The Old School Guest House has three bedrooms, self-catering facilities in a  communal kitchen and a shared living/dining area. 

The Guest House offers a comfortable and relaxing stay for work and leisure guests, with some unique Wolverton décor.

Designated parking spaces are provided for all 3 guest rooms and the lower floor of the guest house is accessible to users with limited mobility. Please read our Accessibility Statement for further information.

There are three rooms in the guest house: The Railway Room (queen size bed, downstairs), The School Room (twin, 1st floor) and The Works Room (double, 1st floor). All rooms have their own bathrooms, but only The Works Room is ensuite. Your rooms come with fresh bedding and towels, as well as tea making stations.

The Guest House offers two communal areas: a cosy living room with a table for six, a comfy arm chair and plenty of reading material, as well as a kitchen including a large fridge/freezer, hob, oven, storage, toaster and microwave. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and store their own food, but are expected to leave everything clean for other visitors who might be staying in the house at the same time. A continental, help-yourself style breakfast of toast, jam, fruit, cereal and milk is provided as part of the booking.

Guests book online and receive information about access via email ahead of their stay. At the end of their visit, they return the key to a safe place, and the guest house team clean the room and change bedding and towels ahead of the next visitor. While there is a 24h number for emergencies, guests are encouraged to enjoy their stay independently and should not necessarily expect to meet a member of the Old School team. Check in is from 3pm onward and check out is by 10am.

We are committed to environmental sustainability, and much of the guest house has been designed with that mission in mind. We encourage guests to support our aims by using locally available public transport and products, minimising their waste and recycling, and considering their energy use. We are currently planning the installation of solar panels, and already have an electric car charging point, which is available to guests. You can read more about our ethos in our Green Policy.


The Railway Room is a queen size double room, located on the ground floor. It is the most accessible of the three rooms and has been designed to pay homage to Wolverton’s railway history. This is the only room which allows dogs.


The Old School Room includes two single beds, perfect for families with children. The room remembers the history of the guest house as a Victorian school and has some unique school inspired items of decoration.


The Works Room is the smallest of the three rooms, and includes a normal size double bed. This is the only room with a direct ensuite bathroom. It has been dedicated to the history of the Wolverton Railway Works, the longest running railway maintenance works in the World, now over 180 years old.
