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, welcoming family bed and breakfast. We re situated in the vibrant village of Colinton, only a few minutes drive from the City Bypass, A720. The extensive bus service available from Colinton includes Lothian buses route numbers 10, 16 and 45 which run to the City Centre on a regular basis. /p p Within the village there are three Restaurants two shops and two traditional Village Pubs. /p p Unrestricted street parking is very close by. The City By pass is about 3 minutes drive and the Airport is about 15 minutes drive away. /p p Our guests are invariably very pleased with the delicious freshly prepared breakfast. /p p A third guest can be accommodated in each room. /p p Testimonial: 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, British (06 October 09) /p p We serve a full breakfast in the dining room overlooking our garden.
