Cornmill, a working Mill until the 1930’s with origins in the 17th Century, was totally refurbished into what is now an utterly gorgeous house. Set on its own in a glorious, peaceful valley and surrounded by wooded hills and meadows with Tor Brook meandering along the edge of the garden, this stunning property is very spacious and beautifully furnished and decorated. The owner is an interior designer with impeccable taste that is reflected in every room with artefacts, pictures, fittings and superb furniture creating an extremely stylish and comfortable home set in lovely surroundings and only 3 miles from Kingsbridge in the very heart of the South Hams. What more could you want!

Good stay and lovely, well-presented, maintained and equipped property. The only detracting factor was the exceptionally narrow lane with almost no passing places. Meeting any traffic coming in the opposite direction was far from enjoyable. I guess this won't be an issue for some guests of course...
other than the narrow bed excellent and good service from THC
Second year at amazing Cornmill This time with Mediterranean weather .....So absolutely perfect week ???????????? Thankyou THC X
Superb property, enjoyed our immensely.
We had a wonderful family week .
Our return to Cornmill for a second week having visited in 2016 and something hopefully we'll be able to continue doing every couple of years. The property is stunning and suits us absolutely - we just love the house, grounds and location and also the furnishings and artwork. The house was perfectly clean and ready for us. Add to that the fabulous May weather we had, this was a perfect break bar a week being too short!
We all had a wonderful time and could hardly bear to leave. Apart from the house, which we loved , the garden and terrace were perfect for a family of very mixed ages ! The family have requested a return next summer and I would love to return with friends at some other time. Can't rate Cornmill highly enough and Toadhall Cottages management of it Many Thanks to all concerned Chilcott Family
We had a wonderful week staying at Cornmill and would return to the property or book another of your houses in the area . The garden was perfect for both the dogs and the humans as was the interior of the house .
The house was lovely , large enough to accomodate us, and a large dog, with plenty of room to spare. It was lovely seeing some personal pictures and photos. The weather was fantastic so we made good use of the garden and patio facilities. Thank you.
Our third stay at Cornmill and yet again had a absolutely wonderful holiday. The new patio and garden furniture are a brilliant new addition
Beautiful house very comfortable had a lovely week with my family loved the aga .would certainly stay there again Shirley Taylor
Wow wow wow , we have just spent a long weekend in this absolutely wonderful house. 11 ladies attended and found the house to be even better than the photos. Great areas for all of the party to spend time together, we were blessed with fab weather so the outside patio was fantastic, with evening spent in the big dining area and lounge. Would definitely return or advise as a great place to stay ðŸ˜œðŸ˜€ðŸ˜€
Fabulous cottage. Worked so well for a family get together. Beautiful location. The kids and dog loved the stream. The adults loved the kitchen/dining area. The new patio area is stunning.
We stayed as a party of 9 and loved every minute. Love the Aga, love the rooms, furniture, yard, blackberry picking, local nursery cafe, loved the lot. Only comment, it is difficult to find but we are Australian and can't believe they call these farm tracks roads!
Thankyou Toad Hall Cottages for allowing us and our friends to the opportunity to have a wonderful holiday together with our families
We had a wonderful family holiday. Thankyou very much.
Our second stay at Cornmill in 3 years. Fab property and location. Clearly loved and well maintained. Only issue was the state of ALL the windows. Filthy inside and out. Really spoilt the amazing views. Certainly wouldn't stop us staying again though.
<p> Many thanks for your comments and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. This is the first instance we have had any negative feedback with regards to the cleanliness of the windows and so expect it to be an isolated incident. We have passed the comments on and we will also monitor ourselves.</p> <p> <strong>Toad Hall Cottages</strong></p>
