Our second stay with Yvonne and Steve this year, and another warm, friendly welcome - great breakfasts and fabulous advice on where to visit during our stay. The room was again clean and really cosy and the little extras like access to the fridge for extra milk, complimentary water and to store our wine make a difference. Would thoroughly recommend...

Spent a couple of nights at the charming Old School B&B. As with the other reviewers, we were given a warm, friendly welcome by Yvonne and Steve. The house is absolutely lovely, with lots of nice details. The breakfast deserves all the accolades on the other reviews. The food is clearly top quality and was cooked perfectly. The eggs were...

We were a party of five staying for three nights a few days before Christmas. We cannot thank Steve and Yvonne enough for their kindness and hospitality. The accomodation was very clean and cosy. The breakfasts were excellent and more than enough if you wanted. Steve and Yvonne were as much like family as one can be having just met,... More

We brought the snow and cold weather with us from South Yorkshire, but the welcome at The Old School House could not have been warmer. Yvonne and Steve are perfect hosts and cannot do enough to make you feel right at home. The rooms are lovely and breakfast is fantastic. There is also a great pub for evening meals just... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay for a relaxing and romantic weekend away; and a weekend escape from the kids. After reading some great reviews on trip advisor we booked up and were not dissapointed. We were greeted with a warm reception, and were offered cake and beverages which we enjoyed outside our bedroom over looking the gardens. I... More

This was all topped of by the warmth and hospitality offered by Yvonne and Steve who made you so welcome you just felt at home. We would highly recommend The Old School and will definitely be booking... More

We've just returned from a wonderful two night stay at The Old School. From the lovely warm welcome on arrival, to a fond farewell (and promise to return), it was like home from home. Steve and Yvonne are the perfect hosts, friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble! The room was immaculate and tastefully decorated, the bed was extremely... More

The Old School is a wonderful B&B in gorgeous surroundings. The breakfast there is faultless and we slept unconsciously in the incredibly comfortable bedroom. We were in need of loving tender care and we found it there in abundance. The owners Yvonne and Steve are very warm and welcoming people and treated us like VIPs from the moment we arrived.... More
