    My husband and myself and Thea the Labrador had a lovely stay at Lower Mill Cottage. It was extremely cosy and everything you needed was catered for. The area was great for walking and exploring Devon and Cornwall. We took the owners recommendation and went to Cawsand and Kingsand and had a great time . The local pub was only a short walk away and was very friendly and served great food . All in all we would recommend this cottage to friends and will definitely go back .

    Lovely cosy cottage for 2 set in a beautiful garden. Very private, tucked away at the end of a lane. Good sized rooms, modern kitchen and bathroom. Very comfortable with excellent facilities etc. A warm cottage with good central heating, ideal for off season breaks. Excellent value for money. Nice pub 5 minutes walk.

    Normally we choose a fresh location for each of our many self-catering holidays, \we were thoroughly delighted with this second visit. Lower Mill is worth an even better rating than you give it.

    Our 4th visit to this truly beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings. The owners Mr and Mrs Nail are so very helpful and welcoming - even booked a doctors appointment for my Husband!. On arrival at the cottage a delicious Devon cream tea awaits you in the kitchen. The cottage is extremely well equipped, everything you could possibly need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. The gardens surrounding the property are lovely to wander through with the river tumbling past. so relaxing to listen to as you fall asleep at night.

    We found the cottage very comfortable, tastefully furnished, and having everything that we could possibly want. The owners were very friendly and keen to ensure that our holiday was best it could be, and a cream tea on arrival showed their commitment. The location was ideal with plenty of places to visit, the walking opportunities were excellent, and coming back to such a beautiful garden from a day trip was an absolute pleasure. If we returned to the same area, Lower Mill Cottage would definitely be number 1 on our list.
