Mr Peter Forse purchased this Cottage in 1973
Why Mr Peter Forse chose Boscastle
We stumbled across Anderton Mill by chance when walking in the area. At the time it was a complete ruin but we fell in love with its stunning position in the Valency Valley. We spent the next 15 years lovingly restoring it, as time and money allowed. It is now a very special home. We were delighted to receive Rural Property of the Year Award for 2011. Although we visit often, we have been letting Anderton Mill for almost 20 years, with many of our guests returning year after year - the record being 16 years in succession! North Cornwall remains one of the least spoilt areas of Great Britain and the Vallency Valley is a very special place. We have spent many happy times here with our family and friends.
What makes this Cottage unique
We always enjoy the peace and tranquility of the cottage; the abundance of wildlife and the variety offered by the seasons. Sitting outside on a warm evening is a real joy, listening to the river and gazing at stars we don't see in the city. This place is unique - something that our guests often comment on.

Just come back from a week at Anderton Mill. The cottage had been lovingly restored by Peter and Kaye and is home from home. Idyllic location with only the sound of birds and the river flowing. Ideal location for trips to the North Cornish coast. Daymer beach, Trebarwith Strand, Boscastle, Padstow to name but a few within easy reach and worth a visit. Peter and Kaye made us very welcome with a bottle of bubbly for my birthday and cream teas! Highly recommend this beautiful cottage and it’s extensive grounds, perfect for our four legged friend and a relaxing retreat for us!
Thank you for your lovely review, Vicky and Simon. It was great to meet you and we are so glad that you enjoyed our cottage.
With our best wishes

Breathtakingly beautiful, everything you need with peace and tranquility.
A simply stunning, well maintained and homely cottage with beautiful gardens. The perfect place to 'get away from it all' and relax with the peaceful sound of the water running through the river in the gardens. A tree house, actually built into a tree provided so much fun for the kids aswell as many places to explore and play hide and seek!
Kay and Pete called before our first day and gave very clear instructions on how to find and access the mill. We also chatted about places to go, eat and things to do with the kids.
We were welcomed on the first day with fresh flowers, fresh milk and a cream tea with plenty of scones and the cottage was beautifully furnished and very clean.
Everything we needed was there and the 'red folder' was very useful too.
We did so much; crabbing in Padstow, climbing at Tintagel, Boscastle Farm Shop, Port Isaac, Daymer Bay, Callestick ice cream Farm, beautiful beach at Perranporth and by far the favourite - Trebarwith Strand! We went there 3 times including a very windy day just to watch the waves! A particular favourite of our dog's too!
We will definitely return returning to Anderton Mill, thank you so much to Kay and Pete for a wonderful holiday.
Thank you Sasha and Dan for a wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you to stay at the mill and we look forward to welcoming you back. We're so glad you enjoyed it as much as we do.

Beautiful house and gardens. Really cosy and comfortable. The setting was stunning and well located.
We had a great week at the mill. It’s perfect for exploring the local area or just relaxing in the beautiful gardens. The boys loved the treehouse and the nearby water.
There is no WiFi but we found that a blessing rather than a hindrance and even our fourteen year old agreed!
Perfect for getting away from it all.
Thank you for your lovely review, which is really appreciated. We are so glad you enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the cottage and hopefully look forward to your return at some point in the future.

Second time we have stayed at Anderton Mill and it was as perfect as it was the first time. So picturesque and a beautiful cottage. 100% relaxation when we stay here even with a 12 year old. The cottage has everything you need and The owners can’t do enough to ensure a great stay. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable Already looking to rebook
Thank you so much for your lovely review.
Good to know that you had a relaxing time, there certainly is something really special about the Valency Valley. Hope to see you back soon.
Pete and Kay
Relaxing break in superb surroundings
Property is excellent; it is well maintained, clean and has excellent facilities. We arrived during a cold spell and were greeted with a wonderful cream tea and heat from the multi-fuel stove. Pete and Kay are always adding new things and this year we came across an extra patio! The location is brilliant for a beach or walking holiday and the nearby Boscastle Farm Shop is great for a range of local produce and cup of tea.
A week's stay in April at Anderton Mill
Superb location, quiet and tranquil surroundings, a great escape from the hustle and bustle. Pete and Kay laid on a lovely cream tea reception which was most welcome. This was our 7th visit (maybe 8th); we keep coming back for more.
Great that you were able to return again and enjoy the tranquility of the Valency Valley. Hope to see you again soon!
