We had a warm and friendly welcome on arrival and were given tea and cake which was very welcome after a long journey. There was a guest fridge outside the room on the landing and in the room there was hot drink making facilities. The extra little touches such as dressing gowns and glasses provided just in case you wanted... More

The Old School has just three very comfortable bedrooms, a large garden, and is a few minutes walk from the local gastro pub. But the highlight is the welcome guests receive from the hosts, and the attention to detail such as a fridge for guests' use, stocked full of bottles of water which you just help yourself to aand the...

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!

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
