About the property

The Old Primary School

The Old Primary School was built in approx. 1875 and is a fine example of a Victorian school house. It was converted for holiday accommodation in 2000 and the décor, facilities and services have been updated regularly.

Both the Cottage and Apartment have dedicated private parking and private entrances. There is separate wi-fi networks for each property, which are both strong and fast. Each property enjoys fantastic views and there is a very large shared garden with picnic tables, bbq, loungers and other amenities. Guests remark on the great location of the accommodation, with easy access to all the spectacular sights around the area. The building stands alone and surrounded by fields, but is only 200m from the village. The village is very picturesque and has an old Norman church and the village pub serves very good food and drink. Approximately 800m down the road is the village of Crowlas which has a convenience store and pub. All bedding and towels are provided, and the kitchens are well fitted out. Stacey and Steve have provided just about everything you would need for a great stay.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The Old Primary School is very centrally located to explore Cornwall. Views of St Michael’s Mount from the kitchen window are stunning. The cottage had everything we needed to make our stay extremely comfortable, and the little extras, flowers, chocolate biscuits & local paper, were a pleasant surprise.

Comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views over the village and towards St Michaels Mount. Very well positioned and provided great access to St Ives, Penzance, Portleven, Lands end and the Lizard to name but a few. The cottage is extremely well equipped and we were not wanting for anything.

A lovely break

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very well furnished and comfortable, making it a very cosy home from home. Stacey and Steve had been thoughtful in leaving lots of helpful information and tips available. The location of the cottage was ideal and we had great days out to St Ives, St Agnes, Penzance, Mousehole, Bodmin etc. I'd highly recommend.

The propert is perfect in every way. Spotlessly clean and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in this outstanding little cottage. Sitting with the door open late into the evening with magnificent views, what more can you ask for. The cottage has everything you need and is in an ideal location. We thought a visit to this area would be a one off as it's a long drive for us but we enjoyed it so much we can't wait to go again next year.
