This cosy little cottage for two is found in the Cornish village of Gweek which sits at the head of the Helford River, about 3.5 miles from the market town of Helston. An ideal spot from which to explore the glorious Lizard Peninsula with its many quaint fishing villages clustered around picturesque harbours and creeks. It is a stunningly beautiful area at any time of the year and as a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there is so much to discover here.

Old Mill Cottage is stylishly finished and situated close to the centre of the village with a good pub 5 minutes walk away. The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is close by and if you fancy some fun why not try out Cornwall Segway at Goonhilly Satellite Station. Trebah Gardens near Falmouth is well worth a visit and be sure to take a trip to Kynance Cove to marvel at the glorious views from the cliff-tops on the walk down.

We have had a wonderful relaxing two weeks here and could stay happily two weeks more. The cottage has everything we needed. The peace and tranquility was perfect. Thank you to Patrick - you made us feel very welcome. We love Cornwall and I'm sure we'll be back.Joan and David, Manchester
We have had a wonderful time, beautiful place to stay. The cottage is perfect and fish & chips on the green, excellent. Hope to be returning soon!Janette & David from Kidderminster
We have had a lovely week in a very beautiful part of the world. A great place to stay - loved the peace. Thank you.Nicky and Dayne, Bath
We had a wonderful time at Old Mill Cottage. The little garden was wonderful, lots of beautiful hydragea and really private. Maddie was really helpful when we had problems with the WiFi and she did literally everything that so that we could get access to the internet. We can only recommend this lovely cottage: the location, a great bed and really fluffy towels. Gweek is a great place to start excursions to lots of interesting places in Cornwall - the Lizard, St. Ives, St. Michael's Mount and the coast in general. Thank you very much!Eva Amann, Germany
The cottage was perfect - well located to discover Cornwall. Well-equipped in a very cute village. We really enjoyed staying there. A good address to keep!Valerie Kromm, France
We enjoyed our stay in Old Mill Cottage so much that we are looking forward to returning sometime in the future to explore more of this lovely part of Cornwall. The cottage is very comfortable and peaceful and has everything we needed. Patrick the owner of the cottage was very helpful with information on the surrounding area. A great place to stay for exploring this part of Cornwall.Lyn & John, Stafford
