Nice big room, accessible, good parking, tasty breakfast etc etc. Most importantly the family running the B&B are all delightful. Only a one-night stay but if in the area again know where we'll book. Many thanks.

Once again Claire and I had a fabulous time here. Joan and Andrew made us feel so welcome. We brought the In Laws with us this time, mainly because they kept pestering us that if it's so good why don't we take them too. They had a wonderful time. And thanks to the welcoming atmosphere they will also be returning.... More

You couldn't wish for a better welcome from Joan and family. The room has everything you could need, our family room was very spacious, comfortable and clean. Joan provided an excellent breakfast each day to set us up for the days sightseeing. A brilliant place to base yourself for exploring the area, just a short walk into the village itself... More

After our first visit we were very impressed so when back in area we had no hesitation in booking this B&B again. Very clean and tidy and dog friendly which is just what we need. We would be happy to book again.

Joan and Andrew were absolutely lovely. Joan did a splendid breakfast. The room was was well thought out, nicely decorated, clean and had everything we needed.

We arrived in Seahouses with nowhere to stay after the place we booked turned out to be miles out. We called The Olde School House as it was advertised as dog friendly, the lady who answered the telephone couldn't have been more helpful and told us to come down.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Even the local taxi driver arranged to meet us later to take us back to the hotel from the pub (about 15 min walk, 5 min in taxi - I'm lazy) Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area...
