  • “Delightful and well appointed 'home from home'”
    This lovely brick built and recently refurbished Old Vicarage that has retained some period features includes loads of home comforts (see the blurb) and all perfectly served our extended family celebration.

    This lovely brick built and recently refurbished Old Vicarage that has retained some period features includes loads of home comforts (see the blurb) and all perfectly served our extended family celebration. Before we arrived we received an email with access to very detailed information about how the house works and its contents. Then on arrival, we were personally welcomed and introduced to the house and gardens by a member of the family who own the property; a welcome pack including homemade preserves was waiting in the ample sized kitchen as were logs should we need a real fire in either the dining room or lounge. The house is fresh, clean and well equipped, in fact it felt as if the family had just stepped out to let us stay. Oh the joy of waking from a comfortable holiday let bed to see the sun rising over the hill and then taking coffee in the garden with a red kite flying above with the sound of relatively little else! Peace and quiet! Locally, lovely country walks, whilst some of the footpaths are not used a regularly as others, we were able to take one of the maps provided in the house and work our way around for a morning's exercise with two small children. Going a bit further afield there's Hereford, Hay on Wye, The Weir Garden (National Trust), The Gruffalo Trail in Queenswood and The Red Kite feeding centre. Plenty in the area for all ages to do and see. Would highly recommend the Old Vicarage for a relaxing break either with family or with a group of friends (albeit reluctantly as would like to keep it a secret so it would always be available should we need to book again!)

About the location

PETERCHURCH

Hay-on-Wye 10 miles; Hereford 12 miles.

The village of Peterchurch, with its handful of pubs and restaurants, is situated on the River Dore in the beautiful Golden Valley, flanked by the Black Mountains to the west and gentle hills to the east. Just 10 miles away is the wonderful market town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its 30-plus book shops, excellent pubs, restaurants and antique shops, making it one of the most visited tourist attractions in Wales. Surrounded by pastureland and woodland, covered in primroses, violets, celandine and bluebells during spring, the village is also close to the Offa's Dyke and Wye Valley walks. The epitome of picturesque England, the ancient city of Hereford lies 12 miles away and dates back to the 7th Century, boasting a magnificent cathedral, the famous 'chained library', and a medieval bridge over the winding River Wye. A great location with plenty to see and do for all the family.
