An outstanding experience.
Everything was magical about our stay. The beautiful house with its lived-in furniture and wonderfully appointed kitchen with an Aga , which means so much to me as I cook on one at home in London. And the garden was so varied and inviting and filled with the peace of quietness and meditation. Thank you, thank you Diana for a perfect dreamtime away from London. We absolutely loved it.
Wonderful, exciting, impressing, relaxing
We spent about 10 days in this beautiful house. It was well-equipped and combined all modern aspects with its old style. We enjoyed the huge garden as well as all the individual rooms. From a location perspective it was ideal to go for hiking into Dartmoor or for swimming into the nearby sea. Overall it was an unforgettable experience. Thanks!
A wonderful home and location
We had a fabulous time in this beautiful, comfortable and spacious home. The surrounding area is very rural, peaceful and stunning. We also enjoyed Tavistock and outings to Dartmoor where we went pony trekking and swam in an outdoor lido.
Perfectly gorgeous schoolhouse
The house is very tasteful and lovely. It feels like a real home with lots of personal touches, and many beautiful items to look at and enjoy - books, art, furniture. It had everything we needed and everything worked perfectly. The grounds and views are especially beautiful. We enjoyed the bleating of the sheep and the dancing of the swallows every morning and evening.
It's a great central location for visiting Dartmoor Park, as well as the north and south coasts of Devon, and even Cornwall if you're up for the drive. There are lots of beautiful things to see and do nearby - we were very busy every day!
The owner is very nice and the communication was fast and easy.
Two things of note - the home is adjacent to an old church and cemetery (not a concern for us, but worth knowing), and it's about a 15-20 minute drive to the nearest town for good grocery shopping. It feels quite remote until you get oriented to the neighbourhood, but if you seek peace and quiet you will love it!
We would definitely visit this property again and we highly recommend it!
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
Thank you John for your delightful review. What was so pleasing to me was your total immersion in the holiday, appreciating all that you found around you and went out to discover.
It was a real pleasure to have you to stay in the School House and I hope you will come again to feel at home a second time and to experience more.
Les maisons du National Trust à Cotehele, Castle Drogo et Buckland Abbey sont toutes à moins d'une heure de route. L'Eden Project et les jardins perdus d'Heligan sont de grands favoris. Fowey et St Mawes sont de belles villes pour des excursions d'une journée pour explorer la côte sud des Cornouailles.
Le Festival St Endellion pour les mélomanes se déroule au printemps et en été avec des programmes de Mark Padmore. Port Eliot organise également un festival annuel des arts. L'Hotel Endsleigh d'Olga Polizzi propose un excellent thé l'après-midi et des cocktails surplombant la rivière Tamar.
Si vous vous aventurez, le Darmoor Inn at Lydford propose une excellente cuisine, à seulement 10 minutes en voiture et peut être la fin parfaite pour une journée de marche sur Dartmoor depuis Widgery. Il y a une vapeur particulièrement pittoresque juste au-delà du parking en dessous de Widgery Tor.
Ceux qui s'intéressent au jardinage peuvent visiter The Garden House près de Yelverton, Cotehele Gardens et Caerhays. Dans le pays romantique de Daphne de Maurier, Glendurgan Gardens est spécialisé dans les plantations exotiques et possède un labyrinthe de lauriers.
Pour les actifs, il y a du surf à Polzath et de nombreuses plages locales au choix entre Tintagel, Trebarwith Strand et Tregardock. Vous pouvez trouver de délicieux crabe et homard frais pour votre pique-nique en vous promenant dans Port Isaac, la toile de fond de Doc Martin de la télévision.
Il y a quatre châteaux locaux à Lydford, Launceston, Okehampton et Powderham. À Cornwall, Chysauster Ancient Village offre un regard fascinant sur la vie romaine et se trouve à proximité de Penzance, Mousehole, Zennor, la crique de Lamorna et le théâtre en plein air Minack.
