The property

In an ideal location for touring all of Cornwall as well as Dartmoor, this former school house dating back to the 1860s has been beautifully renovated and refurbished to a high standard to provide a wonderful holiday home.

As you enter The Old School House you will immediately feel at home going through the porch into the kitchen with a delightful conservatory overlooking the garden.

Through into the hallway which takes you to the light and airy dining room and the cosy sitting room both with magnificent high ceilings being a feature of the period which the house would have originated from.

There are four bedrooms here all different to give options for all the family, a master king-size double, a double, a twin and a single.

Outside an enclosed garden complete with garden furniture is a peaceful spot to relax and appreciate the far-reaching countryside views.

The garage here is converted to provide a games room and entertainment whatever the weather.

A short walk to the village will take you the local pub the Archer Arms, a community pub offering a choice of good food and local ales.

The village shop will provide you with all your everyday requirements.
