A wonderful birthday weekend - a repeat visit for the rest of my family, but my first time. I found the gardens wonderful, the atmosphere and furniture most eclectic, but comfortable and homely and the welcome and service super. The meal cooked for us on the Sunday night was outstanding and beautifully thought through and cooked. The berry and chocolate...

We were two couples from Denmark touring Southern and mid Wales for 10 days and had decided to end the trip with something special. And indeed it was special. The house, the garden, the individual rooms were all charming , and so were our hosts Paul and John. Fortunately we had preordered the three course dinner, which was nothing less...

Your hosts, John and Paul, have lovingly and painstakingly created a uniquely sumptuous home, which we're all lucky enough to be able to experience for ourselves. Make sure you arrive in time for afternoon tea...

The Old Vicarage is a beautiful retreat. The house is a labour of love in decoration and in the hospitality shown to guests. The pictures on the website offer only a glimpse of the really special decor and fantastic grounds. This really is a unique property and the warmth of welcome matches the surroundings. Cuisine is a priority here. Paul's...

It is some time since we last visited The Old Vicarage but it is as wonderful as before. In previous visits we have been there in winter, so this was a joy to be able to sit in the beautiful gardens to have tea and home made scones on arrival. This was a surprise visit for me which my husband...

We have stayed at the Old Vicarage in Norton at least four times and make it a required destination every time we are in the UK. John and Paul are consummate hosts. The house is gorgeous, the garden is amazing and the food is scrumptious. Everything is perfect.

This delightful Victorian residence has been lovingly restored to perfection, creating a luxurious yet homely retreat to escape the busyness of everyday life. As such, it provides a perfect getaway option and a wonderful alternative to the brigade of 'boutique' B&Bs.
