The Old School House, is a comfortable dwelling of rustic charm, peace, and beauty. At the turn of the century the residence of the village schoolmaster and today a place to escape and unwind.

The West Country region
Cornwall is a beautiful county with rugged coastline and stunning beaches. It has a mild climate due to the gulf stream and a relaxed way of life. It is a place where you can just unwind and enjoy the environment or, if you wish take part in numerous leisure activities.
St Austell is home to the historic China Clay industry however it is a market town which has become well known through immense public interest in The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden project.
In the town itself there is a cinema, award winning family run brewery, ten pin bowling, leisure centre, beautiful Parish church and shops.
The local area has much to visit. The historic Charlestown harbour is five minutes by car from the cottage. There you will find Square Sail Ships, gift and tea shops, pubs, restaurants and a Shipwreck museum. People like to fish from the harbour wall or sit outside the pubs and watch the world go by. It is often used as a location for films.
There are picturesque fishing villages nearby such as Fowey and Mevagissey and many sporting opportunities. There is a plethoria of pubs selling local beers and good food.
