Around Wadebridge & Padstow

The market town of Wadebridge is a haven for tourists and an excellent holiday destination. It provides all the usual shopping facilities, banks, a post office and tourist information office, as well as arts and crafts galleries and restaurants. There is an indoor leisure centre and swimming pool, a multi-screen cinema and the John Betjeman Centre, which is housed in the former railway station. Walkers and cyclists can gain access to the Camel Trail, which will take them to Padstow in one direction and to Bodmin and beyond in the other direction. Wadebridge is also part of the Saints Way, which is a sixteen mile cross country walk.

Only five miles from Hawksland Mill is the ancient fishing port of Padstow, which everyone loves to visit. Here you can see the fishing boats and the lobster hatchery, as well as taking a boat trip or the ferry across the River Camel to Rock.

There are numerous safe and sandy beaches within a few miles of Hawksland Mill, not forgetting glorious coastal walks.

Many visitors come to Cornwall for the magnificent gardens such as Trebah, Trelissick and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

We also have a choice of stately homes to visit including Pencarrow House, Lanhydrock,Trerice, Prideaux Place and Cotehele.

'Dear Jane and Richard,

Just a quick email to say thank you again. Our second visit to Well Cottage and we certainly weren't disappointed. The weather may not have been quite up to last years but we still had a lovely time and the cottage was just as we had remembered. Grandma loved it so much she wants to retire there!
Beautiful gardens, peaceful and relaxing. 
Very much looking forward to future visits. 
Kind regards

The Bruce family xx'

“A fantastic place to stay! Jane & Richard are so friendly and obviously work hard to keep the cottages and gardens to a very high standard. Spotlessly clean, with excellent facilities, everything you need for a comfortable stay. I have never stayed in such a pristine holiday home, with such wonderful surroundings. We would love to return one day.”

“I stayed in the Heron Cottage with my twin daughters for a two week family holiday and was not in any way disappointed with my choice. We were welcomed upon arrival by the owners Jane and Richard (very nice people) before Richard showed us around the property. Richard and Jane live on site and although very unobtrusive, were always on hand. The cottage itself was fantastic. Well designed, very comfortable, maintained to a very high standard and contained everything you could need. It is set in a beautiful, quiet location whilst being ideal to explore Cornwall. Cornwall is a beautiful county and well worth a visit and I would highly recommend staying at one of the properties at Hawksland Mill. Thank you Jane and Richard and we look forward to a return visit.”

“The owners of Hawksland Mill were very welcoming, helpful, and hospitable. The cottage was immaculately-presented, located in beautiful surroundings, and very child-friendly. Within easy reach of Padstow and Newquay, and with excellent facilities in very nearby Wadebridge, we found it to be an excellent base for our stay in Cornwall and would most certainly stay again. Thanks for having us!”

"Another very comfortable stay at Hawksland Mill. Spotlessly clean accommodation with everything you could need for self catering holiday. Near to Wadebridge and Padstow. We have stayed here many times and will be returning again in the future."

'Great place to explore Cornwall
Hawksland Mill,, Hawksland, St Issey , Wadebridge, PL27 7RG, United Kingdom
We (2 adults, 2 teenagers) spent two very relaxing weeks at the Leat Cottage. The cottage and and the surrounding gardens are well maintained and very clean. We particularly liked breakfasting in the conservatory which has a great view of the countside. The quality of the furniture and appliances is high and exceeded our expectations. Richard and Jane are very helpful and easily reached for any questions. We used the cottage as our base to explore Cornwall - from Boscastle, Tintagel, Newquay, St. Austell, St. Ives, St Michels Mount to Lands End. Most places can be reached in less than one hours driving. Wadebridge, the which is just a few minutes away, is a nice small town with many restaurants and shops, but not as crowded as Newquay or Padstow.'
