  • "It was a nice little stay, I enjoyed our stay in the cottage and it provided what we needed for the weekend."

  • "We all love this little cottage."

    Its clean and quite well equipped in a lovely peaceful setting and the owner is very nice. I do think the check in is a little late. Perhaps 4pm would be better.

  • "We had a fantastic stay here!"

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, very warm (we stayed in October), had a great shower, solid fast WiFi, great kitchen, good parking, comfy beds and great location. The garden with the river running through is absolutely stunning, it was great to have breakfast, dinner or a cup of tea at the table whilst watching and listening to the river with the window open. The waterfall at St Nectans Glenn, which you can access via a path out the back garden, is well worth a visit. The river walk up to it from the cottage is great. On the other side of the road from Mill Cottage you can walk down the river on a public footpath to the Rocky Valley which is stunning and then also puts you onto the SW Coast Path which you can then either walk to Boscastle or Tintagel which are great walks. Will definitely stay again here in the future, amazing place.

  • "We came from Germany and spent three nights in this lovely place."

    The cottage is old but offers everything you need. It is at cose distance to Tintagel. There are two amazing footpaths directly accessible: the way up to St. Nectan's Glen through a private valley with beautiful flowers, and a path to the coast passing breathtaking sights of a green valley of mills and the abrupt view of the coast.

  • "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 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.

  • "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.

  • "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.

    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.

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 5.9 miles; Wadebridge 13 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.
