Very Good

“What a find!”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2015

What a find! The Old School is excellently appointed, comfortable and a very relaxing environment. Three generations gathered for a surprise birthday party and we cooked a full Sunday roast. The kitchen was superbly kitted out and everything easy to use including the very welcome dishwasher. The Welcome Handbook was very comprehensive and told us everything we needed to know about the house and the area and we had a super day at the beach. We would definitely book with Helen again if enough of us came to the area at once. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

“The Old School - Part 3 Another Amazing Holiday”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2015

This is our 3rd visit to The Old School & its been as fabulous as our previous stays! The property is extremely comfortable & caters for all ages & needs! Helen & Andrew are wonderful hosts & Helen (who is the keyholder) is a treasure providing baking to rival Mary Berry!! There is plenty to do being so close to coast or country, it is easy to meander between England & Scotland! There are lots of National Trust & English/Scottish Heritage places to visit n the most beautiful beaches! We adore our holidays at the Old School & cant wait to return!!!

“Wonderful Stay”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2013

The Old School really is a home away from home. We stayed for a long weekend in December and we couldn't ask for any more. The location is perfect with plenty to do and the Old School itself was luxury and extremely well equipped. My 3 year old particularly loved bear corner and playing with the toys. (I suppose you could never have enough toys when you're three) Helen made the booking process so simple and was very easy to get hold of and speak to if we had any queries. In all we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it was nice to be able to all sit together on an evening which isn't something you usually get when a large group go away together. I wouldn't hesitate in returning to the Old School in the future. Thanks again Helen.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments which we appreciate. We are so glad that bear corner was a hit with your 3 year old. It was also good to know that the spacious lounge allowed you all to sit together and that you found the property to be luxurious and well equipped :-) We are also glad that we were able to handle the booking process and queries to your satisfaction. You would be welcome again anytime on a return visit. Kindest regards Helen and Andrew

We love the house and the area as there is so much to do inside and out whatever the weather! The owners have thought of everything you need for a cosy, comfortable, calm holiday from the superbly stocked and well resourced kitchen to the complimentary toiletries your holidsy needs are well catered for whatever your age! Our daughters love the bear school, toys and books provided and also the sumptuous ballet room! WE WILL DEFINATELY BE RETURNING ASAP

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. Welcoming guests for a second visit is really exiting for us as it tells us we must be getting it right if people want to return. Feedback like yours makes all our hard work so worthwhile. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

“Best Holiday Yet!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2013

The Old School offers something for everyone! We havew holidayed in the UK for the last 15 years and the Old School is the most comfortable well resourced accomadation we have stayed in! The Bear Corner and ballet room were great hits with our daughters and nephew! Helen and Andrew have really gone the extra mile to ensure that their guests our well catered for: providing complimentary cleaning products and toiletries aswell as a very well stocked lardere cupboard and fantastic welcome pack with home made cake! Helen also organised a lovely birthday cake for our eldest daughter! We had the most fantastic time the area is beautiful, there is loads to do (with or without children) and the Old school is a home from home after a long day out! We would heartily recommend it and will definately be returning!!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are so glad that you had such a lovely time and that your daughters loved bear corner and the ballet room. We look forward to welcoming you to The Old School again. Kindest Regards. Helen and Andrew

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

Old School is a top of the range establishment with a homely feel. All ameneties available, washing machine, dishwasher etc. The location away from the hustle and bustle of town-life makes for an ideal venue for a relaxing stay, still close enough to the town of Berwick upon Tweed. Welcome cake made our stay special from arrival. Great walks in area and the coast is beautiful. Visit to Northumberland a must.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind comments. It was lovely to welcome an International Cricket Umpire from South Africa to The Old School. We are so glad you liked the cricket bat cake we arranged to welcome you and make you feel at home! We look forward to welcoming you back to The Old School. Kindest regards. Helen and Andrew.
