It really does have a unique location, nestled into the valley and directly overlooking the Valency stream. We have young boys (6 and 9) who loved pond dipping in the freshwater pond, hunting trout in the stream and taking snacks up to the treehouse. There is loads to do in the nearby area, including superb safe surfing, rock pooling, sand castles and a great cafe at Crackington Haven. The cottage is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We didn't mind the lack of wifi for a week! The bedrooms are fresh, clean and cosy. The kitchen is well equipped and has all the basics included, which saves on having to buy lots of stuff you only need in small quantities; just replace what you use up. If you like to get away from it all, if you love cosy cottages and if want to try somewhere a bit different, Anderton Mill is for you!

The house is welcoming and warm, decorated superbly with a toasty woodburner and everything you need for your stay. Boscastle is beautiful, even in the pouring rain, and we were very captivated by the whole area. Carlie is an attentive, helpful and friendly host and we felt extreamly welcome and comfortable in her home. We would have moved in if we could!
