A warning. Holiday inn or Travelodge this is not. If this is what you want,
then move on. BUT if you like a wonderful and delightful place run by an articulate, cultured and educated couple then this it. It is an oasis of art, music and literature. The original art work, history, books and location make this a must as something totally different. Gregory is very well educated and a mine of knowledge. Basil Fawlty he is not; so what a bonus to have an Oxford Ph.D. to chat with instead of the usual waiter. And so to breakfast in the library cum dining room. We were the only two there and so it was made for us personally and perfectly. One feels like you are dining with friends and it is a joy to be welcomed into a home as a paying guest but to be treated almost as family.
Oh the house and room and things. 1840. Penny Black year! Stayed in a family room with single beds and "down the corridor" "lavatory and bathroom which is yours. The bath was a little younger than my grandfather but LARGE, O joy!
The house is decorated and arranged in a perfect way. It is right on the border with Scotland and convenient for Lindisfarne and Berwick upon Tweed.
Just glorious. ... I loved it! !
Well done. ...
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in the old school. The owner was very helpful. My daughter particularly enjoyed the bear corner and my two sons enjoyed the murder mystery games. The cottage is situated on the border between Scotland and England.

Old School is in a great location to explore both Scotland and England. The home is in a very quiet area which was very nice to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. It is very clean and the kitchen has everything you could ever need. The rooms are spacious and there is a nice big family room with enough seating to all be together. Helen is lovely to deal with she is extremely efficient with emails and any information you may require. It was truly a wonderful experience for us with many happy memories.
