The room is very nice and comfortable. Keep in mind that this is these folks house, I think there are only 1 or 2 (maybe 3 at most) rooms for the B&B. My wife and I loved it. Wallingford is pretty charming. Did Midsommer Murders tours from here, and it was a good place to stay. Great supermarket within walking...

I had a lovely night here, staying in the Moroccan room. Extremely comfortable and quiet, with literally everything you could wish for, total luxury! And only 5 mins walk to Waitrose. Fabulous breakfast of melon (with pomegranate seeds and prunes), toast, scrambled eggs, tea, juice etc - couldn't manage any lunch!

I would advise those who wish to avoid stress to avoid this B&B. It is an attractive home but the owner was very upset and critical about 'small' issues that I would have considered helpful, but that she considered stressful - for example, when I asked about being able to check-in after dinner (we were dining in Oxford), or about...

This is a small B&B run by a nice couple. Rooms are decent sized, but dark. Breakfast is held in the solarium. The gardens are beautiful. It's easy to get to surrounding towns for touring. Wallingford has a number of good restaurants.

A nice retreat in the countryside, run by a very nice couple. There are only two rooms each small, one with bathroom and the other with bathroom two steps across the landing. Both rooms are on the top floor up two very steep staircases so it is a bit to lug to get bags up and down. Very nice grounds,...

Visited Wallingford (Causton) as part of our Midsomer Murder Discovery Tour ( and we survived). The Old School House is an ideal location only five minutes walk from the centre of Wallingford where there is a regular bus service to Oxford and Henley (30 mins) so the car can be abandoned. Location sets for Midsomer, Morse, Endeavour, and Lewis are...

B&B descriptions can be one thing and reality another; however, in this case the two worlds collide. We stayed in the stunning Moroccan Suite with a private bath and a view of the garden. The bed was of cloud quality but with more support. The bathroom was large, updated yet charming. The house is filled with an eclectic decor that...

Carolyn and Bill were very warm and welcoming. My visit was lovely and peaceful, exactly what I was looking for in a restful break. Breakfast was tasty and made to order, the room was cosy and warm and the rest of the house had charm and character. Will definately recommend and come back again. Jenny from Banbury

The Old School house offers two types of room; I chose the Moroccan Suite, and it is an easy walk into the town centre. The room is on the first floor (a wide staircase, easy to navigate), it was very warm, the bed is comfortable, the bathroom is large with good hot water, and the view into the garden is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stunning Gothic Victorian School House located 300 metres from town centre . This Victorian School house has recently been restored to a very high standard. The house is set in the grounds of a beautiful and well maintained large garden, adjacent to the Saxon Moat which fed Wallingford Castle opposite. The house provides spacious and comfortable accommodation. Breakfast is served in the conservatory dinning room. The house is situated close to the Thames path (less than 5 mins walk). The Ridgeway, another favourite for walkers, is also close by. Henley is 15 mins drive away. The Henley Regatta and Henley Festival attracts thousands of visitors in July each year. Oxford and Reading are not too far away, 30 mins by bus and less by car. R.A.F. Benson is only 5 minutes away by car, convenient for visitors to the airbase. ... more   less
