Ta Mill is ideally situated for touring both Cornwall and Devon. Nearby attractions include the North cornish coastline, Boscastle, Tintagel, Bude, Padstow and Port Isaac, renowned for the filming of Doc Martin and the historic market town of Launceston with its castle ruins. Eden project and Heligan gardens are well worth a visit. National Trust properties such as Lanhydrock and Cotehele are popular destinations. Although Ta Mill is hidden away in its own peaceful valley, it is superbly situated for visiting the North and South coasts of Cornwall, both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor and of course countless gardens and historic houses and castles.

About Helen Shopland
I was brought up on a farm, just across the border in Devon and went to school in Launceston, so I guess I'm 'Devonish', a mixture of Devonshire and Cornish! I lived and worked away for nearly 10 years before buying Ta Mill, roughly co-inciding with the birth of my first child. Over 16 years later, a second child, plus a sheep dog, cat and many more sheep, Ta Mill has been lovingly renovated and provides a unique hideaway for exploring the beautiful county of Cornwall.
Helen Shopland purchased this farmhouse in 1997
Why Helen Shopland chose Launceston
Ta Mill is a one-off place. When you first drive along the little country lane on your way to Ta Mill, with the silohettes of Rough Tor and Brown Willy on the horizon you are immediately struck by the magical location. After a couple of miles, you reach Ta Mill and drive down through the tunnel of trees to the secluded hollow where the cottages and lodges are nestled. This unique setting is a real gem and the accommodation allows visitors to experience the quiet ambience for themselves.
What makes this farmhouse unique
A haven for Nature it is a very relaxing and picturesque setting. It is ideally located, being 15 minutes from the stunning North Cornish cornish coastline and a few miles from the rugged Bodmin Moor.

Ta Mill is truely a special place and we hope those who stay will feel refreshed and relaxed after a peaceful break in this beautiful setting.
