Beautiful cottage in gorgeous grounds
Fantastic cottage - couldn’t fault it. Home from home for all the family including the dog.
Lots of beaches nearby and within easy reach of Truro, Falmouth and St Ives. Beautiful dog friendly beach with miles of sand in Porthkidney. Lovely boat trip from Falmouth.
Thank you so much for this lovely review. It really means a lot to us. So glad you had a lovely time and hope to see you again soon x
Very clean, spacious and peaceful accommodation.
Have recommended to other family members looking to stay down near Truro
Lovely 3 night stay at the Carvoso Mill.
A great place to stay
We booked this without any prior knowledge of the area but it turned out to be a perfect location for our needs. We had some friends who stayed with us for a few days and they have two labradors. Originally we had booked the adjoining cottage but when she knew we would have dogs staying the owner (Louise) recommended Carvosso Mill as it had direct access to an enclosed garden. A small point but a thoughtful one which added to our holiday experience. The accommodation lived up to it's promise and the surrounding grounds were wonderful for a quick walk with the dogs or just a stroll listening to the birds.
The owners were just round the corner and were attentive without being obtrusive.
In conclusion, it did everything it said on the tin and we would certainly recommend it as long as you are not seeking to walk to numerous pubs or restaurants every day. There is no shortage of both pubs and restaurants and we visited both, but we did have to drive to them. It's also an ideal location to access all the lovely beaches and quaint villages and towns in the area.
Our 2nd stay at this fabulous location. Couldn't ask for more, Quiet, comfortable, central & beautiful.
Hi Sally - thank you so much for this amazing review! It was a real pleasure to have you stay with us again - hope to see you again soon! Louise x

What a fantastic review! Thank you so much! Louise x
Ponsanooth is a traditional Cornish village with a very particular heritage. It is home to the Kennel Vale Nature Reserve – a fabulous unspolit place to explore, walk and take in the wildlife and scenery of this lovely place. It also provides a great base for exploring the county more generally, being equidistant between Truro and Falmouth as well as being only a short drive to the North coast. Cosawes Barton is approximately 15 minutes' drive from Falmouth, 20 minutes from Truro and 30 minutes from the North Coast. The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesday & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little independent shops and boutiques.
Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and places to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors' lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events.
For those wanting to take in the fresh air of Cornwall and blow away all stress, the opportunities for enjoying your time in this location are almost endless. From the sailing courses at Mylor Harbour or Stithians reservoir which are available throughout the summer (ideal for older children looking for an active holiday), kayaking days, fishing at Argal Reservoir, glorious cliff walks on the coastal path or cycling the old mining trails – simply take your pick. The choice of local sandy beaches is also stunning – from Gyllingvase & Swanpool in Falmouth which are wonderfully sunny south facing spots, to the quieter and more secluded beaches of the Roseland (a particular favourite of the children of the current owners) which are only a ride on the King Harry Ferry away. You can take a longer boat trip to beautiful St Mawes for the day or sail around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea!
