The Old Mill in Millook, Cornwall, South West England

The Old Mill, Millook, Cornwall, South West England

Sleeps 4
Weekly prices from £336 to £ 695

Self catering accommodation in Millook sleeps 4.

Accommodation overview: A wonderful 17th Century character cottage, formerly a water millhouse, just yards from Millook beach, where sheer cliffs tower above the pebbled beach and small rock pools are revealed at low tide.

Set in a large grassy paddock with a stream running parallel to it, the front door opens into an entrance lobby with an adjacent simple kitchen and pantry area, and in one corner a 4 step ladder leads up to a cabin style children's bedroom with a little window overlooking the 38 ft mill wheel. Two steps up from the kitchen lead to a traditionally furnished cosy beamed living room with a large fireplace and remains of a cloam oven, simple white washed stone walls and a dining area with peaceful views over the garden.

To one side, a heavy carved door salvaged from a shipwreck in the 1800s leads to an additional smaller sitting room with comfortable seating and views of the sea. A bathroom W.C. with vanity basin and shower over bath can be reached via a few steps down from the living room, and an open tread irregularly shaped staircase leads directly up to the master attic bedroom with a 4ft 6inch double bed, a cross beamed ceiling, calming sea views and an extra single chair bed for alternative sleeping arrangements.

The renovated 3 ton mill wheel operates twice daily as an essential part of its preservation. The elderly or infirm may find the low curving beams, uneven floors and stairs a little difficult, and due to the proximity of the running water, toddlers will require supervision in the garden.

The nearest pub is 1.5 miles, and the spectacular sands of Widemouth Bay with a small grocery store are 2 miles away. Crackington Haven is about 5 miles and Bude 6 miles.

Please note:
No TV reception. Not suitable for children under 8 or children/adults requiring supervision.
