Lovely cottage with Cosy interior and overal well looked after. Set back from the main road in excellent location walking distance to shops, pubs, restaurants and beach and the beautiful St. Micheal’s Mount. It also has a large garden safe for children and four legged friends and a gate at the front. Well recommended if you would like to stay in this lovely little town.

Mrs Hayman September 2023
Wonderful family house right in the centre of Marazion. Only 5 minute walk to the beach and excellent transport links to the rest of Southern Cornwall. We will definitely be staying again.
Mr Donnelly July 2023
This was a very lovely house within easy walking distance of all the shops, restaurants and bars in town. We hardly used our car but it was great to have a parking space. The house itself was very well equipped and the owners were really helpful!
Mr Loftus June 2023
We all had a wonderful stay in The Old School Room. Great accommodation in a fantastic location. The garden, with moonlit views out over the sea on an evening, added the extra wow factor for us.
Ms Leigh June 2023
A thoroughly lovely place to stay, really comfy and cosy, we felt relaxed and welcomed even with the dogs, not too “perfect”, such a great garden, beautiful view, perfect location, 2 mins walk for the beaches, pubs and town. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks!
Mrs De Lukowicz April 2023
This was our second visit to this property. It is in a really lovely location. We came by train and it was an easy taxi ride from Penzance station and then we could walk everywhere. Sainsburys also deliver here so we arrived and an hour later so did our week’s food. The beds are comfy, the hide is spotlessly clean and really well equipped. Lovely bathrooms and fluffy towels. We loved the garden and were lucky to have sunny weather to sit outside and enjoy the view. We were visiting relatives, but also went on many walks straight from the house, over to the mount, around the lanes, along the coast path to the next cove for lunch at the cafe which was lovely. We had an amazing few days and I really hope that we will return. Thank you
Mr Hunt March 2023
This property is clean and comfortable. Central location which means we didn’t use our car for a few days. The parking space is a bonus. So near the beach but also plenty to do in the area. Lovely to get a phone call from the owner before our holiday which was a really nice touch Would definitely recommend.

Mrs Lockyer February 2023
Very happy with our short break in The Old School Room. Location was ideal for exploring the local area and an easy stroll into Marazion with parking at the house a bonus. The property was equipped with everything you need and was warm & cosy, especially with the wood burner lit! Would highly recommend.
Mrs Todd December 2022
Lovely well equipped cottage, fantastic location with large garden and parking.

Mrs Richards September 2022
We loved our stay at the old school room. Parking on the drive wasn’t easy but doable. Location was amazing Marazion is beautiful. The beach is clean and close by. Also close to Mount St Michael Pubs and restaurants all in walking distance. Surrounded by lovely walks. Also short rides in the car to St Ives. Lizard point Lands End. Mouse hole All worth a visit. And of course Penzance. The bus service is also excellent.
Mrs Robinson August 2022
The Old School Room is an amazing property. Very comfortable and very well equipped. The garden is much bigger than it looks on the photo's and the view from the top is wonderful. There is a good dog friendly beach a short walk down Leys Lane. Can highly recommend the Copper Spoon for cakes, pastries and drinks. The Cutty Sark at the Marazion Hotel does amazing food. Would definitely book again.
Mrs Shanahan July 2022
Lovely property with excellent access to Marazion town and beach. The garden at the rear whilst very steep is amazing. We appreciated it for being a sun trap but also being up high allowing for a gentle breeze, really nice. The property has such a welcome feel to it and the kitchen is well equipped. We took advantage of the shed to store all of our beach equipment which helped enormously in keeping sand etc out of the house. The local beach in the Summer was best for kayaking and paddle boarding and swimming and really easy to reach walking in a wetsuit. For body boarding/surfing we ventured over to Godrevy/Gwithian Towans. Interestingly a lot of the cafes/ice cream shops closed at 4pm despite being the tourist season (though they were open 7 days). But then the evening did offer a range of pubs and restaurants for eating/drinking out and it meant the town felt a lot more chilled in the evenings and didn't get over crowded. Concerns about renovations next door were listened to by the owner and by the time we left the noisier work had been completed so is unlikely to be an issue for the future.
Mrs Munro July 2022
I would not hesitate to book this holiday cottage again. Very clean, perfect location, every thing you need for your stay here. Great base for travelling to other towns. Owner called a few days before our holiday to say hello, talk about the cottage and make us aware of this truly beautiful part of Cornwall. The Copper Spoon (literally on the doorstep) was our go to for take away coffee and their amazing almond croissants, Then head down to the tiny harbour to take in yet another fantastic view of St Michaels Mount. Recommend The Fire Engine Inn for food and The Godolphin Hotel for a G&T after a day exploring more of Cornwall. That view!!
Mrs Hall April 2022
Lovely property, and a great location but needs smartening up and attention to detail upgraded.

