    “Our second visit to Old School House and our stay was just as good as the first one.”

    Bill and Heather were at hand when needed and were helpful with local walk suggestions but left us alone most of the time.

The property

In the heart of Lustleigh, with lovely views over the village and churchyard and countryside beyond, a semi-detached Victorian cottage, once the infants’ part of a school dating from 1876.

Mostly to the front, a pretty garden surrounds it on two levels with your own two patios (tables/chairs, barbecue, fire-pit) and terraced lawn from which to enjoy this sleepy little village and the gorgeous view, and which opens to the friendly owners' adjoining garden.

From garden, door into living room with wood burner effect electric fire, TV/DVD and piano.

Kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge, electric cooker).

Shower-room (suite).

Stairs up to two bedrooms, both with period beams and wrought iron supports (some low, padding provided!) - a double (5' bed) with VDU/DVD and gallery looking through toughened glass (curtains) to downstairs, and one with two singles; loo between the two bedrooms.

A lovely spot, 150 yards from the tea room, pub and shop, with many scenic walking routes from the door. Lustleigh: pretty village (good food pub, church, PO/shop) nestled into the eastern edge of Dartmoor; ½ milefrom famous Lustleigh Cleave (dramatic, tree-filled river valley); close beyond it, the most varied and beautiful part of the moor.

Walking, riding, fishing (river/reservoir).

Golf, 3 miles; sea at Teignmouth, 10 miles, or Torbay, 12.
