We loved our stay at the mill. It’s absolutely beautiful. We loved sitting outside listening to the burbling stream and hearing the wild pheasants call to each other. The property is well kitted out for self catering and we were all very comfortable. Anne-Marie manages the property well.
Very nice country house
The house is very nice and was converted from an functional mill. The garden is beautiful and the kids loved the nearby creek and tree swing. 5 stars!
Great property and relaxing location

The glorious beaches of the Camel Estuary (Rock, Daymer Bay, Polzeath) are a 15 min drive away. As well as sailing, windsurfing & waterskiing, Rock offers opportunities for fishing, diving & wildlife excursions. Padstow is a 5 min ferry ride. Daymer Bay is the quintessential family beach; a huge expanse of fine, clean sand. Polzeath, at the mouth of the Estuary, is much renowned for its surfing. A stunning beach bounded on either side at low tide by scores of rock-pools teeming with sea-life.
Newquay Airport is 16.5 miles away.
Bodmin Parkway Rail Station is 14 miles away.
Use of a car is recommended due to the rural location of the Mill. However, there are very good taxi services in the area.

Two miles away at St Endellion, there is the splendid Trevathan Farm shop/ cafe/restaurant with outdoor play area. The picturesque villages of Chapel Amble and St Kew are within walking distance (1 mile and 1½ miles respectively). Both have pubs serving excellent local food and ales. Chapel Amble also has a small shop & Post Office. St Kew has a beautiful 15th century church. The nearest town is Wadebridge, set on the River Camel, with an excellent array of shops, pubs, restaurants, banks, supermarkets, bus station, cinema, & swimming pool/leisure centre. Wadebridge is the nearest access point onto the well-known Camel Trail. From here you can follow (by bicycIe or on foot) the old railway line along the banks of the Camel to Padstow (5 miles), or, alternatively you can follow it in the opposite direction through the verdant Camel Valley to Bodmin (5 miles) and onto Wenfordbridge on the edge of Bodmin Moor (12 miles).
In Rock, the Rock Inn Pub & also The Mariners - offer arguably the best views on the Estuary and offer excellent food, & perhaps for that special occasion, the Michelin starred Nathan Outlaw's at Port Isaac may tempt you. Or, if Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant takes your fancy, hop on the ferry to Padstow; a five minute trip and you are there!
A short walk from Daymer Bay, out across the golf links, takes you to the beautiful, tranquil, 12th century church of St Enodoc where the much loved Poet Laureate Sir John Betjamen is buried.
Polzeath benefits from cafes, restaurants, gift & clothing shops selling beachwear along with surf clothing and equipment. You can also rent surf equipment as well as book surfing lessons here.
The spectacular North Cornish coastline, with its atmospheric fishing villages of Port Isaac (Doc Martin fame), Port Gaverne & Port Quin, is popular with kayakers - exploring the sea caves at high tide & the pristine secret beaches at low tide. For those wishing to join a guided expedition, trips generally commence from Port Quin.
