This property suited us down to the ground. Would recommend this property. The owners plus their family were great and the views from the garden areas were beautiful. We will be returning.

Everything about our holiday was perfect, just what we wanted. A lovely well maintained property in a perfect location, very peaceful but with easy access of many places to visit from waterfalls to the coast. A perfect holiday and we would definitely visit again.

A superb setting with fantastic views down to the village.The owners made us very welcome on our arrival and showed us around the cottage.On the website the cottage looked stunning and when we arrived it looked even better!The cottage is immaculate and has everything you would need for your weeks stay. Lampeter is a lovely town and you are a short distance from the coast.Overall a great place to stay.Try the dolphin trip at New Quay.

The owners have gone the extra mile with attention to detail everywhere you looked. Views over the hills were stunning from the decked area. A lovely week.

This cottage is an absolute gem. The owner was the perfect hostess, she is kind and considerate, and keen for the guests to have a great time. She provided a fabulous Bara Brith loaf on arrival, which wasn't beaten for taste anywhere in Wales. The cottage was spotlessly clean and excellently appointed. Every comfort had been thought of, and we felt that we were staying in 5-star accommodation, but at a 4-star price. Of the eleven cottages that we stayed in during our UK holiday, this was easily the best.

This is a beautiful place to stay in a fantastic location. It was immaculately clean, with a great open plan living area that seemed bigger than it appeared on the website. The owner made us feel both welcome and at home and it was child and dog friendly. There were lots of little extra touches that made it exceptional, not just the basic provisions but also shower gels, bubble bath for the children, luxurious blanket for the dog, and delicious smelling bed linen.

Accommodation was perfect - plenty of space and excellent facilities. Modern and clean and a bit quirky. Owner was very friendly, helpful and the welcome was special with freshly made cake and other basics supplied. The views from the property are superb and the location great for exploring southern Wales. Wonderful week blessed with 7 days of sunshine!

Stunning! The cottage is beautiful, luxurious, exceptionally clean and extremely comfortable, with panoramic and breathtaking views of the Welsh valleys and hills. The owners are lovely, friendly people who went out of their way to make us feel at home from the minute we arrived. They have really thought of everything, and more! Could not fault this amazing holiday property, or the wonderful owners, and would love to return as soon as we can.

10 out of 10 what a fantastically presented property. The photos do not do this property justice! The house was immaculate and the owners were friendly and welcoming. This was an excellent base to explore the mid Wales coastline and we would definitely return here.

we arrived on Saturday 20th jan and was met by Linda the owner who showed us around and had fresh eggs and brownies left for us. The cottage was very comfy, clean and very well equipped. The hot tub was amazing with great views down the valley which we chilled out in after out walking the dog each afternoon.
December 2018
We have just had a fantastic Christmas here. You can't fault the owners and Linda is just so friendly and lovely. The 'Old School House' is just amazing made that extra special all decorated for Christmas. The owners have thought of everything. We brought stuff that we just haven't even unpacked as it's all supplied. The hot tub and views are just beautiful. We can't recommend this place highly enough. Thank you Linda for letting use this stunning place. We will be back x

We are halfway through our week long stay here with our 2 small dogs. I think by the time we go home the breathtaking views from the garden and hot tub might start to seem real, they are just too perfect and what us londoners only dream about. The house is amazing, everything you need and all good quality utensils, lots of space, games and dvds, sky TV too. Lynda and Tony the owners are friendly and helpful without being in your face but there if you need something. She had made us a bara brith which was delicious! and there were some free range eggs. The hot tub makes this place even more special, it's set at the perfect temperature and the massage jets are just right. The whole area has breath taking views and friendly people. If you stay here you must go to the y Talbot in Tregaron, the burger with cheese and bacon all local produce is amazing in fact all local produce is way more tasty than anything I've tasted lately in london.

We wanted a base where we could tour mid and South Wales from but afforded us some rest and relaxation This cottage provides everything you could wish for in a cottage in the country. We had a really fantastic week. It's so refreshing to find a clean well appointed and equipped cottage with good quality accessories. There was plenty of towels! Bathroom , hot tub and beach towels as well as dressing gown each. The description was very accurate. The back is a real sun trap and views from the hot tub/patio table of open fields with red kites flying above were superb. It was so peaceful. Just what we wanted. A little piece of heaven. The owners were very helpful but unobtrusive. The welcome parcel was really appreciated with home made Welsh tea bread . I loved being in this little bubble and definitely wasn't ready to return to normal life which is quite unusual for me!!

The Old School is a beautiful place to visit inside and out with the old building being retained but brilliantly modernised. Clean and with everything you could want in the kitchen and lounge well stocked with games and DVDs and we were welcomed with home made bara brith as well as some staples (milk, eggs) in the fridge. We saw red kites soaring outside and were in touching distance of lots of areas of natural beauty (Brecons, Pembroke Coast, Brechfa forest etc.). We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to come back to with the dog after a long day walking. Wonderful hosts always willing to help too. Highly recommended.

This is such a beautiful little get away. It's so peaceful and absolutely ideal for a quiet couple of days and you can even bring your dogs. Myself and my husband have been more than once over the May Bank Holiday weekends for a quiet few days. The owners are lovely as is the lovely fruit loaf that awaits you on arrival. It's very clean and modern inside with absolutely everything you would need to cook in the kitchen. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for having us :)

A great property, the photos do not do it justice. The owner and her brother who lives next door were helpful and friendly people. There were plenty of places nearby to visit and plenty of walking opportunities. Had a great visit and will definitely return.

The Old School is a truly wonderful property. The owners have supplied everything you need and were very friendly and welcoming. There were even dressing gowns and slippers in the bedrooms for their guests to use! The views were totally amazing and it was lovely and peaceful. All in all, would recommend The Old School, you will enjoy staying there.

The old school is a lovely place to holiday and relax. On arrival the owners had left fresh flowers, fresh eggs and a homemade bara brith. The conversion has been done to a very good standard and is made even better with the addition of a hot tub overlooking the surrounding countryside. There are some great places to explore nearby including Lampeter, New Quay and Aberaeron. Very nice
