Two weary cold C2C cyclists arrived at The Old Schoolhouse on 9/11/13. After locking the bikes away it was into the accommodation for a hot shower and change into clean dry clothes. Helen came and informed us that the pub was not serving meals that evening so she said she would prepare us a meal which she did giving a choice of meals to choose from. The welcome and hospitality offered by the owners is second to none and I would not hesitate to recommend it to all my friends. Thanks Helen and Alan for making it a great experience.

Not sure whats happening but this is my third attempt to comment on this accommodation hope it works this time excellent accommodation and I cannot praise Helen enough for how well she looked after us with the pub not serving meals that evening. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend any of my friends doing the C2C to stay there too.

A warm, welcoming feel to the place. Ten of us enjoyed the wonderful hospitality and fantastic breakfast served up by Helen and Alan. Many thanks.
