Me and my partner stayed in this fantastic B&B last Fri-Sun, we were greeted with a big warm welcome and were made to feel at home straight away. Yvonne and Steve are fantastic hosts and could not have been more helpful. The rooms and facilities were great and Yvonne's breakfasts are to die for, they definitely live up to there... More

What a lovely place. We are so glad we stumbled across The Old School B&B when trying to find somewhere to stay close to Alnwick. It is simply the best B&B we have ever stayed in. We like to travel all over the UK & generally book B&B's rather than hotels where possible. Yvonne & Steve were fabulous hosts. Such... More

Perfect hosts, excellent facilities with many thoughtful little extras. We received a wonderful welcome and the breakfasts were amazing. Having stayed in many B & Bs this one definitely leads the field.

We returned to the Old School House as we had always been very pleased when we had visited under the previous owners. The new owners Yvonne and Steve were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The fantastic breakfasts were always a feature of our previous visits, and Yvonne has maintained... More

Jackie and I have been to so many b & b's and have thought that most were good, some were better than others, but in The Old School I believe that it couldn't possibly be bettered. Steve and Yvonne have it just right. On every level it is a 5 star rating. From the greeting, which includes a tour of... More

We have just returned from a three night break at the Old School House.The owners Yvonne and Steve are such a lovely friendly couple and they go out of their way to give you the most relaxing break possible. The bedroom was so comfortable and spotless, with nice personal touches such as dressing gowns and maps of the local area... More

We have just returned from a over nights stay at the "Old School House" at Newton on the moor just outside of Alnwick Northumberland.
