New Mills

Holidays in Cornwall

New Mills have accommodation in a beautiful part of the world, perfect for your first or last stop in Cornwall. Travelling further into the county will bring you to North Cornwall, where you will find Rooke Cottages’ beautifully renovated farm buildings, converted to well-furnished self-catering holiday cottages. The owners have created rustic homes away from home.

Polzeath is the closest beach, excellent for surfing and for families to relax on, Rock Beach and Daymer Bay are close by as well, at the mouth of the beautiful Camel Estuary. This is a stunning region of North Cornwall, close to Wadebridge and Port Isaac, and a brilliant base to explore the county.

Rooke is located not far from Polzeath in Chapel Amble, the farm is surrounded by Duchy Farmland, an idyllic location. The holiday accommodation is at a five-star level, with cottages that can comfortably take two or more families, single-family cottages, and romantic little homes perfect for a couple celebrating an anniversary or honeymoon. With Padstow just a short passenger ferry trip away, this is a wonderful place to stay.

Padstow is obviously an excellent location to stay in as well, a fishing port with centuries of history. An excellent B&B here is Armsyde, just a short walk from the centre of the town and with beautiful rooms.

Accommodation and Attractions

Heading further inland you will pass Wadebridge, an old market town sitting on the River Camel. There is a huge amount of accommodation around this town and some of it unorthodox, such as Wild & Free Cornish Campers. They offer vintage VW camper van hire Wadebridge is the perfect base to Cornwall enjoy from, ideal to explore the county on your own terms. Their campervan, Pip, a 1974 VW Westfalia bay window van that sleeps four. A classy way to holiday in stunning scenery!

Carrying on, on your way towards Bodmin Moor, you will find the secluded Pencarrow, one of the most beautiful historic houses Cornwall has to offer. The gardens are stunning and boast spectacular bluebells in the spring.

On the other side of the moor is the unofficial capital of North Cornwall, Camelford, where you will find plenty of accommodation, places to stay, shop, eat out, events and walks galore. Camelford is a busy town with centuries of history.

The South Coast

Heading south from Pencarrow you will enter into Cornwall’s industrial past, the historic Charlestown is a great example. Travelling west from that beautiful port takes you past St Austell and on towards Mevagissey. Halfway between the two towns is Pentewan, which is an excellent location for cycle hire in Cornwall. There are many cycle routes heading out from this little port, which oozes history itself.

The St Austell region is full of inventive enterprises, taking advantage of the connections it once had all around the world. The range of varied businesses is surprising, one of the being Shaw Van Conversions, who provide refrigerated vans for the industry. They can either take an existing vehicle to be converted, or choose from their selection of completed chiller vans.
