Tranquil rural retreat
Our group of 4 (2 couples) spent a lovely week at
the Coryton School House. This rambling, spacious
and comfortable house is truly charming and
unique, filled with art, pottery and books. One
feels that one is in someone’s private home and
the hostess has just stepped out. There are two
wings to the house, connected by a large, bright,
cozy (it has an Aga!), beautifully-appointed
kitchen -- so privacy was never an issue. All of the
bathrooms are great, but we especially enjoyed
the sunken bathroom in the original part of the
house, which has lovely views of the church and
picturesque graveyard. Everything was very clean
and functioned well, including Wifi. The outside is
just as nice -- there is a large outdoor eating area,
(complete with pergola and grill) that we used for
almost all of our meals. There are 3 garden areas
-- we moved our lounge chairs around depending
on the time of day and enjoyed cocktails every
night in the "secret garden" which has amazing
views of the countryside. The gardens are filled
with wild flowers, lavender and rosemary and the
place is so quiet and tranquil that we could have
been happy just puttering around the house every
Nevertheless, we did venture out, to Travistock for
groceries and the Pannier Market, to Cornwall for a
nice long hike along the southwest coast path, to
Brentor for the climb up to evensong at St.
Micheal, to Dartmoor National park, of course, to
Wydcombe on the Moor, Postbridge and Chagford
and to Bat Tor and Wind Tor. We also enjoyed just
walking along the back lanes, where we only very
occasionally saw a car. Joanna very kindly
facilitated a visit to the nearby Kigbeare Studios
and Gallery where we were given a fascinating tour
of the workshop by the potter Svend Bayer and got
to see some beautiful pottery. Finally, we enjoyed
a very nice dinner at the Castle Inn in Lydford.
Americans considering this place might be a bit
nervous about the Aga but it we pretty quickly
figured out how to make simple dinners, and in
any case there is a regular stove and oven as well
and a grill and microwave. Joanna was unfailingly
helpful and very easy to reach and the caretaker
lives just down the lane. We would recommend
this home without reservation and we all hope to
A wonderful peaceful retreat
The Old School House is an amazing, quiet and spacious home in a wonderful part of Devon. It has everything that a visitor would want. A caring owner who wants you to enjoy every part of your vacations in a perfect setting.all we can say is thank you.
I am pleased that you came all the way from Canada and had such an enjoyable time, it was a pleasure to have you to stay.
Peace in beautiful Valley
This is a beautiful much loved house in a stunning position right next to the village church. The only sounds at night are lambs bleating and owls hooting and in the daytime you just get the lambs.
The accommodation is luxurious and having two sitting rooms allows your party to split into two - TV watchers and readers!
The house is spotlessly clean and very well equipped and the Aga keeps it cosy. There is a large garden full of bluebells at this time of year and plenty of outside seating.
Lots to do locally - Lydford Gorge, Endsleigh Nurseries, swimming on Dartmoor all hugely recommended.
My family had a fantastic time at the Old School House. It is like a home away from home. It's much more spacious than we expected, with wonderful views. The Aga makes the kitchen the heart of the home and we had great fun using it to cook and dry our clothes. Both sitting rooms have a fireplace and we had a fire burning each night. We played croquet in the garden and explored the church next door. Joanna is a great host, quick to answer any questions we had. Would love to go back next year.
I am delighted that you had such a good time, and used the croquet set on the terraces. It was thoughtful of you to ask how to light the fire with no grate, and much appreciated.
You will be welcome any time, you left the house in immaculate condition, thank you.
Stylish but cosy old school house
This is a very beautifully furnished house , with many works of art in every nook and cranny .The old school house is charming and melds into a light , airy and well designed contemporary extension . The beds are extremely comfortable , and the location is very peaceful . We enjoyed the many daffodils in the garden .
We spent the days walking , and the evenings by the open fire .
Highlights were the kitchen range , the piano and the music books , and the stylish decor .
We found the open fire rather smoky, especially in the master bedroom so maybe the chimney was due to be swept ?
Would be lovely to stay here in the Summer , as the garden is quite a feature .
Beautiful, welcoming house in stunning countryside
My daughter, aged 10, wrote this in the visitors book and I think it is a nice summary of all that was good about this house:
We had such a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. My brother and I loved the big garden where we played football. I also loved playing the piano, I learnt so much on it. My Dad and I picked loads of apples, they were absolutely delicious. My Grandma found this house very peaceful, and she enjoyed relaxing in it. Also, my parents loved using the Aga for cooking. Overall we had a wonderful, enjoyable weekend in this fabulous house. :)
I would add, the house was perfectly set out for us as my mum, who can't really manage stairs very well, was on the ground floor with her own bathroom. She only had to negotiate a couple of steps as the kitchen was on a slightly different level.
There are two beautiful sitting rooms, the larger one with the piano which was a lovely place to sit and relax and the other with the TV. The kitchen was very well equipped and we managed to cook everything using the AGA despite not having used one before (and there is a conventional oven, induction hob and microwave also available if required).
The garden is amazing. We were there at the wrong time of the year to make the best use of it but the children still enjoyed playing outside and picking apples.
Joanna was very helpful before, during and after our stay (returning left behind items!)
I just wish we had stayed slightly longer as we were only there 3 nights and didn't do as much exploring as I would have liked to!
