Comfortable beds and lounge furniture. Wonderful views of the tide rising and ebbing on Perranporth beach and the spectacular sunsets, all viewed from the Bay window in the lounge area. It was peaceful and cosy, a good week was had by all. Thank you for the Cream Tea and supplies Caroline.

Richard is a very good, attentive host but only when you need him. The rest of the time he blends into the background, working on the farm. The Mill has been very tastefully restored with very good quality fixtures and fittings. Lovely comfy bed, which to me, with arthritis in my spine, is very important. Loved the log burner, lit it twice, took me back to my childhood. As someone else has said, the roads are a bit tricky in places, a lot of single track, twisty roads. Can thoroughly recommend the Mill and the owners.
