A beautifully converted mill on a courtyard of buildings in the grounds of Cosawes Barton in rolling countryside about 15 minutes drive north of Falmouth. Awarded Silver in the 2016/17 Cornwall Tourism Awards. Dog friendly and set in 17 acres of woodlands and walks.

Awarded Silver in the 2016/17 Cornwall Tourism Awards

Set on a small courtyard of original buildings in the grounds of the beautiful house at Cosawes Barton, Carvosso Mill was newly converted for the 2013 season. The property has been fitted out to the highest of standards in a really comfortable style by the very caring Owners. A wonderful spot, the perfect location to either explore Cornwall or as a base to the Falmouth area, Cosawes Barton is a magical place. Dogs are very welcome and the Owners have 17 acres of woodlands and walks where you are welcome to stroll around at your leisure.

Carvosso Mill is set out all on one level with ease of access for all. The conversion has a fantastic octagonal full height space which was originally the farm horse engine house or ‘gin-gang’ where a horse would have turned the spindle and powered the farm threshing machine. This space now forms the superbly presented open plan living room and kitchen. The bedroom areas would have been the stables for the hard working farm horses.

Ground Floor only: Living room / kitchen / dining room with fully fitted hand built kitchen with a cosy wood burning stove. A corridor leads to the master bedroom with 5' double bed with TV and en-suite bathroom with over bath shower & WC. Second double bedroom with 4'6" double bed followed by a twin room. There is a family shower / wet room & WC.
Exterior: There is a private garden for the exclusive use of guests at Carvosso Mill. External furniture is provided and BBQ facilities are available. A separate storage room is available for bicycles, surfboards, boots & buggies. There is also a games room available in the courtyard and a climbing frame in a communal field.

Heating is via central heating and the wood burning stove. The kitchen has a range of modern equipment. There is an electric oven and hob, a microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge / freezer, dishwasher and washer / dryer. The living room area has a flatscreen digital TV & DVD player, CD player & iPod dock.

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!
