The Old Sunday School is in the grounds of a Grade-II listed Georgian rectory, opposite a medieval church. It has been newly converted and refurbished in an open-plan contemporary style, and finished to a very high specification. It has a private entrance and garden and patio area. Guests have access to the hosts' seven-acre landscaped garden in an area of outstanding natural beauty. In the summer months [May - early September] guests will have shared use of the outdoor pool with the owners.
“I chose this place for a weekend escape from the hustles and bustles of normal life. Right from the start the booking process was simple with Helen and Paul, I had a couple of questions that were answered very promptly and things carried on positively from there. Upon check-in I was given a brief tour of the gorgeous lodge and reassured that if I needed anything help was a stones throw away but equally I wouldn’t be disturbed - this proved very accurate. It was howling a gale outside so I got through the logs for the fireplace quickly but replacements were left out for me to help myself to as needed. What a lovely touch it was to have a vase of daffodils on the breakfast bar alongside croissants, bread, eggs, jams, tea and coffee. In the fridge there was butter, milk and bacon too. The place was spotless, warm and welcoming. The bed very comfortable and cosy. This was just the escape I needed and I will look forward to a return visit.”
The room has a very comfy, bedside cabinets and a built-in wardrobe. The bathroom has a good shower over the bath. It's self catering accommodation with everything you need in the kitchen. Coffee and many types of tea are offered. Having said that there is often muesli and/or slices of some kind of bread, but white, in the freezer. You can ask.
“Ann was a great host, excellent with communication. and welcome. The house is a great space, with good facilities. Ann is clear with her guests, as to what she expects from them, I really appreciated that. My room was clean and comfortable, Ann met me to show me around and there was an offer of cereal for breakfast if I should need it. Ann made a private bathroom available for me which was a lovely touch, as I had never stayed in an airbnb before and was travelling alone. Thank You Ann for an excellent first experience with Airbnb.”

“A delightful, welcoming family home. Perfect getaway for all those who love peace and quiet, don't want modern straight lines and are not too tall! This little cottage is full of character, as is the village, cosy and comfortable and feels far from the madding crowd! I'm only sorry I didn't have longer there to enjoy it! Thanks so much, Vanda.”
