Hicks Mill Self Catering Holiday Cottages

Our two beautifully presented, adjoining self catering holiday cottages (sleeping a total of 7, 4+3) form part of a 17th Century Water Mill near Truro and are the perfect place for adults to relax in a lovely central quiet countryside location, so peaceful you won't want to leave. Both cottages have high speed Broadband!

The perfect base for your holiday

Our 350 year old historic Water Mill in Bissoe, on the edge of Perranwell Station, lies equi-distant between Falmouth and the Cathedral City of Truro, with its ample shops, theatre, restaurants and supermarkets. With the north and south coasts only a short drive away, this is an ideal base to visit all the wonderful attractions Cornwall has to offer. The holiday cottages are only 10 minutes to the tin mines of Poldark country on the north coast.

A delicious cream tea on arrival

Suzy and Alan Maxted offer a warm welcome at the start of your holiday with Cornish Cream Tea, wine chocolates laid out to greet you for your stay at Hicks Mill Cottages. Our  luxury self catering cottages are in a courtyard setting and in a spectacular location nestling at the bottom of a peaceful rural valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the perfect place to unwind on your vacation.

Each cottage has its own garden so guests can enjoy the Cornish sunshine and there's ample parking on site. The Stables are ideal for those with slight mobility issues and parking directly outside the cottage - we will do our best to cater for your needs.

If you want peace and tranquility......look no further!!

Once you've unpacked, put your feet up and chill out with a glass of wine on the terrace and watch the buzzards circle above - perfect!!

As we focus mainly on catering for adults (sorry no children under 10, or pets) and The Old Mill is also our home, we're always on hand to offer help and advice to enable your holiday to run smoothly.
