The Old School in Little Compton has just been named the No1 B&B in both the UK and Europe in Tripadvisor's 2018 Travellers' Choice Awards - unfortunately (rather like football!) they were beaten to the world title by the Brazilians - No4 in the World! Here's just a few of the reasons they were so highly rated...

The sitting room

The building
A beautiful old Victorian schoolhouse built in 1854 and wonderfully converted into a very nice home indeed with beautiful private sitting rooms for guests to enjoy.

The bedrooms
Four en-suite bedrooms kitted out to really pamper you: super-king size beds; the finest Egyptian bed linen; beautifully snuggly duvets; tea & coffee making; a little fridge to put milk (or tonic or wine!) in; a flat screen TV (with a selection of films to enjoy); fresh flowers; snug bathrobes; and indulgent toiletries. There's plenty more too but you get the picture - basically everything you'll need for a wonderful stay!

The service
What really sets the Old School apart though is the level of service you'll get. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble for the hosts, Wendy and John. They'll help organise almost anything you can think of: activities like cycling, walking and horse riding; everything form classic car hire to theatre tickets, from tours to retail therapy. 

The food
Rumour has it that Wendy's a dab hand in the kitchen - she's a member of the Guild of Food Writers - and (the only downside to a stay here) you're unlikely to weigh less when you leave than you did on arrival - unless, of course, you take full advantage of all those activities they'll help you plan!

Breakfast is one of those awful moments when you have to choose but really want everything: fresh fruits, compotes, juices, cereals, porridge or granola, eggs cooked virtually anyway you can think of, bacon, sausage, smoked salmon, mushrooms, tomatoes - then what are you going to drink with it? Freshly ground coffee (decaffeinated if you must) and teas over ever conceivable type.

With a bit of notice they'll prepare hampers (rugs and brollies included!) or do supper trays for you - maybe smoked salmon sandwiches and a creme brulee - or if you're staying with friends they'll even cook a four course dinner for you!

In short they'll bend over backwards to make your stay a stay to remember!
