Anderton Mill, Lesnewth, Near Boscastle, North Cornwall, Boscastle, Cornwall inc Scilly, PL35 0BS

Description of the holiday cottage

Anderton Mill is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, located in the Valency Valley, upstream from the fishing village of Boscastle, in the ancient parish of Lesnewth. Sleeping four in two bedrooms, it provides superb family accommodation in a beautiful location. Renovated by the owners over a period of twenty years, it is very much our ‘first home’, rather than simply a holiday cottage. The cottage is tastefully furnished, and the kitchen and bathroom have recently been refitted. The spacious living room includes a massive oak and elm settle, along with an easy to use woodburning stove. There is plenty to do within the 7.5 acre grounds as well as excellent local walks in the valley. The property is only a short drive (or indeed a walk for the fit!) to the North Cornish coast and its varied beaches. Space, peace and tranquillity are the hallmarks of this unique rural retreat.

Best Features

The cottage is set in an idyllic and extremely secluded location by a beautiful trout river. The three patios are real sun traps; the most recent addition, 'the riverside terrace', is complete with sun loungers, whilst the upper patio has a built-in barbeque and teak furniture. Enjoy the bluebell wood and tree house for children and adults! This ancient watermill has been converted with flair and finesse and includes slate floors, deep oak window seats and contemporary furnishings. The cottage is just three miles from the North Cornish coast and its stunning beaches and is a short drive away from moorland walks.

Sleeps: from 2 to 4

Pets: Yes

Anderton Mill is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. It's set in the most beautiful valley with amazing well kept gardens equipped with patio furniture to make the most of every drop of sunshine. The tree house, stream, pond and abundance of wildlife are perfect for children and adults too! Inside the cottage is spotlessly clean and has everything you could ever need. If you want a truly 'escape from it all holiday' this ticks every box. It is close to some beautiful beaches all well recommended by the owners.

A welcome return visit for us, for some much-needed rest. We spent hours relaxing by the stream, and I've taken up a new hobby: butterfly spotting! 16 different varieties recorded over the seven days, including the rare brown fritillary. Such a wonderful, peaceful, idyllic setting.

Cottage Review:  

Amazing characterful property, completely secluded from the outside world with no fear of being overlooked or overheard, ideal when you have an exuberant autistic child. The excellently equipped kitchen was very much apperciated by the mouths hungry from days at the beach. Flopping in front of the stove post meal was a treat while planning the next day over a glass of wine (the fact the satalitte TV showed the Tour de France was a selfish plus). Badminton was played, remote controll cars were crashed and we even set up a rope swing in the trees. Bedrooms lovely, the trip downstairs to the loo a minor inconvenience.

Cottage Review:  

A beautifully restored cottage with nearly all the amenities one could ask for.

The multi fuel fire in the living room was a real hit and we made full use of it as the weather was decidedly chilly.

This lovely cottage comes fully equiped and even has a washing machine AND tumble drier

On arrival we were greeted with a bottle of wine which was very nice and the owner Pete rang on the first evening to make sure we had arrived safely and were comfortable.

Anyone who visits should take a look at the album showing photos of the building during and after the floods at Boscastle, how lucky were Pete and Kay that they didn't lose this lovely home from home!

We were even able to take our beloved dogs, what a find!!

(Note: There is no mobile phone signal but who wants or needs it when you are on holiday????? A quick stroll up the drive got us a signal on Orange and there is a land line on the premises.

The owners, Peter and Kay, have done a fantastic job renovating this cottage and the grounds and were very pleasant and helpful throughout our booking. The cottage was very comfortable with a great wood burner and we were particularly impressed with the riverside terrace. We would have enjoyed our stay at Anderton Mill wherever it was so it was a bonus being so close to some favourite coastal walks and beaches (another vote for Trebarwith Strand!).

