Fabulous Stay!

What a wonderful 3 days we have just had in River Cottage!  This beautiful cottage, with it’s very well appointed, rustic charm, exceeds all expectations and had everything we needed for a very comfortable and relaxed stay.  Our dog even had her own doggie welcome pack!  Carbis Mill holds an idilic position, tucked away down a driveway next to the river and even has its own leat running right through the middle of the garden, you feel like you are a million miles from anywhere, so its a perfect escape and antidote to normal busy life but you are still close enough to walk to St Erth along the river or pop in the car to local beaches and sites.  Adrian and Lucy are perfect hosts!  Their attention to all the little details that make a difference to your stay are very evident but they are very relaxed and always happy to share all their local knowledge of the area to enhance your stay in any way that they can.  We also loved the private little garden space at the back of the cottage that is fully fenced, it was a great comfort to know we could let the dog out knowing she couldn’t wander off exploring!  We had one day that was a little overcast and damp so after breakfast in Marazion overlooking St Michaels Mount and a long beach walk we were really happy to relax in the cosy cottage with the woodburner and a film.  So River Cottage is perfect for getting out and about from and for just getting cosy and relaxed in too, we can’t recommend it more highly and will definitely be going back soon! Thanks Adrian and Lucy!  With our very best wishes, Nick, Ness and Smartie! 🐾. 22-24th April 2022

Five star stay!!

The Cornish sunshine was missing, well it was the end of January, but we had a wonderful stay in Corn Loft. Our hosts left a very welcome cream tea and they also recommended a few local hostelries (Porthminster Kitchen was excellent). Carbis Mill is set in a tranquil oasis, hearing the river run by is quite a treat.The property itself is beautifully furnished and spotless. We couldn’t recommend a stay at Corn Loft enough, five star all round!

Perfect winter break

We enjoyed a perfect 4 night stay in January. Despite the wind and rain we ventured out everyday to enjoy the dramatic Cornish coastline. The real highlight was knowing we had the warmth and luxury of Corn Loft to return to. We could relax in the romantic roll top bath in the bedroom or revive in the steaming hot shower of the en suite. Then sink into the large sumptuous sofa with a hot drink and a good book. The well equipped kitchen was perfect to cook a simple supper. Then we would finish the day with a good nights sleep in the comfortable king-size bed. Lucy and Adrian are perfect hosts, there to help without intruding. A superb winter break to forget those winter blues. Gabby and Kevin. January 2022    

Lovely, comfortable, clean and quiet! – September 2021

Lovely, comfortable, clean and quiet! All the things we need on holiday! The place is stunning, both inside and out. Adrian and Lucy are fabulous, friendly, lovely hosts. We have stayed in both River Cottage and the Corn Loft now, and both are fab. River Cottage has a bit more room but the Corn Loft is so cozy, spacious and beautiful they are just as good as each other. We highly recommend staying there for a great, restful stay. Thank you Adrian and Lucy!

Complete Haven

We had the most wonderful stay in Corn Loft. The photos do make it look beautiful but cannot do justice to this place – it is a complete haven.
The approach is magical and on arrival you are then led through a private walkway with beautiful planting that envelops a sweet secluded garden and bridge to entrance. The loft is beautifully proportioned with ample space for reclining and relaxing – much needed!
It is all there, the important information on the history of the place, local delights, not to mention the generous welcome gift of bubbles, scones and delectable clotted cream.
You are treated with everything you could require in the kitchen, ample sofa and stashes of DVD’s to help make you feel miles from anything.
A bath in the bedroom is hard to walk away from, the shower was a dream and it was flooded with beautiful Cornish light through the many windows.
The location is ideal, being such a short distance to the different bays in this area. Admittedly whilst that is all there, we were more than content in retreating back and ambling along the river at the edge of the garden. Lucy and Adrian were so quick to respond and forthcoming with helpful tips for the area – all of which lived up to expectations.
We felt surprised and truly lucky to have landed in such a sweet spot.

Pictures don’t do it justice

A wonderful place – the pictures don’t do it justice really so trust all the five star reviews! Adrian and Lucy couldn’t have been more helpful and communicative before and during our stay. The house is gorgeous, with access to the river path where we had a lovely run one sunny evening. The house itself is really well equipment with a big comfy bed, rain shower and lovely living space and private garden. A very peaceful spot, we are already planning to come back and recommend to everyone!

6 out 5

This is a gem of a place, Corn Loft is beautiful, the hosts Lucy and Adrian have got this spot on, they gave us ideas for walks, one of which we went along the river to the local pub, we also walked to the train station which took us to st Ives, Penzance and Hayle. With very thoughtful touches, a beautiful gift (it was our honeymoon) so equipped with everything you could ask for even the bbq was ready to light. I especially loved the twinkly lights that came on in the evening. ( thanks Adrian for listening to Lucy and me) We walkedaround 12-15 miles miles a day, so the big free standing bath was absolutely perfect to have a glorious soak in, so romantic a perfect retreat 6 out of 5.

Oozes of character, peacefulness and tranquility!

Carbis Mill is set in a stunning location tucked away in a beautiful untouched landscape that takes you back in time and make you slow down and relax in a way that many other places can’t compete with. We could have not asked for a more perfect week staying at River Cottage. Lucy & Adrian have been the most amazing hosts, from adding all the little extras such as lovely cream tea and bubbly on arrival and being super helpful and kind when our dog needed veterinary care.

Lots of love and thanks again!

Perfect Staycation in the stunning Cornish Countryside – April 2021

Our recent stay at Carbis Mill was the perfect getaway that was very much needed! The Corn Loft is a great space laid out to cater for couples  – really clean, light and airy. Having our own kitchen saved on the cost of eating out and allowed us to get cosy for the night! A lot of thought has gone into the little touches that makes this a luxury break.

The location is peaceful but accessible to most Seaside towns within a short drive (St Ives in particular is really nearby and great for a day trip). Being able to walk 10-15 minutes to the local pub was also a huge bonus!

A big thank you to Adrian and Lucy who were on hand to suggest places to visit and tell us where they got the mattress for the bed from (it was heavenly!)

Already looking forward to coming down again in the future!
