The Old School House was originally built as a dames school for the parish in around 1812 for the Reverend Jeremiah Trist, who also conceived the famous Round Houses of the village. Originally single story, the attic was converted in 1884 and, although the property was extensively and sensitively renovated in more recent years, the original ground floor layout remains. Character features include a polygonal hipped water reed thatched roof, arched windows and a central round sided window with wide projecting bay. The roof overhangs the rear of the house deeply forming a verandah supported on two granite columns.
The property is currently configured as a four star two bedroom holiday home, with a integrated self contained annexe used as a separate private dwelling. The house has been successfully let through English Country Cottages, see www.cottages.com/cottages/the-old-school-house-tt5 for several years. Please contact the agent for more lettings information.

Veryan is the most pictureresque village in the heart of the Roseland Peninsula on the south Cornish coast, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and famed for its beautiful countryside, harbour villages, golden beaches and popular stretch of the South West Coastal Path. Just a mile away are the safe, sandy beaches of Pendower and Carne, recently named by The Sunday Times in the top ten best beaches in Britain and the neighbouring village of Portloe is one of the few remaining unspoilt fishing villages left in Cornwall. Although the area has long been a popular holiday destination, the more recent culinary attractions such as the achingly hip 'Hidden Hut Beach Cafe' at Porthcurnick Beach and Michelin starred Driftwood Hotel restaurant (both 4 miles away), along with the chic hotels, restaurant, boutiques and galleries in the nearby sailing resort of St Mawes ensures the area remain one of the desired and enduring destinations in the UK.
