Boyne Arms

Welcome to The Old School House Holiday Cottages – we are a locally owned complex of three, recently refurbished, holiday cottages centred around the old School House in the rural hamlet of Burwarton in the heart of the Shropshire Hills.

Located in the village at the base of the Brown Clee hill and in walking distance of our own pub and restaurant, The Boyne Arms, we are ideally located for that short break or longer holiday in the countryside. There are many walks from the village and plenty of things to do in the wider Shropshire area. Between our pub accommodation and self catering cottages we can accommodate up to 24 people.
