Had a lovely stay, accommodation was superb and very clean, the guest lounge/dinner is great with a roaring log burner, just what you need on a cold winters night. Vicky was an excellent host, nothing was too much trouble, Daisy the black Labrador is very friendly. Highly recommended, great country location.

What a charming host Vicki was. Nothing was too much trouble. The B & B has plenty of character and the rooms are well appointed and clean. Vicki even booked us in for dinner in the local pub, Kings Arms, I think it was called. The breakfast was delicious with all the condiments needed at a time to suit us.... More

Spent 2 nights at the Old School B&B. Absolutely brilliant, first class evening meal (pre booked) on our arrival night. A roaring log fire in our lounge certainly helps with the November weather. Vickie and Tim are excellent hosts.

On both occasions we have found the Old School House very much to our liking. There is a real homely atmosphere and the hosts do their best to make sure you are comfortable.The Old School House is not very easy to find the first time but it is really worthwhile to make the effort.

This B&B is in such a picturesque and quiet location. Vicki and her family including the chickens and dog, Daisy, made us feel very welcome. The original building has been extended and has been done beautifully, with a lovely dining room and gorgeous bedrooms. We were in the Oak Room, which was one of the best rooms we have stayed...

This a fantastic place to stay. A lovely quiet location with beautiful country views. Located up a lane, but not far from the main road and convenient for Welshpool and Llanfair Caerinion. The room was furnished in lovely oak furniture and rich upholstery and excellent facilities kept spotlessly clean. My second day was spent driving a steam loco on the... More

We loved our stay here. We stayed in the Oak Room. It was clean, airy and beautifully presented. Vickie is lovely, and the breakfast was great.
