We have had the most amazing week in Cornwall!

The quality of the accommodation and hospitality of the owners, Jo and Mike is some of the best we have ever had. The 'Old School Annexe' was comfortable, clean, fresh and very well equipped with everything catered for. What really makes the difference is the quality of what is provided and the special extra touches that were included! From crisp bed linen and fluffy towels to fresh flowers, a welcome hamper and homemade cake, we were immediately made to feel welcome and part of an extended family. Nothing was too much trouble!

The quiet rural location was perfect, whilst allowing us to get out and explore Cornwall and being blessed with good weather we were able to get out and really explore!

We would truly recommend the 'Old School Annexe' to anyone.

“Fantastic accommodation in a relaxing location”

After recently returning from a relaxing 4 night break at The Old School Annex we can honestly say the accommodation has the “wow” factor and has been finished to a very high standard.

The Old School Annex really feels like home from home and when we arrived Jo had even provided us with a lovely cream tea, which she left in the fridge, along with some milk, tea, bread, and eggs. This was a lovely gesture, which was really appreciated, after our long journey.

On arrival Jo and Mike gave us a very warm welcome, along with some ideas of places to visit for dinner. The Miners Arms at Mithey, the Bollingey Inn (just a short walk away) plus the Italian Restaurant in Perranporth are certainly eateries you should try to visit if you can.

The Old School Annex is in a picture postcard location with a bubbling brook running alongside the house. There are lots of walks you can take directly from the Annex along with places further afield such as Perranporth Beach (which is over 2 miles long), Carbis Bay, St Ives (not to be missed) and Padstow.

There is nothing negative we can say about The Old School Annex; Jo and Mike even had the foresight to leave some maps in the Annex, which made planning our daily trips much easier.

Finally I would like to say a big thank you to Jo, Mike and their family for making our stay so enjoyable, we will certainly be recommending the Old School Annex to our family and friends.

We arrived late in the dark , fairy lights guided us to our weekend retreat. The annex is beautifully decorated, everything has been thought of. Fresh bread ,butter, milk, teabags, coffee, sugar,milk scones jam & clotted cream even bacon & eggs were waiting for us .A lovely surprise seeing as we'd left our food at home . The annex was immaculate, crisp fresh bedding & fluffy bath linen. Wish we'd stayed longer. A lovely place to stay. The owners are discrete yet friendly & approachable. The pub down the road is a must *Bolingey* Take a touch for the walk home its not far but its very dark..We will definitely be going back .Thankyou Jo and Mike from Dave & Haidee

The Annexe is beautifully decorated. It's a very clean, comfortable and cosy place to stay - we totally recommend it. Jo & Mike were super friendly but respected our privacy. The local coastline is divine - the South West Coast Pathway near St Agnes and Perranporth beach were great spots for walking and running. The house is close to a couple of pubs that are worth checking out - we enjoyed both the local Bolingey Inn and The Miners Arms, a bit further away in Mithian.

The Annex was clean, comfortable and spacious. It' is set in a beautiful woodland valley with a stream., which the children really enjoyed playing in. We had a lovely meal at the Bolingey Inn, which Mike and Jo had recommended.
