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.

Perfect retreat after a hard day's holidaymaking

  • 5 of 5

School View Cottage was a perfect place to stay for a week's holiday in Cornwall. The Cottage was very well appointed and comfortable. The children loved the bunk beds with the quirky steps up to the top bunk. We loved the quirky nature of the house - the children spent ages the first night discovering new parts of the house! Everything was provided for in terms of facilities and the bottle of wine provided by Mr Jackson on the first night was very welcome after our long journey. Mr Jackson himself was incredibly solicitous and did everything to ensure that we had everything we needed, both before the visit and on the night we arrived. He answered all our questions in a very timely fashion and the information he provided was very useful. We were also very grateful for the maps he left in the cottage, which helped us plan our days out. The cottage was ideally situated to visit most places in Cornwall and was a perfect place to come back to after a day on the beach or sightseeing. The village was lovely and quiet, which enabled us to wind down after our exertions. The village itself was beautiful, really chocolate-boxy, and the people were very friendly. The pub was very friendly and the food was excellent!! Overall, I cannot recommend School View Cottage highly enough to anyone wanted the perfect base for a week's holiday. It was amazing!

Wonderful relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this property over the New Year and it was an amazing find. The hosts were really friendly, contacting us on our arrival to make sure all was well. The cottage was clean, warm, very well equipped and homely. The open fire in the dinning room was a real treat as was the bottle of wine provided for our arrival. The bedrooms were good and although the bunk bed room is compact, the built in steps to the upper bunk only add to the character of the place. The village is quiet and picturesque, with a village shop which was well stocked for the essentials and had good opening hours. The local pub, the St Tudy Inn, is well worth a visit. We loved the area and enjoyed walks from the property as well as along the beautiful coast. We would recommend this for a family holiday or for a couple wanting to get away for a while. We will certainly be returning!

A lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in School View many times on and off. It is a lovely cosy old cottage with a nice garden set in a quiet corner of a beautiful village. St Tudy has a buzzing community shop and a good pub and it's position is ideal for exploring all the North Cornish coast from Padstow to Boscastle.

Wonderful Cornish Cottage

  • 5 of 5

School View was a well maintained, clean and extremely comfortable property with the added bonus of two fireplaces (one in the living room and the other in the dining room) which was much appreciated on those cold December evenings. The property was very well equipped, especially the downstairs area. A lovely location, in this pretty village and an ideal place to stay for families. There was a nice touch from the owners, a bottle of wine on arrival to sit by the fire with! We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who likes to stay in 'a home away from home'.
