Tubbs Mill House

A haven of peace near Cornwall's southern gems 

Tubbs House Mill is a charming refuge in one of Cornwall's most beautiful regions, close to Megavissey and the coast.  Beautifully restored, both house and gardens are perfect for relaxing, with tea and homemade cakes greeting your arrival setting the tone for your stay. There's a lovely sitting room for the use of guests and the garden is a highlight, leading down to the river and with plenty of seating areas to enjoy tea, wine, or - weather permitting - breakfast. 

There are just two guest bedrooms here, both very peaceful with countryside views. One room is fitted with a superking bed that can easily be converted into a twin, while the other room has a king sized bed. Both have TVs, wifi and en-suite facilities, with bathrobes and toiletries provided. There used to be tea and coffee making facilities in every room but the steam from this did not mix with the lime plaster befitting a 300-year-old house: now most guests enjoy afternoon tea and biscuits in the garden and Denise is more than happy to bring up tea in the morning as required. 

Guests at Tubbs Mill House have free use of the sitting room and gardens throughout their stay. Breakfasts - and dinners, if required - are served in the dining room, with a Rayburn providing steady heat in the cooler months. The drawing room has a wood-burning stove for winter stays, while in the summer the garden comes into its own. This is a delight, flowering with many species too delicate to grow elsewhere, as it slopes down to the River Luney. There are plenty of seating areas to let guests make the most of their beautiful and tranquil environment. 

"Tubbs Mill House is the gingerbread cottage from the fairy tale. Run by the delightful Denise and Vic, it is an old converted mill house set on the Roseland Peninsula in the depths of rural Cornwall. There are ducklings on the pond, chickens on the path and the cottage has its own well."

Your B&B Hosts

Your hosts here are Denise Hall and Vic Morley. Both are well travelled, but also long term Cornwall residents: they'll be able to help with practical advice for exploring the area. Denise is a skilled cook - it may well help she's half Italian - but her main skill is supervising Vic, who does all the work. All the bread is home cooked and cakes are made from scratch. Meanwhile Denise makes her own soaps, lotions and potions: there'll probably be some of her organic unguents adorning your room's en-suite. They are also keen furniture restorers, using chalk and wax to beautify and distress, and throughout the summer both of them can be found perfecting their beautiful garden. Just to encourage you to stroll right through the garden the River Luney, at the end, is said to carry gold and might be worth a pan.


Tubbs Mill House is set in the Roseland Peninsula Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty. The Southwest Coastal Path is one mile away, as is the Caerhays Castle with its magnificent National Magnolia Collection. There are beaches, walks and restaurants to be found in every direction.  Local attractions include The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trelissick Gardens and Lanhydrock House. It is very near to St Mawes with its castle and St Just in Roseland with its beautiful church, while the stunning village of Portloe is only four miles away. Mevagissey is a ten minute drive and has a huge range of restaurants and your hosts will be happy to advise on which to choose and take care of your reservation.
