We stayed here for two nights over New Years Eve having been invited to celebrate with friends who live in the area. The Schoolhouse totally exceeded our expectations; the accommodation, the hospitality and the breakfast were all outstanding and John and Penny were wonderful hosts. We arrived later than expected on New years eve and John kindly waited in to... More

From booking our stay to arriving was a personal and professional experience. Our hosts were friendly and full of local knowledge. The room we stayed in was breathtaking and comfortable. The breakfast lacked for nothing and the views from bedroom to the kitchen diner were faultless. We will be back and intend to bring the rest of our family so... More

We were going to a wedding at Polhawn Fort and stayed for 2 nights. We stayed in the master bedroom which has a 4 poster bed which was really comfy. The room was a good size and very clean. The best part was the little balcony looking directly out to the sea. John and Penny are excellent hosts too. Very... More

Stayed here for a short break with family. It was really lovely. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the owners were incredibly kind and chatty. Breakfast was to die for. Home cooked muesli, fruit salad and yoghurt followed by full English (looked great) or any cooked of your choice. I had smoked salmon and scrambled egg which was... More

The only thing better than the hospitality was the ever changing views from the balcony and breakfast table. It felt like the perfect balance between staying with a friend (in an amazing setting) and a romantic b&b We stayed in the master room which was cozy clean had the most beautiful views over the beaches and sea. And you are... More

We've just returned from a 4 night stay at The Old School House B & B - this being our third visit to Cawsand. The reviews on here really do say it all but this is what we think. As a location this has got to be one of loveliest places to visit in Cornwall - luckily enough not many... More

All the other reviews are spot on and very well deserved for John and Penny! Relaxing in the morning eating a delicious breakfast, chatting away to John and watching the waves crashing around the Clock Tower just made our weekend even more special. Can't wait for another reason to go!

We stayed here two nights. We arrived late at night, which wasn't a problem. Breakfast was amazing. View was amazing. They even drove us down to Polhawn Fort to collect our car the day after the wedding. I would seriously recommend staying here.

Couldn't have asked for a better visit - the room was great, the location great, the breakfast great and John and Penny made us feel right at home. The family room with 2 small kids was perfect.

This is a great B&B in all respects. The food, hospitality, location, standard of rooms, and views were all not just good but outstanding. I would definitely recommend it. My only negative was that in the family room there were no drawers for clothes and just three hangers in a cupboard which we had to move a chair to open... More
