This Is the Schoolroom
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. Author info Purchase options.
Description: The turbulent Thirties, and all across Europe cry the discordant voices of hunger and death, most notably in Spain, where a civil war threatens to destroy the country. Author biography: Nicholas Monsarrat was born in Liverpool and educated at Cambridge University, where he studied law. His career as a solicitor encountered a swift end when he decided to leave Liverpool for London, with a half-finished manuscript under his arm and only forty pounds in his pocket.
His first book to attract attention was the largely autobiographical 'This is the Schoolroom', which was concerned with the turbulent thirties, and a student at Cambridge who goes off to fight against the fascists in Spain only to discover that life itself is the real schoolroom.

His war experiences provided the framework for the novel 'HMS Marlborough will enter Harbour', which is one of his best known books, along with 'The Cruel Sea'. The latter was made into a classic film starring Jack Hawkins.
Established as a top name writer, Monsarrat's career concluded with 'The Master Mariner', a historical novel of epic proportions the final part of which was both finished using his notes and published posthumously. Arrival after 4pm.
