Having discovered it on our previous trip (see my review of July 2014), we added it to our schedule again and found it just as good the second time. Idyllic countryside location but near to town and a good...

We were so honoured and pleased to have had you stay again. We get a huge amount of guests making return and repeat visits but never from Australia! And it looks like we didn't disappoint this time either. We naturally hope that you will come back again and again! Very best wishes Vickie and family

The setting was quite idyllic what with lots of local wildlife around. Peaceful surroundings prompted a good night's sleep and Vicky's cooking, of locally sourced food, was...

This was our third stay at The Old School B&B and this time it was with our 3 month old baby. Vickie was very accommodating as always, flexible with arrival and departure times and made us feel instantly at home again. There are two immaculately clean en-suite bedrooms with a shared living/dining area and a roaring wood-burning stove with comfy...

We stayed at the Old School Bed and Breakfast in September for the fifth time and yet again it was a real joy. The rooms are clean and spacious with a boutique feel and lots of personal touches. Always a warm welcome and now the seasons are changing the log burner in the guests sitting room was a lovely treat....

Thank you so much for your appreciation. We have alot of regular guests like yourself and it's important to keep our standards high for you.

Visited Welshpool on business last minute and Vickie and her husband accommodated us very nicely. Had both evening dinner and breakfast here- both were superb couldn't ask more. Great value also. The scenery in the surrounding area was stunning too. I would highly recommend if you're in Welshpool or the area.
