Had a lovely 3 night stay at the old school. Very warm welcome from Steve and Yvonne with a pot of tea and cake. Very comfortable with great breakfast. Excellent place for touring countryside and coast. Highly recommended.

They have a good knowledge regarding places to visit, both on and off the beaten track.Their home is lovely with spacious bedrooms.Breakfast is to die for. The village is pretty and the local pub provide excellent meals.We will be back.

This is a fantastic B&B, great location just off the A1 but far enough away as to not hear it. Steve & Yvonne really made us feel welcome and had a great local knowledge on where to go and visit. The breakfast was too good as I had to clear my plate every morning.

A beautiful stay at this lovely B&B. Only 3 rooms but beautifully appointed and our hosts, Yvonne and Steve do a great job balancing a friendly approach to all their guests and allowing privacy too. A great base to explore the local area.Lovely garden and friendly feather footed hens into the bargain!

Absolutley wonderful place. Steve & Yvonne really made us feel welcome. Perfect balance, friendly hosts but allowed us our privacy too. Right from the coffee & cake when we arrived through to the delicious breakfasts and offer to drive us to our wedding venue, amazing service! Thank u Steve & Yvonne from the young 'uns! X

The School House just gets everything right. Yvonne and Steve are so welcoming and are both fantastic hosts - this is the benchmark for what a really great B&B should be like. It's the little touches - the fridge with bottled water, the range of teas and coffees, the balcony overlooking the garden, the fabulous, fabulous breakfasts....and the parrot!! We've... More

We had 3 lovely nights at this excellent B&B. Yvonne and Steve are wonderful hosts. Happy to help and knowledgeable about the local area. Felt we were saying goodbye to friends when we left. Wouldn't hesitate to return when next visiting the area.

We stayed 3 nights at what would turn out to be a most enjoyable experience. We can only endorse previous reviews in that this is the best B&B we've ever stayed at. From the first moment we were made at home by hosts Steve and Yvonne, who would do anything to ensure you enjoyed your stay. The place is in... More

This is how a B & B should be run. We stayed for 4 nights and could not find fault with this lovely place. Perfect hosts, spotlessly clean room, excellent breakfasts and peace and quiet - what's not to like? The Old School is perfect in every way and is highly recommended.
