Old Church School is situated just outside the tranquil village of Harkstead, in a sought after part of the Shotley Peninsula which is south of Ipswich. The former Victorian village school is located close to the Stour estuary and within easy reach of Harkstead beach and close to moorings in Holbrook Creek. The village has a popular public house, an active village hall, church and regular farmers market. The nearby larger village of Holbrook offers good daily facilities with a primary and secondary school, doctor's surgery, pubs and shops. The well known centre at Pin Mill is close by on the estuary of the River Orwell and further water sports are located at The Royal Harwich Yacht Club at Woolverstone and Alton Water which is also in close proximity to Harkstead. Private schooling is well catered for with Ipswich High School for girls at Woolverstone and the Royal Hospital School on the outskirts of Holbrook. A commuter can take advantage of both Manningtree and Ipswich main line stations, the journeys taking 60 and 65 minutes respectively to London's Liverpool Street Station. There is regular public transport to Ipswich and other parts of the peninsular.


Old Church School is constructed from brick under pitched decorative peg tiled roofs. Internally the house has numerous features that include an open fireplace with a fitted wood burning stove, well proportioned rooms including the superb vaulted sitting/dining room with large windows and a part exposed wooden floor and the kitchen with an oil fired Aga.
