This is an gem of a place with beautiful furnishings and a warm welcome from Carolyn and Bill, for whom nothing seems to be too much trouble. We have stayed here twice and I am sure we shall be back in the future.

Wallingford is a lovely little town, ideally placed for exploring the area and The Old School House is the perfect place to stay whilst doing that - stoked up by the most comprehensive "cooked English breakfast" possible, cooked to your own personal requirements.

Perfect!

Room Tip: We have stayed in the Moroccan (en suite) and the Double (with separate bathroom) rooms and have no complaints about either - just depends whether you mind crossing a small hall to get to the bathroom.

Absolutely perfect, a lovely friendly welcome, a beautiful room, the house and garden are lovely and Bill and Carolyn are great hosts. Carolyn's first words [after her welcome] were "would you like a cup of tea?" music to our ears after a long journey. We honestly could not have wished for anything more, the bed was like sleeping in a cloud and the bathroom one that you just didn't want to leave, the L'Occitaine kept me there. I highly recommend this lovely B&B it ticks all the boxes.

Room Tip: All the rooms are just like the house, lovely!

This is a stunning, stunning house in a very convenient location. I stayed in the Morrocan Room and it was luxurious, comfortable and had lots of lovely touches. Carolyn and Bill are the perfect hosts, and nothing was too much trouble. And I think it was a draw on which of them made the best poached eggs! Highly recommended.

Intended to leave this review back in summer 2011 when we stayed there for one lovely night. We travelled with another couple and between us 2 children under 2. Bill and Carylyn made us feel at ease to leave the children there and head out for a supper in Wallingford. Beautiful house, so homely and very comfortable. We felt genuinely welcomed by hosts who love to meet people. Yummy breakfast, just like being home. Soooo appreciated tolerance of our inquisitive 2 year old. Just watch them in the garden which open out onto a busy road.

Room Tip: You share a bathroom if you take the smaller room.. just opposite, and not a problem at all for us.

The name alone evokes the atmosphere and charm that greets you when you enter Bill and Carolyn's home. We were shown to our room in what seemed like our own private wing of this beautiful gothic victorian style house and we felt immediately at home. The immaculate White linen in striking contrast with the dark engraved doors leading to the sultry Moroccan shower suite. This is not an ordinary B&B. It's not even an M&S B&B. This is rare treat.

Breakfast was served in the conservatory and how delightful it was to enjoy a full English which was cooked perfectly whilst listening to the birdsong and looking out over the garden.

We recommend The Old SchoolHouse, Wallingford without hesitation.
