Perfectly situated to enjoy the benefits of Cornwall and sitting quietly behind the converted chapel, overlooking the Cornish countryside, this converted Sunday School provides an ideal holiday base from which to explore the county. Cycling and walking on the official ’Clay Trails’ within the area are a must, along which you can explore the area and even reach the world famous Eden Project. St Austell, with its leisure centre, is approximately 6 miles, as is the village of Charlestown, home to ’tall ships’ and a shipwreck heritage museum that houses artefacts from the Titanic. To the north of the property, the fishing village of Padstow, with its numerous restaurants (local seafood is a speciality), is easily accessible. Also available is bike hire (the famous Camel Trail), fishing trips and diving. Newquay, with its excellent surfing beaches, is approximately 12 miles away, and close by is Jamie Oliver’s restaurant ’Fifteen’. On the south coast, the ancient fishing port of Fowey is within 10 miles and was home to Daphne Du Maurier. Fowey has many events throughout the year, such as the Du Maurier festival and the Fowey Royal Regatta. It is also home to many galleries, pubs, restaurants and shops. Sea fishing, sailing and diving trips are available locally. Bodmin Moor is also close by and provides an excellent location for horse riding, walking and mountain biking. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock House, Restormel Castle and Crealy Adventure Park are all within an easy drive. Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    This is my second visit to The Sunday School, the first was a weekend break with a friend, I liked it so much that this time was a week, and I brought my husband! So,where to start? The owners - smashing people, friendly and considerate and go above and beyond to make your stay as perfect as possible. The welcome hamper will amaze you, we had afternoon tea for 2 days, breakfast similar, as well as various other treats and goodies that made our evenings special. :-) The property itself is beautiful, and very well appointed. The house is spacious, light and airy - but cosy too. I've no idea why somebody said the kitchen was dark? That's what the lights are for...turn them on! I've cooked here, and found no problems at all. There is a massive cooker, plenty of pots/pans and utensils, a handy dishwasher, washer/dryer (very handy for the hot tub towels) and of course a fridge/freezer. For the nights you don't want to cook there are plenty of options up on the notice board - we used a local Chinese delivery twice, and the food was hot, excellent quality and came when expected, we definitely recommend them! The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of choice of pillows, and snuggly bedding. The sofas are ideal for relaxing with a film - and there are plenty of entertainment options too, for cosy evenings in. And on the relaxation note - we LOVE the hot tub!!! Follow a couple of simple rules - no glasses (alternative drinks containters are provided) and shower beforehand to remove any creams and oils, so as to keep the water sparkling, easy peasy, lie back, and be massaged and enjoy the evenings! The parking - we drove my husband's A6 in fine, although it was far too long to do a 3 point turn, but when I stayed, with my average size hatchback, I managed to turn it and drive out with zero issues. So, if you have a very long saloon or estate I guess you might need to reverse straight in or out, rather than turn. But an average hatchback type, no problems. The locale - it's a hamlet, so anyone expecting a bustling metropolis and nightlife other than bats and owls clearly hasn't read about the area. We went for the peace and quiet that comes with backing onto a nature reserve, and with that, the fact we could order a takeaway was an unexpected bonus. :-) But there are pubs and shops not too far away at all, and anything you need, just ask Sharon and Brian, and they'll have the answer. I really can't recommend The Sunday School highly enough, and we've already booked for another week next year. :-)

    Great first half of the week in a lovely cottage. Second half was spoilt due to owners attitude. Turned down the offer of a free week stay (as an apology)

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It was unfortunate that the hot tub had not been used correctly and for health and safety reasons, required a water change half way through the guests stay. It does state within the Terms & Conditions that unreasonable behaviour is not acceptable, and it is a guest’s responsibility to re-reimburse an Owner for any damage that has been caused. Unfortunately, the terms were not adhered to on this occasion but all costs that occurred were wavered and the hot tub water was changed so the guest could enjoy the rest of their stay. A free week’s holiday was offered as an apology for my curt response after receiving an offensive comment. I have great reviews about myself and the Sunday school. I have worked extremely hard to achieve our Customer Choice awards and will continue to give a high and friendly service to all my future guests. It is such a shame that your action contributed for your second week not being great. Kind Regards Sharon.

