In the heart of the lovely wooded seclusion of the Morden Valley, Mill Cottage is an attractive semi-detached cottage, part of the stylish gabled house with tall brick chimneys that was built in the 1860s for the miller at Cotehele. With abundant wildlife all around, the views from the latticed windows of the cottage are across a flower-rich meadow to the stream and woods beyond. The cottage has its own small, enclosed garden. Sawmill cottage which sleeps 4 people is nearby. In the mill building opposite, you can watch the mill in action twice a week throughout the season, and its excellent stone-ground flour is available to buy: it will make you want to bake!
The Quay at Cotehele is the harbour for the Shamrock which is the only surviving Tamar Barge, which used to transport dock dung and roadstone, mostly between Truro and Falmouth.
Further afield, The Tamar Valley has plenty to offer including walking, cycling and horse riding. If you prefer to relax and let the train take the strain, the Tamar Valley Line from Plymouth to Gunnislake crossing the impressive Calstock viaduct showcases this beautiful landscape.
