We stopped here whilst visiting Powis Castle. The owner was very charming and the breakfast was superb, our room was clean light and airy. They have some very colourful chickens, nearest evening meal is about 3 miles away

I stayed at the Old School for four nights with my seven year old granddaughter recently and what a super time we had! Vickie, the owner was absolutely lovely, very welcoming of my young granddaughter, tolerant of her constant chatter and happy to let her help with the chickens. Vickie's two children, James & Charlotte were also super and an... More

We have just enjoyed our second visit to Old School. Perhaps not unusual except that we live about 10,000 miles away. Having discovered it on our previous trip (see my review of July 2014), we added it to our schedule again and found it just as good the second time. Idyllic countryside location but near to town and a good... More

And it looks like we didn't disappoint this time either. We naturally hope that you will come back again and again! Very best wishes Vickie and family More

Spent one night here two days ago with my girlfriend. Both of us were very warmly greeted by Vicky the proprietor with a refreshing cup of tea and Welsh cakes. Yum yum! ! The setting was quite idyllic what with lots of local wildlife around. Peaceful surroundings prompted a good night's sleep and Vicky's cooking, of locally sourced food, was... More
