The Old School was built in 1908 and lovingly restored into a unique B&B in 2000. It has the high ceilings and classic architecture of Victorian times and is set up for those who wish to experience a country stay. Romantic getaway or family holiday.
We have all been to or even taught in a school but here you can actually sleep in "class" without going on report!
The B&B is a separate and full private building entirely for the guests use. It has its own kitchen and ensuite and parking is directly out front.
I live in a separate cottage located on the same property - in fact just next to the school building and normally I am at home.
I am in a rural location 7km off the Princes Highway, so I am surrounded by farm land with cows, sheep, horses etc including my neighbours geese.
To get to and sight-see around my place you definitely will need a car.
Check in is after 2pm. Late check in (after 8.30pm) only with prior arrangement.
Check out is by 11am.
The B&B is totally dog friendly with a secure yard located outside the kitchen which also has table, chairs, sun umbrella and bbq
Disponible para huéspedes
My property is just under 2 acres & I am happy for my guests to wander around and enjoy the space. It can be very entertaining just spending time watching the antics of my chickens as they free range all over the property. Also, the B&B is dog friendly so if you are travelling with your dog there is plenty of space for them to have a good run after being cooped up in a car.
Atención a los huéspedes
As the B&B is a separate building to my cottage, my guests can have complete privacy to relax & enjoy the rural atmosphere. However, I am more than happy to have a chat and advise what to go/see locally.
Otros aspectos destacables
The B&B is fully self contained and all linen/towels are provided. Breakfast provisions will be provided which include cereal, juice, eggs bacon tomatoes mushrooms & a homemade loaf of bread.
Needless to say to treat with respect for the building and furnishings. I am dog friendly and do allow them in the building but not on the bed etc. The B&B is totally non smoking within the building.
I simply love living in a rural area. It is a joy to watch the birdlife and see nature close up, plus it is a bonus to have my gorgeous chickens and vegetable garden. I believe that we seem to be taking life so seriously and missing out on the fun and joy of being alive - so to have a Kookaburra land on my house-yard fence and sing hello makes me smile.
