Few buildings can claim such a rich and diverse historical contribution to their parish community as Churston Old School House. It is a well-known and much admired house locally, which is now for the first time, available as a wonderfully relaxing place for groups of friends and families to congregate for lazy holidays, action packed short breaks and special occasions.
Churston Old School House is in fact two beautiful cottages that are side by side and they seamlessly merge into one large and very interesting dwelling, offering accommodation for ten guests across five bedrooms.
The building itself is Grade II listed and constructed of local stone in a Tudor style, it has been lovingly restored and now combines original features and much character, with practical modern conveniences. The former main classroom is now a fantastic and vast dining or games room that is more akin to a banquet hall with vaulted celing, mezzanine and a wood burner for cosy nights in.
The surrounding area is perfect and it is a country pub and dog walkers paradise. Not only do you have a highly regarded Inn on the door step, but the South West Coast Path and several renowned beaches are a pleasant stroll across the golf course. There are two enclosed private pet friendly garden areas which are also perfect for hide and seek.
A short walk from the house is the excellent Churston Farm Shop plus a garden store and popular café. The ferry to Dartmouth is a five minute drive. Lupton Manor House is an absolute gem and is within walking distance, a delightful setting for a cream tea, a peaceful walk around the grounds or perhaps a wedding!
This is a superb destination for lovers of character and history. From the solid elm doors and working bell tower, to the original school coat hooks in the entrance hall, it has personality and charm by the bucket load and will leave a lasting impression on all guests lucky enough to stay.
