Hello Jan and Barry,

Just a belated thank you for looking after us so well on our recent visit and making the stay so enjoyable—despite the excessive heat!

Attached is a picture of the four-legged member of the family keeping us company while we cooled down in the garden. Hope you are both well.

Best wishes

– Jim and Val


I chose to stay at The Old School with my maid of honour the evening before my wedding and the night of my wedding with my husband.

The old school is in a fantastic location for travelling to both Newark and Southwell and jan and Barry are very welcoming.

The breakfast we received was fantastic, the rooms were very clean and the atmosphere was very relaxed.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this bed and breakfast to all of my friends and family

Kind regards

– Becky Derbyshire

Dear Jan and Barry

Thanks so much for posting the phone charger. Osa and myself enjoyed our stay, and if you should ever be in our part of the world, you would be most welcome.

To Jan & Barry

Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed my stay with you this weekend. The accommodation was beautiful and you made me very welcome.

Thank you so much,

Dearest Jan and Barry

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you again for a lovely stay with you. You are always so warm and welcoming and your place has certainly become our home away from home in England – we wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else! Hope to see you again soon.

Much love and blessings

– Kathy
