Residents are welcome to relax in the guest lounge and conservatory overlooking the garden in the afternoon over a cup of tea or coffee and have access to a wide choice of books and information of local, geographical and historical as well as equestrian, canine and general interest.
We have 3 dogs ourselves, so visiting dogs are very welcome at The Old School B&B. They can stay in the room with you and come to the guest lounge. There are a number of nice local walks.
