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

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

We were on a mission to cycle from Lands End to John O' Groats. We stayed at the Old School House en route for one night. We were given a very warm welcome and our room was superb. We also enjoyed a delicious dinner and excellent breakfast. In short, we couldn't have been better looked after and would recommend this... More

I stayed at the Old School as I was competing at a nearby sporting event. My request for very early breakfasts was no problem and set me up for the day. The accommodation was immaculate and the welcome warm. I look forward to a return visit later this year.

No noise or light pollution just peace and quiet in a beautiful setting. Superb breakfasts and an excellent evening meal. An ideal location to explore mid Wales 10/10 for everything. We will return in the near future

Genuinely felt relaxed and almost like part of the family, such was the welcome and friendliness. I also opted for an evening meal which would put some restaurants to shame, beautifully prepared and presented. The accommodation is comfortable with a large sitting room area that is great to relax in. Really I couldn't fault the Old Schoolhouse and would return... More

Thank you for such an enthusiastic review. We really enjoyed your company and it is very clear that we achieved what we set out to do for you. But it is hard not to relax in such a peaceful area.
