“A superb week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

In a beautiful location by the village green, The Old School House, is a great property to spend a holiday in. It is very comfortable and is well equipped for 6. The pool is a definite attraction especially for the children and is very well managed. The local area is lovely for walks and exploring. A great bonus is the bakery with its cafe/restaurant, gorgeous bread and super food. The gallery upstairs is well worth a look with lots of interesting items that are not overpriced. There is also lots to do in the surrounding area.

“Lovely welcoming accommodation in nice location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We found the Old School House and pool to be warm, clean and spacious. It is set in a small pretty village with the added bonus of a nearby pub which reopened on the last night of our holiday. The owner , Jane was very approachable and helpful. The pool and sauna was an added bonus which we all enjoyed on a nightly basis after we had visited the local area and lakes. We would definitely recommend it and would return should the opportunity arise.

We arrived to a warm welcome from Jane at the "Old School House". The accommodation was clean, tidy, spacious and with all the little extras you could possibly need. The house was very well equipped, warm and quiet being well set back from the road. The open fire was a real treat after walking around the local area. The pool was warm and had a fast lane (which is like a treadmill for swimmers which I particularly enjoyed), a warming cleansing sauna and good changing facilities.
The village has an excellent bakery with a coffee shop/eatery attached. Also there is a small shop with all the essentials available including newspapers and a very interesting antique/curio's shop (a must to visit!).
Unfortunately the village pub had closed down a few weeks earlier, but this was not an issue for our group.
Its location is great for travelling to a wide variety of a attractions. Keswick is approx. 30 minutes drive away
We would highly recommend this cottage and look forward to visiting it again in the future.
