Cottage
The Old School Cottage retains its charm with arched windows and modern interior. The original bell is still sited in the bell tower. Private access is through the 'Girls & Infants' entrance. An ideal base for groups of 2, 4 or even 6 to start your exploration of Devon and Cornwall. Within a short drive you can reach many Dartmoor villages (Widecombe-in-the-moor, Meavy, Moretonhampstead, Yelverton etc..) and attractions such as Burrator Reservoir, Burr Island, Cawsands and Morwellham Quay. The market town of Tavistock, Princetown, Yelverton and the City of Plymouth with its maritime history and seafront location are but a short drive. Shops, Chippie and family pubs are a short walk into the village. The Eden Project is about 50min drive away. Looe & Polperro are about 35mins.
