This has got to be the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Although you might think the bathroom not being ensuite could be a problem in fact it was the opposite. It was just across a small landing but as it is all completly private it gave us much more space than an ensuite would. The breakfast was lovely... More

Only a couple of hundred yards from Wallingford centre it was ideal for our walk on the Thames Path. Hosts very welcoming, relaxed and friendly. The house was a lovely eclectic mix of furnishings a number of which acquired on thier overseas travels. We had Bill's salmon and eggs mentioned on other reviews and was a great start to the...

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

My wife and I spent three fantastic nights at the Old School House B&B in historic Wallingford England. Our hosts Bill and Carolyn were super friendly and made us feel right at home. 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
