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. We hate to recommend this find... More

We have recently spent two nights at this fantastic B&B. Vickie couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. We were welcomed with a large pot of tea and the offer of home made cake - so thoughtful after travelling. We were booked into the Pine Room which was extremely comfortable with everything we needed provided even down to... More

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 did enjoy having you stay as you were great company. As our accommodation is ground floor we have a lot of guests with mobility issues who find it very accessible and easy to use as you did. Please come and stay again anytime as it was a real pleasure to have you both. Thanks for such a lovely review.... 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. We also opted for an evening meal, which was very tasty and good value. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom large and spotlessly clean. Our only minor gripe would be the shower... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and had some great weather into the bargain. We were a little puzzled by your comment on the shower as it is a modern 8.5kw model. But we really value genuine, constructive comments so we investigated. I had a shower! And I... More

We had a warm and friendly welcome when we arrived. Vicki was very helpful with every question we asked. The B and B was very clean and comfortable. We all want to go back again soon especially for the breakfast! Thank you Vicki.

Beautifully restored and adapted as a superb B & B. Large, comfortable, ground level bedrooms and excellent en-suite bathrooms with walk in showers. An enormous, comfortably furnished guest lounge. A refreshing change from a couple of sofas under the stairs which many B & B’s call a lounge. Very easy to find in the open countryside, a few minutes out... More

Trip to Wales for a wedding in June '14, and found this B&B on the web. Fairly easy to find in the Welsh hills, and would highly recommend to anyone. All the 'basics' are spot on, such as very clean, roomy, good en-suite etc, but also the food is local and delicious, and Vickie the owner is unobtrusive but always... More
