”Fabulous food from a friendly couple in a lovely old schoolhouse of Cotswold stone, with church-y windows, wood-burner and lots of light.”
“Peaceful, relaxed, thoughtful, luxurious, real quality.”
“A gem of a find. So many comfortable and cosy areas in the house to relax and enjoy that cup of tea! We will certainly recommend to all our friends as well. Thank you.”
ANNE, OLD STRAFFORD UK

“By the time our four days were up, we felt like family, not just clients.”
DOUG, SAN GIMIGNANO, ITALY
“Each morning Wendy helped us map out our adventure for the day. Her suggestions were very helpful and much welcomed… She truly took great care in providing everything we needed.”
SUE, FLORIDA, USA
“Wendy's knowledge of the local area was helpful and her love of local history apparent. A real find!”
MICHELLE, HARPENDON, UK
“This is a wonderful B&B. An example of the thoughtfulness and many nice touches was a list (and useful descriptions) of local pubs for evening meals that Wendy sent us, and the fact that she rang our chosen pub up to book our table."
JOHN, CAMBRIDGE, UK
“Cannot praise highly enough. From the initial enquiry to saying goodbye, Wendy was brilliant. She obviously enjoys welcoming guests and it shows. Nothing was too much trouble.”
“This is a beautiful location, inside and out. The rooms are quiet, well-appointed and spacious, and the beds absolutely perfect for comfort. The bedding, the towels, the little edible treats that come with the room – all just made us feel so much at home!“
JAN M, CRESCENT CITY, CALIFORNIA
“This was my third visit to The Old School in under two years. The attention to detail is lovely. The bed is huge and comfortable, and the high-count sheets are blissfully soft and smooth. The bathroom is lovely, with a generously sized bathtub and a shower powerful enough to knock you off your feet! I wish I had that water pressure at home!“
VICTORIA, LONDON, UK
“Loved the stunning vaulted lounge for games and relaxation and the odd glass of something! Not licensed, so you can bring your own and Wendy provides everything else!”
“I highly recommend the Old School as a wonderful place to get away, be pampered, and enjoy yourself!”
"I would not hesitate to recommend this as an ideal place from which to explore the delights of the Cotswolds. Wendy set the bar very high for all the other B&Bs we stayed at. We rate hers as #1. We'll stay here again if we are fortunate enough to return one day."
JAN, CRESCENT CITY, CALIFORNIA, USA
“What a lucky find in the most beautiful part of the world.”
JENNY AND NORMAN, SOUTH AFRICA
“A perfect place for an old friends’ reunion.”
