Old School House is on the edge of the quiet village of Gerrans adjacent to the village green and has great views over the bay to Nare Head & Gull Rock. The cottage, though recently built, has been traditionally designed with beams, box frame windows and has loads of character including a really cosy open fireplace in the sitting room. It is a very comfortable place to stay with the benefit of a great, west facing secure courtyard garden to the rear.
It is just a short walk to the villages of Gerrans and neighbouring Portscatho. The Royal Standard pub is just a few steps away and is an excellent little village pub. A short walk down the hill in Portscatho, you can find great sandy beaches, clear waters and loads of rock pools for the kids to explore. Portscatho is well known for its art and there are galleries to browse. The Plume of Feathers is another excellent pub, plus there is a good local store, post office and the Boathouse restaurant.
