The Old Primary School

The Old Primary School

The building was the local school from about 1890 until 1984, and for a while afterwards became a costume hire business. In 2000 it was converted in holiday accommodation and has been refurbished regularly since. It is a unique and imposing building, standing alone and surrounded by fields. Many of the local people went to school here and we've even had a few from far overseas return to take a look at the old school.

Situated on the edge of the village, surrounded by fields and overlooking Mounts Bay, The Old Primary School offers accommodation in West Cornwall, 3.8 miles from Penzance and 5.8 miles from St Ives.
