Further details indoors:
Gooseham Mill House is located on the Cornwall/Devon border in a beautiful wooded valley just a mile from the sea in the middle of the Marsland Nature Reserve, which is well known for its flora and fauna. With the gentle stream meandering through the garden, start in Cornwall and walk over the bridge to be in Devon. Stroll along winding footpaths for a mile and you will find the secluded beaches of Marsland Mouth and Welcombe on the Atlantic Heritage Coast.
Please visit our website for a further selection of photographs showing the stunning location and amazing garden with a lovingly tended vegetable garden, the produce of which all guests are invited to use.
Further details outdoors:
The fantastic garden also has a well maintained vegetable garden. The produce is for the use of guests during their stay and the gardener will advise on what is ready. Outdoor table tennis, badminton, croquet and basketball net.
The West Country / Cornwall region
Situated in the valley in the Marsland Nature Reserve. Dartmoor is within a short distance and Exmoor a little further afield. The bathing and surfing beaches of North Cornwall are within walking distance along the local paths. There are several National Trust properties in the vicinity and the house is perfectly placed as a base for exploring the many attractions both cultural and historical in the area. Bideford is a lovely little market town and the main town of Bude lies about ten miles away.
Widemouth Bay is considered one of the best surfing beaches in the area and we can arrange lessons for beginners and improvers. Bude has two superb beaches, Summerleaze and Crooklets, both ideal for bathing and surfing and Bude has one of the few remaining sea pools in the country which is perfect for youngsters when the waves are a little fierce. Lifeguards patrol most beaches and the pool throughouth the summer months. There are outdoor pursuit centres nearby, tennis, squash, horseriding, bowls and a gym in the town.
There are many National Trust properties nearby; Lanhydrock, Cotehele, Arlington Court and The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are about and hour and a half in the car. Morwellham Quay is a great insight into a Victorian harbour and how it worked and there are many other attractions as well as the fantastic scenery and coastal activities on offer.
The Bude / Morwenstow area
An excellent base for serious walkers with Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor really close by. Exmoor is a little further but within an easy drive.
Bude offers good shopping, a good array of restaurants and pubs. Splash swimming pool has a flume and health suite, and there is a leisure complex for bowling and indoor play. Boats can be hired on Bude canal and there is windsurfing, sailing, kayaking (either just hire or book lessons) at Lower Tamar Lake
We have an arrangement with the local Links course, Bude and North Cornwall, for our guests and there are good courses at nearby Holsworthy, St Enedoc and the Jack Nicklaus designed St Mellion.

We were looking for a holiday which offered us the opportunity to have a break from the normal hustle and bustle of life and what we found in Gooseham Mill House was total relaxation in the most beautiful and tranquil setting. The house itself was furnished to a wonderfully high standard and provided everything we needed and more and was lovely and clean and maintained to a very high standard. The gardens were amazing and our daughter found it a great adventure crossing the bridge over the stream in the garden and being able to travel from Cornwall to Devon in one step. There were plenty of outdoor games set up in the garden such as table tennis, badminton and basketball with all racquets, etc provided. We walked to the beach one day through the lovely nature reserve and even though it was quite a walk it was worth it to have what felt like our very own private beach as we were the only ones on it. Overall Gooseham Mill offered us the opportunity for total relaxation in total luxury and we would highly recommend this property and the professional services of Elite West Holidays.

Our stay in this fabulous house located in Bude
Review Submitted: September 22, 2009 Date of Stay: August 2009
We have recently returned from our holiday in Bude where we stayed in the accommodation detailed. On entering the house it was exactly like it was in the pictures and the description on the website and was beautifully clean and well maintained and easily accommodated the nine of us who were staying in the property. We had two 8 year olds with us and they loved the games room, which became their own private den and we found there were enough sets of plates, cutlery, cups, etc for all of us. The views were fantastic and the location to the beach, local shops and walks along part of the coastal path were amazing and meant that we did not have to get in the car for anything if we didn't feel like travelling, which made for a nice relaxing holiday.
We received the most wonderful customer service from 'Nick' who replied to every email quickly and these were full of information and help in response to our numerous questions. It was also nice to discover while on holiday in the property they were also available at the end of the phone and again responded very quickly to our request for assistance.
We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative and are looking to hopefully return ourselves in the New Year.
We used the website a lot before going on holiday and this was most useful for researching places to eat before going and we ate at 'Elements' which is detailed on the website and had the most lovely meal, so much so we went back and had our last meal there as well. The food was excellent and so was the service as they were most helpful in fitting 9 of us in at very short notice.
We would highly recommend this property and the services of Nick.