Thank you for your review of The Old School Room, we are so pleased that you enjoyed the location - Marazion is a wonderful location and a great base for exploring the South West. We are sorry that the property didn't quite meet your expectations and will be in touch. Sarah, Customer Support
Mrs Williams April 2022
The Old School Room proved to be a perfect base to explore the Cornish coast. The house is beautiful, quiet, we’ll kept with a gorgeous garden. It’s location in the heart of Marazion meant only a five minute walk to the beach, St Michael’s mount and the various amenities. The car parking space takes all the hassle out of visiting Marazion, we have a medium sized SUV and had no problems, with room for another car if needed.
Mrs Rates March 2022
We read the glowing reports on the website of the welcoming Cornish tea…..but no! Perhaps it’s only during the summer. (The milk, bread and fairings were welcome anyway.)
Had an excellent and very well priced meal at the hotel restaurant.
Mr Hickman November 2021
The parking is a real bonus for Marazion. Upside down accommodation as the bedrooms are downstairs and this works well as the property is set into sloping terrain and there is little natural light downstairs. Great views from the garden. Only comment would be that the knives are getting a little blunt! The Victoria Inn in Perranuthnoe was great for eating out and we booked that for a second night.
Reply from Classic Cottages
We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Marazion. Thanks so much for letting us know about the knives - we've asked the housekeeper to have a look and also to double check that there is a knife sharpener available in the cottage. It's great to see that you visited the Victoria Inn - it's very popular with locals as well. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Tate November 2021
This is a beautiful space and is extremely well equipped; everything you could possibly need is there. The garden is huge and very natural. Parking space is a real bonus. We had the best time and felt so at home it was hard to leave. I will definitely look at staying again.
Ms Stone April 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the old school house which is in an excellent location for the beach and local shops, with access directly onto the South West coastal path and a couple of hundred yards from St. Michaels Mount. There is a bus stop about 50 yards away. The local people couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming and I would recommend supporting their small businesses when visiting. Particularly recommended is ‘The Copper Spoon’ just down the road for its fresh Sourdough and pastries. The house itself is an excellent home from home with all the contemporary conveniences that you could hope for. The elevated enclosed garden is private and has spectacular views.
Mrs Eason April 2021
The cottage is wonderful, very spacious and well thought out. We had a great time. The garden is fabulous with great views over Mount’s Bay from the top and it’s a real sun trap. The cottage is very well equipped and the owners have thought of everything. And such a bonus to have parking!
Mrs Hume December 2020
Wonderful cottage, perfectly equipped, well placed and an absolute delight to holiday in... If you ever sell it ring me! lol My family come from Marazion and it was nice to show my husband where they used to live and farm from 1850 - 1982 ish. Thankyou for letting us stay we really appreciated the set up and Im sure the garden in the spring/summer is an absolute delight. The dog was very happy too!
Mr Harrison December 2020

