Helford River & The Lizard

Carne Mill has been beautifully restored and is situated at the head of the beautiful Gillan Creek, in a haven of tranquility right on the water's edge.

The original mill wheel can still be seen, incorporated into the patio area at the rear. The mill has it's own tidal quay and extensive gardens and woodlands, all beautifully kept with a pretty stream running through the grounds and spectacular views of the creek.

The village of Manaccan can be reached through the Mill's own woodlands and is only a 10 minute walk away.

Manaccan has a thatched pub, a Bistro and a village store and Post Office. Approximately a mile down the lane, which runs beside the creek, is St Anthony where boats can be hired and moorings and boat trailer storage can be arranged.

The house has been equipped and decorated to an exceptionally high standard.

Situated a short distance from Helford River, Carne Mill is in a enviable location ideal to explore this part of Cornwall with the Helford River, The Lizard, Coastal Path and many more picturesque coves and creeks.
