I have lived in Cornwall for over 40 years and love everything about the county. Originally from Cambridge I guess it’s the rolling hills, the great beaches, with towering cliffs and sheltered coves, stunning scenery and water-sports that attracts. Lester and I ran Adventure Sports in Cornwall since 1994 (Lester established it in 1982) then in 2001 moved the business to St Tropez France. We love all kinds of Outdoor Sports and are qualified Instructors in just about every activity you can think of and love it all.

At the end of 2016 we decided to return to Cornwall for good. We saw Millpool and totally fell in love with it. It is simply a gem, and I will never tire of walking in the gardens. Even working in the gardens is such great fun. There is so much wildlife to see – and all so friendly and beautiful. It puts the biggest smile on my face. Attached to the house is self-contained annexe we call the Lodge. We are happy to offer the Lodge for self-catering holidays and all guests are invited to enjoy and share the beauty of our wonderful gardens.
