We enjoyed our stay at 2 Old School Cottages and were pleased with the local area too. The cottage was homely and comfortable and good value for the cost. We were surprised at the local shops etc and local, reliable bus services. We would definitely return again in the future

The cottage is comfortable and in a beautiful location however it is cluttered with the owners personal effects and as a result multitudes of unnecessary notes of what to do and not do which detracts from the holiday experience. That said we enjoyed our stay and would recommend perhaps not to those with younger children as there are just to many items capable of being damaged.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed the location and have noted your feedback regarding the guidance notes in the property. We're pleased you had a great stay overall. Tanya, Customer Support

The property is spacious and clean. We could not use the conservatory because it had a large coffee table in it, in the shape of a boat that we weren’t allowed to move. We reported an issue with the shower room sink hot tap not working but it wasn’t fixed for 3 days. The owner had left handwritten notes around the property which were excessive. But the biggest issue is the owner’s block of many internet sites. I couldn’t use the Wi-Fi to access what’s app which was frustrating when 11 of our family were staying in other Classic Cottages in Portscatho and we were planning what to do. Facebook was also blocked. My husband couldn’t answer some his work emails via the wifi because business sites were blocked eg LinkedIn. We had to use our own data. The owner had written in the manual in the property that she restricted the use of certain sites but we didn’t know this until we arrived.

We're so sorry to see that you had some problems with the wifi at the property. We've clarified the owner's preferences (moderate parental control setting) and details of this are now included in the property description. Thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support

This cottage is in a great location. You can walk to the beach and local shops, or explore the beautiful countryside of the Roseland.

Staying in this cottage was very accommodating, except for the cleanliness of carpets which should be completely thrown away. It should be totally we carpeted and decorated, flooring down in bathrooms. Tumble dryer brought into the extended second kitchen which houses the oven, it's a wonderful place and well situated for Portscatho.

Lovely cottage, well equipped and in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you!

Lovely cottage in quiet location with good facilties and walking distance to the village amenities and little beach/harbour, plus the benefit of private off road parking. We always enjoy our stays here.

The property location is great however the standard of the interior of the cottage is very dated. Too much like visiting an elder aunts seaside retreat.

We're so pleased to see that you enjoyed the location of the property. The house is furnished in a comfortable country style to help guests have a relaxing, home-from-home stay. We always try to show the decor and feel of a house in our website photos, so would recommend having a look at these before booking so you can see if this appeals. Tanya, Customer Support

This was a delightful cottage and ideally situated for local coastal walks and beaches without using a car. We swam from Porthcurnick Beach after walking over one or two fields and paths and the Hidden Hut catering facilities were the added bonus!

Would definitely rent again and recommend to others

Very well loved cottage with a homely feel to it. Clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Lots of thought has been given to providing information for the guest to enjoy their stay.

Would definately stay again, home from home.

We had a fantastic stay in the cottage: it quickly became a home from home. Lots of clear information provided for guests, with advice on local attractions, shops and restaurants, which showed us how much the owners wanted us to enjoy our stay, which we did. The location was great - one pub on the doorstep and the village shops and restaurant/cafe places of Portscatho a short walk away, together with the beach and coastal path. Really enjoyed taking the ferries around to and from Falmouth, Flushing and St Mawes. Have recommended the cottage to family and we will come back again, hopefully!

A cosy, comfortable, home from home, very well equipped cottage. Ideal location - 10 minutes walk to shops/pub/cafes in Portscatho & the South West Coast Path. Have recommended the property to friends.

We had a lovely stay. The accommodation is really well equipped and well located to enjoy this part of Cornwall.

Cottage generally very good and one of the best equipped kitchens we have had in thirty years of property rentals. It is in a great location for exploring the Roseland peninsula and in particular for walking.

A comfortable and quirky cottage which provides everything for a traditional, relaxed Cornish holiday, situated in an excellent location for exploring the delights of the Roseland Peninsula.

We liked everything. had stayed several years ago loved it then. The only point which in no way a criticism washing up drainer as every thing we needed was supplied That aside we enjoyed every day during our stay and the price was within budget given we were need I say OAPs ??

Lovely spacious cottage in a great location.

Wonderful cottage to stay in, everything you need including close proximity to the pub!

Great place to stay for up to 5 people in a nice location beyond the touristical mainroutes. Easy access to beautiful coastal path, several beaches and not far from some of the top sights in the area (Lost garden of Heligan, St. Mawes Castle, Falmouth, Trebah Garden, Trelissick Garden, Lizard Point, St. Just in Roseland...).

A lovely, warm and welcoming traditional - type cottage, which is very well equipped. It is a very comfortable and restful place to be and the conservatory and small, secluded back garden are delightful, especially in the morning.

Very well equipped cottage in beautiful location.

Comfortable, well-equipped cottage in a great location.

A fantastic "home" to spend time in, the location is perfect, easy walk into Portscatho, Easy drive to the beautiful St Mawes and elsewhere via the King Harry Ferry. Lovely.

Extremely comfortable and cosy property, with everything provided that you could possibly need
