In the heart of the beautiful village of St Kew near Port Issac, a comfortable converted mill and barn (sleeps 8 and 6 respectively) set within wonderful peaceful gardens with woodland and a stream. Nestled below the village church of St James and a short walk from the renowned St Kew Inn. Ideally located close to Port Isaac (Doc Martin), Polzeath (for surfing), Rock (sailing and windsurfing) and Padstow. A wonderful private place to retreat to after a day at the beach, sightseeing or walking the coastal path. Changeover day is Saturday unless otherwise agreed with the owner.
Willow Mill and Little Barn share the same plot and are situated at either end of a 100m private drive, ideal accommodation for groups of friends and larger family groups. Willow Mill sits at the top of the drive and sleeps 8 people in four bedrooms (two super kings, one triple, one single). Little Barn, at the bottom drive, accommodates 6 in 3 bedrooms (one double , two singles in L shape bunks, and one double on a mezzanine). Great for all groups but being two separate buildings it is perfect for groups who may want independence or privacy such as those with young families or possibly grandparents looking for peace and quiet. A travel cot and high chair are at your disposal in both properties
