Mrs Todd May 2017
A wonderful cottage and friendly owners next door. Everything one could wish for provided, including fun games for the old school playground outside your front door. Very clean and modern, warm and comfortable. Highly recommended!
Mr Purvis April 2017
This is a very comfortable Old School House with lots of local information provided, and historical photos etc of when it was a school house. There is a secure yard for young families and outdoor play equipment. The pub practically next door serves excellent meals and the locals are welcoming. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and we would definitely recommend this accommodation. Wonderful walk-in shower as well! A home from home and we wish we could have stayed longer.

Our return trip to The Old School Gables provided us with the relaxing holiday we were looking for. The welcome received from Mr and Mrs Davis was brilliant and they reacted quickly to resolve a problem which cropped up with a light fitting - couldn't have asked for more
Mr Carver March 2016
Well appointed, clean and comfortable, situated in a nice quiet village with busy yet quiet contry pub in close walking distance...recommended.
Mrs Keyte December 2015
Limited headroom in bedrooms in places but added to the interest of the building and its conversion from a village school.Owners very friendly and helpful. A very pleasant area and would certainly recommend.
Mrs Broughton November 2015
It is impossible to be critical about this property, it is just perfect. Clean, warm, well equipped and the owners on hand next door and most approachable if anything is needed. Well located for walking, sightseeing and shopping. Excellent.

Cosy place, excellent for our little trio.

Mrs Waddell July 2015
Lovely peaceful location. Very limited mobile signal but that turned out to be a good thing! No-one from work could call and disturb our peace. Very clean. The kitchen was so well equipped. Excellent location for visiting tourist attractions in Dorset.

Mrs Wood May 2014
A lovely place to stay, we thought it was excellent all round - mainly due to the care and attention to detail the owners have taken with everything.
Mr Levi May 2014
Wonderfully secluded and quiet, not a sound to be heard but the birds. Very friendly owners living next door, very accommodating and nothing too much trouble for them. Would like to visit again.
Mrs Merton September 2013
We were spot on with our choice. The pub next door was excellent for food & great people too. The cottage owners were great too. If you need to use your mobile phone a lot then this village is not for you....no reception anywhere. The WiFi signal tripped out & we worked out that if we took our devices to the bathrooms then we got reconnected, so not really a problem in the long run. We would love to go back there as it is a good base & the cottage was perfect.
Mr Crane July 2013
What a marvelous place to stay for a holiday. Immaculately presented and most comfortable. More things in kitchen to cook and prepare food in than any other Classic Cottage we have stayed in. Bottle of wine and biscuits on arrival and the 'Headmaster' and 'Headmistress' could not have been kinder!
Ms Vince May 2013
The location was near some friends. Of the cottages in the area this seemed to look the nicest and have the level of accommodation we required. No obvious problems
Mrs Digby May 2013
Old School Gables is the best equipped cottage I have ever stayed in. Classic Cottage properties are always clean and well cared for, which is why I only choose them when I go on holiday, but this property had everything you would wish for in a holiday cottage and more besides. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable country break.
Mrs Ankers May 2013
I would re book, main thing was it was so clean. Everything well equipped, bedding etc spotless. Bedroom 2 bit snug for 2 adults but if you know this don't let it put you off.
