At Ta Mill, you can hire the site Hot Tub. The Vita Hot Tub is situated in a private setting, unusually surrounded by the original stone walling of the waterwheel pit. Climb down into the inviting Hot Tub which is sat on a steel grid above the fantastic vertical walls where a working waterwheel once belonged. Be amazed at the beautiful example of local craftmenship from ages past which is lit up below you or look above at the changing scenes as clouds drift by or marvel at the sky at night. The Swim Spa has a never ending current which you can swim against and also massage chairs for relaxing- see website for terms and conditions (sorry, no children under 12 years of age in Spa facilities).

Ta Mill 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 with gym equipment.

Further details

Weekly bookings or short breaks - any day start for any length of time out of season. Discount of 15% applies to 2 people renting lodges.

The West Country region

Ideally situated for touring Devon and Cornwall, Ta Mill is approx. 50 minutes from Exeter, so why not enjoy a short break for a therapeutic experience ‘away from the madding crowd’ any time of year. You will be within easy reach of the dramatic Heritage coastline of North Cornwall and the untamed beauty of Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. Explore the hidden coves and pretty fishing villages including Port Isaac and Padstow. Visit the timeless harbour at Boscastle or the mystical castle of King Arthur at Tintagel. Relax on a sheltered sandy beach or take in the stunning views as you follow the coastal path from Bude to Padstow. Enjoy the world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan or visit the wealth of National Trust houses and gardens in the locality.

Thankyou for your review. The nature trail is a lovely way to end the day as you amble alongside the babbling brook. Wander a little further and you reach the unique setting of St Clether Holy Well which is a truly magical spot set in the hillside about a mile from Ta Mill. There are many local agricultural shows that go on in the summer months so you can mix sight-seeing with a day out admiring the show sheep or cattle. Alternatively just relax on your veranda or patio and watch Nature as it just carries on in front of you!

"Loved it!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ta Mill. It's such a peaceful location, so relaxing. The grounds were beautiful and well kept and our 3 yr old loved playing on the golf course and out in front… More

So glad you enjoyed your holiday here. The grounds are hopefully an attraction for all ages for different reasons. Its great to see toddlers enjoying the open spaces at Ta Mill and with the Moors quite close, you can get some fantastic views whilst walking or cycling. Hope to see you again soon.

"Lovely place and central to both Devon and Cornwall"

The Lodge we stayed in was warm , comfortable and Clean with everything we could have needed.
Helen was very friendly and always on site if we needed anything, we will most certainly be back

Thankyou for your review. We aim to ensure our accommodation is as welcoming as possible. In addition to our weekly cleaning routine we regularly hire 'Mattress Medics' to help ensure clean, hygienic and allergen free mattresses. One spectacular event that must be witnessed when visiting Ta Mill this time of year is the 'starling roost' at Rough Tor. Visitors can watch the daily return of starlings at dusk to their nighttime resting spot only 4 miles from Ta Mill. A fantastic sight to behold.

Glad that you enjoyed your stay. We try and ensure that all our accommodation is warm and inviting on arrival, whatever the weather. Winter is well upon us and guests can enjoy the changing scenery of the surrounding countryside. We are open all year and many of our cottages have 'roaring woodburners' to warm you up after a refreshing walk.

"Superb setting, excellent facilities."

The lodge we stayed in was very comfortable and had everything we needed, even with a small baby in tow. Helen provided us with a baby bath and high chair, although we hadn't specified these items, and she was very amenable in every way. The site had a number of extra facilities such as the childrens play area and the mini golf course. The view from our lodge was really nice, with the pond in the foreground, the pleasant roll of the hills crossing the sky line, buzzards overhead and foxes playing in the fields during the evenings. The location was ideal for us, with lots to do in the area, from farmyard experiences to the pleasant tearooms and antique shops in Padstow and the lovely beaches nearby. Even the Eden project and Newquay were only a short drive away.
