“A brilliant weekend away!”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Thank you for a wonderful stay at The Old School House. The house was well-equipped and we received a very warm welcome. We especially enjoyed playing board games around the wood burner and walks around the beautiful village. The house was very clean and we enjoyed the extra touches that Ian and Debbie provided for us. Highly recommend!

“A wonderful time..............”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

From the moment you walk in, you feel right at home. So much space. It was all the little touches. It was just like staying at a friends house, very homely. Such wonderful comfy beds. stunning view across the pond. Both owners and neighbours were so friendly. Wonderful area, peaceful and quiet but with plenty to do in the area. Wereham is such a beautiful place. I would not hesitate to stay again. We all had a great time and hope to stay there again soon. Many Thanks.

“80th birthday celebration”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A lovely house with excellent facilities set in a "typical" English village complete with village pond, pub and church. Very friendly locals. Perfect for our celebration.

Liked best: everyone sitting round the huge kitchen table.
Liked least: only 1 shower between us all although there was a lovely roll top bath as well.

“This property fails on multiple key performance indicators”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

The bed linen is substandard. "Hotel" quality Egyptian cotton sheets will be 1000 thread count or better. The sheets at the old school house would struggle to be 250!! I was itchy all night. The mattresses are past their "use by" date. The hot water runs out after about three showers (unacceptable for a 4 bedroom house).

The house is heated by heating oil and fumes intrude into the house. There are so many small things that would be easy to fix. It could be very good. But it is not and it was not a pleasant stay.

Surprised by this. No indication of dissatisfaction in daily communications. Not posted by customer who booked and paid but by one member of their party. Customer declined to comment.
For the first time ever neighbours complained about the rudeness of a guest, soiled underwear was left in the wardrobe and there was nothing in the ‘honesty box’ for extras used.
We are sorry this guest found nothing positive to say about his stay and ask for future guests to see our other reviews on this and other sites.

“Lovely Family weekend”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just come back from a family weekend in this cottage. It was a lovely place and very spacious for our family of 7. The only down side would be the only shower in the property is in the en suite bathroom. So being 5 women and 1 shower was a long time to get up in the morning.
We had fun playing on the piano and having lovely family meals at the large table in the kitchen.
You do struggle to get any signal on mobile phones and albeit that you are provided with wifi and the code the reception is not picked up in all rooms of the cottage.
Other than these small things we have a fabulous weekend.

Many thanks.
Very pleased you had a good stay.Hope to welcome you back in the future.
We debated whether to have the roll top bath or install a bath and second shower. We like to wallow in the bath so the roll top won but we do appreciate that it does not suit everyone.
