The Old School House is a picture-book thatched cottage at the heart of the beautiful conservation hamlet of Ibberton. The surroundings are so picturesque, with a network of local footpaths and countryside walks on the doorstep, that you may decide to leave the car in the garage and explore on foot. The cottage is all on one level and has its own unique history, having once been the village school. There is an open fire, ideal for winter breaks, and a very private, enclosed sheltered garden with a little stream running along the boundary. As for your holiday reading, the international bestseller – Mr Rosenblum’s List – features this very cottage and will certainly set the scene for your holiday.
