We had a very pleasant stay in the Old Mill Cottage! Everything was very fine. We were so happy and slept so well in this lovely house, that we were sad to leave.Mrs Birgit Forstmaier - 14th September 2019
Very much enjoyed our stay. Ms T Russo - 29th August 2019
The property was lovely. Everything had been thought of with great attention to detail. A lovely welcome with cake and tea provided and a pretty bunch of flowers. A nice homely touch. We would highly recommend this cottage as it was a lovely and comfortable place to stay with a great little secluded patio. The host was very friendly and informative. Mrs Sophie Maziere - 3rd August 2019
The property was charming and perfect for a relaxing week away. The owner couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. Gweek and the surrounding area are perfect for touring and we were very lucky to have fine weather so we were out and about on the motorbike a lot! The service we received from the Above Beach Team was also fast, friendly and efficient. We will be back - we had a fabulous stay.Mrs Maggie Gregor - 13th June 2019

We enjoyed our stay in Old Mill Cottage so much that we are looking forward to returning sometime in the future to explore more of this lovely part of Cornwall. The cottage is very comfortable and peaceful and has everything we needed. Patrick the owner of the cottage was very helpful with information on the surrounding area. A great place to stay for exploring this part of Cornwall.Lyn & John, Stafford
The cottage was perfect - well located to discover Cornwall. Well-equipped in a very cute village. We really enjoyed staying there. A good address to keep!Valerie Kromm, France
We had a wonderful time at Old Mill Cottage. The little garden was wonderful, lots of beautiful hydragea and really private. Maddie was really helpful when we had problems with the WiFi and she did literally everything that so that we could get access to the internet. We can only recommend this lovely cottage: the location, a great bed and really fluffy towels. Gweek is a great place to start excursions to lots of interesting places in Cornwall - the Lizard, St. Ives, St. Michael's Mount and the coast in general. Thank you very much!Eva Amann, Germany
We have had a lovely week in a very beautiful part of the world. A great place to stay - loved the peace. Thank you.Nicky and Dayne, Bath
