When we arrived we were not disappointed, the decor and the views were absolutely beautiful and we were welcomed by a friendly face who was more then happy to help with any questions we had. My only regret is that we did not stay in the other cottage which is owned my Richard and his family, which is a 1 minute walk from where we stayed. I have told friends and family about this beautiful Mill house and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quiet weekend away in a beautiful place.

Out on the beach every day with lovely walks across the coast and up to St Mawgan village. This cozy flat was ideal for a super chilled out few days spent enjoying the sureoundings and then back to curl up on the sofa to watch the tide roll in and out. Perfect.
