About this property
… in the heart of Lustleigh with lovely views over the village and churchyard with countryside beyond, a semi-detached Victorian cottage, once the infants’ part of a school dating from 1876. Mostly to the front, a pretty garden surrounds it on two levels with your own two patios (tables/chairs, barbecue, chimenea) and terraced lawn from which to enjoy this sleepy little village and the gorgeous view, and which opens to the friendly owners' adjoining garden.
From garden, door into living room with woodburner, TV/DVD and piano. Fitted kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave). Shower-room (suite). Stairs up to two bedrooms, both with period beams and wrought iron supports (some low, padding provided!) and VDU/DVD – a double (5’ bed) with gallery looking through toughened glass (curtains) to downstairs, and one with two singles; loo. A lovely spot, 150 yards from tea room, pub and shop, with many scenic walking routes from the door.

""Great location, excellent holiday accommodation, fantastic hosts. What more could you want?""
""This is a delightful cottage oozing with charm and character. There is ample room in the kitchen for a large table and 4 chairs. The kitchen is very well equipped. The living area is slightly smaller, but in good weather you can spill out to the garden and enjoy outstanding views across the village. In the summer months the garden bursts with colourful flowers and Heather and Bill have created several seating areas for guests to use throughout the garden. Upstairs the master bedroom is comfortable and nicely furnished. The full character of S33945 can be felt in this room with its large window which overlooks the lane behind the School House. The twin room offers fantastic views over the garden and Lustleigh Village itself. A seat is neatly placed in front of the window for you to enjoy these views. A lovely cottage situated in a pretty village. The hosts, Heather and Bill are friendly and welcoming. This is one of the best cottages we have stayed at and found it perfect for a couple.""
""Wonderful cottage with beautiful views in all directions. Cottage so comfortable and warm with everything you need for a great holiday. The owners were very welcoming with lots of ideas of walks from the door and places to visit and to eat. We hope to book the cottage again next year as there is so much more to see and do, a week is not enough!""
""Ideal location for those us who wished to leave the car parked and walk straight from the cottage into the gorgeous woods and onto the moor. Make sure you have your legs ready for the steep hills! A comfortable, warm and well appointed cottage, a good welcome back after a day on Dartmoor. The friendly owner not only provided a welcome 'starter pack' of basic foods but was a wealth of local information. And the local shop in Lustleigh was a delightful surprise, supplementing our supplies to keep us well fed for our short week.""
""Excellent location. Many beautiful walks in and around Lustleigh...no need to use the car here! Fantastic, warm and friendly hosts. Would definitely stay here again.""
""This is a lovely characterful place to stay. Comfortable, clean and dry well equipped with everything g you might need including Pictionary. There was a bowl of fresh fruit on arrival and milk, tea and coffee. The owner was welcoming and helpful and the wood burning stove laid and ready to light. Lustleigh is gorgeous with a well stocked village shop/PO and The Cleeve pub serves good beer and food. The perfect base for exploring Dartmoor.""

""We are very happy with our vacacion in Lustleigh, the Old School. Thanks Bill for the help en tips. The house is a wonder! We'll come back.""
""This was a lovely house which had been tastefully converted from an old infant school classroom. The owners were very friendly and helpful, ensuring that tea, coffee and milk were available for our arrival. They also ensured that we knew what was happening in the village, so that we could take part, for example, in a pub quiz night. They also pointed out local walks and provided all the information we might need. We had a great week!""
