Within the village there are three Restaurants two shops and two traditional Village Pubs. Unrestricted street parking is very close by. The City By pass is about 3 minutes drive and the Airport is about 15 minutes drive away. Our guests are invariably very pleased with the delicious freshly prepared breakfast A third guest can be accommodated in each room. Testimonial My wife and I stayed here recently having travelled to Edinburgh for a long weekend for my wife's birthday. We chose the Old School House based on other peoples testimonials and were certainly not disappointed. Sandra the owner, is a most friendly and efficient hostess. The house is lovely, as is the setting, and the room we had was excellent. The food choice was also excellent and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Easy access to the city centre, a superb local village and amenities, countryside right on the doorstep, means that this is a place that we would not hesitate to recommend or to use again at some future date. Thank you for making our stay so pleasurable!
