This old school has been beautifully converted and now offers the most comfortable accommodation. My wife and I have stayed here previously and are always impressed by how spotlessly clean and fresh the property is. Our room was spacious and very comfortable offering views of Horrabridge. Breakfasts are always delicious, Highly recommended.

We stayed at the old school guesthouse for four nights while our daughter was getting married nearby. The place is clean and comfortable and the staff are very hospitable. The breakfasts are beautiful all locally sourced ingredients. I would love to stay there again.

Good points: Plenty off road parking, welcoming, clean and fresh smelling laundry, spacious room, fresh milk in the fridge, good breakfast, home made bread (jams and butter), extra snacks in room, dressing gown in cupboard. Things not to my taste or expectation of a 5 star rated guest house: Hard hard bed, shower room across a 'private' gallery corridor (as... More

Thank you Maxine for making our stay so lovely. From the moment we walked in we felt comfortable. Your house is smashing and so inviting. We loved the room and found the bed very comfortable. We liked the skylights with the electric shutters - it's a shame we couldn't see the stars because of the clouds. The packets of crisps... More

We agree the first impression was not that good(moment of truth). Maxine made us welcome and advised well about the village and where to find an evening meal. The London Inn was excellent. Our room was comfortable and the firm bed ideal. The tea making facilities were good and the breakfast was OK. We were not that keen on having... More

Just returned from a 1 night stay. Fabulous place, great room, breakfast was wonderful using locally sourced food and Maxine and Chris the owners make their own bread, butter, preserves and cure their own bacon which made breakfast time. Lovely hosts and will definately use again ☺
