About Helen Shopland

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.

Helen Shopland purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Helen Shopland chose North 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.

What makes this cottage unique

A haven for Nature it is a very relaxing and picturesque setting. It is ideally located, being 15 minutes from the stunning North Cornish cornish coastline and a few miles from the rugged Bodmin Moor. Our Dairy cottage offers fabulous 4 star accommodation which is perfect for couples or a family- also suitable for wheelchair users. The new Hot Tub and Swim Spa facilities compliment the relaxing stay that you can expect here at Ta Mill. Why not hire the site for a party- if you have 30 people or more you can hire Ta Mill exclusively for that special event or wedding.
