  • "Nice cosy cottage, with lovely stream running by and pretty garden."

    A good position for beaches. Very clean.

  • "The cottage on the outside is beautiful."

    Unfortunately on the inside this is not the case. Cottage is very tired looking it looks as if it has not had a thing done to it in a long while. Bed in main room not very comfortable. Bathroom is very tired indeed shower also leaks. Parking is a nightmare spaces not big enough to accommodate the cars. Had to park right next to bins not very pleasent avoiding wasp and flies would be better if bins were elsewhere or do not appoint a parking space here. Such a shame the area is beautiful and cottage looks externally iddylic. Just a shame the inside does not reflect the outside.

  • "A lovely spotlessly clean and cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings."

    Kitchen well equipped but we struggled to get the grill to operate, as well as the heated towel rail in the bathroom, but minor details. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return in the future.

  • "Fantastic location for us."

    Very friendly and helpful owner on site. Great views from the cottage [when it wasn't raining!] Very much enjoyed our stay, thanks. Regarding the technology: Very small TV[not our priority, but simple to improve] DAB radio did not work for us. Did not try the other 'boxes'. Wiring, plugs, sockets etc around the TV could and should be sorted out.

  • "The cottage is in a beautiful location, including immaculate grounds and a mill stream running alongside."

    The property itself is neatly presented although some of the fixtures/furnishings were a little dated. It is well located to walk to Bossiney Haven and the SW coast path.

    Wonderful base for our holiday! Can’t recommend highly enough. We WILL use Mill Cottage again...and again!

  • "Maybe property needs a bit of an upgrade, seemed a bit dated, but that should not detract from it’s position in a quiet private area."

    Lovely setting, stream going around cottage and a walk through the grounds takes you to join the path to St Nectan Glen and if a walker, linking up to paths to Rocky Valley and the south west coast path where you can easily walk to Boscastle one way or Tintagel the other. The owner was very approachable and helpful. The acid test would be, would we use this cottage again if we were to visit the area again, of course we would, lovely base.

    The house and grounds are magical and serene, a perfect retreat from busy days out in port towns. The owner is warm and cordial and very helpful with local knowledge.

  • "It is a lovely place in a very pretty & tranquil location."

    No frills particularly but very homely and comfortable from the first moment you step through the door. Perfect as a base to explore across North Cornwall & with some lovely walking straight out of the door too. Sitting with a cuppa or glass of wine watching and listening to the stream tinkle past is perfect for letting go of the cares of the world. Practicalities: There's ample parking, everything in the kitchen works, there's a drawer full of ideas where to go & a nice range of books and some games to keep you entertained. The TV is freesat and has plenty of channels to go at also, but if you can't live without you smartphone, then you may get a bit jittery, phone signal is pretty well non existent inside the solid stone walls and the free wi-fi isn't up to much, though with the nice eateries, family & pet friendly pubs and glorious coastline scenery so close, you'll soon forget such first world niggles.

  • "Magical setting, the woods and sound of the stream just dissolves any stress."

    Beautiful landscaped garden that blends perfectly with the wilder side of nature. The cottage exceeded my expectations, well supplied with everything one needs (even a hot water bottle and torch). I had a very comfortable stay and the owner of the property was so helpful and informative. 10/10 Definitely recommend a visit.

    All you need for a good holiday in a great location. Very friendly owner. All info given by Sykes was spot on. It might be handy to make it very clear in the final info that no towels or tea towels are provided. I had forgotten, but uckily the owner reminds you when you ring him for last arrangements! 10 out of 10 for us for this holiday!

The property

Tintagel 1 mile.

With delightful views over the millstream to the gardens and woods beyond, this cosy cottage with its ornate entrance way, was once part of Halgabron Corn Mill.

Walk through the woods, savour the surroundings or just sit in the garden.

The atmosphere is intoxicating.

The perfect base for a restful holiday in a beautiful part of Cornwall.

Furnished to a good standard, the owner lives in the adjoining cottage.

Note: This property can be booked with Refs. 980, 982 and 983, together they sleep 13.

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!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
