I believe this accommodation to be of the very best Cornwall has to offer, however if you are not used to, or uncomfortable in reversing your vehicle back up narrow country lanes where grass grows in the middle in places, this gem may not be for you.

Thanks for reviewing Upton Mill - it's great to hear you had a wonderful holiday overall. We appreciate that some of our properties are located a little 'off the beaten track (though we're sure this adds to the character and charm!). Cornwall does has have a vast network of narrow little country lanes which can take a little practise, but all worth it in the end we feel when you get to come across places like Upton Mill!

We loved our stay at Upton Mill - a fantastic property in a super location. Loads of space & comfort, & lots of lovely little touches that made it feel like home!
Mrs Webb August 2018
Such a wonderful choice! The house is a lot bigger than the website seems to suggest and there was plenty of space for 6 adults and 3 small children to spread out and relax. The luxurious bedroom upstairs serves as a peaceful bolthole, away from the nocturnal disturbance of tiny guests. The room is so cosy when the wind is howling round that corner of the building and the rain is lashing against the skylights. (Yes, even in August!) We enjoyed watching spectacular sunsets, though wish the weather had been kinder so we could have enjoyed meals out on the balcony and played in the garden. The décor is beautiful and we enjoyed choosing our favourite artwork from the many displayed around the house. The house has so many stylish touches, yet is also relatively child-friendly. We would love to return, though hope to be greeted by less saggy, woebegone sofas next time! (The only downside to this house.)

Beautiful large, comfortable house with spectacular sunsets
Mr Harmes May 2018
A good location. Fabulous views from the decking. Housekeeping/maintenance could have been more diligent. Watch out for the lane, it gets very narrow in places. Trebarwith Strand beach is excellent as is the Cafe and the Port William Pub.

Upton Mill is a fantastic holiday home. It’s a wonderful space for a group to spend time together and has views to die for. The house is well equipped, beautiful fully decorated and most importantly, feels like home from home and so makes for a very relaxing holiday base. We’d happily return for another holiday here.
Mrs Johnson November 2017
We stayed at Upton Mill with 3 more couples to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We had the best time ever. As soon as we opened the front door it felt like home and catered for everybody's needs. The complimentary wine, beer and biscuits were a lovely touch, even fresh milk in the fridge. Exceptionally clean and well presented with breathtaking views an added bonus. Idyllically located for walks and trips to local tourist hotspots such as Port Isaac, Boscastle and Tintagel. This is the perfect cottage to celebrate and enjoy whatever the occasion and would love to return one day.

This was an absolute find, a beautiful house with fantastic views and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The accommodation was spacious and seemed to have an atmosphere where you could relax the minute you stepped inside. The decor was just perfect and as a party of 10 adults celebrating a silver wedding anniversary we had the most wonderful time here
Mrs King October 2017
This was a really fabulous cottage. Beautiful both inside and out. Spacious and well thought out, perfect for a gathering of 10 adults. Lovely views. Well equipped.

Mr Hicks Beach July 2017
Suited us all very well in spite of the weather. Heating was very welcome.
Mrs Daniel April 2017
This property was stunning the interior was gorgeous and the view was unbelievable. The beds were top quality comfort with feather duvets and good pillows. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials you may need including dishwasher tablets, washing liquid, cling film, foil, Tupperware s and a welcome pack of goodies. It's the little touches like enough toilet rolls, gorgeous local body washes and the draws had smell bags too all Devine. The only negative are the sofas are a bit old which let it down but only slightly!
Mr Greening March 2017
I would give the Cottage 5 stars if all the issues that occurred had not occurred, but 4 stars given these issues. I should add that the staff at Classic Cottages were first rate and took steps to resolve issues almost as soon as they were reported.

This is a cosy but spacious cottage. The décor is outstanding & the views are to die for. We saw a beautiful sunset even though it was the end of October. Will visit again.
Mr Hardy September 2016
Lovely place ideal for a family getaway
Dr Tippett September 2016
Outstandingly well equipped and comfortable accomodation for a large family benefiting from a recent balcony and patio extension that enables enjoyment of the superb sunset view to the west. Extremely well maintained and managed just returned from a visit for our 6th year in succession and already booked in, again for 2017.
Mr Jackson August 2016
Spacious, ideal for large group. Balcony a great addition and should be featured more strongly.
Mrs Woodcock May 2016
Wonderful spot to enjoy Cornwall at its very best, incredibly well stocked and decorated .what a find!!!!
Mr Mattock May 2016
Accommodation was spacious, generally well equipped, light and airy, although the twelve light switches at the top of the stairs were challenging when trying to find the right light for a specific area of the sitting area and kitchen!
Miss Tickle September 2015
We loved the view, were very lucky with the weather and the location was very handy for exploring North Cornwall. The property delighted us and exceeded our expectations in size, comfort, cleanliness, equipment provided and the lovely view from the garden. Our booking was made at short notice (just 6 days before arrival) and the booking was quick, easy and confirmed by post 2 days later. It was our first experience of bookign a holiday cottage and we were blown away with the property. lcoation and equipment - top quality. Absolutely delighted with our 5 day break. Wish it had been longer and we will definitely use Classic Cottages again when holidaying in the South West. Many Thanks.
