“Birthday Weekend Celebration”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a marvellous weekend at School House - Seventeen of us staying over and a further seven joining us on Sunday to celebrate a very special birthday.

The house is very well equipped, the large kitchen was a boon on Sunday when our planned barbeque was spoiled by rain!!! thankfully the kitchen is so large that we were able to feed all 24 guests without any problem at all.

The beds are very comfortable, the linen and towels are plentiful and great quality.

The outside area provided plenty of room for the children to run off steam while we were able to relax on the patio.

A really relaxing weekend.

Liked best: the size and the equipment provided
Liked least: the patio and paths were overgrown and the gardener should do more than just cut the lawn

“Bloody Brilliant!!!”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We went on holiday for a long weekend to The Old School House as a family, Mums Dads, Brothers, Sisters, Nanas, Grandpas and a whole rake of kids ranging from 2-10 years old, this house did not disappoint, ITS HUGE!!!, VERY QUIRKY, with bedrooms and bathrooms everywhere, the online video does this place no justice I have to say!, the kids had a ball running around everywhere, there wasn't a cross word between them the whole time, and that in turn makes the adults delighted!, yes it could do with updating and sprucing up a little, but we just loved it!!!, the house is right in the heart of the gorgeous village of Middleham, the wee shop, (that sells everything!), the race horses that cross your window frequently, the super-friendly pubs that sell mouth watering food, (The Black Bull especially), Nicky is amazing!! the local folk who are so nice and welcoming!, whether you want to do nothing but relax in front of the fantastic fire, or go out walking to tourist spots, you will not be disappointed with this choice!!, we cant wait to go back!!!
Also, the owner Steve was so nice, helpful and friendly!
Thanks so much once again!!!,We will have nothing but fond memories of Middlham x

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a lovely stay here with our family (9 adults and 6 children). The house is absolutely spectacular. Ideally situated within the beautiful village of Middleham and handy for exploring the whole area. It's really quirky too -perfect for families with kids. Rooms are enormous, everything beautifully decorated., toasty and warm with comfy beds to boot. Pictures really don't do it justice - the house is huge (our children went around on scooters!). Can't wait to go back -Thanks a million!

“One in a Million”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

What a house - impressive from the outside and even better than the photos. Shared between 4 families and easily accommodated 15 people. A children's paradise - hide & seek will never be the same again!
A kitchen with every utensil, masses of pans, plates, glasses & cutlery which is not the case at other rental properties. New Year Dinner for 15 at one table was a success.
Fantastic location within walking distance of Richard 3rd with it's amazing meals and friendly welcome. Accommodating guide at Middleham castle who very kindly allowed us access even though he'd officially closed. Would love to return. Definitely so far the house to beat.

“Weekends away don't get better than this”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A big thank you to Steve and the team for a wonderful stay at School House. We, 14 of us in total, had an amazing weekend & the accommodation played a big part in that - stunning. Everything about it was scaled up to comfortably accommodate large parties. We found it clean and full of charm. A family game of cricket in the back garden & an after-dark game of hide&seek were two highlights. Situated in a lovely, welcoming village. Couldn't have been happier. Steve especially was a great bloke to deal with. Thanks again.
