Quirky and unique, Roscarrack Mill makes a very special holiday hideaway close to the coast. This sympathetically Grade II listed converted mill has the third largest working waterwheel in Cornwall and ticks all the boxes for originality and personality. Set in five acres of land with meadow, orchard, top field and enclosed garden, guests can roam this delightful farmstead, help feed the resident horses and enjoy the fresh produce of eggs, organic potatoes and tomatoes! Nestled in Maen Valley in Falmouth, Roscarrack Mill offers the best of both worlds; tranquil, rural escapism or seaside resort liveliness!
Falmouth's attractions are so close by! With a choice of sandy beaches for a swim, surf, kayak or beach cafe nibble, a harbour offering pleasure boat and fishing trips, galleries, maritime museum and the historic Pendennis Castle all within a half hour walk or few minutes drive, this popular corner of Cornwall has something for everyone. Garden lovers can wander the sub-tropical ravine at Trebah Garden with secluded beach or visit National Trust's Glendurgan Garden. Budock village sits two miles west of Falmouth and The Sanctuary near to The Trelowarren Arms is a worthy pit stop for refreshment and excellent food. The Meadery is also a popular spot - make use of the good bus service! The Lizard Peninsula boasts beautiful secret coves and charismatic fishing villages ready for exploration within easy reach.
Charmingly rustic, Roscarrack Mill is a fusion of character and homely comforts. The sitting room is the hub of the home with squashy sofas, a big hearth and a wood burner perfect for kicking back and relaxing beside. Retreat to the reading room with a good book. The farmhouse kitchen is delightful with a feature range and breakfast table for lazy brunches and the dining space is a social spot for feasts and family board games. There are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and gorgeous orchard views, plus a retro bathroom on the first floor. The outdoor space provides exceptional variety; the orchard is a fabulous spot for children to play ball games, fly kites and is a must for sunshine picnics.
