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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

A very pleasant location

A very pleasant, characteristic, quiet location with a lot of space in- and outside. A beautiful view nearby at St. Michael's Mount. And a lot to do just in the surroundings.

Spacious and brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely quirky property with a light and airy open plan living room and kitchen with a far reaching view out over countryside. Great location just a few miles from St ives, Penzance, lands end, Mousehole, Porthcurno etc. Only minor downside was lack of washing machine with a toddler, but we hand washed when we needed to and i expect the owners would have happily helped had i asked. If you're looking for a roomy, clean, characterful place to stay with gardens and in a great location this is it!

Wonderful holiday!

We spent two weeks at this great apartment and the beautiful Cornwall. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The owners were very nice and helpful. The location of the "Old Primary School" is very suitable for exploring West Cornwall. Very recommendable, we will be back one day!
