Notes on accommodation: Families with young children should be aware that the Mill has a stream running directly adjacent to the lawn. Inside the property, there is a spiral staircase and only 1 stair gate in the 3 storey property. Outside: Driveway with plenty of parking. Wonderful large lawned area, ideal for games or simply relaxing by the stream. Picnic table/bench, second bench & barbecue. The lawn gives way to the meadow & woodland where there is a year round abundance of wildlife including deer, foxes, badgers, stoats, owls, buzzards, sparrowhawks & kestrels (the stream runs the full length of the boundary of the Mill & its grounds). In the spring the woodland is alive with birdlife and carpeted with bluebells, campion, and other wild flowers. The meadow is truly a wild meadow. To improve access, whilst minimising disruption to wildlife, pathways through the meadow are mowed just twice a year. Boots/wellingtons are therefore recommended. Bed linen, house towels, & also beach towels can be provided for an extra charge (please enquire). Tea-towels & bath mats are provided free of charge. A cleaning service can be provided during your stay for an extra charge - please enquire. Other: Dining area with large dining table and 6 chairs, CD player/radio, night store/economy 7 heater. Lower floor: hallway with electric night store/ economy 7 heater, and external door.

The Mill is in an outstanding setting and we felt was a perfect base for exploring Cornwall. As you would expect, the mill is very well appointed and offers everything that you need to enjoy your stay.

A beautiful rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

Combe Mill is a well equipped and maintained character property situated at the end of a private road a short car ride from both Padstow and Wadebridge. Our party consisted of 6 adults and one toddler and the Mill never felt too small or cramped. All the bedrooms are a reasonable size and are bigger than they seem on the photographs. There is ample storage space for clothes in the bedrooms. Our daughter and her husband were in the first floor bedroom with our grand daughter and there was plenty of room for her travel cot in the room. The bathroom and ensuite are of a good standard as is the overall standard of furnishings throughout the Mill. The grounds are simply stunning. Driving along the country lane leading to Combe Mill is a bit intimidating at first, but we all soon got used to it. Our son and his wife and our daughter and her husband dined in Padstow a couple of nights and the taxi fare back to Combe Mill was £32. Overall we had a fantastic week break at a Combe Mill and would definitely go back given the chance.

We had a fabulous half term at the mill, the property and grounds are beautiful. The mill has absolutely everything you could need and more and at a very high standard. Cornwall is amazing and the mill is in a great location to explore.

Old mill by the stream lives up to expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This property looked good on the web site, so we decided to book a week for a party of four adults in September, hoping for some good weather. We were delighted with the property and the weather. The property was in our chosen area of Chapel Amble which is only a short drive to Port Isaac/ Wadebridge and Padstow, an ideal location for exploring this part of north Cornwall.

The property is split over three levels with the lounge diner and kitchen on the ground level with one double bedroom with en suite on the upper floor ( note this has a bath but no shower), two further bedrooms a double and a twin are located on the lower floor with a separate bathroom containing a bath and shower. The mill was spotless and nicely decorated with modern fittings throughout. The log burner was brilliant on a couple of chilly nights which we had filling the entire mill with warm air. The grounds next to the cottage are well manicured but if you wish to explore further then I should take some wellies.

To sum up we were delighted with our stay and had no complaints.
