|Built in 1815, to replace the original old
thatched school, dating back to 1651 the new school house
accommodated 120 scholars, for the local village children and
gentry. The Old School House is now a small, traditional and welcoming family
bed and breakfast with 2 guest rooms.
The Old School House B&B is situated in the vibrant village of Colinton,
about 3 minutes drive from the City Bypass [A720] and about 15
minutes drive from Edinburgh Airport. The extensive bus
service available from Colinton includes Lothian Buses route
number 10, 16 and 45 which run to Edinburgh City Centre on a
regular basis. There is also unrestricted and free street parking very close to the B&B.
Within the village of Colinton, there are three restaurants two shops and
two traditional village pubs.
Our guests are invariably very pleased with the delicious
freshly prepared breakfast. A third guest can be accommodated
in each room by arrangement.
|"My wife and I stayed here recently having travelled to
Edinburgh for a long weekend for my wife's birthday. We chose
the Old School House based on other peoples testimonials and
were certainly not disappointed.
Sandra the owner, is a most
friendly and efficient hostess. The house is lovely, as is the
setting, and the room we had was excellent. The food choice
was also excellent and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.
Easy access to the city centre, a superb local village and
amenities, countryside right on the doorstep, means that this
is a place that we would not hesitate to recommend or to use
again at some future date.
Thank you for making our stay so
pleasurable! Vance Whittall, UK"
