“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

The Old School House offers only one letting room, but what a room - sleeps up to 4, with comfy armchairs, TV & DVD, fridge, separate dining area and spacious shower room. Private parking, very close to town centre and all facilities. Karen keeps everything beautifully and will extend a warm welcome to her guests.
Kingsbridge is a great base for exploring the South Hams, and if you're as lucky with the weather as we were, you'll have a wonderful time

The facilities of the Old School House are outstanding, as is the welcome. The "room" is more like a self-catering apartment with a lounge area, dining table, fridge and microwave oven as well as a bar billiards table, a separate bathroom and use of the garage and a private garden.

Located just outside the centre of town all local eateries and the riverside pubs are easily accessible. Karen and Stuart are the most knowledgeable and obliging hosts and Jasper provides the warmest of welcomes.

Will be returning again soon (I hope)

The Old School House is a great place to stay. The room was large and comfortable and Karen made us feel very welcome. Her breakfasts were delicious and set us up for our long walks on the coast path. It is in an ideal central location close to public transport and restaurants. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Stayed here on my own out of season in the family room. What great room, like a mini suite. The breakfasts were faultless as was the service. Since my stay, my family have stayed here on my recommendation and were delighted also. Highly recommend this central, quietly located B&B.

I arrived at this period old house, just 5 minutes from the Creek in the heart of Kingsbridge. The room is really the whole ground floor of this charming house. It has a dining area, lovely walk in bathroom and a large bedroom/sitting room. I spent a wonderful evening there with my two daughters. It was like staying in your own apartment. Decorated and furnished to a high, comfortable standard, we did not want to leave the next morning! I have spent many nights in small hotels and B and B accommodation in Devon, this was the most enjoyable. There is a lovely Pub on the Creek, called the Crabshell, the food is excellent and the views great. If you want a really nice break in the South Hams this place is a must! Neil Sutherland Nov 13.

Room Tip: There is only one room, fantastic for a couple but also nice for three and I think four at a squeeze...

This a great place to stay. The room is large and comfortable with plenty of sleeping and sitting room for a family of 4 for less money than a single room at most hotels. The service was very friendly and attentive and it is very close to the town centre. As well as Bed and Breakfast, there are some facilities for self catering which are useful. I would stay here again if I travelled to South Devon.

Room Tip: There is only one room
