A very spacious clean property set in wonderful gardens. We had a very relaxing peaceful week and will happily return again.

Mr R,

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful cottage we were made to feel welcome by Pixie, Claire and Paul. We were unrushed given a tour of the fabulous gardens that have been clearly the family oasis. All wonderfully groomed to the last blade of grass and weed. The surroundings of the cottage is likened to a ‘chocolate box scene’. Everything you require for an extremely enjoyable stay is here at this location. Coast sandy beaches are nearby seaside shops & restaurants galore. Lovely walks even closer. Volumes of history. We have both really enjoyed our restful stay here & would recommend this holiday cottage to all. Thank you for everything. We will be back.

Past Customer,

Fabulous week with fabulous weather. This is a truly magical place, and we did not want to leave. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. Everything was simply perfect. We will be back!

Past Customer,

We had a wonderful time in exploring the local castles and eating places. We also had a lovely welcome by the family which we both really appreciated. The gardens are a joy and when we were not out and about, we savoured the beauty of the flowers. A beautiful spot. Thank you for making it a special week

Past Customer,

Thank you so much for such a warm welcome and a wonderful week. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and have loved the peace and quiet, the garden and the comfort of the cottage.

Past Customer,

Fantastic cottage with great pet friendly gardens. Could not fault the cottage at all.

Mr B,

This cottage is outstanding in every way. Very comfortable, well equipped, the location is in the countryside and the gardens absolutely exquisite. The owners are friendly and helpful... quite simply, the best cottage I have stayed in (and there have been a few over the years). We will definitely be returning. Wales Cottage Holidays was very good too, helpful emails and texts - nothing missing. Very satisfied indeed with everything. Thank you.

Mrs H,

Cottage very well equipped, in good condition, clean and well maintained. Comfortable furniture and bed Pixie, the owner is very friendly and helpful, with advice about places to visit. The gardens are amazing and a tribute to the 28 years she has spent developing them. We should have spent more time just relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the cottage's location, instead of touring around. Had a thoroughly enjoyable week here and highly recommend it.

Mr C,

Lovely property, well appointed and sparkling clean. Use of beautiful gardens, peaceful seating areas to enjoy. Made to feel very welcome by property owners. Comfortable bed and a nice quiet peaceful environment. Well placed to visit various coastal towns, from Cardigan to New Quay. Would willingly visit again.

Mr D,

The cottage is comfortable and spacious, well equipped. A lovely find, with a fabulous garden to explore. The birdlife loves the garden as much as we did; red kites visit the skies. On clear nights the stars are impressive. So pleased we found this lovely property - it's highly recommended for garden, wildlife and tranquillity lovers.

Mr R,

The owners of the Old Vicarage Cottage gave us a warm welcome and were on hand to answer any questions. The cottage is set in a nice quiet location and with wonderful gardens that you were free to roam and sit with a cup of coffee or glass of wine to take in the views and relax, the cottage itself was well equipped, clean and comfortable with a nice cottage feel complete with a log burner, i would recommend this cottage.

Mr W,

We stayed in The Old Vicarage in September2020. The Old Vicarage is an ideal base from which to explore the south and west coasts of Wales. The cottage is very comfortable with plenty of space and is exceptionally well equipped with everything you might need and maybe a few things you hadn't even thought of! We bought food online from a local farm supplier, which was delivered on the day we arrived, although the local shops at Newcastle Emrys have everything you could need. The main attraction of The Old Vicarage is undoubtedly the beautiful gardens, developed with love over 20+ years by Pixie. Her knowledge of plants is second to none and her capacity for work, despite her years, is an inspiration! The garden Is a haven of peace and tranquillity and if you sit quietly a close encounter with some of the local wildlife is very likely. We enjoyed some fabulous walks near the house or took a day trip to the coast and walked some of the impressive coastline. On other days we just ambled about the local towns and villages. There is plenty to do! After a day out and about there is nothing better than relaxing for an hour or so by the pond with a cup of tea, cake and a good book! We had a wonderfully relaxing week at The Old Vicarage and have no hesitation in recommending a stay there. Caroline and Mike
