It was clean, with nice bedding and enough towels. Noticed someone put that there was milk in the fridge -not when we stayed- and that they did not like the bed - not an issue for us. However, we picked it partly because it had wifi (we had a mega busy two week, three centred break and were both back... More

Unusual and quirky building in a quiet village with good parking to the front, and yes, we had to pay up front too, which is a little odd. The room was clean, basic and adequate (blue room?) with no added extras - just milk in small fridge, plus tea bags, fruit tea, and instant coffee (biscuits provided only on the... More

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
