  The master double bedroom boasts a luxurious four-poster bed with warm golds, brown and cream decor.  Three further double bedded rooms each enjoy garden views, bespoke furniture and luxury linens.  The fresh blue and white twin room with traditional iron bedsteads is an adorable room for children.

The Old Vicarage is so special, like something out of a movie.  The whole house and gardens are stunning.  Thank you for an incredible holiday.

The formal garden is perfectly secluded and offers an outdoor playground for both children and dogs to explore.  Lead from the patio and down the lush green level lawn, a large feature pond with almost floating pagoda is truly a romantic spot.  Whilst the pond is not enclosed, the lawn area can be closed off to children via the gates from the patio.  An essential addition for any holiday home, the large hot tub is perfect for a post coastal walk soak or long overdue catch up with friends.  The Old Vicarage is our recommended choice for families looking for a 'home from home' and comfortable base from which to enjoy a well earned holiday in Cornwall.  With spacious grounds and enviable access to Cornwall's most beautiful countryside and towns, the house offers a versatile choice for smaller wedding celebrations or summer garden parties.  Our experienced concierge service will ensure you make the most of your stay from secret spot surfing to private chefs, day sailing to walking tours.

Superb website, (and we looked at a lot!), and very easy to use. A very friendly and helpful team in the office and a fabulous property. A great holiday all round.

Melissa Orrom Swan

Very homely and all facilities available to make life easier. Lots of space, there were 6 adults, 4 small children and a dog, and we didn't feel on top of one another, the garden was fabulous. Lots of places to visit within easy distance and the hot tub was a bonus. Would love to go back.
