  • "Great, quiet and comfortable place and the end of a country lane."

    Our hosts were welcoming and friendly, yet stayed out of our hair. The home-made scones with jam and clotted cream on arrival were very good and welcome after a long day on the road! Only issue we had was that the storage heaters weren't warmed up enough when we got there, and it was pretty cold, especially the bedroom. Next day onwards was fine though. Thanks both!

  • "Lovely location, private, peaceful and comfortable stay."

    Host was friendly and helpful. Good to have spacious off road parking, garden and to feel safe. All of the latter points are very important to me when booking. Property is tired cosmetically in parts in my opinion

  • "Sarah and Richard are great hosts, the complimentary cream tea on arrival is a lovely touch."

    The Mill is a historic building with some quirky aspects. The upside down configuration gives great views over the gardens and in the heatwave we enjoyed that downstairs bedroom gave some respite from the heat. The paddock was great for exercising the dog and the grounds are well maintained. Loads of wildlife including deer. The stone flagged entrance is great for taking off walking boots and drying the dog. Although the photos make the Mill look small there is more than enough room for 2 adults. Well located for the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, Par Sands is a 10-15 min drive and dog friendly all year. Fowey is worth a visit. The only problem we had was our holiday came to an end too soon.

    Die sympathische Vermieterin hat uns auf englische Art zur Teatime mit Scones und clotted cream empfangen. Absolut ruhig gelegen und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, bietet „the Mill“ alles, was im Urlaub gebraucht wird, ein Rückzugsort im schönen Cornwall mit vielen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in der Umgebung.

    It is nestled within lovely countryside. Very tranquil and thus an ideal 'Get-Away'. For those with a dog, there is a small meadow to which you have access as well as a lovely enclosed garden. Beautiful Cornish Cream Tea waiting for us on arrival. Recommended!

  • "Interesting and unusual property in a quiet position."

    Well located for local town and walks, but also for visiting Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Charlestown Harbour, Lanhydrock etc. Friendly owners. Spacious living area, kitchen has all that is needed. Somewhat let down by the bathroom facilities which need a complete update, the shower over the bath in particular.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, set in quiet surroundings."

    A perfect place to get away from it all. The cottage had everything we needed for our week away. The garden was fenced in so didnt have to worry about the dog being in the garden. Sun loungers available to sit and enjoy the quiet. Owner very welcoming without being intrusive whilst we were there. All in all we would definitely return to the Mill when we go to Cornwall again.

  • "Lovely cottage in beautiful quiet location."

    We had a very warm welcome from Sarah. Beautifully furnished with the most comfortable bed ever. Our only negative would be that although the garden is enclosed, it's not secure for dogs as ours within minutes walked up a bank by the side of The Mill and stepped over the wall. Having said that Sarah very kindly brought our boxer back. The owners adjoining meadow was perfect for quick dog walks. We would stay their again.

The property

Loswithiel 1.4 miles.

Situated on the outskirts of Lostwithiel, in the Cornish countryside, is this superb two-storey cottage.

Inside, it has a reverse-level accommodation with an open-plan living space on the first-floor, offering a place to cosy up with your loved one in front of the television and spend the evening discussing the day's events, or enjoying a movie night with snacks prepared in the kitchen area and the woodburning stove to provide that extra bit of warmth.

Or sit at the dining room table to enjoy the far reaching views and maybe see the roe deer; or take a stroll to see the resident owls in the nest on the owner's home, you might even see them hunting over the fields!

There is a ground floor king-size bedroom, ideal for getting some much needed rest for the days ahead, and supported by a bathroom with the choice of a bath or a shower over.

Take a refreshing drink out to the enclosed garden to enjoy those far-reaching views across the open fields, whilst enjoying a spot of alfresco dining.

The Hayloft And The Mill

Loswithiel 1.4 miles. Nestled on the outskirts of the bustling town of Lostwithiel, in the Cornish countryside, are these superb, environmentally-conscious barn conversions. Resting close to the owner's farmhouse and 20 solar panels,you are well-placed for touring some of Cornwall's finest sites, including its expansive coastline. Though The Hayloft is a first-floor apartment, it has no ground floor, so you won't be disrupted by noisy neighbours and can simply enjoy this peaceful and tranquil setting. Both these properties offer spacious sitting rooms where you can look forward to relaxing and unwinding into the evening, catching up with your favourite shows, whilst the warming woodburning stove provides that extra bit of warmth during those chillier winter months. They both also offer environmentally-friendly products bought in bulk to avoid excess packaging. Discover well-equipped fitted kitchens with plenty of worktop space to prepare your meals, whilst the dining areas provide space for gatherings. Each property offers a king-size double bedroom with quality contemporary furniture for storage purposes and delightful views across the fields to wake up to each morning. Pets are allowed at The Mill due to the enclosed garden, but the owners have asked guests of The Hayloft not to bring a pet with them. Discover plenty of fields surrounding the property, ideal for dog owners to go exploring with their furry companions, leading you towards the centre of Lostwithiel, which was the medieval stannary capital of Cornwall, for its selection of traditional pubs and restaurants for that fine dining experience, as well as a choice of shops and supermarkets for picking up those last-minute essentials or enjoying a shopping spree. Travel towards the 13th century Restormel Castle, set on a romantic hilltop with far-reaching views and areas for enjoying a picnic. Discover the nearby Lost Gardens of Heligan where you can tour the breath-taking gardens and estate, also nearby is the National Trust property of Lanhydrock, dating back to the 19th century with a historic interior and surrounded by a scenic parkland. You are in reach of the beautiful and expansive coastline for accessing a number of sandy beaches for those days' sunbathing on the golden sands, swimming in the clear waters or taking the opportunity to get involved with Cornwall's favourite pastime of surfing! Or avoid traffic and take a leisurley train ride from Lostwithiel to iconic Cornish towns like Penzance, Truro and St Ives. A truly delightful base for exploring all this stunning area of Cornwall has to offer.

About the location


Bodmin 5.5 miles; Fowey 7 miles.

A delightfully peaceful country town, nestling in the Fowey river valley amid the woods and fields that characterise the area. Renowned as a centre for the antiques trade, there are several shops and dealers in the town, as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer’s market. Lanhydrock House (NT) and gardens is just 3 miles away, while the fabulous Boconnoc House, Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown, and the picturesque fishing villages of Mevagissey, Fowey and Padstow, with the famous Rick Stein restaurants, are all within easy driving distance. The tumbling Atlantic surf, long sandy beaches and dramatic coastline of the north coast, including at the renowned Newquay, make for great days out and there is also chance to enjoy river canoeing, biking, hiking and leisurely walks in this lovely area. The friendly locals also have ongoing activities, such as the raft race, the famous tug of war, Carnival week and seagull outboard motor races. The river Fowey runs from the town on its 8 mile journey through the fields and wooded valleys to the gentler southern coast, a natural paradise for those who love the sea. Centrally placed, with much to do and see in the immediate area, Lostwithiel is the perfect choice for those seeking a break away from the hectic pace of the tourist resorts.
