The best B and B in Britain

This is quite simply by far the best b and b, we have ever experienced.

Cozy, welcoming, immaculately clean and the best breakfast you could wish for. Just off the A1 in a nice quiet village with a pub, which serves good food just a short walk away. Above all, Yvonne and Steve Todd are charming hosts and can't do enough for you.

We will certainly be going there again!

Friendly welcome and great breakfast.

Enjoyable and friendly

From our first meeting as strangers, nothing was too much trouble for yvonne and steve, they really made us feel welcome right from the start.

The accommodation was immaculate, and breakfasts cooked to perfection. There is a guests lounge and a first floor balcony just outside the bedrooms where we could pass the time of day with the other guests (plus yvonne and steve), and so when we departed we all left as friends.

Superb !

We had two nights at the Old School and wished we'd booked for much longer.

Yvonne and Steve are just the nicest people you could wish to meet and they made us so welcome, we felt like we'd known them for years. The food was perfect, the accommodation super comfy and the house and garden are just so interesting. We can't wait to go back in the summer and see the garden in all it's glory.

Old School, Newton on the Moor

The Old School B&B is one of the very best we have stayed.

The owners, Yvonne and Steve made us feel very welcome on our arrival. The room we had was excellent with all the facilities you need. It was very evident they had gone to great trouble to think of everything a guest would need for their stay. Breakfast was freshly cooked and generous and prepared from locally sourced producers. The location is very attractive and peaceful with a beautiful garden. It is easy to access from the A1 and the local pub/restaurant serves excellent food and is only 5 minutes walk from the Old School. In short it is a superb place to stay and relax. I would recommend it to anyone without reservation as it is one of the very best.

We arrived to a warm welcome from Yvonne and Steve given a tour of the school then tea and cake which after a very long drive was very much appreciated.

Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. We most certainly will be going back.