Such a beautiful cottage, lovingly restored, in a peaceful idyllic location. The kitchen is equipped brilliantly - It had everything we needed to cook our family meals. Beds were very comfy and the whole cottage was lovely and clean. We particularly enjoyed our cosy nights in front of the wood burning stove, and our 3 year old loved the tree house - a real treat for him. We can't wait to go back.

This cottage looks like it should be on a postcard, it is wonderful with a babbling river running at the back. When you enter the the cottage you will not be disappointed it has everything you need and unlike a lot of cottages we have stayed in it is really comfortable. The owners Pete and Kay have done a fantastic job and are very helpful. There is a pub in the next village of Trasparett, that we would recommend lovely food and a talking parrot called Monty. We stayed a week and it was not long enough even though the weather wasn't kind. Overall we had a wonderful time and will definately be back.

This was our 3rd visit to the cottage and as always enjoyed by all.

If you’re looking for peace and quiet in a tranquil setting then this is an ideal place.

However, if like us you have three active boys to keep entertained after a day spent on the beach body boarding, then here are just a few of our pastimes – extreme river walking, climbing to the tree house on “lookout” complete with walkie talkies, and a first this year we held our own badminton “Olympics” which was great fun and not forgetting our BBQ’s

Amazing setting for a beautiful old mill. Totally secluded with woods surrounding it and a lovely small river running through the property. We took our dog who thoroughly enjoyed exploring the everywhere. Perfectly located for Boscastle and Tintagle, and a lovely local pub about a mile and a half away which has been used on location by Dr. Martin. The cottage was spotless and had everything you could need including a most welcome multifuel burner. Highly recommend!

Truly a wonderful mill cottage in beautiful surroundings.

So peaceful with no chance of any noisy neighbours.

Shared only with the wildlife.

A couple of miles from a main 'A' road down a country lane makes it seem you have your own part of unspoilt Cornwall.

Easy to reach Boscastle and Port Isaac our favourite parts of North Cornwall.

Cottage was well equipped and clean yet retaining its period charm.

All in all highly recommended.

Anderton Mill is a charming, comfortable, very well equipped cottage. It is surrounded by lovely grounds and a beautiful terraced garden by the side of the Valency river with table and sun loungers. Its character reflects the loving care of its owners and we appreciated their sharing it with us.

There are lovely walks on the door step and for lovers of Thomas Hardy lots of associations in the area including St Juliots Church. Boscastle, Tingagel, Trebarwith beach are all close by and well worth visiting. We spent time at Padstow and Rock enjoying Rick Stein's cafe and the lovely golden sands at Rock.

Make up of party:  We took our grandchildren aged 11 and 9 on holiday with. They loved the cottage and grounds, particularly the wonderful, sturdy tree house. They floated paper boats down the river and played safely in its shallow flowing waters. Also enjoyed playing badminton in the garden and had fun with a frizzbie. They aslo loved picking blackberries for a pudding. All in all a lovely holiday. Thank you to our welcoming hosts.

We have been coming to Anderton Mill for the past seven years and it just gets better with every visit as we continue to find new things to do and new places to explore. It is the perfect base and very difficult to leave at the end of ones stay. We loved having the ducks for company last year. The wood burner gives the cottage a warm and cosy feel at the end of the day and the peace and tranquility of the setting could not be bettered. It is the perfect antidote to the hectic lives we all lead. Great credit must go to the owners, Pete and Kay, who have lovingly restored the cottage and allow us to enjoy its comforts each year. We will return, for sure.

The cottage itself is in a superb location and the sound of the river whilst relaxing, whether reading a book or just enjoying a glass of wine is almost hypnotic.

