There are far reaching views across Falmouth harbour from almost every room in this cottage, converted from a Victorian school building and found in a quiet residential location above the main streets of Falmouth. A short downhill walk takes you to the shops, pubs, restaurants and bars in the lively town centre, although there is a friendly local pub a short walk down the road. A flight of steps leads from the parking-area to the short terrace of cottages with The Old School House at the far end. Semi-detached, immaculately presented and a real home-from-home, The Old School House is a perfect family holiday base, with a large, comfortably furnished sitting-room with patio doors leading out to the wide balcony and garden, from where the ever-changing activity out on the water can be enjoyed (see photograph). The fully equipped kitchen/dining-area has French doors leading onto an enclosed paved garden, prettily planted with shrubs. Upstairs, the three bedrooms share the well appointed family bathroom and an additional cloakroom below. Sandy beaches are less than a mile away offering various watersports tuition, and ferries from the nearby Prince of Wales Pier sail to Flushing, Truro, St Mawes and the Helford River.
