A beautiful & comfortable home from home with everything you need for your stay and if there is something that is not there, Karen will try and get it for you. A lovely touch with the little treats too. Bed is very comfy and there is also a smart tv. Ample wardrobes and a lovely bath. I have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to you all.

What a wonderful place to stay. Karen was super welcoming. The home was spotlessly clean and full of lovely homely touches. It was a great self contained room with everything we needed. A very comfy bed and even though it was on the main road a very quiet room. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The Old School House is a delightful building that is easy to find in East Challow. The suite has been carefully designed, and for the size the bathroom is particularly luxurious. Karen and Andrew have added lots of small thoughtful touches, from extra toiletries to snacks, tea and coffee. It's a cozy stay very close to nearby tourist attractions, such as the Uffington White Horse. Karen was a friendly and affable host and the communication was excellent. Strongly recommend!

Karen gave me a warm welcome and made me feel at home. Accommodation was beautiful, a home away from home! Little touches like a pint of milk in a mini fridge and travel size toiletries on hand really were appreciated. I'd definitely recommend.

A really, really lovely place to stay. Wonderful hosts who got us in last minute and still gave us extras that were so thoughtful. Fabulously comfortable and warm, a super cute cottage style studio with off street parking and pubs,restaurants, shops etc not far away. Had a dinner and movie night on the smart tv with tea and chocolate and cakes provided to us for breakfast before a lovely late checkout. Superb, will definitely return and recommend to anyone.

Lovely house in a peaceful location,surrounded by countryside and other small villages. Anything we could need was provided.The self contained area we had was nice and clean and enabled us to have a nice relaxing and comfortable stay. Could not fault the experience and will definitely try and stay here again if visiting this lovely part of the world again.
