Coombe Mill sits in its own hamlet between the villages of St Breward and St Tudy. Tucked away in the country there is plenty to do on the doorstep!
The Old Inn at St Breward is a truly old world Cornish pub which is welcoming to families and pets. They are the highest pub in Cornwall and you can see the sea from there! Their Moorland Grills are their speciality.
The Cornish Arms at St Tudy has recently been renovated and has a new menu full of variety. Great choice if you’re looking for an adult only night out.
Cedar Croft Nurseries is a family run plant nursery just 2 miles from Coombe Mill, with show gardens, reasonably priced plants and a friendly cafe for breakfasts, lunches and cream teas. Opening times and more information can be found on their website, here.
Cycle hire is available from the village and the famous Camel trail starts just 1 mile from Coombe Mill at Wenfordbridge where there is bike hire and a friendly cafe. From here the beautiful old railway track takes you 17 miles through woodland and estuary to Padstow via Bodmin and Wadebridge. Join the trial anywhere along the way. Lanhydrock House and Gardens is a National Trust property which offers bicycle hire with family friendly off road cycle trails and free car parking. Cardinham Woods also offers great cycle paths, along with a small family run cafe, however they do charge for car parking. At Coombe Mill we have a covered cycle store if you bring your bikes down with you, or hire them for several days during your stay.
Just up the road from us Hengar Manor have a lovely big indoor pool complex open to the public. There is a handy baby pool, fun slide in the main pool and Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room too; ideal for a wet afternoon.
Try riding out over Bodmin Moor on a hack with our local stables at Hellaganna. Children need to be age 4 and over to ride.
St Breward is located right on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Travel over the cattle grids and enter a beautiful, spacious if slightly wild environment. With streams following through and plenty of run around space, ponies and sheep grazing loose it is a popular retreat for families with a picnic; great freedom for children and dogs. Just a little further towards Camelford and the delights of Rough Tor and Brown Willy with breath taking views and rocky outcrops which the children love to climb and hide inside: http://bit.ly/CountryKids
St Breward Stores is a friendly family run shop open 7 days a week and have a wide range of essential items and Cornish produce. They also offer a ‘home delivery’ service, dropping grocery’s off in your property at Coombe Mill ready for your arrival, which you can order here.
There is also a Post Office in St Breward which sells papers and greetings cards alongside their Post Office services.
