    Nicely presented. Well equipped. Very close to good fish and chip shop and very well stocked village store. Interesting historic places to visit. Village of Clare worth a visit - embossed exterior plasterwork on museum by the church, for anyone interested. As one would expect for a property of this age, the stairs are steep and the steps are shallow by modern standards. Nice house, friendly owner and welcome pack was delicious. Thank you Wendy

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments and the historical information regarding Clare, which I did not know. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future.

    The old School cottage is well situated for visiting surrounding areas. It is well equipped and nicely decorated with a lovely if small totally enclosed patio, ideal for the dog. We had a lovely welcome basket awaiting us. The dog was catered for with throw and towel bowels and poo bags. Beds were very comfy and spacious rooms. The only thing for us was being so close to the road and feeling a little exposed to passers by, as no nets or shutters in front window. So if that isn't an issue for you i would highly recommend it.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review and I am pleased you found the property comfortable. I have noted your comments regarding net curtains/shutters and will take this into consideration although I would not like to make the room too dark during the day, but yes worth considering.

    We had a great time at The Old School House! It’s cosy and welcoming, the owner is attentive and the little touches are brilliant. Great for families, our children loved the books and toys that they discovered when we arrived, as well as the play area opposite! The kitchen is well stocked and spacious, and the bathroom clean and up to date. We’d definitely return! Highly recommended.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Old School House; I do like to try and make the house as comfortable as possible and hopefully a home from home experience.