    This is our third year staying at The Sunday School and it is a much needed luxury break in winter! It is warm and welcoming, Sharon is a delightful hostess, the hot tub is secluded and the furnishing very comfortable. Let me talk you through it. The gates to the private parking area are left open and there is enough space to turn your car to drive out if you don't wish to reverse. (Our car is not a small one.) The entrance hall is wide (umbrella provided if needed) and to the right is the main bedroom, the side lights welcoming, the heating warming, the bed made up with scrupulously clean linen. Dressing gowns, hot water bottles, towels, blanket, pillows and cushions, hair dryer are all provided. We unpack and put the kettle on. On the table are large scones, jam (we asked for more and it was provided within minutes) cream and butter. Tea, coffee, milk and sugar are all there. In the fridge were sausages and bacon, eggs and baps, baked beans, breakfast cereals, sauces, salt and pepper and oil so breakfast (and lunch) are taken care of. In the lounge rests a basket with wine, biscuits, 3 types of fruit and chocolates. Outside the hot tub awaits - private, for your own use 24 hours a day. Each day Sharon or Brian come round to clean it. 2 bulbs blew in the bedside lights - fixed within a couple of hours. It is clean, smells fresh (never a hint of dog), is comfortable and you can relax on the large L shaped sofa and watch the large screen TV or read a book, play a game or chat. We feel totally at home. You will never find a better holiday cottage than this. (plus it's a very good price, esp with all the food and extras) And as for Joe of Sheffield, his wife's review (you can read it in the visitor book) is 'will miss this place... Sharon...defo went the extra mile...Beautiful cottage came with everything needed...we all really enjoyed our stay.' I agree with her.

    2 adults and a dog. Lovely cottage, great contained garden that the dog loved. Everything you need was here, kitchen has everything needed. Spotlessly clean and the hot tub was lovely after lots of walking!! I couldn’t recommend this cottage any higher, if only I could score it 11.

    Wonderful stay at the Sunday School as a group of 4 adults. We had a nice walk around the Goss Moor Trail, which the dogs loved but my legs didn't appreciate as much. However, the hot tub helped! Sharon is also a wonderful host, very attentive and lovely. We will definitely look to stay again.

    All the photos look great. Sharron is nice and welcoming. Arrived, no parking in the carport as shown on photos and parking is very tight for large cars. The beds in all the rooms are not the same as the ones in the photos, metal frames. On arrival we was told the heating was broken and only comes on 6 times a day (we went for new year week!) one of the 6 times being in middle of the night. Roasting and living room was cold from 6-10pm in the evening had to your a blanket!! Then to be woken up by barking dogs at 6am (neighbours or owners) to top it off it smelt lovely on arrival but after a day it smelt of dogs!! Nice touch with bacon and sausage in the fridge and fresh duck eggs! But would not stop here again. Very small fridge, and the hot tub is not very well lit on the garden area. Children cannot go in the hot tub for insurance purposes. Kitchen is very dark to work in and the cooker hood light did not work. Check out was very promt... hostess approached at 10am on the dot as we left.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to write a Reevoo and in the guest book but this seems to be contradictive. I am so sorry you feel this way; I wish you had raised your concerns to myself to solve your issues directly whilst you were here to make your stay more comfortable. I am glad you liked the bacon, sausages, duck eggs, milk, baked beans, cereal, butter, baps, afternoon tea, chocolate, fruit, biscuits, and wine of the welcome pack. The beds have been changed to be kept up to our high standards to be able to keep getting the customer’s choice award 4 years running. The heating is in full working order and the bulbs have been replaced on the cooker hood. Children can use the hot tub with supervision at all times; it is the infants that are not allowed. The garden area has a diffused glass on it due to the evening wildlife; as we are rural the area has working dogs, most guests enjoy the sounds of rural life and watching bats and birds of prey. There is ample parking (if your driving skills are compromised we are more than happy to change the arrangements). I do like to come and say goodbye and thank you for staying with us. We apologise that this is at 10am but this is your contractual time upon leaving, but I do not mind if this is later.

