I stayed at the Old School in Stratton Audley and the stay was such a pleasure. Sally-Anne is a delight, her welcome was outstanding, and she was attentive and very friendly all the time. The food was lovely and it was such a lovely homely place to stay. The Old School is beautiful and the rooms and bathroom were very clean. I would most certainly stay here again if I am in the area.
Having booked here some time ago for a wedding this weekend, last week upon speaking to Sally-Anne she asked us if we were aware this was not an ensuite b&b.! We were not impressed as we felt the website did not make this entirely clear. Needlessly to say we cancelled the booking losing our deposit. Very disappointed as nearby accommodations are now full. Advice - read the small print very carefully!! In today's market I did expect an ensuite at £90 a night!
Really pretty B&B. Brilliant and welcoming owner/host. Arrival coffee in the garden in the sun was really appreciated. Room very clean and decorated in keeping with the building. Breakfast lovely (extra toast and coffee really saved me from a post-wedding reception hangover). Four of the friendliest, most playful animals (2 cats, 2dogs - all friends) live in the house away from the guest areas and are available for tennis ball chasing. Or ask nicely and make use of the on-site tennis court if you prefer human sports. Would definitely stay again without bothering to research alternatives if we needed a place to stay in the area.
The perfect get away B & B, in a small village with a great local pub, the welcome and service first rate and one of the best Full English I have had in years
Sally Anne also gave us excellent information on the area
