Stunning House

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful House and lovely garden. Big comfy beds and big sofas in the living area. We didn't need to use the lovely fire as the house was already warm enough. Glad the weather was not bad as unsure how we would had got up and down the tiny trek. The kitchen was well equipped however the washing machine was faulty on our visit. We couldn't get any mobile signals and the internet only covers one half of the house. I guess this is a small price to pay for such a remote cottage.

A dream holiday in a corner of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The peace, the tranquility and the beauty of the garden and surroundings plus the Quality of the interiour - old world charm (furniture) combined with modern day luxury (1st class bathrooms, heavenly beds etc...) made our stay here unforgettable. We hardly left the place for a whole week because we were so contented! It was the best Holiday rental we had ever stayed at... and we've seen quite a few...Thank you to the owner and Nick for letting us share this Corner of paradise for a week! We hope to be back one day!

Everything we hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

With the onset of good weather, we decided on a last minute break to Cornwall. As we were travelling with a dog, I was hoping for any sort of availability and couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled upon Gooseham Mill. When we arrived we quickly realised that the pictures and the description were no exaggeration. The house was immaculate. The gardens were actually bigger and better than we could have ever expected. The garden and surroundings were so peaceful and scenic that on a couple of days we didn't even make it past the front gate. Fresh fruit and veg picked in Devon and then eaten in Cornwall! How many gardens can make that claim? As frequent visitors to this part of the country, it is easily the best house we have ever stayed in. Ok the Rayburn took a little getting used to, but we soon managed to get the hang of it and everybody has the extra kilos to prove it.

There are plenty of local beaches to explore, including one that you can access via a half hour walk directly from the path outside the house. There is a very big file of local info on things to do and see, where to drink and eat etc. etc. in the house. In the end we just ran out of days.

A big thank you to Nick at Elite West for sorting everything out so quickly and professionally. Hope to be back next summer.
