Set in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside within a garden setting at The Old School House in Ellenhall, near the attractive small town of Eccleshall. The Dorm studio is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day out exploring the Staffordshire and Shropshire countryside and nearby attractions. Designed with your total comfort in mind, whilst reflecting some old school charm. The Dorm studio is a ground floor room – perfect for those who enjoy open plan living.

There is underfloor heating throughout The Dorm and a heated radiator in the bathroom...The Dorm Bed and Breakfast is a friendly and relaxed Staffordshire bed and breakfast with a touch of old school charm. Set in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside within a garden setting at The Old School House in Ellenhall, near the attractive small town of Eccleshall. The Dorm studio is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day out exploring the Staffordshire and Shropshire countryside and nearby attractions. Designed with your total comfort in mind, whilst reflecting some old school charm. The Dorm studio is a ground floor room – perfect for those who enjoy open plan living. The Dorm is just across from the main building, The Old School House. It has its own parking and private patio area. There is underfloor heating throughout The Dorm and a heated radiator in the bathroom to warm your towels making it lovely and cosy in the winter. The large windows make it airy and bright, and the velux windows help keep the room cool in the summer. The comfy double bed is iron framed with a luxurious mattress. The bathroom is en-suite with a large power shower. There is a beautiful armchair to relax in, a vanity area and dining area seating provided. We have a small kitchenette area with sink and fridge where we provide fresh milk and where you can chill you own wine. Help yourself to the use of the toaster for midnight snacking! The colour scheme is very calming with use of neutrals to help you to relax and unwind. There is a range of lighting for every mood including directed desk lamps for reading by the bedside. We offer a variety of packages to suit your needs – whether it is for business or pleasure. We are flexible regarding your breakfast preferences and if you would rather have breakfast in bed at your leisure just say so! With warmest regards, Imogen, Steve and Sebastian Adams The Dorm Bed and Breakfast The Old School House, Ellenhall More
