South Pool is certainly one of the most attractive villages in the South Hams, where you can enjoy a delicious pub meal at the well-known Millbrook Inn, walk along the nearby coastal path, launch your boat into the Salcombe estuary from the slipway in the creek and, tides permitting, do your shopping in Salcombe, enjoy a spot of fishing or simply spend the day on one of the many gorgeous beaches on this side of the estuary. Formerly the village school, and around 150 years old, The Old School is a spacious, comfortable, detached family home situated near the thirteenth century church at the top of the village with views across the village and surrounding countryside and is set in an attractive enclosed garden. The house has a lovely sunny aspect with a south facing terrace, is well insulated with full double-glazing, central heating, as well as an open fire, so it is very warm in winter which makes it ideal for both winter breaks and summer sojourns.
Entrance porch with lots of room for coats and boots. Central hallway with downstairs shower room with shower, basin and WC. Spacious attractive sitting room with three large sofas, TV, DVD, video player, radio/CD player and iPod dock. Pretty wooden fire surround with open fire, large windows and French windows to the south facing terrace and archway into study area. The roomy family kitchen/diner has a large pine table to seat up to 8, fitted units and electric cooker with ceramic hob, microwave, larder fridge and dishwasher. Access to rear lobby with large fridge/freezer and door to garden. Door from lobby into conservatory-style utility room with pulley clothes dryer, washing machine and tumble dryer and access to enclosed yard. Carpeted stairs to landing (note: the stairs and landing are open sided with fairly large spaces between rails - toddlers must be supervised).

The very pretty enclosed garden, which surrounds the house on three sides, is small, private and filled with masses of shrubs with two small areas of lawn and paths that wind around the side of the property.
