Just had our second stay here, and every bit as good as the first. Tea and fresh welshcakes on arrival, and a roaring fire in the log burner to sooth away the stress of a long drive. Vicky is the friendliest, most efficient landlady we have met, not to mention being an excellent cook. Highly recommended - we will be...

Lovely country B&B with easy access for walks and towns. Accommodation was lovely with a log burner to keep you warm. The breakfast was excellent and all needs taken care of. Would thoroughly recommend.

We had a super welcome from our host Vickie and our room was warm and very quiet. As I had to be up early for a photo event one morning; that was no problem and breakfast was a good start to a long day.

This is a first-rate establishment in every way. Welcoming, obliging host, everything spotlessly clean and delightful location. We requested an evening meal and, like the breakfast the following morning, was delicious. Would recommend unreservedly.

Beautifully furnished room, oak furniture, interesting pictures, a place with character and class in an interesting historic building. Very quiet setting, lovely landscape. Vicky is charming and helpful, dog Daisy affectionate, children clever and bilingual! On arrival she gave me a big pot of tea and Welsh cakes. Fresh fruit is always available in a bowl in the visitors lounge/dining...

I stayed for 1 night on the 30th September. The School House is in a nice, secluded location. The room was nice, large and airy, with a good en suite shower. Vicky was very welcoming, but there was no sign of the "home made cake, fresh fruit and well stocked hospitality tray in the room" which would have been welcome...

Very friendly family atmosphere. Nothing is too much trouble for Vicky. Room was excellent and comfortable, and there is a baronial sitting room. Better than most hotels! Vicky is a very good cook, using local products. Her bacon & eggs are to die for! And she wiil cook dinner if asked. Her "meeter & greeter", aka Daisy the labrador is...

I stayed at the Old School for four nights with my seven year old granddaughter recently and what a super time we had! Vickie, the owner was absolutely lovely, very welcoming of my young granddaughter, tolerant of her constant chatter and happy to let her help with the chickens. Vickie's two children, James & Charlotte were also super and an...

We have just enjoyed our second visit to Old School. Perhaps not unusual except that we live about 10,000 miles away. Having discovered it on our previous trip (see my review of July 2014), we added it to our schedule again and found it just as good the second time. Idyllic countryside location but near to town and a good...

We were so honoured and pleased to have had you stay again. We get a huge amount of guests making return and repeat visits but never from Australia! And it looks like we didn't disappoint this time either. We naturally hope that you will come back again and again! Very best wishes Vickie and family
