Mill Cottage description

Holiday home
Mill Cottage is a lovely cottage within St Nectan's Glen, a wooded valley of outstanding natural beauty, one mile from Tintagel in Cornwall. This cottage sleeps four people and has two bedrooms, consisting of a four poster double and one twin bedroom with 3ft beds, as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has a well equipped kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove. Outside, this cottage has ample off road parking and shared use of a lawned garden, patio and garden furniture. Mill Cottage is ideal as a family holiday home or romantic retreat, and for those that wish to explore this part of Cornwall.

Home to the ruins of what is believed to be the legendary King Arthur's castle, the town of Tintagel is a popular holiday resort. Dominated by the stunning coastline, this area boasts numerous sandy beaches, rugged coves and breathtaking inland scenery. With Trebarwith Strand close by, water sports enthusiasts can enjoy excellent surfing opportunities, whilst for those who prefer dry land the town of Tintagel itself is home to a variety of pubs and restaurants as well as the National Trust property 'The Old Post Office'. Running through the town and winding its way along the cliff top is the SW Coast Path, which covers routes along the sea front as well as through dramatic countryside. Also in the region is the wonderful village of Boscastle, which boasts a quaint quay and plenty of village pubs.

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.

The owner was very welcoming and left us to enjoy our holiday but was there if we needed anything. Would definitely stay here again if holidaying in this area and would recommend the cottage.

The cottage is situated in a small complex of accommodation beside a stream and surrounded by woodland. This idyllic setting sets the tone for a relaxing holiday in a special place. The cottage overlooks the gardens which lead to the walk through the woods up to a waterfall some 40 minutes away.

The beautiful surroundings, and peacefulness. We could just walk out of the wonderful cottage and straight up to St Nectan's Glen to the waterfall or across the road to Rocky Valley where you can see the rugged coast line. The best place ever when you need a relaxing break. Thank you

The beautiful setting was by far the best feature of the cottage. Overlooking the mill stream was idyllic. The garden was lovely and being able to walk out into the woodland was amazing. The owner was very nice. Everything we needed was there and the beds were comfortable.

Mr Dunkerley

The cottage was in a wonderful location and the stream running through the property looks delightful. A great deal of effort has gone into the preparation of the gardens and blends in perfectly with the woods that are adjacent to the property. It has good access to the local public footpaths and the wildlife in the area is quite diverse. The cottage had plenty of charm, we would certainly return and not hesitate to recommend.

The sound of the mill stream flowing past the cottage also makes it very special and it is an ideal place to recharge your batteries. The cottage itself is very warm and welcoming, with a lovely homely atmosphere and I cannot wait for my next visit!

Our stay at Mill Cottage was superb and we would not hesitate to reccommend it. The location is stunning, with lovely walks all around and the villages of Boscastle and Tintagel are within easy reach. The service we received was excellent, with a warm welcome on arrival. We particularly loved the peace and quiet and the walk up to St Nectan's Kieve is beautiful, with the reward of the amazing and stunning waterfall en route. We cannot wait to return!

What a fantastic property! Quiet, beautiful surroundings, trickling stream and a log fire. Who could ask for more? We have had a wonderful week and feel well rested and very relaxed. The property is clean and the kitchen well equipped. The owner was very helpful although we didn't see much of him. Lots of excellent walking in the surrounding area and beaches close by. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much!

The cottage, the location, the welcome were excellent. To see beautiful scenery you do not need a car, step out of the front door and you are there. The walks from the cottage are superb. We hope to return in the near future.
January 2011
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at The Mill House. The setting was memorable to say the least. The open fire and stream outside the lounge window will stay with us for a long time. We would recommend this location without hesitation.
December 2009
Although our stay was spoilt by the weather our stay overall was good. The accomadation was of a good standard and clean and the location was excellent and with better weather it would have been have great to make more use of the gardens and gorgeous free flowing stream that runs down the side of the cottage. The cottage is situated in extrememly quiet location just out of Tintagel but a walk over the hills sees you in tintagel for the local pubs. We travelled around from our location to other places in Cornwall and found them easy to get to and the return was like wise. We went with our two children then 15 13 and despite the weather.
