These items are available for private hire at a small additional cost. The accommodation is set in a peaceful hollow of 45 acres. A babbling brook meanders through the grounds, past the wildlife pond and continues along the picturesque nature trail, which is a DEFRA assigned access, recognised for its archaeological interest and unique setting. This nature trail leads you through a beautiful valley of dramatic stone outcrops and blossoming gorse. In the Spring, the bright yellow gorse and white blossom of the blackthorn contrast with the stunning grey slate rocks. Later in early Summer the hillside is adorned with purple foxgloves. Indulge your imagination as you absorb the natural beauty and unique tranquility whilst you wander along this unspoilt haven for nature where you can glimpse magnificent birds of prey, flocks of lapwing and much more. After nearly half a mile of wending stream you will be delighted at the discovery of another wildlife pond, playing host to a wealth of pondlife, including dragonflies, striking turquoise damselflies and swallows as they dip and dive across the shimmering water.Other facilities include a pitch 'n' putt course set in an acre of meadowland and games room.

"Lovely cottage in great location"

Despite specific arrival/departure dates we were allowed to be a bit more flexible, found the cottages easily by car thanks to some good directions on the website and were given the key and some helpful advice immediately on arrival. We stayed in Pump Cottage which was lovely and cosy, with a beautiful fireplace and all the utilities we needed- just watch out for the electricity coin meter and the steep stairs. The location is beautiful, with a lovely path from the site bringing you close to some animals as well as a stream. A great rural base to explore some of Cornwall from.

Thankyou for your comments. Our Pump cottage does have a fantastic inglenook fireplace which houses the cosy woodburner. The meter (10p per unit) should cost no more than £1 a day as there is central heating in the Pump cottage which is included in the rental cost. Thankyou for appreciating our flexibility- we do hope we can fit around our guests travel arrangements, where possible.

"Idyllic Cornish weekend, in a cottage with a modern twist!"

Arriving at Ta Mill particularly early, I was welcomed and shown to my cottage early to accomodate my need to get some work done before being able to get the weekend started! Walking in to the cottage was a pleasant surprise as we had been given Miller's cottage for the weekend. Refurbished to a high standard, with a very modern twist, the cottage was a delight and surprise. Underfloor heating, a very well equipped kitchen with a brilliant oven & hob, a gorgeous and easy to use log burner, leather sofas, a huge bedroom with a big comfy bed, a leather sofa in the bedroom, a beautiful ensuite and the buildings original beams left in place, all gives the cottage a beautiful look and feel. The grounds are gorgeous, the nature trail and walk through the fields on a particularly sunny Saturday morning was lovely. We saw kestrels, sparrow hawks and plenty of sheep! There is also the games room with a pool table which kept us occupied on Saturday night. Having a car is a must as it is a little out of the way, but that makes it all the nicer. There is a pub with friendly staff about 5mins away. It is ideally located to explore the coast. We ventured to the top of Roughtor, about 15 min drive, and also to Tintagel. We went to King Arthurs castle, but opted not to pay to go in, and instead we explored the beach and its caves. Then we went to Trebawith Strand in search of rock pools and caves. The price to stay at Ta Mill is a bargain and I would recommend to anyone! Friendly and accomating staff in a tranquil and idyllic location are just two of the features of this little hideaway. Definitely book your trip there now! I know we'll be going back!

Thankyou for your comments. It's good to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Our Millers cottage is particularly warm and cosy, even in January. We offer accommodation all year around and our guests can get some bargain breaks out of season. Many of the attractions close to Ta Mill have a different feel in the winter months and are well worth a visit. Places like Boscastle, Rough Tor, Port Isaac and Crackington Haven (to name a few) are great destinations all year round.