A well appointed comfortable home with a large garden, and an amazing wood burner. We were so warm and cosy. Not our last visit by any means!
Mr Beard September 2020
Excellent location if you wnat to leave the car parked for a while. The garden would be superb for sitting out in the summer months.
Mrs Gizzi January 2020
Excellent stay, the owners have thought of everything.. the garden is huge with a wonderful view of the bay.. Lovely touch the goodie basket of local produce and doggie treats.. would definitely recommend to friends..
Mrs Coniam November 2019
We found the Old School Room the perfect holiday 'home from home.' Anything you could possible want is provided in very high quality accommodation. Ideal in every way. Would recommend wholeheartedly.
Mr Hollis September 2019
We stayed for 2 weeks in Sept/October and really enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the cream tea and the flowers left for us was a really nice welcoming touch - thank you Emma! It is tastefully decorated, very well equipped with everything we needed and more besides. Lovely big garden and it was shame we couldn't use it more because of bad weather. The position in Marazion is great, as is the parking space. It was also very quiet. Really comfy bed and bedding. Great en-suite shower. We hope to stay again next year
Mr Walker September 2019
The Old School Room Cottage is well positioned in Marazion. It offers very comfortable accommodation, beautifully decorated throughout, and very well equipped . The spacious garden , with views out to sea is an added bonus .
Ms Jago September 2019
Lovely place to stay, well equipped, clean and beautiful house, very dog friendly and within easy reach of lots of iconic West Cornwall views and beaches.
Mrs Broomhead August 2019
We really enjoyed our time everyone in the family including the dog had a great time would highly recommend. Hope to go back one day sadly already fully booked up for next year or we would be back. Extra touches were appreciated.
Mrs Broomhead August 2019
I would recommend this beautiful house the extra touches were lovely. We will be back had a fantastic holiday. We all enjoyed it us the kids and dog. We came home feeling refreshed and relaxed wish we were still there.
Miss Shaw August 2019
Beautiful place to stay...located really well for everything..just don't put the price up too much.
Mrs Chandler July 2019
We had a wonderful time and the cottage was everything we hoped it would be and more. Fantastic location, extremely well stocked and furnished and a real home from home. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Only one problem and that was that a week simply wasn’t long enough!
Mr Baxter May 2019
The Old School Room is a wonderful cottage. It is in a wonderful location and the mount and beach are easily walkable. There is an even nearer dog walking beach than long rock and a lovely walk on the hillside behind the cottage. The garden is secure for dogs although I did have to block a gap by the pole as my dog was taking a lot of interest in it! We caught the direct but to Penzance and St Ives to avoid traffic and parking. This was easy and the stop was near the property. I am struggling to think of any negatives. This cottage met all our needs (walkable beach/pub/Mount) and was lean with everything for a great stay. A lovely welcome ‘pack’ too, including milk, tea bags, scones and dog treats was a ‘welcome’ surprise. Book here and you won’t be disappointed.
Mrs Herbert May 2019
A beautiful home well equipped in a peaceful location with easy access to Marazion. We were delighted with the generous gifts left for us and the dog on our arrival.
Mrs De Lukowicz April 2019
We had a wonderful stay at The Old School Room. The pictures really don’t do it justice. Everything was so clean and fresh. The children loved the garden and spent all of their time out there or on the Mount! The real bonus was that we ended up having a car free holiday which was brilliant. I have already recommended your company to friends who saw my photos and wanted to know more!
Ms Burdge April 2019
Our stay was just a delight and would love to go back to this fabulous cottage
Miss Whale October 2018
We loved our stay at the Old School Room - it surpassed our expectations. Beautifully furnished and presented, spotlessly clean, and with lots of little extra touches that made it feel special. The garden (and view from it) was amazing - the dog was in heaven. We will definitely return.
Miss Shaw August 2018
Beautiful place to stay ..central to many places to visit..wonderful.
Ms Godfrey August 2018

Mr Eddon July 2018
Thanks for a great stay
Mrs Lindstrom June 2018
A fantastic cottage in a great location, views from the garden were great and our dog loved running around. The cottage was really well presented and we loved relaxing in the open plan living space upstairs. We'll definitely be back!
Mrs Davies June 2018
Lovely cottage and garden very well equiped with good quality items
Mr Clark May 2018
Fabulous space in a wonderful location.
Mr Southward May 2018
This is a lovely cottage ideally situated to explore the southern tips of Cornwall. When we arrived there was milk in the fridge plus clotted cream to go with the scones and jam in our welcome basket. There were also teabags & biscuits for us plus biscuits for the dog which we thought was great. The large garden was fantastic for the dog it was enclosed and safe. Although dogs are only allowed on most beaches after 7 pm if you walk from Marazion towards Penzance on the coastal footpath there is a dog friendly beach that they can go on.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
