We needed a base to see a few National Trust locations, and found the ideal place. The owners, Vicki and Tim, could not have been more helpful. Nothing was any bother, from menu to comfort, all was just right. My wife and I were warmly greeted with tea and home made biscuits, and shown to our room,which had marvellous views.... More

A short family break for one night but which turned out to be a great time out, mainly due to the service and location of the Old School B&B. We stayed with our five year old son and his grandparents, meaning we had sole use of the sitting room and were able to eat an evening meal and relax /... More

Thank you for your appreciation. We also feel that our separate guest accommodation -that is part of the house but totally self contained - gives our guests the privacy they deserve. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay so much and felt the benefit of our evening meals. So many of our guests appreciate not having to go... More

A lovely one night stay with my wife and two children in March 2015. A very warm welcome and my five year old daughter wanted to mention that the lady owner was lovely.

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.

Thank you so much for taking time to review us. As a seasoned traveller yourself we very much value your opinion. We think that winter should be no different in a B and B to summer in the comforts on offer and being warm is a must! We look forward to seeing you again soon and we are sure you... More

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.
