Mill Corner - a barn conversion that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms
Fantastic location,super clean and socio pet friendly with a huge amount of extra's.Thankyou and will return.
Excellent comfy cottage suitable for families with children or adult relaxing stays.
Chose this cottage because there were parts of north Devon that we hadn’t yet explored. Easy places to get to were Bodmin Jail, The court experience And the Cornwall’s regimental museum. Port Issac, where Doc Martin is filmed, all within a short 20 minute drive. Slightly further afield Llandyrock house which is definitely a must and one of the best NT houses we have ever visited, exceptionally dog friendly. Slightly further afield there was Polperro, a picturesque village, the Eden Project, and Gardens of
Heligan. The cottage was also one of the best we have ever stayed in and would certainly recommend to friends. Very large enclosed garden for the dog, trampoline for those that have children a summer house, barbecue. There is an upstairs decking leading from the lounge so you can sit and chill out with the odd glass of wine. On arrival we were greeted with scones and clotted cream, milk in the fridge and even treats for the dogs. No effort was spared by the owner in those added little extras, even covers for the settees should the dogs be loungers. We were lucky with the weather which made it all the more enjoyable, but should it rain when you’re there, there is plenty to go see and do, or you can just stay quite happily in the cottage and chill. Would highly recommend.
Best friends Jill, And Sue plus Monty and Alfie the dogs
Lovely accommodation with everything needed for a comfortable stay
Extremely well equipped with some lovely quirky touches. We were provided with everything required for a Cornish cream tea - delicious. The beds were comfortable with lovely warm duvets. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dogs who loved the space to play.
Cosy and well equiped
Very nice and very well equipped cottage, in a beautiful rural setting, centrally located for a visit to Cornwall. Large spaces, large garden, everything perfectly in order. Recommended!
Great place, great cottage. Many thanks.
Loads of extra items left for your connivence, short drive to Bodmin.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mill Corner. The cream tea that was left for us when we arrived was so very thoughtful. Comfortable, clean and superb location for day trips out and about. Especially the Eden Project. A pub within walking distance would have been the cream on the cake.
Withiel is situated about 5 miles from Wadebridge and 15 miles from both Newquay and Padstow. The Atlantic Coast of Cornwall offers some of the most picturesque and breathtaking scenery in the country with golden sandy beaches at 25 locations within 20 miles from Mill Cottage; these include Crantock, Fistral, Perranporth, Polzeath and Watergate Bay. Most of these are patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the summer season. The coastal footpath delivers some stunning walks and incredible views through this dramatic section of coastline. Hustyns, the luxury spa and resort centre, is only 10 minutes away by car and offers day passes to the gym and swimming pool as well as a variety of beauty and spa treatments. There is also a first class restaurant. The golf courses of St Enodoc and Trevose are within easy reach.
These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the town's main industry, whereas it once used to be a major export port for the county's mining efforts as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Women's and Men's Gig Championships are held here, as is a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub tropical gardens in the centre of the town.
Neighbouring Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002, sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice, run by the National Trust and 3 miles outside of the town, is an Elizabethan manor house and garden with restricted winter opening times.
Wadebridge, once a market town, is now more widely known as being part of The Camel Trail, the cycle route out to Padstow from the depths of Bodmin Moor on the old tramway route. You can hire a bike at the start of the trail and cycle to Padstow, now famous for being home to Rick Stein's The Seafood Restaurant, amongst others which the celebrity chef owns in the town. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Stein's empire in Padstow.
The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, and is opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the Show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring. The National Trust have three properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas & Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell, famously built in a disused china clay pit.
