We had the best stay at The Old Sunday School - probably one of the best stays we have had in the UK in a long time! Jay was such a great host and gave us loads of tips and information about the area, the property itself was stunning - it has been fitted out with the best of everything and designed so beautifully. The welcome basket of Cornish produce, fresh scones & beer/bubbly was an extra nice touch too!

We had a wonderful stay with our two dogs. Lisa and Jay were ever helpful and always on hand if needed. Beautiful place to stay, amazing view and immediate dog walking at hand. Loved it so much we are going back.

James was fantastic at communicating and fulfilling earlier check in. The garden is such a lovely sun trap! Over looking beautiful view. The place itself was beautiful and cool on such a hot day! everything was up to a high standard. Complimentary fizz & the lovely scones is such a lovely touch! Was very easy to get to via sat nav. Check in was very easy and smooth. Didn’t get chance to explore the area unfortunately. Only Shame it isn’t a little closer to shops? But can’t comment on much else about location/area as didn’t go explore! The bed is absolutely to die for! Very comfortable nights sleep. Would love to come back again.

About the area
The quaint former mining village of Harrowbarrow lies around 7 miles southwest of the Dartmoor town Tavistock. Harrowbarrow is a quiet and friendly village less than 2 miles from the popular and historic Kit Hill Country Park well known for its majestic views, walking trails and archaeological remains. Quality Kit Hill eateries include "The Engine House" and "Louis Teas Rooms".

Harrowbarrow's neighbouring village Metherell is a 15 minute walk away and is home to the popular and historic pub "The Carpenters Arms" which is praised by locals and visitors alike for its friendly atmosphere, decent pub food and real ale.

Dartmoor and Bodmin moor are both only a short drive away and the Sunday School is also less than an hour from both the north and south coasts of Cornwall popular with walkers, bike riders and watersports and wildlife enthusiasts alike.

St Mellion International Resort and Spa is just 3 miles away which welcomes visitors to use its spa, leisure facilities and world famous golf courses. Guests can pay to use their facilities without membership and dining is recommended at their restaurant and bar.

The popular National Trust attraction of Cothele is a few minutes down the hill as is Calstock and The Tamar Trails, and from here Morwellham Quay can be reached via will ridden and hiked woodland track.
