What a charming, clean and inviting place to stay. We arrived just after 4pm and were met by Sandy the landlady who showed us to our room and then arrived shortly after with chocolate cake and fresh milk for the tea. The rooms are spacious and well furnished and the bathroom was fabulous with freestanding bath and large shower cubicle. The gardens are beautiful and the B and B is a 5 minute stroll into the town centre. Full English breakfast in the morning was delicious and also a choice of fresh fruit and cereals. All in all a perfect place to stay. I would definitely go back.
Lovely 2 night stay. Friendly welcome from the owners. Spacious room with superb bathroom.Lovely breakfast. The cakes each day are a lovely touch…special thanks for the gluten free chocolate brownies. Owners will recommend good walks and restaurants
Stayed at the Old Vicarage for 2 nights as a group of 6 walking the Coastal Trail. Friendly reception including amazing home-made cake, all the rooms were fresh and clean. Tasty breakfast too, could enjoy the garden before setting off each day. Just a perfect place for a stay in Devon, totally recommended.
I stayed in the Old Vicarage for three nights after reading such positive reviews on TripAdvisor.
Ideally situated on a quiet road yet within close proximity of town centre shops and restaurants and walking distance of train station. Very well appointed room with good quality bedding and toiletries. Sandi and Bryan were excellent hosts and Sandi’s delicious baked goods were an extra daily treat. Good choice at breakfast time served in a lovely room overlooking the garden. Overall the Old Vicarage is wonderful place to stay which I would definately recommend.
