Just back from our third stay at The Old School, and it was as perfect as ever! The accommodation was spotless and the two classrooms have just been awarded their 5 star rating again for another 2 years. The only reason the Staffroom is 4 stars is because it doesn't have a bath. But who needs a bath when you can use the newly installed hot tub in the grounds, we were lucky enough to be able to try it out before Kate makes a few alterations, it was fantastic!! There will also be a sauna available in the next few weeks.
There is so much on offer in the area, for families and couples, a weekly pass at The Landmark Centre is excellent value, the river tubing in Aviemore is amazing fun, there are lots of good places to eat and the most beautiful scenery in Great Britain!
Kate was as welcoming as ever, home made cakes and freshly laid eggs awaited us. All in all another memorable holiday.....already re-booked for next year, we still won't stay anywhere else!!

Thanks for the great review Heather

Now in our fourth year of business, we try really hard to maintain and even improve on standards to make your stay memorable.

It was lovely to see you all again and I'm sure summer 2013 will be her before we know it!

Luxury accommodation indeed- furnished to a very high standard, extremely relaxing and comfortable. A very warm welcome from Kate, showing us round the spotlessly clean and fresh accommodation and kindly providing her home made brownies and own hens' eggs. Excellent bed linen, towels and furnishings. Beautiful, peaceful surroudings and close to all the activies that this area has to offer - especially Landmark which is in the local village - the kids loved it. Only comment would be no Wi-fi, but Kate is working on it! Would defintely recommend and would go back.

Thanks for the great review Julie and I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

We do have wifi available but the signal can be poor due to the thick granite walls of the school building.
Everyone is welcome to access the wifi in the house. I have just bought a Wireless Powerline Extender to improve the signal throughout the holiday accommodation.
We look forward to seeing you and your family back here at The Old School.

This was our second holiday at The Old School, and this stay managed to be even better than the first with the improvements that Kate and David have made to get their five stars! We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed the freshly made brownies whilst we unpacked. The residents dogs were very patient as they were constantly pestered by our children during the week. The classroom was spotlessly clean, warm when we returned in the evening, and although it is graded as 'five star' we have no worries about taking children to stay because it feels so comfortable. Next year's holiday is already provisionally booked and we can't wait to go back! Thank you Kate for helping to make our holiday so enjoyable!!

Spent a fantastic weekend at the Old School House in the staff room and can honestly say what an amazing place it was. As soon as we arrived Kate was outside to great us and had left a freshly backed cake that was a lovely touch. Location wise it was easy to find and although it stood on its own it was only a few minutes away from some truly stunning views. Hoping to return in the not to distant future.

Some of the best accommodation we have ever had, with a hostess who gets it just right. Thanks Kate!
