About the Owner

Owner Jane Humby:

We have owned the Old School House since the mid 1980's. When we bought the house it was only a shell, four walls, no floor and no roof!

Over the last twenty five years we have put a lot of time and dedication into bringing the house back to its former glory.

We have had many lovely family holidays at The School House and have great memories throughout the years.

We hope that your holiday holds as many special memories.

Wonderful cottage, wonderful location !

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults and 2 toddlers) had a lovely holiday, the cottage is great , a home away from home. It is very well stocked and is equipped with all you might need.

The old school house is located on the outskirts of Mawgan ( a great location and good place to base yourself whilst staying on the Lizard peninsula as only minutes from beach, helford river, seal sanctuary and many other attractions) but only minutes walk from the village shop and pub!

Jane the owner, was very friendly and helpful, and emailed us a list of good places to go, advice about pre booking certain pubs etc....

Needless to say we will be back.....

Facilities

From the Owner

The house is conveniently located only a five mile drive away from Helston, a famous small market town. Helston can provide you with all your day to day grocery needs with two large supermarkets, petrol stations and small independent shops. Back in Mawgan the pace of life is much slower, you will see the pheasant every morning in the garden saying hello. The house offers very spacious accommodation spread over two living rooms and a large kitchen on the ground floor. The secluded garden offers a huge expanse of beautifully kept lawns and the woods are a great place for kids and adults alike to have a great adventure.