    This is our 3rd time at the Sunday School and we’ve already booked for the future. We have stayed in many cottages, but this is the best by far and nothing will ever match it. It is so cosy and warm, and has everything you need to ensure your stay is home from home. I don’t know what Joe from Sheffield is on about, I’d much prefer to have updated comfortable furniture! Also there is plenty of parking space for our large 4x4. The hot tub is amazing ( we’ve sat in it at midnight gazing at the stars) and the welcome pack is the best we’ve ever received- lovely locally sourced food. Thank you so much Sharon and Brian for providing such a lovely, relaxing place to stay. We will be back many more times

    Once again an absolutely fantastic stay at The Sunday School. Quite definitely the best holiday cottage we’ve had the pleasure of staying in, all other cottages don’t even come close to this one. Sharon Is so thoughtful and provides everything you need and more so very generous. We’ve been going for the last four years and we’re looking forward to our fifth visit in September. A beautiful stay every time.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; It was unfortunate that the hot tub had not been used correctly and for health and safety reasons, required a water change half way through the guests stay. It does state within the Terms & Conditions that unreasonable behaviour is not acceptable, and it is a guest’s responsibility to re-reimburse an Owner for any damage that has been caused. Unfortunately, the terms were not adhered to on this occasion but all costs that occurred were wavered and the hot tub water was changed so the guest could enjoy the rest of their stay. A free week’s holiday was offered as an apology for my curt response after receiving an offensive comment. I have great reviews about myself and the Sunday school. I have worked extremely hard to achieve our Customer Choice awards and will continue to give a high and friendly service to all my future guests. It is such a shame that your action contributed for your second week not being great. Kind Regards Sharon.

    This is our third year staying at The Sunday School and it is a much needed luxury break in winter! It is warm and welcoming, Sharon is a delightful hostess, the hot tub is secluded and the furnishing very comfortable. Let me talk you through it. The gates to the private parking area are left open and there is enough space to turn your car to drive out if you don't wish to reverse. (Our car is not a small one.) The entrance hall is wide (umbrella provided if needed) and to the right is the main bedroom, the side lights welcoming, the heating warming, the bed made up with scrupulously clean linen. Dressing gowns, hot water bottles, towels, blanket, pillows and cushions, hair dryer are all provided. We unpack and put the kettle on. On the table are large scones, jam (we asked for more and it was provided within minutes) cream and butter. Tea, coffee, milk and sugar are all there. In the fridge were sausages and bacon, eggs and baps, baked beans, breakfast cereals, sauces, salt and pepper and oil so breakfast (and lunch) are taken care of. In the lounge rests a basket with wine, biscuits, 3 types of fruit and chocolates. Outside the hot tub awaits - private, for your own use 24 hours a day. Each day Sharon or Brian come round to clean it. 2 bulbs blew in the bedside lights - fixed within a couple of hours. It is clean, smells fresh (never a hint of dog), is comfortable and you can relax on the large L shaped sofa and watch the large screen TV or read a book, play a game or chat. We feel totally at home. You will never find a better holiday cottage than this. (plus it's a very good price, esp with all the food and extras) And as for Joe of Sheffield, his wife's review (you can read it in the visitor book) is 'will miss this place... Sharon...defo went the extra mile...Beautiful cottage came with everything needed...we all really enjoyed our stay.' I agree with her.

    2 adults and a dog. Lovely cottage, great contained garden that the dog loved. Everything you need was here, kitchen has everything needed. Spotlessly clean and the hot tub was lovely after lots of walking!! I couldn’t recommend this cottage any higher, if only I could score it 11.

    Wonderful stay at the Sunday School as a group of 4 adults. We had a nice walk around the Goss Moor Trail, which the dogs loved but my legs didn't appreciate as much. However, the hot tub helped! Sharon is also a wonderful host, very attentive and lovely. We will definitely look to stay again.

