We arrived mid-afternoon having been well briefed by Steve, the owner, on how to get there. The cottage is just part of the old school house but has its own private entrance. The owners live in another part of this beautiful old building, but with its thick stone walls you’re not aware of anyone being nearby!
Inside, Steve had left tea, coffee, milk and biscuits for our arrival. We were impressed by the high standard and cleanliness throughout the accommodation, it was bright and spacious and the views are amazing from its elevated position. We particularly liked the view of St. Michael’s Mount from the kitchen sink.
We found it an ideal place from which to visit all the amazing coastline of Cornwall and there is a plentiful supply of tourist information in the cottage. Shopping is only minutes away by car in Penzance. The 14th century White Hart Inn serves great food (and drink) in a friendly atmosphere all within staggering of the school house!
We stayed for a week and would have no hesitation in recommending the Old Primary School as a comfortable place to stay.
It was such a shame that we were only staying at this property for 2 nights because it was a lovely cottage that was well maintained and equipped by the very kind owners.
We arrived quite late at night and with prior arrangement and we were very warmly welcomed, they had prepared the property ready for us to just unpack and relax after our 6 hour drive there.
The cottage was lovely and warm there was also hot drinks and biscuits on arrival.
This cottage had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay. It was not the nicest of weather for our stay but the views from the property were still lovely.
I would definitely recommend this property to stay at because I am definitely coming back to this property everytime it's available when I come down to cornwall :)
See you again soon and many thanks Jay & Mina
Clean, warm and cosy, great views and nearby pub and not far from Penzance. It has everything you need and Steve communicated well throughout. We'd love to come back. Highly recommended.
we had a really lovely week in this one bedroom cottage all our needs catered for
The weather was great so that made our holiday even better.
A great location to visit Western Cornwall.
The Primary school is a lovely character building which did not fail to impress us. Situated in a great spot, close to both St. Ives and Penzance, the location is super for exploring the local area. We stayed in the 1 bedroom flat which was very clean and kept in spotless condition. The property boasts wonderful views of St. Michael's Mount and has a very pretty garden where you can relax whilst taking in the beauty of the countryside. We will definitely visit again.
We stayed for the last week in May, and we were very pleased indeed with the Old Primary School. The position is excellent for so many lovely places to visit, and of course the White Hart being just down the road was very useful. The accommodation was clean and complete, nothing missing and everything in an excellent state of repair. The view from the Kitchen window over St Michaels Mount was lovely....and you simply have to go there for a visit, it was superb.
So to sum up I have given a 'score' of 5 green circles and it deserves every single one of them.
