Pump or Smithy cottage: Our Pump cottage is a one bedroom cottage with its cosy woodburner nestled in a huge Inglenook fireplace. The delightful combination of stone, slate and exposed beams exudes character.

Our luxury 4 star cottages offer beautifully decorated modern interiors in the original stone and slate buildings. Fully centrally heated and with contura woodburners these cottages are a retreat all year round.

Ta Mill House: This house sleeps up to 9 and offers fabulous 4 star accommodation and charming Olde worlde tradition in one. Ta Mill house boasts 4 large en-suite shower rooms, a wood burner, oil central heating and a generally spacious holiday home.

Detached Lodges sleeping 4 (discounted by 15% for couples) offer 2 bedrooms. Why not choose a Brookview lodge with a picturesque outlook over the wildlife pond, where you will definately spot our resident moorhens and probably spot the Mallard ducks and visiting Heron. Alternatively our Meadowview lodges have stunning views across the secluded valley and you can sit on the sunny south facing veranda and enjoy the peaceful countryside.

On site you can enjoy the newly installed Hot Tub or Swim Spa, games room with table tennis, pool table and darts or have some fun on our pitch 'n' putt set in an acre of meadowland. Alternatively meander along the picturesque valley on our beautiful Nature trail (wheelchair & pushchair friendly) or relax in the quiet grounds.

Ta Mill is ideally situated for touring both Cornwall and Devon. Nearby attractions include the North cornish coastline, Boscastle, Tintagel, Bude, Padstow and Port Isaac, renowned for the filming of Doc Martin and the historic market town of Launceston with its castle ruins. Eden project and Heligan gardens are well worth a visit. National Trust properties such as Lanhydrock and Cotehele are popular destinations. Although Ta Mill is hidden away in its own peaceful valley, it is superbly situated for visiting the North and South coasts of Cornwall, both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor and of course countless gardens and historic houses and castles. To entertain the younger visitor local attractions include Trethorne leisure farm (10 miles), Hidden Valley(9 miles) and Crealy adventure park (20 miles).

About the Owner

I was brought up on a farm, just across the border in Devon and went to school in Launceston, so I guess I'm 'Devonish', a mixture of Devonshire and Cornish! I lived and worked away for nearly 10 years before buying Ta Mill, roughly co-inciding with the birth of my first child. Over 18 years later, a second child, plus a sheep dog, cat and many more sheep, Ta Mill has been lovingly renovated and provides a unique hideaway for exploring the beautiful county of Cornwall.

Ta Mill is a one-off place. When you first drive along the little country lane on your way to Ta Mill, with the silohettes of Rough Tor and Brown Willy on the horizon you are immediately struck by the magical location. After a couple of miles, you reach Ta Mill and drive down through the tunnel of trees to the secluded hollow where the cottages and lodges are nestled. This unique setting is a real gem and the accommodation allows visitors to experience the quiet ambience for themselves.
