Corn Loft at Carbis Mill

April 2021

We had a fantastic stay at Corn Loft.

It is beautifully decorated, with everything you need and a very comfy sofa and bed. The bath was incredible!

We had a BBQ in the garden which was lovely. Everything felt super clean and COVID secure.

The hosts were so friendly and helpful – definitely take them up on their recommendations! We walked to the Star pub which was great, saw the seals and had breakfast at Godrevy and went to the lizard.

Corn loft is a great location and just a perfect get away. Thank you again, we will be back!!

Wonderful stay in River Cottage April 2021

We eventually arrived at Carbis Mill after a long lockdown needing a real rest – it was absolutely worth the wait. We were looking for a cosy hideaway and we were delighted with what we got. The cottage is beautiful and peaceful, tucked away by the river with everything you need for a relaxing break. Comfy bed, amazing bath and so nice to enjoy the evenings by the fire. Really enjoyed the short walk to St Erth from where you can get the train into St Ives. Lucy and Adrian are very generous and welcoming hosts with lots of great suggestions for places to go and things to do. We can’t wait to return!

Thank you 🙂 Lucy and Nick

Cornish Paradise

“Lucy and Adrian have created a stunning piece of Cornish paradise in River Cottage. Accessed down a long treelined lane and nestled on the bank of a small river that flows past the property, this chocolate box cottage is something you could easily find as a setting for a romantic film, and infact reminded us of the house from The Holiday! And what a holiday it was – a true break from the drama of London, our stress and fatigue quickly washed away as we explored the riverbank walks and ventured further by car to local villages such as Marazion and Porthleven with their historic waterfront, inviting pubs and then on to the breathtaking Gwithian beach which was perfect for rambles with the dog. River Cottage is well suited for your pooch with an enclosed garden to the rear. Lucy and Adrian are such welcoming hosts and went out of their way to add little touches that reflected their love for creating a home from home for their guests including a Christmas tree! After a day exploring outdoors, the place welcomes you back with its warm tasteful decor, roll top bath and large shower, log fire and comfy bed. Total heaven, one of our best ever stays – we can’t wait to return!”

Amazing Stay!

We have stayed here twice now and we definitely wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Cornwall, We always feel so welcome and love staying here! The accommodation is always so clean and lovely.

Perfect Stay

“What can we say… Just perfect! Nestled down a rural leafy lane sat peacefully in beautiful gardens sits River cottage. Beautifully decorated and equipped throughout, with lots of personal touches Lucy and Adrian have really thought of everything. There was a warm welcome to us and our little dog, lots of information and advice, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. River cottage is in the perfect location for seeing some of the most stunning scenery, coves and beaches Cornwall has to offer. The train that runs from St Erth to St Ives every half hour is a real treat, with wonderful coastal views. We also saw lots of wildlife including an Owl flying above our car down the lane. Really didn’t wan’t to leave and can’t wait to go back If you are thinking of booking , this is a real gem of a place.”

A little gem

“If your reading this , you have found a little gem. Comfy, cosy, with everything you could possibly need! With exceptionally pleasant friendly hosts. Short drive to some stunning beaches. Lovely river walk in beautiful surroundings to the local village pub. It was our first stay here, but definitely won’t be our last! Highly recommended.”

Our Favourite Place in Cornwall!

Just returned home from our second visit to Corn Loft this year and I’m already planning another trip for next year!

The most beautiful, relaxing and secluded accommodation in the most perfect little location. And also so close to, in my opinion, some of the best coastline in the country.
We feel so lucky to have booked some nights away just after lockdown in our favourite place, and any worries that we had about visiting another location were instantly lifted by Lucy and Adrian – who have gone above and beyond to ensure Corn Loft is clean and safe but also that our stay was as friendly as last time. 
Can’t rate them, or Corn Loft highly enough – it is beautiful and we have enjoyed every second spent there!

Wonderful week away – 4th – 11th July 2020

We headed down to Cornwall on the first day out of holiday “lockdown” – possibly with a little uncertainty about what the new world might look like, but there was no need to be concerned what so ever. Lucy and Adrian were fantastic hosts and the county nothing but welcoming. River Cottage was the perfect retreat set in a beautiful location with wonderful river side walks. Doggie friendly and welcoming and right on the door step of all the places south Cornwall has to offer. Would recommend to anyone in a flash.

Thank you for making our first trip in over 3 months one to remember.
