“Excellent Venue to Celebrate”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

First class venue, location, facilities and delightful owners. We went with friends and children to celebrate my wife’s 40th Birthday over a long weekend. We took advantage of the catering provided by Jake Wetherill (@Florentina) to provide a fantastic lunch on the Sunday whilst the house keeper Jo entertained the Children in the games room. We will be back!!

“A great family holiday”

We have just spent a week at the Vicarage & Pool House. There were 15 of us ranging from age 1 to 75 and there was ample space for all of us as well as plenty of activities on site to keep us busy from swimming to croquet, table tennis and bikes to explore the area. The facilities inside the houses were excellent and we loved the range of DVDs on offer to finish off a busy day. The house-keeper was brilliant and made sure that we had everything we needed - nothing was too much trouble. Thank you from all of us and we hope to return soon.

“The house is beautiful, the grounds are stunning and the facilities are amazing.”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I booked this property for my husband's 40th birthday celebrations and it was absolutely perfect. There were 17 of us in total (12 adults, 5 children) and we all had a fantastic time. The main house is beautiful and has been furnished to a high standard, as has the pool house which is fabulous. There is masses of space both inside and out and so much to do whatever the weather - tons of DVDs, books, games and toys as well as bikes, a tennis court, football pitch and swimming pool.
We had great fun in the games room playing table tennis, went for bike rides, relaxed by the pool, not to mention lots of running round and hide and seek in the gardens with the children! A great time was had by all and we'd definitely go back!

“Amazing week in an amazing house”

We have just returned from a week away at vicarage house with a large party of 5 families. The main house and coach house were perfect for our group, plenty of room for all. The pool, football pitch and tennis court were all well used by young and old and we managed to fit in three birthday celebrations, a fabulous Easter egg hunt in the beautiful grounds and a mini Olympics making use of all the great facilities.
Katie and Richard have opened their wonderful home to others and have provided so much for their guests to enjoy and share.
Communication with Katie before our stay was excellent and she was very accommodating of our needs.
Location was perfect for local days out like bewilderwood,laser combat and high lodge.
The beds were so comfortable and the price certainly worth paying.
An amazing week in an amazing house.

“The Vicarage was absolutely perfect for our Birthday Celebration.”

Our party ranged from 11 to 80 years; the weekend simply few by. The grandchildren and energetic adults were busy playing tennis or off on cycle rides. There was plenty to do indoors either watching DVDs or playing games. We all had space for relaxing and enjoying each others company. The house is so well appointed we quickly felt "At Home" and comfort was the essence.
Everyone was happy and sad to be leaving. It was a truly memorable weekend spent in such a fantastic house. The joys of gracious living! To quote " A lovely way to spend my 80th "
The information provided by the owners was extremely useful.
