A delightful detached Cornish cottage located in a lovely setting within the pretty village of Rilla Mill. This charming cottage dates back to 1800’s and has recently been refurbished by its current owners to create a lovely cosy character feel. It is deceptive with an extension to the rear believed to have been added many years ago. The current owners Helen and Rob have retained the character yet created a modern feel too.

The cottage is set on an elevated position within the village and has its own gardens with a fabulous outlook over the valley and surrounding area. A wooden gate gives you access to a small courtyard gravelled garden with a range of colourful beds and herb pots. There is a lockable bike storage area for guests wanting to secure their bikes. The main entrance is via a wooden stable door leading into the charming kitchen/diner having an attractive slate floor. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need and has a central dining table. A cottage doorway leads into a cosy and comfortable living room with a feature log fire, great for those winter evenings where you can snuggle down on one of the sofas a relax after a day of exploring, maybe with a glass of red! Double doors open from here onto the garden which is enclosed with a post and rail fence covered in wire mesh making it suitable for dogs. There is a lawn and pretty flower borders and there are fabulous views over the village and surrounding area, this is where you can enjoy the Cornish sunshine with a bit of alfresco dining perhaps with a glass of Pimms or two!

Chartwell Cottage comfortably accommodates 1-3 people having a spacious double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and single bedroom both on the first floor. The first floor bathroom has been recently renovated with a fitted shower over a bath with WC and wash hand basin. The property is warmed by oil fired central heating which is easily operated and of course the wood burning stove in the living room creates a great amount of heat!

The local Inn is located just across the village road and offers a good rustic environment with local ales and excellent home cooked food and a “take away” option which always comes in handy after those days exploring the county. 

The owners would love to welcome your pets to stay (on the ground floor only) and will provide dog accessories such as feeding bowls, dog crate and even treats! Dogs are also welcome in the village pub. There are some great local walks a “stones throw” from the cottage whether it’s with a dog or not!

We will provide you with all information on nearby attractions and visitor centres in the cottage on arrival.
