With dramatic sweeping views from almost every room taking in rolling countryside, mining heritage and the breathtaking north Cornish coastline, Mill Barn is simply the perfect holiday destination. Set down a private driveway shared with just two other properties, this is the ideal place to relax, unwind and enjoy cherished moments together.
From the minute you step inside Mill Barn you feel at home, and the welcoming kitchen/dining-room with its slate floors and gorgeous Aga really help to set the mood. Take the stairs to the half-landing and the sitting-room opens up in front of you. This room is impressive – with large comfy sofas, high-vaulted ceilings, oodles of space and the mother of all wood-burners. The floor to ceiling windows allow mother nature to take centre stage but you can always step outside and get that bit closer to nature, spending time out on the terrace enjoying more of what this spectacular setting has to offer. A second sitting-room can be found on the first floor offering a large television, Wii, table-football, DVDs and games galore, ideal for the younger members of the party who might want some of their own space.
The incredibly spacious master suite is on the first floor with its elegant en suite bathroom complete with free-standing bath, and three further beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with 'zip and link' beds providing the ultimate in flexible accommodation, are on the ground floor along with the family bathroom.
Add to this outside storage for all that essential holiday kit, an outdoor shower to rinse off mucky dogs and humans (!!) and an acre of land to burn off some energy and I guarantee you won't want to leave.
This part of Cornwall is as fabulous as Mill Barn itself. If beach days are on the agenda, it's only two miles down the footpath to Trebarwith Strand or venture further along the coast to some more wonderful beaches at Polzeath and Daymer Bay. Go exploring in the fishing villages of Port Isaac and Crackington Haven or discover Arthurian legend at Tintagel and tales of Cornish witches at Boscastle.
All that sea air will certainly work up an appetite and if you fancy a bite to eat, well by golly you are spoilt for choice in this area. Traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants, beach side cafes and celebrity chefs are in abundance all waiting to serve up some good old Cornish hospitality and fayre.
