Old Vicarage Holiday Cottages

Beautiful, great location, wonderful view.
The location of this place was really good for exploring Wales. A beautiful period home, with a very functional kitchen. Paul and John were great hosts and again the location was wonderful. Recommend them highly.
We had a lovely time again at The Old Vicarage, this time the weather was perfect. Always a warm welcome from John and Paul; looking forward to our next trip.
And we very much look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes Paul & John
Beautiful, cosy cottage with outstanding views
Honestly could not fault our stay in Vicarage Cottage, it was so wonderful that although we had planned to go out a few times we decided we’d rather stay in - so never actually made it out the front door until we left! The cottage itself is lovely and rustic, yet has a gorgeous modern bathroom - so best of both worlds really! It is in a nice, quiet location but with ease of getting to places - if you do actually manage to make it out! Truly a wonderful place to relax for a few days, highly recommend.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Vicarage Cottage - best wishes Paul & John
Lovely old cottage in a great location
Old Vicarage cottage has been restored to a very high standard but has kept most of its original features from the past. It was like stepping back in time for the few days we spent there & it was warm & cosy too .... even with the snow outside. Had a great time & really enjoyed our stay.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you back in the future. With best wishes Paul & John
A wonderful retreat from the world
My second stay was with my daughter. As soon as she saw it , it was love at first sight. A busy life being a nurse and this was so relaxing and so cosy and comfortable. The cottage is a property that anyone could just move into and just live!!!!!!
Can't wait for our next visiit.
So glad you and your daughter enjoyed your visit and had a well desereved rest. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best wishes P&J
A relaxing home from home in a wonderfully peaceful setting
Vicarage Cottage has clearly been restored with love and care by the owners - it is far above your average holiday let! I recommend it unreservedly.
So glad you enjoyed your stay at Vicarage Cottage. We look forward to seeing you in the future - with our best wishes Paul & John
