Spent a wonderful day at The Old School House. Gardens are magnificent. Stayed in Moroccan room which was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Bill made us a great full English breakfast in the morning.

I have stayed at The Old School House 3 times now, lovely rooms (stayed in both). Fantastic breakfast (try Bill's Smoked Salmon & Scrambled Eggs), everything you could wish for & fantastic hosts. Recommend for either one night or a weeks stay.

You can't put a price on benevolence and hospitality, something Carolyn and Bill have by the bucket load. Complete strangers who embraced the situation and went far and beyond to make the 4 night stay a home from home. I can not thank you enough. Vicky, Tony & James

We arrived after a long cycle from London and well welcomed wonderfully by our hosts Bill and Carolyn. They could see we were exhausted and offered us a cup of tea straightaway! We stayed in the double room, which had everything we needed and was impeccably clean. The bathroom opposite was large and had plenty of products we could use.... More

The town, the house, the garden, the nice rooms and the wonderful breakfast prepared by Bill make it a great place to stay. The only thing we as a a family had was that we fell a... More

The comfortable room was tastefully furnished in an upscale style with Moroccan designer touches. The bed was very comfortable and combined with the quiet neighborhood made for... More

My husband and I stayed here whilst visiting friends and what a lovely little find this is! The house is a beautiful place with charming decor and one on the most comfortable beds I have slept in. The room was something you would find in a country house with lots of quirky little features. It was lovely waking up looking... More

I enjoyed my stay here very much. The cooked breakfasts by Bill were fantastic with a friendly chat with the paper before work and advice on the local area. The room had all the necessities and more with an ideal location to walk into the market town of Wallingford. Hard to notice which building when first arriving but after that... More
