Visit Devon and stay in our beautifully situated Old School on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Built in 1875 The Old School retains plenty of character together with its original bell tower and internal wooden beams. 

Guests have a choice of large double bedrooms with king size beds, en-suites or private shower room, complementary goodies, FREE HIGH SPEED internet access (Wi-Fi). Car parking is complementary (no need to reserve). We also have a secure lock up for bicycles if required. 

The picturesque village of Horrabridge straddles the River Walkham and has two pubs, village store/post office and more. Nearby we have a wealth of National Trust properties and great cycling and walking tracks.

The Old School is ideally situated for exploring Devon and Cornwall. Whether you are here on business or for pleasure, we will strive to ensure that you feel at home, and make your visit as memorable for you as possible. Now in our tenth year, Maxine has a wealth of useful tips for things to do and places to see.

Breakfast 

Quite possibly the best and tastiest breakfast in the whole of the Southwest! Kick start your day with fresh filtered coffee or tea (including infusions) and a full English breakfast or whatever variation you like! We have a wide selection of cooked breakfasts so spoil yourself! 

Our fully serviced dining room means no need to help yourself. Fresh milk, hot drinks, juices and toast are delivered to your table by your host Maxine. All our cereals are individually wrapped and plenty of variety to choose from. We do not use plastic containers! Your cooked breakfast will come on a hot plate! 

We go the extra mile and make our bread every day - it makes the most wonderful crispy toast and is ever so light, and absolutely delicious with our homemade marmalade and conserves. 

Our Bacon is dry cured in the school kitchen by Chris using Cornish sea salt. Once cured the bacon is hand carved. Our black pepper sausages come from the award winning Artisan butcher, Howells of Tavistock. Eggs are free range and you can have them cooked anyway you like. Try our light and fluffy English Omelettes or poached eggs. Tomatoes are freshly picked from the garden in season. 

As an option we also serve fried bread, black pudding, hogs pudding, hash browns, smoked haddock and Heinz baked beans – but only on request (well not everyone likes them)! So please just ask - if we have it, you can have it! 

As ever, all items are subject to availability and the seasons (and the weather). Please advise us in advance of any dietary concerns or requirements. 

NOTE: We do NOT use MICROWAVE OVENS (not for 20+ years)! How many B&B owners can say that?
