Who knew schools could look this good! Lovingly renovated (and documented by George Clarke on his ‘Restoration Man’ series), Old School is a striking 150 year old renovation with green technology incorporated from top to bottom. With standout modern elements – who wouldn’t enjoy a soak in the colour-changing jacuzzi bath, a blast under the rainfall shower, or delight in whipping up a meal in the spacious kitchen with all mod-cons? – combined with picture-perfect traditional look, this property has something for everyone. Relax on the balcony in the evening, overlooking the beautiful large garden and fruit trees, and enjoy a glorious night’s sleep in the king-size bed in the master bedroom.

From underfloor heating powered by ground and air source heat pumps and biomass boilers, rainwater harvesting, and green roofs, it’s also perfectly designed for a planet-friendly holiday.

The village of Pencader is located in the heart of West Wales. Perfect for wildlife-filled woodland and countryside walks, or head to the coast and enjoy the delights of Cardigan Bay and the magnificent Pembrokeshire coastline.

Less than 20 miles away is the fantastic New Quay, with its sandy beaches, pier, watersports, boat trips and famous bottlenose dolphins. The wonderful villages of Aberporth, Tresaith and Llangrannog are also within 20 miles, with beautiful beaches and seaside pubs with great views.

Old School is an excellent choice for an unforgettable stay.
