This is a really lovely cottage that was perfect for the weekend whilst we attended the Big Feastival. It suited our family of 5 well, with very large lounge and dining rooms and the kitchen is of very high quality and well equipped. Although the decor is not of a modern taste, it is of good quality and standard, despite what I have read in other reviews. The bathroom is also modern and has a good shower (electric - so not shortage of hot water) and a separate bath. The cottage is in a lovely quiet village, which may well suit, but there are no local amenities and you'll have to drive to shops etc. It is very convenient if attending the Big Feastival which is only 10mins drive away. If I could change one thing, it would be to make the double bed in the master bedroom larger as this is a small double bed and not ideal - plus there is space in the room for a larger bed and I know other reviews have commented on this. The owner was also very responsive to our communications before we visited. In the event we travel back to the area we wouldn't hesitate to book the Old School House again.

The bathroom and kitchen have been modernised ,the beds are comfortable but the furniture is old and the curtains need replacing.

We had a wonderful 4 night stay. The cottage is in a beautiful hamlet and is set in gorgeous surroundings, but there are a few issues with the interior. The curtains in the lounge need attention, they have numerous hooks missing and are in desperate need of a clean as they are very dusty. I’ve noticed this has been mentioned in several previous reviews but has still not been addressed. The settees are all very uncomfortable and shabby looking. The beds are very small but are comfortable. The bedrooms are super cute and homely looking. The modern kitchen and bathroom are super nice and highlights of the cottage. Please also be aware that the Wi-Fi is very slow and there is no internet security, so maybe the use a VPN would be advantageous. All in all, with a little bit of updating, cleaning and maintenance it could be a super little cottage. Would only return if these changes were made.
