This property was plenty roomy for my wife and I. There were great views of the surrounding hills from the living room. Everything was clean and well stocked. The area is quiet and within easy walking distance of everything in Kington. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there.

Quaint and unusual setting, and very nicely done out. Everything we needed was provided with an excellent range of kitchen equipment and crockery. The old schoolroom atmosphere was lovely, and the little courtyard a delight.

This is a lovely comfortable apartment with everything in one large room. The welcome was good and the town is delightful.

We absolutely loved the space and were extremely happy to have been able to stay there. It was a picturesque setting and provided our small family a lovely place to relax. We made full use of the kitchen and we had access to all the comforts of home. Our hostess was extremely kind and we enjoyed meeting her.

A lovely stay in a beautifully sleepy town with excellent walking routes and access to some of the best scenery the country has to offer.

The uniqueness and style of the room was wonderful. The old school room is centrally located in Kington, close to shops and pubs and is perfect for couples.

Excellent accommodation and friendly owners. Very clean and well laid out, nice and warm and perfectly well equipped for self catering. Very comfortable bed. The area is beautiful and we would love to stay again.

The Schoolroom is very private and it was a delight spending a week in a property filled with so much character. The owners were warm and welcoming on arrival and you knew they were there if needed. The position was great. Green hills to the back and the delightful square to the side and only a short walk down into the quaint High Street of Kington. I loved the fact that you could use the bus if you wanted to for trips to surrounding areas. Most enjoyable week.

The School Room was unusual, as it was all contained in one very large room. However, this was cleverly arranged with well defined areas and very tasteful furnishings and fittings. Ideal for a couple (as we were) and spotlessly clean throughout. Car parking was very close and we had no difficulties in finding a space. Information and pictures were excellent before the visit. Owner helpful and friendly.
Mrs Begin
May 2014
The accommodation was spacious, comfortable and full of character. It was great to have towels and linens included, and other special touches. It is situated in a beautiful area, and we particularly enjoyed Hergest Croft Gardens on the outskirts of Kington.
Mrs Ward
June 2014
A lovely peaceful location but close to the town of Kington and all it's amenities, which was brilliant. The landlady was lovely, did not bother us at all but was there if we needed anything. It was a perfect week and we feel really refreshed and relaxed. Beautiful accommodation, I feel we will visit there again.
Mr Fell

For our needs the property was ideally situated as we were in the area to visit friends and family and also to sight see and walk. The are good bus connections so we did not have to rely on driving each day.
Mr Boardman

Very welcoming and accommodating owner. The room was exactly as advertised and had a lovely character and feel to it. Really well furnished kitchen, considering the age of the property, and the WiFi was very reliable. Overall, a really lovely, relaxing place to stay that I'd recommend to everyone.

Property is well situated in Kington - quiet and peaceful. Lots of useful information provided about the area and walking leaflets. Range of TV channels if wanting to stay in and very comfortable sitting area. Plenty of opportunities to eat out but kitchen area well-stocked with utensils etc if eating in.

The School Room was perfect for us as a couple. It was a great base for walking and exploring; the owners provided a vast wealth of information on the surrounding area, which was greatly appreciated.

It was first class, all that could be hoped for and more. The owners were very thoughtful leaving milk/coffee/tea and fruit for our arrival. They were very pleasant and friendly and not at all intrusive. All in all, we couldn't speak highly enough of the whole package.
Mrs Cooper
July 2011
The School Room was a wonderful place to stay. We had a great time walking and exploring the surrounding area and had a very comfortable place to come home to at the end of the day. I would recommend the School Room - we had a really good weeks' stay. Many thanks.
Mr Lawrence
May 2011
A warm welcome by the very helpful hosts. We enjoyed the thoughtful extras (milk, flowers, chocolates) for Easter. The School Room was spacious, and very comfortable - a home away from home. It was well equipped, WiFi internet worked perfectly, local information was provided in the well stocked bookshelf. Car parking was nearby and safe. We highly recommend the School Room and would like to come back another time.

My wife and I loved this converted school room. Spacious main area with purpose-built little bathroom incorporated in one corner of the large room. We especially loved the 2 large sofas where we could both stretch out luxuriously after a stiff walk in the surrounding hills. The place was beautifully warm. Kitchen generally well equipped, though a few half pint tumblers would have come in useful (there were only small or pint sized glasses). This is not a criticism, but the property only having one room means the first person up in the morning has to be very considerate about putting the light on if the other person is still fast asleep. As a suggestion, curtaining off the whole bed area would make all the difference. Owners very friendly. Kington had loads of character and charm, and the school room was brilliantly located for wandering into town within 2 mins. Would definitely consider returning.

The School Room is in a lovely quiet spot, and yet there are many interesting places to visit nearby. We found the owners most helpful and the accommodation exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were a number of nice touches.

my husband and i had a wonderful week staying at the school room a very comfortable clean home from home. A lovely place to come home to after a busy day walking. The school room is situated in the lovely town of kington with lots of interesting walks
January 2015
I loved everything about this venue. The lovely little courtyard, the views from the large Georgian windows across the hills in the one direction and towards the village square from the other. It was comfortable, very well equipped and so central to everything and everywhere. Walking into the town was easy, the public transport was accessible too and the owner was very helpful and friendly.There were so many interesting places to visit, all within a manageable distance. Less than an hour away. Hay-on-Wye. Hereford, Ludlow and of course right on the border with Wales. A perfect mixture and I would definitely visit again.

The School Room was a pleasant,comfortable and very well-equipped place to stay. It was very close to shops, restaurants and pubs in Kington. Kington itself is a good centre for exploring Herefordshire and Mid-Wales, with good walks nearby. A very peaceful and relaxing place and a great change from our usual city life.
