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.