    All the photos look great. Sharron is nice and welcoming. Arrived, no parking in the carport as shown on photos and parking is very tight for large cars. The beds in all the rooms are not the same as the ones in the photos, metal frames. On arrival we was told the heating was broken and only comes on 6 times a day (we went for new year week!) one of the 6 times being in middle of the night. Roasting and living room was cold from 6-10pm in the evening had to your a blanket!! Then to be woken up by barking dogs at 6am (neighbours or owners) to top it off it smelt lovely on arrival but after a day it smelt of dogs!! Nice touch with bacon and sausage in the fridge and fresh duck eggs! But would not stop here again. Very small fridge, and the hot tub is not very well lit on the garden area. Children cannot go in the hot tub for insurance purposes. Kitchen is very dark to work in and the cooker hood light did not work. Check out was very promt... hostess approached at 10am on the dot as we left.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to write a Reevoo and in the guest book but this seems to be contradictive. I am so sorry you feel this way; I wish you had raised your concerns to myself to solve your issues directly whilst you were here to make your stay more comfortable. I am glad you liked the bacon, sausages, duck eggs, milk, baked beans, cereal, butter, baps, afternoon tea, chocolate, fruit, biscuits, and wine of the welcome pack. The beds have been changed to be kept up to our high standards to be able to keep getting the customer’s choice award 4 years running. The heating is in full working order and the bulbs have been replaced on the cooker hood. Children can use the hot tub with supervision at all times; it is the infants that are not allowed. The garden area has a diffused glass on it due to the evening wildlife; as we are rural the area has working dogs, most guests enjoy the sounds of rural life and watching bats and birds of prey. There is ample parking (if your driving skills are compromised we are more than happy to change the arrangements). I do like to come and say goodbye and thank you for staying with us. We apologise that this is at 10am but this is your contractual time upon leaving, but I do not mind if this is later.

    This is our 3rd time at the Sunday School and we’ve already booked for the future. We have stayed in many cottages, but this is the best by far and nothing will ever match it. It is so cosy and warm, and has everything you need to ensure your stay is home from home. I don’t know what Joe from Sheffield is on about, I’d much prefer to have updated comfortable furniture! Also there is plenty of parking space for our large 4x4. The hot tub is amazing ( we’ve sat in it at midnight gazing at the stars) and the welcome pack is the best we’ve ever received- lovely locally sourced food. Thank you so much Sharon and Brian for providing such a lovely, relaxing place to stay. We will be back many more times

    Once again an absolutely fantastic stay at The Sunday School. Quite definitely the best holiday cottage we’ve had the pleasure of staying in, all other cottages don’t even come close to this one. Sharon Is so thoughtful and provides everything you need and more so very generous. We’ve been going for the last four years and we’re looking forward to our fifth visit in September. A beautiful stay every time.

Absolutely gorgeous, the hosts couldn’t do enough and the cottage was of a fantastic standard , the welcome packages for us and the dogs were a lovely touch after a long drive. We were lucky the weathers was gorgeous but it wouldn’t have mattered as the cottage is so homely and cosy. Will definitely go back but it’s already pretty full for next year and no surprise!

    This is my second visit to The Sunday School, the first was a weekend break with a friend, I liked it so much that this time was a week, and I brought my husband! So,where to start? The owners - smashing people, friendly and considerate and go above and beyond to make your stay as perfect as possible. The welcome hamper will amaze you, we had afternoon tea for 2 days, breakfast similar, as well as various other treats and goodies that made our evenings special. :-) The property itself is beautiful, and very well appointed. The house is spacious, light and airy - but cosy too. I've no idea why somebody said the kitchen was dark? That's what the lights are for...turn them on! I've cooked here, and found no problems at all. There is a massive cooker, plenty of pots/pans and utensils, a handy dishwasher, washer/dryer (very handy for the hot tub towels) and of course a fridge/freezer. For the nights you don't want to cook there are plenty of options up on the notice board - we used a local Chinese delivery twice, and the food was hot, excellent quality and came when expected, we definitely recommend them! The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of choice of pillows, and snuggly bedding. The sofas are ideal for relaxing with a film - and there are plenty of entertainment options too, for cosy evenings in. And on the relaxation note - we LOVE the hot tub!!! Follow a couple of simple rules - no glasses (alternative drinks containters are provided) and shower beforehand to remove any creams and oils, so as to keep the water sparkling, easy peasy, lie back, and be massaged and enjoy the evenings! The parking - we drove my husband's A6 in fine, although it was far too long to do a 3 point turn, but when I stayed, with my average size hatchback, I managed to turn it and drive out with zero issues. So, if you have a very long saloon or estate I guess you might need to reverse straight in or out, rather than turn. But an average hatchback type, no problems. The locale - it's a hamlet, so anyone expecting a bustling metropolis and nightlife other than bats and owls clearly hasn't read about the area. We went for the peace and quiet that comes with backing onto a nature reserve, and with that, the fact we could order a takeaway was an unexpected bonus. :-) But there are pubs and shops not too far away at all, and anything you need, just ask Sharon and Brian, and they'll have the answer. I really can't recommend The Sunday School highly enough, and we've already booked for another week next year. :-)
