  • "Really easy check in and was a home away from home, beautiful area to stay in and explore."

    I would stay again.

  • "A lovely cottage in an absolutely beautiful and tranquil setting."

    The facilities in Millers House are in keeping with the character of the building, not pristine but that makes the cottage very homely and welcoming, both myself and my daughter felt settled immediately and had a wonderful stay. Mr Evans, the owner is most friendly and helpful and a very nice host. Finding a criticism is really difficult. The only thing is, and this is such a small thing, the cooking facilities were all there and in great order but I was a little surprised there were no condiments like salt, pepper, cooking oil etc (you wouldnt think to bring it with you). It wasn't an issue as we had to go shopping for the fresh food we couldn't bring, so we simply bought that too. We left it at the property as a gift to the next occupants. As I say, it's such a small thing so it doesn't detract from our experience at all, it's such a lovely place I'm almost embarrassed to mention it. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay, I should have booked 2 weeks at least.

    The cottage was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay, it needs a little tlc and bit of an undo but for the price we all felt it was well worth it and would stay again

  • "We really enjoyed our stay!"

    It would be great if the beams in the main bathroom ceiling above the sink were filled in to stop all the black dust falling down onto the sink, and also if there were maybe some cheap salt and oil there because when we did our shop we completely forgot both of those and they are usually provided :) It would also have been nice to be able to leave some of staples we bought, like fresh milk, coffee etc, for the next guests - but we didn’t want to be charged so we took them with us. Overall an amazing stay though!! And we will definitely be back :)

  • "A very comfortable cottage in a beautiful quiet spot."

    Bedroom heating could be more efficient especially in the twin bedroom. Pity guests in the other cottages have to walk pass Miller House and look in the windows. A most enjoyable few days.

  • "Very comfortable cottage in beautiful peaceful surroundings."

    Very minor quibble was the limited outdoor seating, but since we had very little time left to sit out and chill after exploring the stunning Cornish coast in this area it was not an issue.

  • "The location is amazing, with woodland, and huge gardens that were not obvious when booking."

    As it is self catering; the utensils within kitchen need updating (chopping boards, blunt knives and peelers) and the double bed is very narrow, which would not cost much at all.

  • "This was the fourth time we’ve stayed in one of the St Nectan’s Glen properties but our first time in Miller’s House."

    We had a great time there - it’s relatively spacious, set in absolutely stunning surroundings, and given the weather was so hot during our stay, the house itself provided cool sanctuary on our return from the beach or woodland walk. We love this place! Just two simple things that need to be provided for future guests - a lamp for the lounge (we had to move the one from our bedroom) and a pizza-cutter!

  • "Lovely old Mill cottages in a woodland setting."

    Great to walk in the owners woods admiring the beautiful plants. The stream running right through the grounds made it even nicer. All round a lovely relaxing break.

  • "The cottage was in a lovely location, however on the photo it looked like a stand alone cottage when in fact it was not."

    There was a small inadequate area to sit outside at the side of the cottage. The living room was very comfortable but did not have a lamp for evening use, only ceiling lights which were. very bright. The paintwork upstairs could do with a fresh coat of paint. Parking is a little tight could be improved ie trimming bushes back.

  • "The location is lovely, the stream and park in the little valley is beautiful."

    Close footpaths and coastpaths make it an ideal location to visit the area. The cottage itself is quite rudimentary- but warm and all is there as described. There is no side lamps anywhere, only awful ceiling lamps in the living room and kitchen, which make the atmosphere cold and unagreable. Though what really disappointed us was the lack of the little things, bear minimum of making customers welcome: not a single tea or coffee bag, not a small soap to wash your hands in the bathrooms, not a small hand towel in the bathrooms, not a leaflet with maps around (only a description of a couple of footpaths closeby). We will not come again as we didn't feel comfortable.

  • "The cottage was lovely and cosy and we would highly recommend it."

    The owner lives next door and is very informative on the history of the cottages as they are very old. The cottage had everything that we needed and importantly a very comfy bed. We went for a walk in the grounds as it is in a beautiful woods and the water running through the land is lovely it leads to a waterfall well worth the walk.

  • "We always feel at home whenever we come down to Cornwall, we have made some good friends and everybody seems to welcome you."

    in October there is the dark gathering in Boscastle and we were lucky enough to experience the wonderful celebration this year and if like us you are pagan or spiritual minded, it should be a celebration not to miss. Robin is a very nice and approachable owner who will always do everything he can to make your stay enjoyable and without any problems. It is a beautiful setting no matter what time of year you go or what the weather is like. We come down 3 times a year now and have always had a fantastic time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It is like stepping into a magical land where magical people live who welcome you into their family with open arms. It will always be our second home and we will always be thankful for finding it.

  • "Was just a truly fantastic place to stay."

    It's such a beautiful cottage in a really lovely and picturesque location. It's so tranquil, and still only a short drive away from anything that you might need in Tintangel. Would also like to say a special thank you to Robin, who made us feel so welcome upon our arrival, and who went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed throughout our stay. Honestly can't recommend this place enough!!

  • "We come down three times a year now because we love it so much, the weather is always kind to us, the local people are just so welcoming, the scenery is fantastic and everything you need is within spitting distance."

    It caters for all as if you like interesting shops there is Tintagel and Boscastle, if you prefer nature's wonders there is St Nectans Glen, if you want beaches and the more commercial there's Bude and plenty of other beaches not too far away, there's plenty of local cafes, pubs and restaurant's to choose from and cover all of your dietary needs. Millers House is like a second home to us now and Robin the owner is a lovely man who will always great you with a welcoming smile and make sure you have everything you need. The world and atmosphere changes as soon as you come through the gate, the busy outside world fades into the trees, the marvellous bird song and sounds of babbling streams. You breath the fresh air in and instantly relax. We wish we could stay forever as we have made some good friends down here but as the Terminator said "we'll be back"

About the location

TINTAGEL

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.
