The Old School House description

The Old School House is a traditional, detached, stone house (whole of house in photograph) in the conservation area of the quiet, unspoilt village of Lower Swell. Originally built in 1869 for the village school mistress, the house has been renovated, having interiors which are both pretty and contemporary.
The holiday property boasts a selection of delightful interior and exterior features which make it an individual and unique choice. These include a beautiful old stone fireplace, original walk-in pantry, romantic bathroom with clawfoot bath and stone fireplace, not to mention its pretty bedrooms with French cotton bed linen. The curtains and fabrics are by Designers Guild, Colefax & Fowler and Liberty.
