Lovely house spoiled by neglect and grime.

  • 2 of 5

A lovely period house set in beautiful countryside perfectly placed for coastal and rural walks. The owner seemed obliging and responded positively to requests for replacement of a broken hair dryer and additional garden chairs.

Unfortunately the house was far from clean, in particular the kitchen was extremely dirty; the cooker, for example, was sticky with a build-up of old grease. We had to put all the crockery and glasses through the dishwasher before we could use any of it, the frying pan needed several hours of soaking in oven cleaner and scrubbing before it was in a fit state to be used. The two lounges smell rather unpleasantly of what would seem to be a mixture of wet dog and dirty and mouldy soft furnishings that hours of open windows every day did nothing to shift. The upstairs rooms were, on the whole, clean and comfortable apart from a stray used cotton bud from a previous occupant that appeared to have escaped detection in the en-suite as did the fact that one bath towel had been used and was dirty (something I didn't discover until after taking a shower, Yuck!)

The owner was kind enough to provide a disposable Bar b q tray for us; which was just as well really as the barrel bar b q was only usable following two days of soaking in oven cleaner and hours of scrubbing with metal scouring pads. The wooden table in the courtyard was disgusting, with what looked like dog food that had become furry with mould, stuck between the joints and I'm pretty sure the liquid leaking from the soil stack (outlet for toilet and washing machine) over the paving flags qualifies as a health hazard.

Last and perhaps least there is no change of bed linen or towels during a two-week stay.

This is the fifth property we have stayed in in Cornwall in the past six years so we are more than used to and quite content with the quirks of old rural places but this was far and away in a class of its own.

The Old Vicarage Germoe

  • 5 of 5

The house is large, spacious and comfortable, with lots of sleeping accommodation and two sitting rooms. A large kitchen diner, which is very well equipped. Ideal location for visiting the beach and local eateries.

Would certainly recommend.

Lovely comfortable house with lots of character in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The old vicarage is a lovely property, well equipped with a great kitchen where we could all cook and eat together. Germoe is a beautiful gem of a village - lovely and quiet with great walks and places to bike and run nearby. It's within easy reach of lots of great beaches - only 30 minutes to Hayle and Godrevy and 5 minutes to Praa and Rinsey. There's lots to do nearby if the weather isn't great but to be honest it was lovely to relax in the house when it rained. We would definitely recommend The Old Vicarage. Thank you Bill and Alice
