The Old School

Wel­come to The Old School, vot­ed the No.1 B&B in Europe & UK in TripAdvisor’s Trav­ellers’ Choice Awards 2018 – and delight­ed to once again spon­sor ChipLit­Fest.

Built in 1854 by Mr Hinch­man, a local brew­ery own­er and Vic­to­ri­an phil­an­thropist, this once thriv­ing vil­lage school closed in 1996 to become a day nurs­ery until 2007 when John and I pur­chased this icon­ic build­ing …. and so our excit­ing new adven­ture began. 

The Old School B&B is an award-win­ning home-from-home’ – wel­com­ing, relaxed, and friend­ly. Enjoy spot­ting some fas­ci­nat­ing school-day nos­tal­gia with­in its old walls and there are very few school rules! Take a look at our video below for a birds’ eye view’ of our home.

Set amidst the glo­ri­ous north Cotswolds in England’s largest Area of Out­stand­ing Nat­ur­al Beau­ty, our home is a haven for you to relax, refresh and revive, ready for anoth­er day dis­cov­er­ing unspoilt sleepy vil­lages, soak­ing up the atmos­phere of hon­ey-coloured bustling mar­ket towns or star­ing in awe at the won­der­ful build­ings and fas­ci­nat­ing sights in his­toric Oxford, Cirences­ter, War­wick or Shakespeare’s home town, Stratford-upon-Avon.

For you to appre­ci­ate why John and I are pas­sion­ate about our home and your stay in the beau­ti­ful Cotswolds, why not read some of our won­der­ful reviews from guests.
