    Plenty of space with good facilities. Jon and Carol were great hosts. The children loved being ‘on the farm’. We would definitely recommend and starting to plan our next visit already.

  • "Information on cottage at the time of booking was not accurate, it was not safe for children, a farm driveway in between house and garden, and tractor with a large spiked implement on the back was just out side the front of house, very unkempt garden area, and the house needed a deep clean."

    This could be a lovely place with some TLC Great location for visiting places and sight seeing. Disappointing

    I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at the mill I am sorry about the tractor being close to the mill but august is the harvest month even though the weather was horrible we are a working farm so I had to move hay bales . My apologies if the garden was not up to scratch we are changing the gardens around at the moment, and the weather this august is making it hard for both guest and owner to enjoy the grounds . Our cleaning standard is usually quite high as you can see from ratings so remain a little confused as to why you rated as in need of a deep clean but point taken thanks we will keep an eye out as we are pet friendly and this can sometimes be an issue with dogs coming off the beaches assuming they are the culprits ,many thanks Jonathan Property Owner

    It was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We couldn’t find anything at fault with it and would highly recommend it to others. Set in a quiet area with plenty of walks to explore, we were also allowed to feed the pigs on the farm too. It’s ideally located for exploring the area and local tourist attractions. The owners were friendly and helpful. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the mill in Nancegollan."

    It was a lovely barn conversion with nice furnishings , very cosy and comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful . A much added bonus were the goats, pigs and alpacas , I myself loved to pop over each morning with my red bucket filled with goodies for them . We enjoyed being able to walk through the fields adjoining the farm with our dogs. As a general note for Sykes as a company , this was a complex of properties, and should be advertised when booking . Will hopefully be returning soon .

    Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We do mention that there are two other holiday cottages on site, and these are bookable through us to accommodate more guests if needed! Property Owner

  • "A lovely comfortable, well equipped cottage."

    We did mention to the owner about a handle for the shower over the bath to aid the "more elderly" visitors, which he totally agreed with. Otherwise it was faultless and the owners were delightful and helpful. The animals in the fields were an added attraction. Lovely pubs and beaches nearby.

  • "Sadly we read a review from previous guests who had reported wasps/bees in the property Also the blockage of the sink in the family bathroom We noted that the owner had promised immediate attention to the sink This was not the case and just cleaning teeth was enough to fill the sink ."

    The owner told us on our arrival that there had been a problem with bees and we may see the odd one. In fact each day we had to deal with numerous bees/ wasps. As we had a dog in the party this was of great concern. Whilst the property was comfortable there were issues with drawer and wardrobe handles that stuck consistently just a little beeswax could have solved this. In the on suite shower the shower head was hanging off the wall and had to be screwed back in place We have stayed at other Sykes properties in Cornwall and always been very happy. We would not return to the Mill I’m afraid The surroundings on the farm we’re in a very neglected state .

    Thank you for your feedback. We apologise about the bees, they have been an ongoing issue this summer. We have taken professional advise on how to combat the issue but it has failed. They are now dormant and will be removed. We were not made aware of the sink at the time, had we known, we would have fixed the problem quickly and efficiently. Sorry about the issue with the wardrobes. They are good quality solid oak wardrobes but have been supplied with inferior handles that will be replaced. We will also have a look at the shower head but this was only replaced 6 weeks ago. The unkept surroundings also mentioned will be addressed too. Thanks again for your comments. Property Owner

    Reviewed by Gail5.0Oct 2021



    Thank you very much for your feedback, we’re sad to read of your disappointment. We’ve been in contact with the owners concerning your comments who have advised us of the following, which we hope is useful to you and other guests. Firstly, it is honey bees rather than wasps. The owners tried to move the nest earlier in the summer, but sadly found that they cannot do so without killing them. They therefore decided to wait until they left of their own natural causes which they thought they had done. It looks as though they’ve returned however, so the owners will look to tackle this permanently. We don’t actually advertise an enclosed garden here, so one shouldn’t be expected. Nevertheless, improvements to the layout of the garden are in the pipeline to help make it more enclosed. Finally, thank you for letting us know about the washbasin which will be checked upon immediately. We’re very sad that you wouldn’t choose to return, happily the overwhelming majority of guests (as can be seen in the feedback) feel differently and we look forward to welcoming more visitors to ‘Mill’ over the coming weeks and months.

    Our only disappointment is that we did not see any mention of the fact it was an 'upside down' house. This was lovely from the point of views and space but we brought with us a very old and less than mobile dog who had to be carried up and down the stairs several times a day. We might well have chosen elsewhere if we had realized the implications of the layout. Otherwise we would highly recommend The Mill to other holidaymakers.

About the location


Helston 3 miles; Penzance 10 miles; Hayle 11 miles; St. Ives 17 miles; Falmouth 17.5 miles.

Porthleven is one of south west Cornwall’s hidden, coastal gems, located near Helston, famous for it's annual Flora Dance Festival. Situated between Lizard Point and Land’s End, Porthleven retains the feel of a traditional Cornish fishing village, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Cornish coastline. The iconic clock tower sits on the harbour entrance and the pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants cluster around the historic picturesque inner harbour, where there is plenty of boating and marine activity. With a warren of streets lined with classic Cornish, granite cottages, an extensive beach manned with lifeguards, the chance for alfresco dining in one of a number of well reviewed restaurants, and crabbing off the harbour, there are plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy, all year round. Porthleven is building a reputation for eating out with a popular food festival established in the spring. Out of season, Porthleven has one of the best surf breaks in the country where you can sit down and get lost for hours watching the energetic surfers riding the waves. There are some fabulous hidden coves along this stretch of coastline, including Praa Sands, Poldhu Cove, and Rinsey, a magical setting for the more energetic. You may have even seen pictures of Porthleven on television, being one of the best spots in the UK for storm watching, with the crashing winter waves often being used as the backdrop to weather forecasts. Walkers will enjoy the South West Coast Path, adventuring west past Rinsey Head with spectacular views, or south across Loe Bar to Penrose Estate with it's National Trust cafe, and on to Gunwalloe Church Cove. Take a trip to the Isles of Scilly by boat or plane and marvel at the display of sub-tropical gardens at the stunning Tresco Abbey. The Eden Project near St. Austell offers an interesting day out. Porthleven is the ideal base for discovering the delights of west Cornwall and the Lizard Peninsula.
