Absolutely fabulous
We have just returned from our stay at The school room and wanted to write a review as my husband, son and I had a lovely time staying here. We had the most relaxing time and found it such a peaceful, tranquil location. We had the best nights sleep in a long time. It's a truly stunning apartment and to be honest we all fell in love with the place.

Cosy and relaxing, distinctive and unique, lovely location
Our family of four had a wonderful stay in this cosy and homely room. Everything in one large square open plan space, separated by a couple of cast iron pillars, each corner has its function. Everyone can spread out and still feel cosy regardless of which corner they are in. The owners live upstairs and are ever so friendly and helpful, we felt very welcome, with a few fun touches for the children as well. Everything worked, with equipment like the hob and oven being to a very high standard. The (blue) front door is literally a doorstep to Offa's Dyke path which passes along the street outside, and for cyclists there are several possible routes which are not too hilly or busy with traffic. With Kington being right on the border with Wales, there is stunningly beautiful if different landscapes on either side of the border: the gentle Herefordshire hills are a patchwork quilt of yellows and greens, while the more rugged side in Wales offers dramatically steep hills. During our stay we also enjoyed paddling and swimming in several local rivers, it really is a wonderful area!

A tranquil, comfortable stay in a lovingly restored cottage.
The whole process of booking, communication, directions to the property and key collection went very smoothly. Although one room, the accommodation is very spacious & indeed bigger than many apartments, with comfortable furniture. The kitchen is very well equipped, the WiFi excellent, the bed comfortable, cable TV and lots of books and games. The hosts were friendly but not intrusive. We would happily recommended the property to others.,

An absolute gem
Stayed here with two friends for a as we were attending a wedding in Shobden. What an absolute gem of a place. Very clean and comfortable. Well equipped. Delightful. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We left early to return home so missed being able to thank them. Will definitely return. Such a lovely part of the country and Kington was great.

We had a lovely two weeks in the Schoolroom. It was really comfortable and spacious. A real home from home. Every thing we needed. The kitchen was well equipped too. We went on some really lovely walks around the area. A lovely relaxing holiday.
