The Camel trail is two miles away and is a disused railway line ideal for cycling, You can hire bicycles in Wadebridge which is at the start of the Camel estuary. The estuary itself is often home to dolphins. Details are on the cottage notice board.

The well stocked village village shop is 600 yards away. Pick your own strawberries and raspberries at Pencarrow only five minutes away and then buy your Cornish clotted cream in the shop and have a cream tea on the patio. Stroll round to the village pub which is excellent and have a drink or some food. There is virtually no traffic on the way to the pub 650 yards away. The nearest beach is 35 minutes away, while the South Coast beaches can be reached in less than 1 hour.

This property is not only perfect for summer holidays but is cosy and warm at Christmas and/or half term holidays. It is well suited for families.

We didnt want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful month at School View Cottage in September. The cottage has all of the charm we were hoping for, but also the conveniences of a large modern kitchen. The garden is beautiful and extremely well kept making it a great place to enjoy on the rather frequent sunny days that we had.

The cottage was only outdone by the welcoming people of the village. The day of our arrival we went over to the church and were invited in to watch the ringing of the bells in the tower - no mechanized systems here, still a very manual process in St Tudy. Our kids attended activities in the town and were even invited to a birthday party.

There were plenty of sights and activities in the area to keep us occupied for the month including great beaches, historic seaports, manor houses and gardens. Also the local pub is only a couple blocks away with great food and quite popular (make a reservation a few days in advance if going on Sunday.)

After a month we truly didn't want to leave - highly recommended.

Post-Christmas break in St Tudy.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely break at School View Cottage in the delightful village of St Tudy. The cottage is spacious with two sitting areas . It is cosy,comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. Some of the furnishings are a little dated but that didn't detract from generally cosy feel of the cottage. The weather outside was miserable for much of our stay but we were very cosy in front of the roaring fires. The village is friendly and the excellent local pub/restaurant just a short walk away. St Tudy is well located for the North Cornwall coast and for walking on Bodmin Moor.We would definitely recommmend School View Cottage.

Lovely home away from home

What a wonderful cottage. Edward and Marion's attention to detail was outstanding, and the wine and milk provided were a lovely touch, and much appreciated.

Great house just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with the accommodation. There is a field opposite with a playground so great for kids to run around in. We had a great holiday, the pub down the road was fantastic. Hopefully we will come back and stay another time.

Wonderful cottage in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at School View on quite a few occasions over the years and love it! A beautiful well equipped cottage in a lovely peaceful friendly village- great base for exploring North Cornwall. A welcome addition of the new double bed in the main bedroom which we found very comfortable! The wine and milk in the fridge was appreciated! Had a great week and hope to be back again soon.
