About Claire Hambly

Willow Mill has been a family home since 1999, we started running it as a holiday let in 2016.

Claire Hambly purchased this farmhouse in 2016

Why Claire Hambly chose Saint Kew

The house is characterful and is comfortable and warm. The location in the heart of the village next to the stream, village church and close to the St Kew Inn is magical. Our children love having adventures in the woods, making dens and playing in the stream. It is a great place to unwind after a day at the beach or a long coastal walk.

Willow Mill - Spacious idyllic mill near Port Isaac set in peaceful gardens
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described - charming, comfortable and homely. It is well equipped and with lovely peaceful gardens and room for outdoor dining.More than enough room for our party of five adults. It provided us with the perfect base for exploring Port Isaac, Padstow, Bude and other areas of Cornwall, the nearby St Kew Inn is an easy few minutes walk away and well worth a visit.

Would definitely return for a second visit.

Willow Mill is a beautiful character cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Cornwall and 2nd visit to Willow Mill. The cottage fitted us ( a group of 6 adults and 2 dogs) so well we didn't even look for any alternative accommodation for our 2nd time to Cornwall. We love the fact this is a family run property which is still used by the family and feels extremely homely. Excellent access to a main road which makes sight seeing a large area very easy. Also a stones throw from the most amazing pub "St Kew Inn".

Overall a very well run cottage which is homely and full of character. We will be sure to visit again 😀
