Last week’s featured property was a great example of how a property can be a perfect representation of its surrounding area. We think we may have found its equal with our new cottage of the week, however. The Old School House in Veryan is not just a stunning testament to the heritage of the local area, but also Cornwall itself.
A grade II listed former schoolhouse, one of the first things you’ll notice is the property’s thatched roof – converted to allow incredible views of the stunning surrounds. This combination of original features and contemporary convenience continues throughout the house. You’ll find a perfect marriage of comfort and character, which, basically, means somewhere comfortable to sit while you marvel at the original features!
The surrounding area is equally rich and varied. Just outside the house you’ll find a pretty landscaped garden. Slightly further afield you have Roseland Peninsula with a stunning collection of waterside villages to explore. We’d recommend a visit to Portloe, one of the UK’s prettiest villages and home to some of the UK’s finest seafood.
Location is undeniably one of the property’s selling points, but convenience also plays a large part. You have pretty much all the amenities you could wish for, along with many creature comforts. There’s a TV with DVD, CD player along with a microwave and dishwasher – so you won’t be spending too much of your holiday slaving over a hot stove, or cleaning up after. You’ll also find a shop and pub, both within 100 yards of your front door.
At the time of writing, The Old School House still has availability for the festive period. Please view the property’s listing on the cottages4you website for more information and to make it your winter wonderland.
