“Two Weeks in Paradise”
Reviewed 10 July 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We had a fantastic time at the Old School House and were really sad to come back home after our 2 week holiday. The cottage is very well equipped and in a stunning location with breathtaking views from every room. There is easily enough parking for at least 4 cars or even a small boat! The cottage provides a great base for walking and cycling, with the coastal paths and clay trails on your doorstep. St Austell is only a 5 minute drive away and has a 24 hour Tesco and Asda, as well as plenty of places to eat out. We would definitely recommend staying at the Old School House.

“Fantastic house with superb views”
Reviewed 7 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We stayed at the cottage in may and had a wonderful time,the owners are lovely and the house is located in a beautiful setting next to fields and a 5 minute walk to a lovely secluded beach.The view from the patio area is as stunning as the photos.
St Austell is a 5 minute drive away with a Tesco and Asda and lots of amenities.
Porthpean is a superb location for touring round Cornwall and the Eden project is just 10 minutes away.
