Millstream Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Millstream is one such cottage, set on the banks of the millstream and with its own delightful patio. This little cottage's living area is unique, a circular studio with everything designed for utmost convenience in an open plan area. Walk through the bluebell woods, laze on the shoreline at the bottom of the valley, explore the nearby coastline, surf the waves or take a trip further afield to the Eden Project. Halgabron Mill is surrounded by 20 acres of woodland and garden, and is both beautiful and extraordinarily tranquil.

The legends and myths of King Arthur and the Round Table are still potent in the town of Tintagel in North Cornwall – and the cliffs just beyond are dominated by the jagged ruins of King Arthur's Castle. Visitors will love the romance of this beautiful area, with its surfer seas, dramatic cliffs and hidden coves. The town itself is pretty and welcoming, with well-run pubs, restaurants and specialist shops. The South West Coast Path can be followed in both north and south directions,and northwards leads to the charming village of Boscastle after a couple of miles. Trebarwith Strand is one of a number of good beaches near Tintagel and 15 miles away is the popular surfing resort of Bude. Also within reach are such local attractions as the Camel Estuary, the Eden Project and Bodmin Moor, which has a unique atmosphere and one of Britain's spookiest pubs – the Jamaica Inn.

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 cottage was a delightful gem and the location was excellent with great access to fantastic coastal walks and other quaint villages. Scenery is amazing with delightful hidden coves.

Really loved the peaceful location of this property and the stunning scenery. The gardens were beautiful and it was a real place of peace and reflection. Loved sitting out one night listening to the stream going by and watching the bats, and a tawny owl coming down to land on the roof next to us before swooping down the stream out to sea was stunning.

Very quiet and peaceful, and a very picturesque setting. An ideal setting for artists, and for anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

This is the cutest little cottage for 2 people who like to get cosy. Set in idyllic woodland, it has a secluded sun-trap patio behind. From the delightful garden, you can walk through to a footpath which joins the main path to St Nectan's Glen. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The whole area is stunning and, after a full day of coastal footpath walking, it was a privilege to return to a tranquil and beautiful setting.

Exactly what it says on the tin, its rustic charm and fairy glen location is charming. The owner was very helpful and it had everything we needed, even WiFi! Perfect for a close to nature romantic break.

The cottage was situated in beautiful surroundings. The private drive leading to the Halgabron Mill cottages ensured peace and quiet. The woodland walk, accessed through the owners property to St. Nectan's Glen was lovely. A beautiful waterfall can be observed for free at Bossiney Cove, just a 10 minute walk from Millstream Cottage! Overall my wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage and the picturesque coastal walks, so much so that we have already provisionally booked the same cottage for a week in early June next year.

Peace and tranquility in lovely accommodation for two with stream running at side and in beautiful surroundings, couldn't fault it.

Location is fabulous, very peaceful, easy access to the seaside and forest. The stream at the back of the property was particularly appreciated, great background noise!

It was in a peaceful location and having the water flowing outside the cottage was a lovely feature to the place. The owner was very accommodating and friendly.

The cottage and surrounding were very peaceful and beautiful.
Mrs Hughes
July 2012
This really is a charming little cottage. The sofa-bed was more comfortable than our own bed at home. The location next to the millstream is lovely and it is well situated for walks to Tintagel. The owner/manager was very friendly.
Mr Ingram

A very good base from which to access Cornwall's attractions and scenery.

Gorgeous location, peaceful and tranquil and would highly recommend this property.
Mrs Osborne-Smith
August 2010
The picture and description suggested the property would be lovely but it exceeded all expectations. The house itself was charming and beautiful, the sea was a short and interesting walk away as was a spiritual waterfall with a meditation area and Tintagel itself with a very impressive castle ruin. Absolutely perfect for a romantic break, thank you.

