Five of us stayed overnight recently as part of a cycle ride from Dunbar to Newcastle. We had a warm greeting from the owner who very kindly allowed us to store our bikes in her rear garden which meant we had to take them through her living room! The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was served in the...

The Olde School House is run by Joan and Andrew and their two well manered children Charlie and Archie. I recently spent four days with them and enjoyed every minute. I didn't feel like a paying guest, more like visiting family and friends. The Olde School House is situated in a quiet area only a ten minutes walk from the...

A quiet location as only a 10-15 min walk into Seahouses and the same distance to the beach. Very good breakfast. T V in the room . A hairdryer was useful too. parking for guests. Good water pressure for the shower.

Recently stayed for one night, after booking through lastminute.com. The room was very comfortable and clean. The only issues I had were that the bed was described as King size but was actually two single beds pushed together, not ideal when you're over 6ft tall, and there was no fridge in the room. That said, there were plenty of refreshments...

We first stayed at the Olde School House on our first visit to Northumberland in October.2016. We fell in love with the area and couldn't wait to return to this beautiful county and to this delightful B and B.

This was our second visit to The olde school house as we loved it so much last time that when my brother announced his wedding in Alnwick there was no question of where we wanted to stay over! The village of Seahouses is beautiful and only a short walk away. The accommodation is fantastic. The rooms are large, comfortable and...

My new benchmark against which I will judge all other B&Bs. Superb breakfast cooked by the lovely Joan. Room clean, comfortable and spacious. Loved the fridge for guests' use and the basket of extra goodies left in the corridor (especially the stem ginger biscuits!). Five stars are not enough and I would thoroughly recommend The Olde School House.
