The Old School

Sleeps: 2

Families working the Paradise scheelite mine used this tiny historic school in the early 1900s. It's small on space with plenty of old-school charm.

Perfect as a couples retreat, the building consists of a single room with a double bed, a couple of armchairs beside the open fire and superb views. Water is supplied via an outside tap and all cooking is done on the outside BBQ /gas cooker.

Soak up the morning sun while admiring the view of Mount Earnslaw from this little gem. The Old School is a real delight.
