We really enjoyed exploring the beautiful beaches and coves, particularly Praa Sands, Mullion Cove, Kyance Cove, Godrevy, Sennon Cove. Just loved the atmosphere of the old towns and villages. Two excellent meals at The Whit Hart Inn.

We loved our time at The Old Primary School. Thank you kindly. The views are great.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed one week with our family in the old primary school and it was much nicer than the description. We were really impressed of this nice location. The owner are very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and well-maintained. We had a really good time and would like to stay there any time again.
