Tranquillity and romance are both to be found in the middle of the Cornish moorland at this beautiful old school conversion. Welcome to your very own corner of an area of outstanding, natural beauty, your Cornish holiday home is right across the road from the footpath to its namesake, Men-An-Tol, a small formation of standing stones. This property is a dream hideaway for couples wanting a complete digital detox. A real romantic escape to be enjoyed in both summer and winter. Enjoy a glass of bubbles and each other company in front of the cosy woodburner on cooler evenings or watch the sunrise whilst enjoying breakfast in one of the many seated areas in the well thought out garden.
This unusual property was built in 1882 and served as a primary school for local children from the surrounding copper mining community at the turn of the century. In the 1930's it was converted into a single family residence, it subsequently housed a renowned printmaking studio and gallery and was lovingly renovated by its present owners. It is just a stones throw away from the dramatic cliffs and beautiful beaches along the St Ives to Lands' End coastal path.

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall. The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village.
Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.
