Old School Rooms
The Old School Dining Hall and an upstairs vaulted-ceiling Sitting Room are enjoyed by our Guests as well as our four very comfortable ensuite bedrooms (see photos and descriptions, below).
Please note that there is free wi-fi available all through the house.
Named after neighbouring village schools, all four bedrooms have super-king size double beds (6ft wide by 6ft 6in long / 180cm x 200cm) made up with Egyptian 900TC cotton sheets, hypo-allergenic duvets and pillows. Blankets are available on request.
In all our ensuite bedrooms ..
...which have all been recently repainted, with new curtains and carpets ...
...there is an under-counter refrigerator to keep your freshly supplied milk and locally sourced bottled water chilled – essential too, if you fancy bringing your own bubbly or spirits! We can provide extra ice and a slice, and appropriate glasses. Our guests have a kettle and a choice of premium-quality coffee and tea with decaffeinated options and assorted herbal and fruit teas, plus biscuits to nibble on.
Our bedrooms are also supplied with a small flat TV – bedside alarm clock – hairdryer – hand torch / flashlight – hot water bottles – spare blankets – cooling / warm-air fans – luggage rack – glass tumblers – bottle opener – laundry bags – shoe horn – USB socket – emergency torch / night light, compliant smoke detector – fire action plan for each room – and a fire extinguisher.
Pamper yourself in your en-suite bathroom with our gorgeous, gentle-on-the skin toiletries – fluffy towelling dressing gowns - and complimentary slippers. Wrap yourself in our super-soft bath sheets, large enough to hide your modesty! All provided by the Old School B& B to make your stay very comfortable indeed.
We also offer complimentary use of a washing machine, dryer and ironing board for guests staying two nights or more, by arrangement.
You are provided with your own labelled key fob with key for access into the house and your bedroom, and this is yours for the duration of your stay. If lost, or not handed back on departure or sent back (by registered delivery) within a reasonable timescale, you will be asked to pay £50 towards the replacement cost.
Our popular ground floor bedroom was the Headmistress's office (also used by the local dentist and for de-nitting pupils' hair by Nitty Nora!). Reed has a fitted double wardrobe with shelving and armchair and a very spacious en-suite bathroom (once the Old School's inkwell room) with bath / WC / shower.
First floor double bedroom with a small ensuite offering a walk-in shower / WC (no bath). Kingham also has a large fitted mirrored wardrobe with sliding doors, an easy chair and dressing table and chair. This room takes an additional full-size single bed when required.
First floor double bedroom with dressing table and two easy chairs, and a bathroom with walk-in shower / WC (no bath). Dormer also has a walk-in dressing room ensuite which has a useful self-contained area for making teas and coffees.
A private door and staircase takes you up to Kitebrook landing, which leads onto into a bright double bedroom with small freestanding wardrobe, side console and small easy chair. (I think this room housed the school bell). Kitebrook can be changed to a twin-bed option, if required, for a stay of two nights or more. The large bathroom, just across the private landing, has a bath with a screened power shower, and WC.
From 1st April 2020 our room rate is £148.00 including VAT.
This price is per room, per night, double or twin occupancy and includes a full English breakfast with plenty of choices, and afternoon tea and home-made cake upon your day of arrival.
For stays over a weekend we ask for a minimum two-night booking which can fall either side to include the Saturday night.
And over the Christmas and New Year week and all Bank Holidays, we ask for a minimum three-night stay. But please always check with us as we might have a natural gap which works for your dates.

Subject to availability, one bedroom only can accommodate an additional single bed. From 1st April 2020, Triple Occupancy rate is £220 including VAT.
To confirm your reservation, a non-refundable deposit of £50 per room, per night is required upon booking. Once payment has been cleared and a confirmation email has been sent to you, your booking has been secured. Whilst I am a very small business, I do try to be flexible, depending on personal circumstances.
