If you like to see the stars at night and don’t often experience total silence then this is the place. Absolute isolation with no mobile phone signal and nothing but trees in every direction, really is the place to unwind for a few days.

Furnishings are a little 90’s but it adds to the charm. Well worth a visit.

September 2020

Liz and Gerald were wonderful hosts - thoughtful, always there when we needed something but otherwise left us to enjoy the cottage and its surroundings in peace. They have created a cosy, comfortable, relaxing home from home with everything we needed to relax, unwind and enjoy the surrounding countryside with our dog, Toby. The location is simply stunning with views to enjoy in every direction and only a short walk out of the driveway to a bubbling stream or into the woods or fields. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great location within a short drive to the coast and the sites and sounds of both Devon and Cornwall.

Leat Mill was yet another great classic cottage find! A beautiful setting and a really beautiful cottage. The owners were really helpful yet unobtrusive. A superb cream tea was waiting on our arrival - very welcome and Gerald supplied much needed help before we left repairing our slight car mishap do we could drive home safely! Definitely a cottage to recommend.

July 2019

Leat Mill is the ideal cottage providing everything needed for a comfortable, enjoyable holiday. The standard of accommodation is high. The quiet location is lovely. This is our 4th visit to this location staying twice in Leat Mill and twice in Leat Mill Cottage opposite, which has the same owners, who are very helpful and friendly but do not intrude on the holiday. I am sure we will return.

Leat Mill is perfect for a holiday in Devon/ Cornwall. The cottage is first class, a real escape to the country.

The cottage was clean, comfortable and very homely. All equipment supplied so that you can eat in if you wish. Everything including washing machine, cooker microwave iron at your disposal. One major complaint - the holiday ended too quickly, so next year we shall be booking for two weeks!

August 2017

A well-appointed and comfortable place to stay with the dog, in beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed our stay in this lovely spacious cottage, and if the weather had deteriorated, would have been happy to spend longer indoors!

March 2016

I have stayed in many places through Classic cottages and this rates as one of the best, it was clean , comfortable, well furnished and in a quiet but perfect location for both Devon and Cornwall. The owners were very welcoming and obviously go to a lot of trouble to keep it so spotless.

August 2015

Excellent holiday at Leat Mill. First class accomodation with every comfort. Wonderful location in picturesque valley with good village and farm shop facilities just minutes away. Definately booking a return trip.

August 2015

A very clean and comfortable cottage within easy walking distance of two dog friendly pubs. Central location offering relatively easy access to both Cornish coastlines. Would definitely stay again if holidaying in that area.

April 2015

Leat Mill exceeded all our expectations. We had a fantastic week made even better by our stay at this cottage, which is set in the most picturesque of valleys surrounded by open fields and woodlands. The cottage has everything you could possibly need and more, there's even a file of tourist info, which we found extremely useful. I can't recommend this cottage more highly. Book you won't be disappointed. 10/10 to Classic Cottages and 10/10 to Leat Mill.

This is the second time we have booked with Classic Cottages. They provided a first class service renting first class cottages. Tastefully decorated, extremely comfortable and at reasonable prices. Another wonderful week in Devon. Thank you.

May 2014

The property was fantastic. We stayed for a little over two weeks as we were moving to North Cornwall from Kent and had some issues and delays with the purchase of our new home. The Owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. They went well beyond expectations in assisting us and were most generous. The location was perfect and our dogs loved the stay. Very peaceful and an absolute godsend during an otherwise stressful time.

May 2014

We did not want for anything. Thank you for a lovely stay, we would highly recommend Leat Mill as a perfect base to explore Devon and Cornwall.

October 2013

Leat Mill is an very comfortable cottage in a very beautiful location. The cottage felt very homely and all the furnishings and decor were excellent. It contributed to us having a very enjoyable week's holiday. We have booked cottages with Classic Cottages a number of times now and have never been disappointed, the cottages and locations have always been better than expectations and we will definitely use them again.

August 2013

Lovely clean property, peaceful and easy to find. Exactly as described. Comfortable, everything you need for a restful stay.

August 2013

Leat Mill is an idyllically located and tranquil haven close to a great range of activities in both Devon and Cornwall. There is loads of info in the cottage if you are at all indecisive about what to do when you get there! It is a home away from home and contains everything you could possibly need so if you are feeling inactive you can stay in and enjoy the home comforts and look at the lovely views! The owners were very thoughtful - Liz welcomed us with a brief tour and a cream tea and Gerrard gave us fresh runner beans from his garden! A lovely place to stay!

April 2013

Super get-away - will be back next year all being well.
