The Old Primary School Cottage, Ludgven, Cornwall

Old Primary School Cottage Ludgven
We were most impressed with this accommodation. The welcome greeting and familiarisation tour of the cottage was great and the accommodation was fine. Clean and well maintained. Views from the windows included a field of flowers immediately adjacent and Saint Michael's Mount in the distance. The local village is lovely with a beautiful church and a nice pub. Shopping is available locally or a short drive to the outskirts of Penzance gives you access to the main supermarkets. Parking at the cottage is spacious and the garden, with lounge furniture provided, is a good spot for relaxing and right next to the cottage.
We do not hesitate to recommend this accommodation for a couple looking for peace and quiet and a relaxing holiday. Wi Fi was a nice advantage too!
Overall impression....great accommodation

Perfect stay, loved it and would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the cottage, it was like home from home, everything we needed was provided. The cottage was ideally located for both countryside and the coast, walking to the nearest beach Marazion was easy. We also walked to St.Ives which was a little more challenging, due to the lack of signs. It is very easy to explore the area so makes an ideal base.
Steve and Stacey have the lovliest location and you are completely left alone to use the property and it's garden, which we did on one day, chilling in the sun.
A perfect holiday for us, and the first in the UK for a very long time, so it was ideal and would highly recommend to others. Enjoy, we will be back one day to enjoy again, I'm sure!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderfully located and beautifully converted cottage. The views are exceptional and it is next door to a Marazion - one of the most impressive sea side places in Cornwall. We can't recommend it highly enough.
Thank you Steve and Stacey for a really exceptional break.
