The Old Vicarage

Total Comfort in beautiful surroundings…

In the heart of the historic market town of Castle Cary resides this haven tranquility and peacefulness even though it is literally minutes from the array of local shops. A first-class Wolsey Lodge welcome awaits you at this beautiful property by hosts, followed shortly by a selection of homemade treats, which can be taken in the elegantly furnished large dining or drawing rooms.

There is a stunning two storey conservatory, where bed and breakfast guests are also welcome to relax come the afternoon or after a day of tourists pleasures.  There are the most pleasurable views over the two acres of garden with its sweeping lawns, graceful trees and old stone walls and courtyard. Or instead take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by a terrace with its vine covered pergola - A great end or start to any day.

Each guest room has been carefully decorated and furnished with gorgeous fabrics, paintings, and interesting artifacts. Beds are king size and bathrooms have both a tub and separate shower. Taking breakfast from the extensive menu - choose from full English, fish or the vegetarian option - will leave you perfectly set for the day.

Excellent. Warm welcome by Maggie & Chris. Very interesting discussions. Would come back anytime.
