Anderton Mill, Boscastle

Holiday cottage/Self catering

Anderton Mill is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, located in the Valency Valley, upstream from the fishing village of Boscastle. Sleeping four in two bedrooms, it provides superb family accommodation in a beautiful location, but is also ideal for couples wishing to get away from it all. 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.

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.
