Thank you for your kind comments. It was lovely to welcome an International Cricket Umpire from South Africa to The Old School. We are so glad you liked the cricket bat cake we arranged to welcome you and make you feel at home! We look forward to welcoming you back to The Old School. Kindest regards. Helen and Andrew.

“What a Find”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Old School in May this year. The property is stunning and everything was provided - even down to a bread maker! It is also well situated close to Berwick itself and close to Lindisfarne (a must) and Bamburgh Castle. Even when it rained we had a lovely relaxing day at home watching videos and relaxing with a glass or two. Well done Helen and Andrew - we shall return.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you were impressed with the property. It is really helpful to hear that you found the property to be so well equipped as we have worked hard to make sure that everything that guests could possibly need is provided. We have recently improved our welcome hamper to include wine and chocolate as well as bread, milk and lovely home baked cake. It is great to hear that you intend to return in the future and you will be made very welcome. Kindest regards. Helen and Andrew Dempster.

“Rural luxury and comfort, near to stunning coastal scenery”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We knew the area well, so were delighted to book a break at the Old School. The house is extremely comfortable and blissfully well appointed, decoration looks fresh. The beds are sumptuous, the furnishings stylish and tasteful. We could imagine the lounge in its former schoolroom days, the character has remained. We have already booked our return trip with friends! Rural location but near to amenities in Berwick. Be sure to try the fishmongers (roundabout A1 Berwick) for the deals. Walking on the Berwick city walls and the costal path at St Abbs head are a must. Lindisfarne 15 minutes by car.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Old School. We are so glad that you found the property to be so comfortable. We were also so pleased that you felt that the character of the property has remained as this is important to us. We agree that the fishmonger is really good as the fish and seafood are caught locally at Eyemouth and are really fresh. We look forward to welcoming you to The Old School again. Kindest regards, Helen and Andrew Dempster.
