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.
