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.

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.
