Miller's House description

Holiday home
Miller's House is a stone built, former miller's residence within St Nectan's Glen, a wooded valley below the hamlet of Bossiney, one mile from Tintagel in Cornwall. This cottage sleeps five people and has two bedrooms, consisting of one double with en-suite bathroom, one twin bedroom and a separate sofa bed for one child on the landing, as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with beams, exposed stonework and woodburner. To the outside of this cottage there is ample off road parking and use of a lawned sitting area with patio, furniture and a stream. Miller's House is an ideal family holiday home for exploring many places of interest.

Tintagel is dominated by the magnificent ruins of King Arthur's Castle which lie on the cliffside outside the town. The sea, secluded coves and spectacular scenery dominate the area, and a number of superb beaches, including Trebarwith Strand, are easily reached for surfing, swimming and sunbathing. The town offers pubs and restaurants and the National Trust owned Old Post Office. Walkers will love the SW coast path which goes right through Tintagel then winds its way in both directions along the cliff tops through stunning countryside, before meandering down to the water's edge. The pretty village of Boscastle with its charming quay and village pubs is 2.5 miles north, and if you venture further afield you will find the surfing resort of Bude; the wild open spaces of Bodmin Moor; the incredible biospheres of the Eden Project; Padstow and its famous restaurants, and much more.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

I have just had an absolutely wonderful week's holiday at Miller's House and I absolutely loved every minute of it. The cottage is beautiful, really charming with its' beams in the ceiling, log fire and cosy furniture. It was equipped with everything -Everything was spotlessly clean. There are good heaters and radiators in every room so the whole house is super cosy. I brought my beloved cat with me and he was welcomed with open arms and he enjoyed the garden too! And the cosy rooms! The gardens are beautiful, very extensive woodland gardens with trees, a huge lawn, a stream, and lovely walks. I really needed a week's peace and tranquility and this cottage was just perfect for that. In fact I am going to go back again in a month or so! Thankyou so much, I have had a fantastic holiday here, I love it, can't wait to go back again.

It was wonderful to stay in such a calming, lovely historic home. The views and gardens were inviting and the location was very convenient to explore the area. Our group of four adults had plenty of space for gathering or for privacy as well. Miller's House was my favourite stay through our exploration of the UK!

Liked the lovely setting and the proximity to picturesque towns and areas. Very tranquil and beautifully kept and presented surroundings. The owner was helpful and provided useful advice on beaches and places to visit. Excellent provision for the small children and the dog who accompanied us! They all loved the cosy and warm atmosphere of the cottage and settled in immediately.

The cottage is in a beautiful setting. Although shaded from the sun it is in a very tranquil area. There is great access/walks to Boscastle and Tintagel. The house is very homely and although not fancy or modern this adds to the charm. It is very clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful.

The house is comfortable and the grounds of the house were beautiful with a fantastic walk to a waterfall. The house is a few minutes from a beautiful coastal path which takes you to either Tintagel or Boscastle which are great places to have lunch after a good walk. An amazing place, I'd definitely go back and stay again!

Mr Brian

Gorgeous cottage in a fantastic location. Peaceful, beautiful - a real gem. We walked nearly everywhere - up the valley, down the valley, along the coast path, to the beach, to Tintagel. Only took the car out when we ventured further afield - Boscastle, Pencarrow, Port Isaac, Trebarwith. Stunning scenery, fantastic weather - I have never been sunburnt in March in England before! We will definitely be back no matter what the weather.

We enjoyed our holidays and would love to come back some day. Cosy Cottage and a lovely place.
Mrs Baden
November 2007
We had never previously stayed in North Cornwall and we very much enjoyed the area as a whole and in particular, the towns of Tintagel and Boscastle were both lovely and had much to offer. We enjoyed the peace, the scenery, cliffside walks, small enclosed beaches, places to eat, shops and tranquility of the place. The people were delightful and so friendly and the landscapes were truly spectacular. Many of the pubs we ate in were child friendly and gave us an extremely warm welcome and excellent food. We plan to return to this part of Cornwall in March 2008 as it is a lovely location for an out of season family holiday with plenty to offer young children.

One of the most comfortable, well equipped properties in which we have stayed. Ideal for walkers, dogs and families. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even though the weather was poor.
Mr Mrs Birtles

The location of Mill House was ideal. The whole setting was a superb escape from everyday life. The gardens were tranquil and had the added bonus of a stream running through. Much amusement for children to enjoy water safely ample play/ rest areas in the garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mill House. It is an ideal holiday let for families, who enjoy the countryside. We have already recommended the house to family and friends.

Millers cottage was set well off the road in beautiful grounds which were well maintained and quiet. The property was also well maintained, clean and comfortable Dog walking was a pleasure through the woods after leaving the private gardens of Millers cottage.Easy access to the local towns and coast.All in all, a lovely place to stay for a relaxing holiday.
January 2012
This is a comfortable and cosy house although the fittings are a little dated. However, if you are looking for a peaceful location with easy access to the superb coastal walks and scenery then this is an excellent choice.
August 2013
Met by the owner and soon made ourselves comfortable. Our dog was also welcome. Very quietly situated just outside Tintagel. No mobile phone reception in the valley though. Cottage would have been better if both rooms were en-suite (e.g. door knocked through from bedroom into bathroom rather than having to come out onto landing), also a bit inconvenient at times to have the wardrobe and drawers on the landing. Other than that a fantastic holiday and really not long enough. Loved visiting all the King arthur connected places. Ideal for visiting both north and south coasts of Cornwall. Would definately stay again. Grounds to cottage were superb and peaceful.
December 2009
The cottage location is in a beautiful valley and as sheltered as possible from the prevailing weather conditions. It has access to a wonderful garden complete with fast flowing stream and the shrubs and flowers complement the natural surroundings. The cottage itself is very pleasant to stay in - but do be prepared to use the splendid wood burning stove in winter. This is great fun and the owners provided the fuel from the trees in the garden and we didn't have to cut the logs up ourselves! The dog particularly enjoyed himself with the surrounding walks and learnt how to go up and down the cliff paths and only fell in the stream once. Stout footwear is sensible as the going can be rough on some of the cliff paths. For those with mobility difficulties the National Trust have provided a level path on the cliff top to the south west of Tintagel castle which can be accessed via the road to the church. The views are wonderful here. Tintagel and Boscastle are the nearest locations and are more than adequate for shopping and meals but do remember that Cornwall is very seasonal so a lot of surrounding attractions are only open from Easter to October.
