We had a first class welcome by the friendly free range hens, followed by a fantastic welcome from Vickie as she opened the door to us, tea and coffee were quickly made and put out for us to enjoy. The room was lovely, spacious and clean. The en- suite had a great size shower cubical. Vickie was a great host, great cook, and a great mum, her children were well mannered when spoken to, looking forward to their day of fishing with their dad. Her chicken curry was lovely, and the salmon fillet my husband had was also cooked to perfection. Breakfast too did never dissapoint with special requests being catered for, the fried bread on my last morning was lovely. Other choices for breakfast include scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, this too was enjoyed by my husband on two mornings. The wonderful local bread was also delicious. Back to the 5 2 diet this week, We hope to find an excuse to go back again.

Room Tip: Both rooms are as good as each other, one has a slightly larger shower than the other, thats all.

We always appreciate when our guests take time out to write a review. We are so pleased you found such a lot of good things to say about us. However, the pleasure was all ours. We enjoyed your company so much that you left quite a gap when you left after your weeks stay. I just wish the weather could have been better but you are such a positive couple that nothing could dampen your spirits.Thank you for staying with us and we would love to see you again.
Very best wishes
Vickie, Tim and family

My husband and I recently spent the night at this delightful B&B. It was once a school house and you can see the words "Boys" and "Girls" in the stone lintels above the entry ways still. There are two guest rooms with private baths in a modern addition to the original school house where the owners live. It's in a country setting, very quiet and peaceful with chickens in the yard. The scenery is lovely and the owners couldn't be nicer. Breakfast was wonderful too. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean and inviting. Can't say enough nice things about this place. It was a great find!

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent. One has a double bed, the other a double and a single bed.

Thank you both for such a lovely review. Your stay was brief but you obviously really understood what The Old School is all about. We are very lucky to live in a beautiful old building in such an unspoilt area. We just add some good food, comfy rooms and a friendly welcome.! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Very best wishes

We had a great two night stay here - Vicky and her husband, Tim, could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. The property is in a fantastic setting and has been extremely well converted to accommodate guests. Breakfast was fantastic with a very wide range on offer. We really enjoyed our stay and will be recommending the The Old school House to family and friends.

The Old School is in a wonderfully peaceful location, but just a few miles from Welshpool (a very friendly town with lots of history - well worth exploring). This was our second visit, and we would not hesitate to return again. The accommodation is thoughtfully laid out, very clean and we were well looked after. There is a choice of evening meal if you wish to stay in, and Vickie's food comes highly recommended.

This bed and breakfast is a beautiful house in a great Welsh landscape. Our stay was as enjoyable as can be, we surely recommend the place. The hostess, Vickie, is quite available and a very interesting person to talk to.

After a 75 mile bike ride from Brecon, it was a welcome relief to arrive at The Old School. Vickie and family gave us a really warm welcome, and the rooms/facilities were great. The rooms were spacious and unlike many B&B's, we were treated to complete privacy. Breakfast was also good. I would definitely recommend

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that after such a long ride you all found The Old School to be just what you needed. We feel that it is so important to offer guests an opportunity to completely relax and that having our guest accommodation totally separate means that this is always possible. We are still marveling at your amazing physical feat of endurance!
You are are always very welcome
