Stunning location with excellent road links yet extremely tranquil
Guest Review, David, England, June 2018
Tregoose Old Mill is set in the beautiful Cornish countryside minutes from Cornwall's stunning North Coast. Tregoose is a tiny tranquil rural hamlet in a hidden valley that even many locals have never heard of and yet is only 6 miles from Newquay and 12 miles from Padstow making this the perfect base to explore the beautiful county of Cornwall with its many stunning beaches, beautiful harbour towns and peaceful rolling countryside.
Steeped in history, Tregoose Old Mill dates back to 1750 and stands on the site of an old monastery which befell the anger of Henry VIII during the reformation. The original altar stone can still be seen in the garden and the stone that was used to build the mill is reportedly from the former monastery. A working flour mill has been on this site since the late 1400’s and stopped milling in the 1920’s. The original waterwheel was destroyed many years ago when a group of local boys re opened the mill leat which then washed away the decaying wood structure leaving only part of the original mill wheel spindle which can still be seen on the lower side of the building.
Stephen and Dean Clayton-Madge are the current owners and feel honoured to be part of the next stage of the mill's history. Our first holiday cottage; The Hideaway is unrecognisable now following an extensive refurbishment in 2018. Our desire is to provide luxury country coastal living in surroundings that invite you to relax, enjoy time and forget your phones for a while.
