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.

Please note this property does not provide towels or tea towels. These can be hired from us or feel free to bring your own.

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.

  • Beach Life

    Perranporth boasts a beautiful three mile long sandy beach with undulating dunes, a tidal swimming pool built into the striking Chapel Rock, and rock pools that are perfect for paddling. Swim and surf in the big blue, explore caves and enjoy the space to stretch, run and breathe. Take a picnic for lazy hazy days in the dunes or take the dog and relish the three mile expanse of golden sand.

  • Culture and History

    St Piran, the patron saint of Cornwall, is said to have washed up on Perranporth’s shores, and the remains of his 6th century oratory can still viewed in the dunes. Perranporth was the site for two tin mines in years gone by and the inspiration for Winston Graham’s Poldark novels which were all written here. High above the beach the millennium sundial tracks Cornish time (approximately 12 minutes later than GMT).

  • Food and Drink

    From fine dining to fish and chips on the promenade, Perranporth has a wide array of food and drink, so you can treat yourself to time away from the kitchen. Share delicious tapas, try vegan street food, or enjoy great bar food in sunny gardens. Local takeaways include Indian, Chinese, Thai and pizza, and remember to leave room for an indulgent Cornish ice cream or post dinner local gin!

  • Get Active

    The north coast of Cornwall is made for adventure. In addition to the wild playgrounds of the beaches there are also loads of organised activities available too. Book lessons with a surf school, gallop a horse along the beach, and play tennis at beautifully maintained grass and hard courts. There’s also a links golf course in the dunes, hang-gliding, a bowling green, children’s play park and boating lake.

  • Local Attractions

    There’s plenty to see and do in the local area, without having to travel too far. Within a short drive of all our properties, visitors can pet farm animals and sample the local cyder at Healeys Cyder Farm, find out how ice cream is made (and of course treat yourself to some!) at Callestick Farm Cornish Ice Cream, and discover the ruins of St Piran’s Oratory in the sand dunes at Perranporth. Dairyland, with horse rides, farm animals, and a huge soft play area, is a great day out for families with young children, as is Lappa Valley Steam Railway with train rides and play park and exploring creatures of the deep at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium at Towan Beach.

  • Explore Cornwall

    Slightly further afield is The Eden Project with its famous biomes, the National Trust houses of Lanhydrock, Trelissick and Trerice, and the spectacular gardens of Glendurgan, Trebah and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From the rugged and dramatic north coast to the sheltered harbours of south coast fishing villages, everyone is bound to find a corner of Cornwall that captures their heart. Visit St Ives for cobbled streets and art galleries including the Tate St Ives, walk the causeway to St Michael’s Mount island off Marazion, and explore Falmouth’s fascinating maritime history. Padstow is a foodie’s heaven, while Truro boasts a stunning Gothic Revival cathedral and is the county’s shopping hub.

What our

Guests say

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.
