Spent 2 nights here. Huge comfortable rooms. Great breakfast and you have to have the homemade jam. Mike and Liz are wonderful hosts. We would definitely recommend the Old School House to anyone visiting the area!

Quality accommodation in a peaceful rural setting. Extremely spacious, comfortable and well appointed guest rooms with the extra bonus of a quiet, beautifully furnished guests' lounge with panoramic view over the rolling countryside. Very warm welcome by Liz when we arrived later than expected and delicious breakfasts cooked by Mike. Good location for the dark sky observatory. Top marks!

Couldn't have wished for better hosts. Lovely room, very comfortable bed and terrific views. The dining room was exceptional and the food to perfection. I would recommend The Old School to anyone who is traveling through Cumnock, or if you want a quiet break in rural Scotland
