With only six rooms, the hotel has paid much care and attention to their elegant décor and well-equipped bathrooms. Most of the rooms on the ground or attic floors look out over the church, while upgrading could bag you sweeping views out over the river.
The former homes of rectors and the parsonage seem to hold a special place in the heart of many English folk. For some, it's their religious importance and historical significance. For others, the real interest lies in the quintessential Englishness of their aesthetics, architecture and gardens.
The 6-room Old Vicarage in the small hamlet of St Clement is no exception. This charming boutique B&B is housed in a Vicarage dating back to the 1500s and is set in beautiful gardens with views out over the Tresillian River. The owners, Marilyn and Jonathan, are friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming, finding the perfect balance of attentiveness without becoming intrusive.
Exploring is a must while you’re here: the nearby Cathedral city of Truro is definitely worth a visit, as is the plant-filled Eden Project which is a 40-minute drive away. If you’d rather stay near the hotel, you’re well-set for breathtaking views; the charming ancient hamlet of St Clement is surrounded by countryside so stunning that it has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
A great breakfast is served in the mornings, with a wide range of cold and hot dishes available, not to mention some lovely views of the garden and river from the breakfast room (included in most room rates, see detail below). While there is no restaurant or bar here, there is a guest fridge so you can bring your own drinks, and there are some excellent options in Truro.