A magical place perfect for couples or families. The cottage, well equipped with great decor and facilities, is a great base for exploring the north Cornwall coast but, come rain or shine, staying at the cottage is a holiday in itself. Breakfast on a sunny terrace at the front of the cottage,lunch on a spacious terrace in the back garden, bbq on the hidden terrace in the evening. While away the day lounging in the secluded garden listening to the babbling river, or "plodge" in the river tickling trout. Pond dip in the large pond. Play poohsticks or race homemade boats from the ford bridge. Feeling adventurous? Set up base camp in the hidden tree house - comfortable enough for young explorers to sleep overnight if you dare! The setting is a wonderful opportunity to paint, draw or photograph. Spot deer, badgers, birds, ducks, foxes... Walk up the hill to the local pub or along country lanes exploring local flora, St Juliot church and the Valency Valley. Pooring with rain? Light a fire in the wood burner and cosy up with a good book. Bliss. We've been coming to the cottage for the last 16 years,intend to continue to do so, and cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

Cottage Review:  

A magical place ideal for couples or a family, perfect for exploring the north Cornwall coast. The cottage is well equipped and decorated to high standard. Breakfast on the sunny terrace at the front, lunch on the slate terrace in the secluded back garden, bbq on the hidden terrace in the evening. Play poohsticks or race home made boats from the ford bridge. Pond dip in the front field or lounge in the back garden listening the river babbling by. Feeling more adventurous, then "plodge" in the river trout tickling. Young adventurers can set up base camp in the secret tree house, comfortable enough to sleep in if you dare. Look out for deer, badgers, ducks and the odd cow! Perfect setting for some drawing, painting or photography. Weather not so perfect? Light a fire in the wood burner and cosy up with a good book. We've been coming to the cottage for the past 16 years, and intend to continue to do so.

The four of us have to Anderton mill for two years running and have enjoyed every minute of our stay. The best of it is,you are totaly secluded in a tranquial setting,but, not far from the coast with all its beautiful bays and sights.

Cottage Review:  

This was our fifth visit and definitely won't be our last! The cottage is set in a truly beautiful location and in a wonderful part of Cornwall with plenty of walks right on the doorstep or the dramatic Atlantic coastline just a short drive away.

The cottage itself is very well equipped, comfortably furnished and decorated to a very high standard.

It is the perfect retreat, a great place to recharge and come rain or shine we always leave with heavy hearts eased only by the thought of returning again next year.

Make up of party:  Husband and me, joined by two very particular German friends from Monday onwards. They too thought the Mill was wonderful and will be recommending it to their freinds back home.

Lovely cottages - we have been 3 times and stayed in two different cottages. They are so well decorated and fitted out, we have stayed in many holiday cottages over the last ten years and these are some of the best we have tried. Very clean, lovely comfortable beds and so convenient for Beverley which is a lovely market town.

This is a truly relaxing holiday cottage. Within a few minutes of arriving the cottage felt like home.

As a location for visiting the sights in Cornwall it was ideal.

This cottage was recommended to us by friends and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Cottage Review: We had the most wonderful holiday, in the main staying put to enjoy the surroundings and beautiful weather we were blessed with. Everything was absolutely perfect, as were our two previous visits.

Guest's Initials: S and A Date of visit: 01/09/2010
Cottage Review: May I take this opportunity to congratulate you both on such a stunning property in such a beautiful location. We all (husband, me and Jasper the dog) had a brilliant week, enjoying the local sights as well as the sunshine on the terrace by the river. The Cornish weather was extremely kind to us.

Guest's Initials: K Date of visit: 01/05/2010
Cottage Review: We had another wonderful holiday and the weather allowed us to make use of the grounds and outside sitting areas! We were, as always, sorry to leave. As you know, this was our fourth visit; we love our holiday at the Mill and would like to book another similar week next year if we may.
Once again, very many thanks for sharing your wonderful cottage with us.

Guest's Initials: R and T Date of visit: 01/04/2009
Cottage Review: Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us. You have restored it beautifully and we enjoyed sitting by the lovely Valency River in peace and tranquillity.
The local walks in the valley and along the coast were very beautiful and we have never seen such a profusion of wild primroses and other wild flowers, mosses and lichens. A delightful experience and one that we hope we can repeat.

