The Old School is a charming family residence with much character, originally the village School and now sympathetically converted to create an atmospheric living space.

Without doubt a particular feature of the property is the superb lounge with open vaulted ceiling having beamed accents. The original "minstrels gallery" has now been enclosed to form a bedroom at first floor level. The kitchen has a range of pine units and a useful utility room is provided which has a personal door directly to the attached garage. Also at ground floor level is the master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room. A cloakroom with wc lies off the inner hall. At first floor level there are three bedrooms including the aforementioned former "minstrels gallery" which is a further room of character also suitable for use as a study.

Externally the property has a good front driveway attached garage, enclosed car port to the other side and a mature rear garden.

The property enjoys frontage to Middlefield Road within the ever popular village of North Wheatley.

North Wheatley has a huge community spirit and is a popular village within the area which combined with its immediate sister village, South Wheatley, offers a variety of residential amenities.

There are two shops, a Post Office, an active pub, church, chapel, cricket field, tennis courts and village hall offering many club activities and social functions for those wishing to partake. see the village website

On the outskirts of the village are several farm shops and speciality butchers. The main shopping areas are Retford and Gainsborough although Sheffield, Doncaster, Newark, Lincoln and Nottingham are all within comfortable driving distance.

The village itself is by-passed by the A620 which links Retford to Gainsborough and Bawtry via the A631.

Retford is an attractive Georgian market town. The area in general is served by an excellent provision of communication links. Retford has a mainline railway station on the London to Edinburgh Intercity Link with King's Cross available in approximately 1½ hours. The A1M by-passes the town just to the west from which the wider motorway network is available. Air travel is feasible by convenient international airports of Doncaster Sheffield (Robin Hood) and Nottingham East Midlands.

The area boasts a fine range of leisure amenities including Clumber Park, Sherwood Forest and the Dukeries.

Educational Facilities
The village has its own primary school, North Wheatley Church of England Primary School (Ofsted No. 340213) which has smaller classes than normal and an active PTA which holds many fundraising activities (linked secondary school The Elizabethan Academy). The village is within the catchment area of the state schools of The Queen Elizabeth Academy (Ofsted No. 359326) and Retford Oaks (Ofsted No. 360575). There are a broad range of independent schools in the area including Orchard Nursery School, Ranby House School, Worksop College and Hill House Doncaster.

Leaving Retford eastbound on the A620 signposted Gainsborough proceed through the villages of Welham and Clarborough.