The idyllic setting in conjunction with the relative closeness to the village and the coast.
Mr Hoch

We loved the idyllic seclusion of that cosy mill with only the sounds of the stream in the background. One could not imagine that the sea was so close, but only a quarter of a mile away the impressive cliffs begin ...
Mrs Eden

The owner welcomed us on arrival. The cottage was smaller than we anticipated but we soon got used to it and enjoyed our stay. The grounds were absolutely wonderful and what made them even better was the fine weather we had throughout our stay.

It was a lovely restful place. Enjoyed every minute of it.

A wonderful holiday

The property was exactly what we were looking for ie. private, romantic and positioned in a beautiful valley.
Mr Giddings
July 2008
We found the setting and description of the cottage to be accurate and not overstated. We had an enjoyable holiday and were very happy with the cottage accommodation.
Mrs Unger

We definitely enjoyed our time in the cottage. Lovely surrounding, beautiful garden and the woods behind, everything was very well taken care off. The millstream running by gave a special touch. We will go back there.

Cleanliness and comfort are very important to us - we found both in your cottage - plus the charm - it is well organized and compact. Very good.We appreciate the personal approach of the landlord who was very helpful and welcoming.
Mr Mrs Smallpeice

We loved the very unusal style of the property (hexagonal). The area was extremely picturesque, with a babbling brook along the edge of the property. The gardens and wood were a joy to walk round, which lead onto a public footpath where you could walk through a beautiful wood where the river continued to flow.
December 2013
Lovely week in beautiful little 1 room cottage totally idyllic with gorgous surroundings. We were left to our own devices and had a much needed peaceful week. Ideally situated between Tintagel and Boscastle, we had some lovely walks too including up to St Nectans Glen.
Mrs Print
July 2006
Everything was perfect! The cottage was very well-equipped and comfortable, the owner was helpful, but not intrusive, and the surrounding gardens, stream, glen and walks from the doorstep were beautiful. We had a lovely holiday - many thanks and well done both to the owner and to Sykes!

There were so many things to see, however, we didnt feel pressured into having to fit everything in.
Miss Natar
December 2004
There is a wonderful walk that runs alongside the stream directly from the cottage. The gardens and surrounding area were beautiful and so peaceful. Also, the attractions that we went to see were fairly close by, e.g. the Eden Project
June 2015
Exactly what you expect, Rustic little cottage very cosy and clean ideal for twoo on a romantic break. Absolutely loved this place and its location in a little glen alongside a babbling brook, waterfall and pretty gardens. Had all we needed and wifi!
Miss Stockley

Gorgeous location. Rocky valley and coastal path walks were amazing. Excellent food and service at local restaurant, Trevillet Mill.
December 2009
The place was how described and exactly what we were looking for. Surrounded by the gardens and the woods, and also being close to Tintagel, the Coastal path and other nice places to visit, we really enjoyed our stay.
December 2009
A brilliant place to stay. The enclosed setting is superb. I am Disabled and found everything close at hand and user friendly. The only negative point is the Fridge, or lack of freezer space. The out buildings have a washing machine and T/Dryer and there is more than enough room for a small chst freezer. That would be excellent and would not have to worry about buying fresh meat etc., Storage would not be a problem as there is only Mill stream Cottage and two other houses. I can't see a problem with putting ones food in a bag/box with ones name on it. Apart from that then the cottage is wonderful. A pure haven of peacefullness and tranquility. We love it. Local amenities are good.

Easy walking distance to St. Nectans Glen , Rocky Valley and Bossiney Haven made this quaint little Millhouse Idyllic for a fuss free break. The towns of Boscastle and Tintagel were only a few mins. away.

This lovely cottage is prefect for couples wanting a romantic getaway.
December 2009
We already filled in a reveiw and sent it by post.But here we go again. The service we received was very good. We loved the home and the location was beautiful. The fridge was too small and we would have liked more storagespace for shoes and wardrobe. The bed was sagging in the middle. We loved the small round little cottage and its situation. The service was good and we would recommend the cottage to our friends.
December 2009
This little mill is a unique and cosy place to stay. The surrounding woods, the great garden, the little stream and the nearby sea create a beautiful atmosphere. Everything is very well prepared and lovely.
