The Old School House dates back to 1836 and was used as the Brushford village school until a new schoolroom was built in 1895 then the Old School House became the Headmaster's home. Adjacent to the property is the village church which dates back to the 13th century. Old School House has been renovated and redecorated to a very high standard, retaining many original features including a small bread oven in the current dining room fireplace. A surprisingly spacious cottage, Old School House has a light and airy feel, and enjoys pretty views to the surrounding countryside.

An HD TV, DVD player and iPod docking station/speakers are situated in the sitting room. Wifi is avialable throughout the property. Each bedroom has a hair dryer and Roberts radio. A boot rack, umbrellas and dog bowls are kept in the Boot Room, usually the main entrance and exit to the cottage in day to day use. Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. The cottage benefits from oil-fired central heating and both the sitting room and dining room feature wood-burning stoves. A basket of logs and kindling will be left in autumn & winter for the wood burning stoves to get your started, further supplies can be purchased locally. Egyptian cotton bed linen and thick white towels are provided for each guest plus hand towels and bath mats for each bathroom. Tea, coffee, milk, sugar will be provided for your arrival, as will all necessary bathroom and kitchen materials such as J-cloths, loo rolls, washing up liquid, etc. Up to 2 dogs are allowed on request for an additional charge of £15 to cover cleaning costs.
