    Fabulous building with character and so spacious. Everything you could possibly want. Our dog loved the garden. We will highly recommend. Walking distance to old village and Shanklin seafront. Very clean and lovely comfy beds. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

    We had a lovely family holiday at The Old School House but unfortunately there were some issues with the property as follows: Extractor fan needed in kitchen (smoke alarm going off whenever we cooked) Shower curtain needed in main bathroom also needs an extractor. Mildew in ensuite (lots of wood lice) also shower not working properly (either boiling hot or freezing cold). High chair provided very dirty and unhygienic, needs replacing. Light fitting on table lamp by the patio broken although still connected which is hazardous. Sadly if it wasn’t for these issues we would definitely be coming back next year.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments which we always take seriously as we are a family business whose top priority is to ensure enjoyment of your holiday. First I apologise for the lack of extractor fan in the kitchen. I am aware of the ensuite bathroom and we shall be making this our top priority to rectify as much as possible. I also apologise for the highchair. I always tell holidaymakers, as I always personally meet them, that if there are any issues at all to contact me at any time which I also informed you so that we will endeavour to rectify it - I would have been more than happy to sort this and the issue with the lamp.

    Great accommodation and plenty of space for the size of let. The Old School House is a fabulous property with a history and offers every facility you might need whilst taking a self catering break. Also, the gardens would have been fantastic to use for a barbecue/drinks had the weather been better for us. Local shops allow for picking up the odd item you may be in desperate need for, but you still have the major supermarkets available to you within an easy drive. Unfortunately, because of the weather we did not see Shanklin/Isle of Wight at its best, but i'm sure that with a bit of sunshine its a fantastic place to holiday. Highly recommended and will more than likely use again.

    A really great house for our family of five. We have twins that are 17 months and a toddler who is 4 years old. It’s such a grand place but we were made to feel at home by Sarah.
