This comfortable, stylish house sleeps 12 in 4 double and 2 twin bedrooms with ample room for relaxing and entertaining. Built in 1897 and used as the parish vicarage until 2010, the house and garden have undergone a major programme of renovation to bring it up to the standards required for year round comfortable living. We have created a very large kitchen and dining room, with an Everhot electric range, from three smaller rooms. this room, like the three other downstairs living rooms, has a wood burning stove. There are five new bathrooms supplied by two large hot water tanks. The tanks have never yet run cold, even when we had a very full house for our son's wedding.
We added a conservatory on the east side of the house in order to better enjoy the views of Pill Creek. We think you would be hard pressed to tell this conservatory was not original to the Victorian house.
The main rooms of the Old Vicarage all face south and the windows are large. When the sun shines - and since we moved into the house it feels as if the shone has shone almost every day - sunglasses worn inside the house don't seem inappropriate.
We often use this house for entertaining so it is very generously equipped with china, cutlery, glasses and corkscrews. The Everhot range cooker will be left ready for action and is not difficult to use but comes supplied with a manual in case of need. There is also a microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. A downstairs shower room is convenient for hosing down after a day on the water.
Our days in Feock are usually spent outdoors but for indoor days we have a television with BT Vision and are lucky enough to enjoy superfast broadband at the house. There is a selection of boardgames available as well as a table tennis table. The large areas of flat lawn are ideal for badminton and boules. Nets and racquets are left in the porch.
Our dog enjoys her time in Feock but we would caution against bringing anything other than very well behaved dogs to the house. The newly planted hedges on the boundary are not dog-proof, nor is the ha-ha which separates the garden from our farmer neighbour's livestock.
We provide bed linen and towels for the house but ask you to bring your own beach towels please.
Our housekeeper will make everything ready for you and is available in case of a real emergency.
