This was our third visit and I hope it won’t be our last. What a beautiful house, actually home is probably a better description - with the equally well equipped Pool House very close by - every room superbly decorated and there is plenty to do both outside and inside with the games room if the weather is bad. Loved it!

“Wonderful house for a fab wedding!”

The house and its gardens were the perfect choice for our daughter's wedding. Plenty of space for a marquee and the house, along with the adjoining poolhouse, gave us plenty of bedrooms for friends and guests involved in the day itself. The main bathroom was great fun to get ready in - big enough for most of the bridesmaids and me- all at the same time!
The walled garden was lovely for the night before and drinks pre-marquee and the pool and tennis court were popular with the more active!
The day after was lovely too, with guests chilling in the games room, or chatting on the large outside tables near the kitchen.
The hosts, Richard and Katie, were on hand with their super team who knew the house very well and were just a phone call away. All in all, a perfect and fun stay and I cannot recommend Vicarage House highly enough.

“A stay at Vicarage House takes some beating!!”

It was our second stay at Vicarage House and it was as wonderful (if not more so) as the first: 12 of the family (varying ages) celebrating a birthday and what better way to do so in such lovely surroundings : it really does have everything you need (inside and out). We were blessed with good weather so the pool / tennis court / bikes / BBQs were used throughout our week's stay. It’s a perfect base for keen golfers and the younger members had a fantastic day at Go Ape .

Both the House and the Pool House are impeccably clean (the house manager and her team are so helpful and a phone call away if you need anything). There are bathrooms aplenty and the kitchen has every gadget you can think of.

Katie's recommendations (catering / nearby accommodation etc.) were so helpful when it came to arranging the birthday celebrations. The information you receive in advance with regard to local amenities / things to see and do locally is also very complete

Once you’ve stayed here it’s very difficult to stay elsewhere on a similar break – believe me – we’ve tried it!

Beautiful location. Safe grounds and the house was very comfortable and well equipped. Within walking distance of local pub. However, recommend the Red Lion in Caston. Go Ape was perfect for a family day out.

“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed November 21, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

We rented this beautifully appointed, stunning house for a joint family celebration at the end of Sept 2016. The house caters perfectly for socialising, from a very large kitchen that has everything you could need (and much more), comfy lounges with open-fires, a well-equipped games room (this was one of the highlights for our family!), activities such as tennis, cycles, BBQs and a heated pool (another highlight!). The location is perfect - easy to reach, well located for coastal trips, long walks in the countryside...

Katie is incredibly helpful and thoughtful, with lots of information on how to make the most of your stay. The team prepared the house for our stay and couldn't have been more helpful.

I would thoroughly recommend Vicarage House Everything you see on the website and photographs is exactly what you get, but they don't cover the quality and attention to detail that makes this beautiful house a perfect place to stay. We loved our stay and we will definitely be returning.
