Cottage in Mawgan, Helston, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, Beaches Only 10 Minutes Drive Away, Stunning Countryside
About Richard Humby
Owner Jane Humby: We have owned the Old School House since the mid 1980's. When we bought the house it was only a shell, four walls, no floor and no roof! Over the last twenty five years we have put a lot of time and dedication into bringing the house back to its former glory. We have had many lovely family holidays at The School House and have great memories throughout the years. We hope that your holiday holds as many special memories.
Richard Humby purchased this Cottage in 1980
Why Richard Humby chose Mawgan
The house is set in a beautiful tranquil location, with woodland and rolling fields right on the doorstep. The small village is equipped with all your daily needs, a good local shop and an even better local pub, with award winning locally sourced food. There is an abundance of wildlife and local walks with stunning scenery. The house is conveniently placed within easy driving distance of many of Cornwall's most stunning areas and local attractions. Beautiful beaches are just a ten minute drive away.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is conveniently located only a five mile drive away from Helston, a famous small market town. Helston can provide you with all your day to day grocery needs with two large supermarkets, petrol stations and small independent shops. Back in Mawgan the pace of life is much slower, you will see the pheasant every morning in the garden saying hello. The house offers very spacious accommodation spread over two living rooms and a large kitchen on the ground floor. The secluded garden offers a huge expanse of beautifully kept lawns and the woods are a great place for kids and adults alike to have a great adventure.

A perfect hideaway in beautiful location. Well equipped, spotless and comfortable accomodation.
Wonderful cottage, wonderful location !
We (4 adults and 2 toddlers) had a lovely holiday, the cottage is great , a home away from home. It is very well stocked and is equipped with all you might need.
The old school house is located on the outskirts of Mawgan ( a great location and good place to base yourself whilst staying on the Lizard peninsula as only minutes from beach, helford river, seal sanctuary and many other attractions) but only minutes walk from the village shop and pub!
Jane the owner, was very friendly and helpful, and emailed us a list of good places to go, advice about pre booking certain pubs etc....
Needless to say we will be back.....
