“Heaven on Earth”

person found this review helpful

if you want the best, you can get no better than The old school house. Many thanks to Rachel for her kindness to us, while we stayed in her wonderful house. It is very handy that the owners only live across the road, if you need anything they are on hand, but unless you need something you never see them.
The house is 5 star, it has everything you would ever want.

Thanks again for a great great house

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

This property is immaculately presented, and in a beautiful location, right by the sea front. We desperately needed a break, and this place really makes you feel aq though you have escaped city life. It's a 'home from home', with everything you could possibly need. We had our 5 month old with us, and the owner provided a travel cot and a high chair.

The Eden Project is minutes away by car. We only wished we had booked a longer break!

“Excellent Property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

5 * cottage with lovely views. Lovely log fire and well equipped kitchen. Games, books and CD's available. Good information booklet. Close to the Eden project and walkable down the hill to the beach. Private parking. The table was set for afternoon tea and cake from Rachel & chocolates on the pillows. Wi-Fi available. Would highly recommend.

“Beautiful light character cottage with lovely views and garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We really enjoyed our week here. The cottage is lovely and has all those useful touches that also make it very liveable (e.g enough storage, free shelves & hooks plus good instructions for everything). We had a very peaceful time enjoying the views with an open fire on a couple of nights. The nearby beach is great, as was Rachels cake...mmmm.

“Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This cottage is just wonderful. It's in such a lovely setting. It caters for all needs and to a very high standard. When we arrived after a gruelling drive we had been left a lovely cake and little chocolates under the pillows - which my son got very excited about. A lovely safe beach is literally minutes away which is very clean and we made very good use of it. There are so many positive things to say about this cottage and we certainly hope to return very soon. A big thank you Rachel for making our holiday one of the best we have ever had
