The Old School Cotage is very secluded and quiet. But within a short 10 minute drive to local attractions and amenities.

We had a wonderful welcome to this cosy cottage. It is in a fantastic location for days out with young families and dogs. The Cottage is well equipped, warm and comfortable, and has the added bonus of an art gallery and framing shop within the grounds. My family and I are looking forward to returning for more adventures.

We were given a very nice welcome. This was a lovely place to stay, the weather was reasonable for the time of year and there are lots of beautiful places to visit. I would definitely recommend The Old School House Cottage. The amenities were perfect, and it was a home from home with more relaxation.

A lovely cottage for the 4 of us with a lovely garden to play in too.

Our week in this cottage was excellent. For anyone taking dogs it was perfect as there are no carpets downstairs thus reducing anxiety about hairs and mud. There are loads of long and short walks straight from the door. Facilities for people were pretty good too!

Warm welcome from the owner when we arrived and she saw us off when we left. We felt very comfortable. Underfloor heating was nice and constant hot water meant we didn't have to think about it. Lots of good walks around the Cottage in a quiet rural area.
