Just had the most amazing holiday at the old school house. It ended up just being 5 of us as some of our party where unable to come at the last minute but even if they had we would have had more than ample room. Such a beautiful, well equipped, big but cosy/homely place to stay, in such a location that you can discover all that Pembrokeshire has to offer, with ease. And then the icing on the cake is the pump on the green pub literally just across the road, with its friendly locals and good food.

Perfect family holiday
We where a family of 8 with 2 dogs and this place was perfect to accommodate all of us. Very spacious and beautifully decorated and in keeping with natural beauty of the School House, we very much enjoyed reading some of the extracts written by the Head over the years when it was a school. The garden was perfect for cups of tea in the sun whilst watching the bees and smelling the lavender. The place is a quiet village and very friendly, with a park and green next to the property.The house was very well equipped and the host was very good at communicating, we highly recommend this charming place to stay.

Firstly, the pictures of the School House do not do it justice! A beautifully converted building with more space than you can imagine for a party of 8 - my cousins and I were even able to dedicate the mezzanine level solely to yoga sessions, without the space being missed by the rest!! As a group, we spent most evenings cooking and eating together (every utensil, pot and pan imaginable are provided), then lounging around the wood burner with the drinks and laughter flowing, plotting how we could make the school house our own!!! I particularly enjoyed reading up on a little bit of history in the School House clippings folder - a brilliant touch. Would really recommend the pub across the road for a meal, very friendly atmosphere and although there were only two veggie options on the menu, the one that I ordered was delicious and we were provided with complimentary vegetables for the table, which is always a bonus!! We did not explore the village much unfortunately, but it was a very quiet setting. Further afield, the house is a short drive to Haverfordwest and Pembroke Docks, plus several beaches (we visited Freshwater West and Broadsands) walking trails (Stackpole and the Preselis), so is great for getting it and about in the days! As a group we all agreed, without a doubt, that we would stay here again based on the size, location and price. Our one and only qualm was that the water seemed to only runs hot early in the morning and we're a family of keen hikers... so trying to shower in the evening in a cold shower wasn't fun. Apart from that, 10 out of 10, and thank you to the owner's for providing so much to enable our stay to be so wonderful!!

This is a great place to stay with friends or family. There is plenty of room and the facilities are superb. The wood burner makes it a cosy stay for colder times of the year and the courtyard must be fab in the warmer months. Spitall is located near Haverfordwest and central to many of attractions in Pembrokeshire. I thoroughly recommend The School House.

School House is an absolutely stunning property. It is really well equipped and furnished. The house was well decorated and immaculate throughout. The whole family were really impressed and enjoyed the stay. I don't think the photos do the property justice, it's not until you get there that you realise how big it is!
