Little Mill is an idyllic couple’s retreat for those looking for peace and tranquillity in Cornwall. Located only a mile from the coastal village of Portwrinkle in South East Cornwall, this one bedroom barn conversion is situated in a picturesque setting, surrounded by beautiful woodland and vineyards. 200 metres from the barn is a private lake for guests to enjoy, perfect for wild swimming, a spot of fishing or simply just to stroll around on a sunny afternoon. In addition to the pretty surroundings, Little Mill has its own private garden with fresh water stream, providing the perfect alfresco dining spot in the evening or a place to enjoy your favourite brew in the morning. The property has been renovated throughout, offering modern yet charming ground floor accommodation.

Portwrinkle is a small coastal village in South East Cornwall. Formerly a fishing village, Portwrinkle is now better known for its proximity to the 4 mile stretch of sandy beach at Whitsand Bay, only 2 miles from Little Mill. Often considered to be Cornwall’s secret corner, the Rame Peninsula is home to tidal creeks, sandy beaches backed by rocky outcrops, rolling fields and country parks. Tiny villages are dotted around and this stretch of coast fronting Whitsand Bay has expansive views across glistening seas, spectacular walks along the South West Coast Path and one of the few surfing spots on this side of the county.

Local Area

Portwrinkle, in Cornish Porthwykkel, is located on the southeast coast of Cornwall. This small village has a fine view along Whitsand Bay and a history going as far back as medieval times.

Portwrinkle has two main beaches Finnygook and Hoodny Cove, and smaller beaches nearby, at low tide, there are plenty of rock pools to explore with their variety of sea life. Access to both beaches is by steep paths and limited at high tide.  On the cliffs above these two main beaches there are two small car parks (only a few minutes walk away). There are also toilets nearby.

Finnygook is south facing and stands on the eastern side of Portwrinkle.  It is sandy, backed by cliffs and is the most popular beach for experienced surfers and families, but please take notice of the on-site warnings regarding swimming and the cliffs.   Hoodny Cove is adjacent to the quay and harbour and is on the western side.  

Please be aware, there is no lifeguard service at either of Portwrinkle's beaches although rescue equipment is available. Another beach located nearby is Britain Cove.  This is a secluded sandy beach which is small at high tide. 


We all very much enjoyed our stay at Little Mill. Such a peaceful and relaxing place, just what we were looking for, George enjoyed meeting his new friend too. Thank you for the biscuits, soap and delicious apple juice. Hope to see you again!Mrs Gillian Rouse - 21st September 2018
What a great place! So peaceful! Loved the soap, biscuits etc. We walked from Little Mill to the coast path to Portwrinkle and Downderry - a lovely few days break. Thank you. Mrs Lorraine Page Brown - 12th September 2018
We had a lovely holiday. A lovely place, very peaceful. Everything you could need is provided. John enjoyed the fishing too! A great place to stay and Millie our dog enjoyed it too! A forgotten part of Cornwall we had not previously discovered. Would definitely return to Little Mill in the future. Good luck with the Vineyard, look forward to sampling the wine one day! Mrs Karen Stanley - 7th September 2018
The cottage is a perfect retreat from everyday life. I would highly recommend it. I would highly recommend Cornish Horizons, we were able to book flexible dates at short notice in an ideal cottage. I particularly like the search option where you can search on time it takes to get to property.Mrs Jennifer Trayhern - 28th August 2018
