The property

Nestled in the hamlet of Rilla Mill, Little Hamlin is a short distance from the wild granite landscape of Bodmin Moor, and within easy access of the south Cornish coastline. Close to the Cornwall- Devon border, it makes a superb base from which to discover both counties, with tranquil creeks and rivers, beautiful woodlands and fabulous seaside resorts ready for exploration. Coastal footpaths and inland walks are plentiful. Golitha Falls is a nearby captivating destination, with spectacular waterfalls that weave their way through ancient oak and beech oodlands. The fascinating prehistoric and geological sites of Bodmin Moor can be reached from Minions which is two miles away, popular among walkers for its heritage centre located in the disused engine house. Located within a short drive are the formal gardens at the National Trust owned Lanhydrock,Cotehele and Antony House, famed for their stunning blooms. The renowned Eden Project, whose biodomes are filled with flora and fauna from around the globe are a naturalist's paradise. The expansive surfing beaches at Whitsand Bay, Seaton and Downderry and the scenic south west footpath are also within easy reach. The neighbouring village of Upton Cross is home to The Sterts open air theatre offering entertainment and dining facilities.

About the location

LISKEARD

Looe 9 miles, Bodmin 13 miles.

Rilla Mill is splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon. It is a charming village set in a wooded valley on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Bodmin Moor is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beginning a 5 minute drive away as does the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site Caradon Mining District. The remoteness of the Area means it is a wonderful place to escape the crowds, cycling or on foot, and discover wide open moorland, unique natural habitats, and ancient and industrial landscapes. A recent designation of the whole area as one of only 3 International Dark Sky Parks in the UK means that the view of the stars at night from Rilla Mill is wonderful. One mile away at Upton Cross is the covered outdoor Sterts Theatre and Arts Centre where a full program of exhibitions and performances are produced throughout the summer months. The popular fishing village, Looe, is 15 miles away. With its picturesque harbour, sandy beaches, boat trips, many small shops, restaurants, pubs, it is a wonderful centre for a day out or starting point for walks on the coast path to Fowey or Seaton and Downderry, Kingsand and Cawsand. The Maritime city of Plymouth is 20 miles away where big stores, concert venues, theatres and the historic Hoe with its views of Plymouth Sound make it a must see day out. The British Fireworks Competition which takes place on 3 evenings every August is a wonderful sight that can be viewed, free, from the Hoe to name just one event that takes place in this great natural amphitheatre. Plymouth is also a gateway to the beauty of Dartmoor. Lanhydrock, Cotehele,and Buckland Abbey are beautiful historic houses and gardens owned by the National Trust within a ½ hour drive. 15 miles away near Tavistock is Morwhellam Quay; a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work.
