The Old Mill House in Little Petherick, a stunning hamlet near Padstow. This substantial building is a gem waiting to be continued as a business, or turned into a family home.
Set in a tranquil spot with extensive gardens and the creek running by, this Grade II listed former corn house is currently run as a successful B&B business. Parts of the building date back to the 16th century and the original waterwheel of the mill is still intact outside.
The impressive period property includes seven en-suite bedroom guest accommodation and a 25-cover restaurant that holds a 2020 AA Rosette. There’s also one en-suite bedroom owner’s accommodation.
Properties of this scale very rarely become available in this area and within such close proximity to Padstow and, subject to planning, the Old Mill House would also make a wonderful home.
The interiors are warm and well decorated, retaining many original features including exposed oak beams, large fireplaces and stone floors.
Did you know? Little Petherick is served by a modest-looking parish church, however step inside and you’ll find one of the most extravagant interiors of any small village church. The Buildings of England- Cornwall by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner and Peter Beecham describe it as – “one of the architectural highlights of Cornwall.”
Did you know? Little Petherick stands on the Saints Way, a 27-mile route from Padstow to Fowey that loosely follows the route taken by medieval pilgrims travelling from Wales and Ireland to Santiago de Compostella in Galicia, Spain.
