The West Country region
Cornwall is renowned for its mild climate, being a peninsular, benefiting from the warmth of the Gulf Stream drift. Our position is convenient for road access to all parts of Cornwall to visit the many places steeped in history/heritage and monuments together with a magnificent coastline to the Atlantic, providing sandy beaches and coves, many of which are famous for surfing. Cornwall has theme parks and attractions, golf courses, fishing villages and harbours, museums and galleries and, of course, the much acclaimed Eden Project near St Austell.
Our cottages are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Cornwall and provides cosy, quality, well-equipped accommodation and a perfect retreat at any time of the year in the glorious North Cornwall countryside. The cottages are set in a courtyard in a quiet country lane and surrounded by
farmland. They are within easy reach of many beautiful sandy beaches and coves and magnificent coastal walks, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the cliffs and seabird activity from the coastal paths.
The nearby Camel Estuary offers sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, canoeing and rowing. A disused railway line has been transformed into an extremely pleasing route along the Estuary from Padstow to Wadebridge and onward to Bodmin for walking and cycling. A visit to ‘The Camel Trail’ is a must! Leat Cottage is just three miles from the friendly town of Wadebridge, which offers all the amenities of banks, bakers, butchers, greengrocers, post office and many interesting independent shops, together with supermarkets and the John Betjeman Centre. Everyone likes to visit the ancient fishing port of Padstow with its fascinating harbour, shops and renowned seafood, which is five miles away. There are stately homes and gardens such as Pencarrow, Lanhydrock, and Trerice within easy reach and the moors of Bodmin and woods at Cardinham provide further interest. There is a wide choice of restaurants to suit all tastes in the immediate vicinity.

"close to a lot of attractions"
Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday although not a lot catered for young children, ie plastic cups and plates to prevent breakages - glasses and cups not a good idea. The cottage was well catered for other… More
We are situated in an unspoilt rural location with convenient road access from the A39 and a car is recommended. There is a bus service at the end of our lane on the A389 with connections to Wadebridge and Padstow and beyond. Several days prior to arrival we send our guests an email with travel information, which is on our website, and they are met personally and shown into their cottage and given the keys.
Our cottages are VisitBritain 4 Star graded and all have Gold Awards. The requirements of this standard for crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils are all met and exceeded. Our guests are invited whilst being shown around the property on arrival to advise us if there is any further item they require, and we are always pleased to help.

"Great Tranquil Location and Great Base for Seeing North Cornwall"
We had a great stay at Hawksland Mill Cottages owned by a lovely couple Richard and Jane, we rented Well Cottage, very impressed on arrival, has all the amenities you require, had a conservatory attached, and a lovely view is across towards Padstow, the location is just off the A39 a few miles outside Padstow and has good access just down a narrow lane, no traffic noise is heard, it is lovely and peaceful. This was a great base for what we wanted to do , Camel Estuary is a short drive away, a must for cyclist, Wadebridge is 2 miles down the road with Tesco near by, we toured the North Cornwall Coast area. The cottage was clean and well presented, what we did find is that for ourselves the mattress on the bed was to soft for me and my partner, the shower does not regulate properly but this did not matter has we enjoyed lovely soaks in a lovely bath, this cottage had everything we required and would defiantly go back if I visit this area again. Thanks Richard and Jane for a Lovely stay.
It is lovely to receive these compliments. We have good quality beds and the mattresses are not hard and not soft, but an average stiffness, which pleases most visitors. We have provided stiffening when a guest has requested a very firm bed.
The shower over the bath is a thermostatically controlled mains pressure unit and in full working order. Its operation is dependent on the mains water pressure and the problem was due to a fall in pressure over which we have no control. The shower unit is protective under such conditions to avoid scalding.

"Very comfortable and convenient cottage"
Great location - near to the A39 (but far enough away so that there is no road noise!). 5-10 minutes in to Wadebridge - where there is a Tesco and bike hire - easy, flat ride along the Camel Trail in to Padstow. Great beaches nearby of course - Porthcothan to the south west was our favourite, and to the north - Polzeath - all brilliant for surfing and body-boarding. Surf's Up surf school at Polzeath was great.
Cottage is very smart - spotlessly clean and in immaculate condition throughout. Well-equipped kitchen - not huge, but completely fine. Comfortable sofa and two arm chairs, good sized flat screen TV with DVD. Dining table in the conservatory which was great for dining with two messy kids - easy to wipe floor! Nice private garden with garden furniture and clothes dryer plus great views over the corn fields and to the sea beyond - spectacular sunsets! The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and answered any queries.
