Halgabron Mill

Tintagel 1 mile. This one time corn mill is situated in atmospheric St Nectan’s Glen, a densely wooded valley and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, sat between the villages of Tintagel and Boscastle. Set in 20 acres of garden and woodland, the cottages have been converted from the former mill buildings and millworkers’ homes - each individually designed to retain their character. Visitors will enjoy the woodland, lawns and sitting areas next to the old mill stream. The perfect base for a restful holiday!

    • “On seeing the cottage for the first time it looked delightful. The owner, Roger, gave us a warm welcome and was most helpful. The cottage is small but has lots of charm, it is a shame that the weather wasn't kinder enabling us to sit in the lovely patio. The only down side was the shower wasn't very strong but that was no real problem. We walked through one of the gardens to St Nectan's Glen, the going was harder due to the rain but we came to a café and had a welcome cuppa. We then paid £7.00 to go down to the waterfall, we were the only ones there and it was a place of such peace and calm we thought the money was well spent. There is another long walk from the cottage through Rocky Valley, so glad we did it. The walk to the nearest restaurant is not one I would like to do in the evening, we felt that a car was needed. We had to come home early for personal reasons but we have many happy memories and photos of our holiday in the little cottage.”

    • “We already filled in a reveiw and sent it by post.But here we go again. The service we received was very good. We loved the home and the location was beautiful. The fridge was too small and we would have liked more storagespace for shoes and wardrobe. The bed was sagging in the middle. We loved the small round little cottage and its situation. The service was good and we would recommend the cottage to our friends.”

    • “Magical”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A brilliant place to stay. The enclosed setting is superb. I am Disabled and found everything close at hand and user friendly. The only negative point is the Fridge, or lack of freezer space. The out buildings have a washing machine and T/Dryer and there is more than enough room for a small chst freezer. That would be excellent and would not have to worry about buying fresh meat etc., Storage would not be a problem as there is only Mill stream Cottage and two other houses. I can't see a problem with putting ones food in a bag/box with ones name on it. Apart from that then the cottage is wonderful. A pure haven of peacefullness and tranquility. We love it. Local amenities are good.”

    • “Exactly what it says on the tin, its rustic charm and fairy glen location is charming. The owner was very helpful and it had everything we needed, even WiFi! Perfect for a close to nature romantic break.”

    Mr Burden, Biggleswade, June 2015

    • “This is the cutest little cottage for 2 people who like to get cosy. Set in idyllic woodland, it has a secluded sun-trap patio behind. From the delightful garden, you can walk through to a footpath which joins the main path to St Nectan's Glen. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The whole area is stunning and, after a full day of coastal footpath walking, it was a privilege to return to a tranquil and beautiful setting.”

    Ms Whiteside, Salisbury, April 2015

    • “Very quiet and peaceful, and a very picturesque setting. An ideal setting for artists, and for anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.”

About the location


Camelford 6 miles; Wadebridge 12 miles.

Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, whose ruins dominate the cliffside just outside the village, is a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. The surrounding area is dominated by the sea, rocky coves and stunning scenery. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. Tintagel has several pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must. For the energetic, the SW Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions it winds its way along the cliffs and down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and in 2.5 miles is the beautiful village of Boscastle with its quaint quay and village pubs for refreshment. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude, with their resort attractions, while the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Padstow and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive.
