We had the pleasure of using your hotel for my fathers funeral (celebration of his life). Although a sad day for all, much joy and pleasure was spent for an afternoon tea at the vicarage with close family and friends. The detail in every aspect was second to none and the staff and Suzanne couldn't do enough for us. What a wonderful way to celebrate his life. Thank you so much.


The Old Vicarage is not simply a hotel it is an experience, and one that we can not recommend highly enough! We had our wedding & reception here yesterday and had the most wonderful day. This place is simply stunning with every minute detail thought out. Suzanne and her team are amazing and so attentive, without being intrusive and nothing was too big an ask. We were made to feel instantly welcome and we can not thank them enough for ensuring our day was perfect!
