My wife and I loved this converted school room. Spacious main area with purpose-built little bathroom incorporated in one corner of the large room.
We especially loved the 2 large sofas where we could both stretch out luxuriously after a stiff walk in the surrounding hills.
The place was beautifully warm.
Kitchen generally well equipped, though a few half pint tumblers would have come in useful (there were only small or pint sized glasses).
This is not a criticism, but the property only having one room means the first person up in the morning has to be very considerate about putting the light on if the other person is still fast asleep.
As a suggestion, curtaining off the whole bed area would make all the difference.
Owners very friendly.
Kington had loads of character and charm, and the school room was brilliantly located for wandering into town within 2 mins.
Would definitely consider returning.
Comfort and good value
A change of pace

The School Room was a pleasant,comfortable and very well-equipped place to stay. It was very close to shops, restaurants and pubs in Kington. Kington itself is a good centre for exploring Herefordshire and Mid-Wales, with good walks nearby. A very peaceful and relaxing place and a great change from our usual city life.
A very comfortable and clean place to stay.
