“MARVELLOUS”
Reviewed February 2, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We have just returned from a fabulous weekend at The Old School House. Owner Helen was very welcome and accommodating to our needs. The setting was stunning made even better by the huge amount of snow which made it even more fun.
The facilities were spot on and the house was very warm and cosy.
We also visited the ski slope and the local Allenheads Inn which was a homely and very friendly place. The locals were lovely and we had a great meal. we would all love to return soon!!

“What a fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I booked the Old School House for a large group of friends (+ 2 dogs) over New Year - and we all thought it was absolutely fantastic. The living area (open-plan kitchen/dining room/living room) is really comfy/cosy and the kitchen is well equipped (inc. a dish washer). The whole place was very clean and well maintained. The two bedrooms with bunk-beds are a little small - but this wasn't an issue.

It's a great location and the group made the most of the surrounding area - walking, running, mountain biking and road biking.

The owners were really friendly and accommodating too.

“Gorgeous place and people for our family Christmas reunion”
Reviewed December 31, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

All the family, children, parents and grand-parents had a fantastic time in the Old School in Allenheads. The place is charming, well organised, perfect for 10 people and the surrounding were breath-taking. Helen and Alan are lovely and helpful hosts. PERFECT! If you are going over there, try the pub of Allenheads it is a very friendly place.
