This is a pristinely stunning small hotel run by a husband and wife team who love their place and love to provide a great resource.

We've just returned from spending 3 nights at the Old School and were made to feel most welcome. Yvonne and Steve have done everything possible to make their guests comfortable. A lovely room, which was clean and comfortable and a delicious breakfast which could last you all day! A good location for plenty of visits.
