Mill Cottage


Property Description

Combining the character of an older property with the conveniences of modern living, Mill Cottage is a lovely traditional Cornish cottage. Characterised by low oak beams, tiled floors (with underfloor heating downstairs), small shuttered windows and a cosy wood burning stove, the cottage has a mixture of traditional and contemporary furnishings which add style and comfort to the cosy rooms.  


The front door opens into the kitchen with low beamed ceilings (mind your head!), a pretty bay window behind the kitchen sink, and which is equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and a table with two chairs. A back door opens out to a small patio with rotary washing line.   


From the kitchen two steps lead up to the bathroom and first bedroom. The bathroom, with a flagstone floor, has a bath with a handheld shower, a separate large shower cubicle, WC and basin. Bedroom one is furnished with a double bed (4'6") and small chest of drawers.


Back through the kitchen, two further steps descend into the sitting room/dining room which has a large pine table with eight chairs. The sitting room is furnished with large 3-seater and 2-seater leather sofas and one armchair, providing ample comfortable seating from which to enjoy the feature fireplace with wood burner, TV with Netflix, DVD player and numerous books, games and DVDs. The cottage windows have shutters and cushioned window seats looking out to the garden, and a back door opens out to the garden.


Upstairs are two more bedrooms and a cloakroom with WC and basin. Bedroom two has twin single beds (3' each), a chest of drawers and dressing table, and bedroom three a king-sized bed (5') and wash hand basin. Both upstairs bedrooms benefit from views over the garden and wall mounted electric panel heaters.   


This semi-detached cottage benefits from a good-sized enclosed garden with level lawn, mature palms, buddleia and fruit trees, a patio area with garden furniture and barbecue, and a summer house which can be used for the storage of bikes and beach equipment. There is parking for two cars at the property.  Two small dogs are welcome all year round providing they are supervised at all times and not left in the property on their own.  


Perfect for a family holiday, all the amenities, shops and cafes of Perranporth - plus the spectacular South West coast path - are all just a short walk away. Perranporth boasts a beautiful three-mile-long beach with golden sand and good surf and is ideally placed on the north coast to explore the rest that Cornwall has to offer: just eight miles to the cathedral city of Truro; and Padstow, St Ives and Falmouth are all within an easy 40-minute drive.  


Please note this property does not provide towels or tea towels.  These can be hired from us or feel free to bring your own.
Tea-towels - £1.50 each
Hand-towels - £2.50 each
Bath-towels - £5.00 each



Please be aware that to the side of Mill Cottage there is an adjoining annex. The annex is a separate self-contained unit and has no access to the garden. It is occasionally occupied by the owners.

    My family and I recently stayed at the excellent Mill Cottage in Perranporth. The accommodation was wonderfully prepared when we arrived and was the perfect place for the 6 of us to stay. In a quiet area, with a beautifully presented garden it was the ideal setting for our summer holiday. Perfectly placed for local amenities and walking to the beach.