Guest's Initials: P Date of visit: 01/10/2009
Cottage Review: We had a splendid holiday in your lovely home. The weather was kind to us, especially good on the coast path walks. Only two really wet days, on which we enjoyed being snug around the stove,

Guest's Initials: Z and R Date of visit: 01/05/2009
Cottage Review: Despite poor weather we enjoyed staying in your beautiful cottage very much. You have obviously worked extremely hard to have produced such an elegant home in a magical setting. We hope we shall be able to go again, those cliff walks need another visit in sunshine,
Thank you. Best wishes,

Guest's Initials: D, J, G and T Date of visit: 01/05/2008
Cottage Review: Just a quick note to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your cottage. The landscape and views are fantastic. The kids particularly enjoyed splashing in the stream and looking for wildlife.
We would love to return to the cottage in the future and will be recommending it to our friends and relations,

Many thanks,

Guest's Initials: T, S, C and D Date of visit: 01/06/2008
Cottage Review: We have just had the most gorgeous week at the Mill and really did not want to come back!
It just gets better. The garden is looking lovely and we made good use of the patio and BBQ area. The girls have had great adventures by the river and pond, amongst the trees and in the tree house.

Roll on next year.

Guest's Initials: T Date of visit: 01/06/2007
Cottage Review: We have had another super week at the cottage. The weather was gorgeous from Tuesday onwards and we spent a lot of time at Crackington Haven exploring the rocks and riding the waves. We walked along the Bude Canal for the first time, watching the wildlife there and from the hide over the marsh. Daisy and Cecily are at the age where they are really getting the most out of the cottage and the garden. We didn’t see them that much as they spent a lot of time in the tree house and climbing through the trees and fields. Many thanks,

Guest's Initials: N and J Date of visit: 01/06/2007
Cottage Review: Just a quick note to tell you how lucky we were to have stumbled across a picture of your fabulous holiday cottage in Burford. We have just spent a fabulous week adventuring, fishing, relaxing and basically being outdoors as much as possible! The cottage was perfectly equipped for a family holiday and our 8 year old thought he had died and gone to heaven to pull up outside his very own tree house!!

Guest's Initials: K Date of visit: 01/09/2007
Cottage Review: We had a wonderful week – there seems to be a general consensus that it was our best holiday due in large part to your beautiful holiday home. If it was mine, I am not sure I would be so generous in sharing it with others! We would very much like to book another week next year.

Guest's Initials: R Date of visit: 01/06/2006
Cottage Review: Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your ‘little bit of Cornish heaven’ it really is idyllic. We had a wonderful time and thanks for the welcoming bottle of wine which we ‘sampled’ on the patio.

Guest's Initials: C and C Date of visit: 01/06/2006
Cottage Review: I cannot tell you what a superb week we had. The weather was absolutely fantastic and the cottage was beautiful. Your directions were very good and we found it straight off! When we arrived and saw the cottage for the first time we were astounded at its beauty!
I would be grateful if you could let us know if you have any weeks free during June, July and August next year ads we would like to revisit. Thank you very much for allowing us to rent your home, it was much appreciated,

Guest's Initials: E Date of visit: 01/09/2005
Cottage Review: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your little bit of paradise and can well understand why you chose that spot for a holiday home. How lovely to be able to escape the rat race to the peace and quiet of North Cornwall. We hope it will be possible to spend another holiday in your Mill sometime during the next year or two.

Guest's Initials: K and P Date of visit: 01/10/2005
Cottage Review: We had a super week at Anderton Mill. Thank you both for allowing us to share in what is such a beautifully tranquil and quite magical place. It really does show you it is possible to literally get away from it all!

Guest's Initials: I and J Date of visit: 01/08/2005
Cottage Review: We had a wonderful week and your cottage surpassed all expectations. It was enchanting! The weather was superb and we found your information very helpful. Thank you so much. We will return.
