“Clean and comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 1 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

As the name suggests, the accommodation forms an upper part of an old school house. There is a large bedroom, with an en suite bathroom consisting of a shower toilet and washbasin. There is an adjoining room, which is small. I am only 5ft 5ins tall, and could not stand upright in this room, but it could be suitable to sleep a small child.
The facilities are as one would expect, tea/coffee facilities, and TV. There are no cooking facilities, but Kate provided a continental breakfast at a time of my choosing. In addition, Kate provided a small fridge.
The accommodation is situated in the village of Heamoor, a village situated about a mile and a half from Penzance. There is a half hourly bus service to Penzance. The village has a good pub, a post office and general store, a convenience store a cake shop and a fish and chip shop, which is very good considering the size of the village.
On further point which may be of interest. There are two schoolrooms in Heamoor, which confused the taxi driver, who took me to the wrong schoolroom! The Old Schoolroom is next to the British Legion club.
All in all an enjoyable stay, which I would be happy to repeat.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was a welcome reprieve for a weekend away. The owners were always helpful and lovely to talk to, willing to point us in the direction of an attraction or somewhere tasty to eat. Well worth it, stay if you can

“A home away from home”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Service was excellent - Breakfast was brought to our doorstep (Big thumbs up for both)
The room was perfectly described and the pictures were true to to it's description. It really was a relaxing place for my husband & I. It was a home away from home for us to relax while travelling around & experiencing Cornwall

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay @ The Old School House (The School Room)
