I spent two nights in this delightful B&B with a group of friends. It was the perfect venue for our reunion. The Old School House is beautifully decorated, immensely comfortable and perfectly situated just outside Moreton-in-Marsh, therefore within easy reach of all the famous Cotswold locations. Wendy is an excellent host, friendly, helpful and an amazing cook; breakfast was a...

Do yourself a huge favor when travelling to the lovely Cotswolds - stay at The Old School. In fact, it is reason enough to travel there. In all our travels in many countries, The Old School is the very best we have encountered. The beautifully transformed building, the wonderfully well-equipped rooms, the varied areas for relaxation and congregation, the beautiful...

An excellent, relaxing place to stay for meeting old friends! We were warmly welcomed by Wendy who took us on a tour of The Old School, before providing us with tea. The rooms were light, airy, stylish and very comfortable with some spacious bathrooms. The large vaulted ceiling in the lounge had sofas to sink in, wonderful for chatting before...

6 old school friends stayed here for 2 nights and had an amazing time. Nothing was too much trouble for our delightful host Wendy and the food was absolutely delicious from the extensive breakfast to a home cooked evening meal that was better than we could have found in a restaurant. The rooms are all beautifully decorated with taste and...

We had a great two nights at the Old School B&B; longstanding friends on our now annual gathering. We booked all four rooms & it was a really relaxed and cosy weekend, especially with sole run of the place! Plus walking distance from a pub and a National Trust property! Ours was the 'attic' room; with a huge and comfortable...

This was our fifth visit to The Old School and Wendy & John and, as always, it was a pure delight. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel so welcome and while you are relaxing in the glorious sitting room enjoying tea/coffee and homemade cake, with the warmth of the log burner, you feel so relaxed. Also,...

This is the warmest and the most friendly establishment I have encountered. It is the perfect choice for a group visit - we were six old school friends who took all four double rooms and felt completely at home. We had sole use of the spacious dining room and the impressive lounge and our host, Wendy, could not have been...

John and especially Wendy are born innkeepers. Nothing is too much trouble - dinner reservations, homemade cakes at tea time, another log for the fire, art gallery recommendations, etc. The Old School is a special place; a Cotswold fantasy of a child's barnyard (ducks, hens, rabbits, etc.) with an old village priory school turned into a home-away-from-home bed-and-breakfast. There's port...

What lovely wording, really nice to read back and good to know it is not just the bed and breakfast that brings you back....did you have a good trip home? Thank you for taking time out to post this review - I might or might not let John see it! Keep an eye open on FB for news on the...

We had a wonderful 3 night stay last week and are pleased to say this B&B deserves all the superlatives. Wendy and John make you so very welcome and the house is a delight. We had the Kingham room and found it very comfortable with lovely views over the gardens to the countryside beyond. The guests lounge was charming with...

My adult daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Both Wendy & John made us feel so welcomed to their lovely home. Unfortunately, it was just 1 night. However, The Old School was our favorite accommodation in the Cotswolds and served the best breakfast of our entire trip. We also had our best dinner in the Cotswolds at the Red...

Thank you so much for such a kind review - yes, all too short a visit but what a wonderful journey you both had through this corner of the Cotswold's....no mean feat with some of those hills! Yes, we are so lucky to have The Red Lion within a short stroll too...wonderfully warm and friendly owners to feed and water...
