The Old Vicarage
An Introduction to The Old Vicarage
The Old Vicarage is set in its own secluded and peaceful wooded grounds on the edge of the lovely moorlands to the West of St. Ives. The surrounding quiet residential area is in marked contrast to the hustle and bustle of the centre of St. Ives with its busy shops, bars and restaurants.
The six bedrooms are all on the upper floor and following refurbishment in 2001 all rooms now have en suite facilities. Some of the rooms are larger and can accommodate families with a double and one or two single beds.
Each room is individually and tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished and has tea and coffee making facilities and a colour television.
The Kitchen has an Aga for the very finest of cooked breakfasts. An Aga cooks without direct heat which means that moisture (and flavour) is retained. All ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible and freshly prepared and cooked in or on the Aga.
The Lounge is tastefully furnished using wallpaper and fabrics designed by Dianne during her time at Anna French Ltd and looks out onto the grounds, facing South and West. You can relax here in comfort and if you wish enjoy the television or select a book.
The Victorian bar lounge, so reminiscent of the era with its red velvet, gilt and mahogany has a cosy and intimate atmosphere. The well stocked bar caters for all tastes and this is the favourite meeting place for most of our guests. Please note guests who wish to smoke may now do so in the grounds only.
