  • "Wonderful holiday."

    So clean and comfortable. Very well appointed and warm. Lovely log fire was a real plus for that hygge vibe. Would definitely go again. Only comment that may help those with mobility issues is that ‘technically’ you can’t park right next to property although we did and it wasn’t a problem. Also it is at the bottom of the hill so garden was too waterlogged to let dog out due to muddy paws although front area could be used for the doggy calls of nature. Overall though - just wonderful.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the property and thank you for your comments. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our fortnight in the cottage."

    It was clean, comfortable and spacious. We were impressed by the quality appliances, all of which were Miele. However, we were bemused that there were no spare toilet rolls and only one bin liner was provided for a two week stay Also, we had driven a long way and we were disappointed not to find a Welcome pack on arrival. The weather was good so we were out and about. The cottage and surroundings were beautifully peaceful and for anyone wanting to get away from noise and people it is the ideal place

    Thank you for your kind comments, we look forward to welcoming you back very soon John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "I would never recommend this Cottage to anybody it is advertised as dog friendly with enclosed garden seating area and barbecue area but it is full of slugs and any time you let your dogs outside they came in they came in covered in baby slugs,even though we had fantastic weather it never dried out there."

    It never got any sunshine so we had to sit at the bottom of the drive to get any sunshine and keep the dogs slug free. The rug at the side of the double bed caused a accident because no matter how much you pulled it flat it creased up and when my wife got up in the night to go to toilet she triped any fell head first into the radiator and chair next to it finished up with a large lump on her forehead two black eyes abadly strained wrist and bruises all down her chest and I have photos of her.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay. We're very sorry that you had to experience these issues during your visit, we have since removed the rug from the property and hope she is okay! Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays. We hope to welcome you back to north Cornwall in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

  • "This is our third stay at the complex but the first stay in Mill Pond Cottage."

    The cottage is spacious and well equipped. We particularly liked having both a washing machine and dryer as this was the second cottage in our two week stay so needed to easily refresh clothes. We marked cleanliness at the lowest rating as there were significant dog hairs from a previous visitor and the property hadn't been cleaned to remove these. Our children are allergic to dogs; as a consequence it required us to both leave windows open at night and apply allergy medicine sprays to our youngest on several nights. If this had been marginally worse we would have had to vacate and finish our holiday early. Other comments: no outside hose for wetsuits, no clothes line we could see, no decent wine glasses, toaster broken as need to hold down to operate.

    Thank you for your feedback from your stay at Mill Pond. We are pleased you enjoyed the space the cottage offered as well as it being well-equipped. We are sorry if the cleaning was not to the standards expected and would have gladly re-attended had we know about this. However, we do apologise this was not picked up on changeover. We do hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Lovely hidden away spot."

    The owners have really thought of everything.... never thought I would see Miele white goods in a holiday let! The only very slight problem I had was me failing to work out how to get hot water out of the kitchen / bathroom tap - didn't matter to me tho. Also there were no wine glasses.... so I left some!

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Mill Pond and we would love to welcome you back anytime in the future! Our apologies for the lack of glasses but thank you for leaving some! - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We have previously stayed at another barn in this complex so already had an idea of what to expect."

    Having read some of the reviews about cleanliness were a little concerned, however the property was clean and well maintained so no complaints from us. The only moan we have is there was a gap in the fence in the back garden (we have a dog) which had a drop and ditch the other side and meant there was access to a very deep pond (hence the name) covered in algae which is life threatening to a dog. Luckily our dog is a large breed and we blocked the gap with the garden table, this does need addressing. Only other moan is sofa is very low so anyone older will find it difficult to get up from. Had an enjoyable stay property is ideal for exploring local coastline, lovely quiet location would definitely use again.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on Mill Pond. Our Maintenance team are aware of the Fence issue and are awaiting the materials to fix this. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to inviting you back to North Cornwall very soon. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Lovely 'hidden away' comfortable cottage."

    3 issues: - no welcome / information book - garden fence incomplete, so not dog friendly - only obvious dog walking from the cottage was along the local roads

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It's great to hear that you had such a fabulous stay at Mill Pond and had the perfect base to explore the North Cornish coastline from! Unfortunately the information folders got took out due to Covid-19 we are now putting these back into the properties. I have asked maintenance to look into the incomplete fence.

  • "It was on the whole a very nice stay in a comfortable and convenient cottage."

    The only two comments I'd make was that the kitchen wasn't very clean (there was food stuck on several plates and the kitchen surface was very greasy) and the internet password I'd been emailed was wrong, which wasa bit of a problem - Ian managed to get me the right password the next day and checked it all worked and was geberally very helpful.

  • "I was completely miss-led by your advertisement for Mill Pond."

    You made it clear in your listing that this cottage comes with WiFi. The fact that we arrived for our two week stay and WiFi was NOT installed in the Cottage has made me very upset. It rained our entire first week and with two kids under 8 we expected what we had paid for (WiFi). I have had to do ALL the chasing to rectify this (BT turned up at 08:00 on a Friday, seven days into our stay) making several phones call from up the lane as the Cottage has no reception in it. John Bray staff (Jess/Penny) promised return calls and also to compensate us for an entire week without the internet. So far I am yet to receive any said compensation. It seems that actually if you read the small print your contract is with the Landlord of the house and NOT John Bray (TBC). As a result it is easy for them to now act as the middle man claiming they cannot get in touch with the Landlord to discuss said compensation. A VERY frustrating first week of our holiday could have been avoided with not miss-leading us on the listing AND then nip it in the bud by honoring what you said you would do and close the case.

The property

Mill Pond, a delightful, stone-fronted bungalow is situated in a sheltered, rural spot just outside St Minver, only a short journey to the local, Cornish beaches.

Homely and welcoming with original features throughout, this self-catering holiday home has been sympathetically renovated, yet still retains plenty of charm.

With an enclosed patio and garden, and private parking, four guests are welcomed, along with pets on prior arrangement.

With a barbecue provided, make the most of the warmer evenings and sit out on the patio, ready for an alfresco affair, whilst the living area is open plan, where a partially vaulted ceiling provides a great feeling of space.

The beams and stone fireplace with granite sill add to the character of this room; relax here after a busy day of adventures.

Two bedrooms are on offer, one with a double bed, and the other with twin beds, both serviced by a bathroom.

Perfectly situated to discover the best of North Cornwall, choose from the nearby beautiful beaches of Rock, Daymer Bay and Polzeath, whether you want sail, swim, or surf.

The market town of Wadebridge is a car journey away, with its interesting independent shops, cinema, and restaurants, along with being the midpoint of the Camel Trail, a level cycle track built on a former railway line.

Pay Port Isaac a visit; this historic and picturesque fishing village is a pleasure to spend a few hours, watching fishing boats unload lobster pots, and wander around narrow lanes in between tiny, whitewashed, former fishermen's cottages.

All of this awaits at Mill Pond.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
