We spent 2 nights staying at the Old School House and I can totally recommend it. The apartment is stunning. Huge beams, large log burner and original fireplace, mezzanine bedroom and beautifully fitted kitchen and bathroom (roll top bath!). You even get your own garden and patio area.
We went as a family as four, and there was plenty of room for us all to sleep. Two slept on the sofa bed in front of the roaring fire, which was wonderful.
The house the apartment is set in in stunning. A real piece of history, and Northiam is a great location to get to the Rye and local beaches and villages. Stay here! You won't be disappointed.
The Old School House is as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures.
We were welcomed warmly by Amanda and showed the double height space and all the facilities. Willow (black Labrador) who lives at the house immediately played with and occupied our dog in their secure, enclosed and large garden for most of the visit. So lovely to be staying with other dog people, a lovely change from most 'dog friendly' places that enforce rules for rules sake.
I would certainly recommend to all looking, especially those with dogs who want to also be able to relax!
Northiam is a pleasant town with a nice atmosphere and some beautiful historic buildings. Amidst these lies the location. It boasts a lot of privacy, because it is surrounded by a walled garden. Our selfcatering accommodation even had a very nice garden and patio for us to use. Our little beagle Ludwig had the time of his life wandering around freely in the garden, frequently playing with young labrador dog Willow, who is living together with her lovely owners Mandy and Mazin and their children in the house adjoining the accommodation. From Northiam we explored the region which has al lot to offer for lovers of walking the ancient woods and fields, National Trust highlights such as Bodium castle, delightful pubs nearby, nice sand beaches at Camber Sands and visiting old towns like Rye, Hastings and Winchelsea.
We promised Mandy and Mazin to return, because a week wasn't enough to savour everything this accommodation and the surroundings have to offer!
