Luxurious property in peaceful location

5 of 5
The Mill is exactly as portrayed on the Web Site. It is beautifully presented and everything is of a high quality inside. The owners are there if you need them but do not intrude, you feel welcome to share the lovely site. It is rather remote and access is via a long farm lane but that added to the charm for us. Despite its seclusion It was very easy to get to north and south towns and beaches. A perfect self-catering getaway with the feel of a boutique hotel, we would love to come again. Highly recommended.

April Cottage home from home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this beautiful cottage. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. We were very lucky with the weather and ate our breakfast on the terrace taking in the stunning view. The cottage is very cosy and furnished to a high standard. We hardly used our car because little ferries are available to Flushing and St Mawes to name but a few. We did a lovely walk around the peninsula from Flushing, stopping at Pandora's Inn for lunch on the jetty. We will definitely be back! Many thanks.
