We are a group of school friends who meet up every year. This was a fantastic place with the perfect space. We loved being able to set the dining room up for mealtimes and found the buffet sideboard a brilliant addition.
It is a character property with a few quirky corners but the furnishings and all beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the garden and hot tub.
It is a great property if you have less mobile people with you as there is a ground floor bedroom and full wet room opposite.
Mrs Blanchard, Hertfordshire
,The Old Schoolhouse and cottage is very well presented and exactly as described.
,We had a thoroughly enjoyable long weekend with our combined family and the property suited us perfectly. There was plenty of space for the children to enjoy themselves and for the adults to sit chatting knowing that the children were entertaining themselves. We plan to return to the property in February with a group of old friends and would thoroughly recommend to others.

Mrs Thackwray, West Midlands
,The Old Schoolhouse and Cottage was beautiful, the owner was friendly and at hand when needed. The hot tub was huge and we used it a lot. The fridges and dishwashers made catering for 16 people easy.
Mrs Ridgeway, West Midlands
,The house and cottage had all the facilities (and more) that we could possibly have hoped for. The owner could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and we all felt really relaxed and at home in the propert(ies). Local amenities were very close at hand, and the area was a delight to explore. We were all very sorry to have to leave when our holiday was over.
,A group of 17 came to The Old Schoolhouse for a long weekend to celebrate the retirement of one on us. The house and gardens were amazing! We made excellent use of the hot tub and the wood fire, and catering for 17 was made easier by the abundance of cutlery, glasses etc. Everybody had a brilliant time and without exception said they would recommend it to their friends. The local area, town and pub were all lovely. A thoroughly thoroughly enjoyable time was had any all. Thank you.

,A fantastic cottage with more than enough room and facilities for 17 people without it feeling cramped. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the house is obviously well looked after. The hot tub and gardens were great.
,This property was perfect for our medical graduates of 1972 reunion. The house was homely, the garden really lovely. All facilities were wonderful and the house was perfectly equipped for catering for large numbers. For those who enjoyed walking, there was a good choice of routes.
,The owner made our stay both easy & comfortable and everyone we came into contact with made us feel very welcome. The property was just perfect for our requirements and felt very much like a home. The gardens were stunning and very well kept, a haven for peace and tranquillity. The village was an ideal base to be able to go out in the evening and find somewhere to eat.
