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.

Why Stacey and Steve Halfyard chose South West Cornwall

The atmosphere of the area ... Very relaxing and quiet location (nestled between 2 fields, opposite allotments), views of the sea and surrounding countryside. Convenient for A30 which means that everywhere in West Cornwall is on the doorstep ie St Ives, Penzance, Marazions and all the lovely little villages.. Near to so may lovely places! You can see St Michael's Mount from the house and village,

The Welcoming feel feel of the accomodation .. Our previous guests comment that our accomodation is like a 'home from home' because we like to think we have thought of everythng you need during your stay ie Welcome Pack of local paper, bicuits tea, coffee, milk, flowers all kitchen requirements including flowers, washing up liquid, kitchen towels etc. Idyllic...

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation was fabulous, great views and very well placed for day trips.

We visited from here - with ease - Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, St Ives, Padstow, Lands End St Agnes, Polperro, Menack Theatre, Michael's Mount, Hayle, Penzance and Marazion. Pub up the hill good food and had a look in the church. Local Spar down the hill in Crowlas handy for bits.

On the whole a great week and we had great weather, would highly recommend a stay here.

Lovely cottage and a great stay

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage with everything we needed and a welcome pack of biscuits, tea, coffee and milk so after a 6 hour drive this was appreciated. Cottage has great views and lovely garden. The white Hart is a great local pub with good food and friendly locals. Ideally you need a car to get around as it is in quite a low key area, but great for walks to st micheals mount etc . There is a bus to St Ives if you want a bit more buzz, local towns Mousehole and Newlyn worth a visit too.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The property is well located, well kitted out and offers a view of St Micheal's Mount from the kitchen sink;weather permitting. We didn't use the garden but it looked lovely and has loungers and a barbecue available. We did appreciate the fast Wifi and our hosts kindly sending on a forgotten item.

We know the area reasonably well as fairly frequent visitors and did feel this accommodation rated among the best.
