How many people can sleep in one room?
There is one bedroom that will accommodate an extra single bed (see tariffs). Otherwise our bedrooms are for a maximum of two people.
Are children welcome?
For the peace and relaxation of our guests we can only accommodate children of 14 and over responsible enough to be left in their bedroom without supervision. And if the whole house is booked by one party then their youngsters are welcome. We do not have cots or high chairs.
Can we bring a pet?
Very regrettably, no dogs or pets are allowed at The Old School other than certified service dogs.
Do you take payment cards?
Yes, we do take credit and debit cards including Amex. (Cash and cheques are accepted too, but are my least favourite option!).
