Hidden in the beautiful Seaton river valley, Jopes Mill is an 18th century watermill, with its waterwheel and internal machinery still intact. Its conversion to provide luxury 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom accommodation was completed in the Spring of 2020, preserving its original features and making it a truly unique place to stay.

On the ground floor the beautifully lit mill machinery provides a spectacular backdrop for the dining room, with access to a private terrace overlooking the garden and river. The neighbouring kitchen is newly fitted with dishwasher, washer/drier, fridge/freezer, etc. On the first floor the lounge has two pairs of original millstones and an oak beamed ceiling, with a wood burning stove and a plentiful supply of wood.

The first-floor bedroom is double height and can be arranged with a king size double bed or two small singles – it has a skylight which floods the room with light. The second-floor bedroom has a king size double bed and the original roof beams, with views down to the river and up into the woods. There is a sofa bed in the lounge for additional flexibility. There is a bathroom with a shower on the first floor and a further bathroom with a bath on the second floor.

Visitors to Jopes Mill and Lodge have unlimited private access to 5 acres of riverside gardens and woodland, including 400 meters of the beautiful River Seaton. Whether you want to take a stroll around the many paths and lawns, build dens in the woods, have camp-fires in the fire pits, or just sit and watch the river go by, this is the perfect setting. At the end of the garden is a 50 metre long waterlily lake which is in bloom through until September.

Jopes mill is only 3.5 miles from the beach at Seaton - it's a beautiful walk along the river to the sea. Looe is 10 mins away by car and Polperro 20 mins. Looking inland Bodmin Moor is only 15 mins away. There is a huge range of things to do in the area, from spectacular coastal walks to National Trust houses and gardens. For all its beauty, SE Cornwall is less well known, and less busy, than many other parts of Cornwall.

The mill has superfast broadband wifi and a smart TV, We have carefully selected and tested hotel quality beds with pocket sprung mattresses, satin stripe luxury bedding and lovely soft towels.

For larger groups the nearby Jopes Lodge can be booked at the same time - SimplyOwners reference P217477

The property was absolutely stunning. We cannot fault our stay at Jopes Mill. Nick was very welcoming and left us to it but would have been on hand if we needed any info. We were greated by Nick who gave us a tour around the property and also gave us an info booklet with all the local places that would be helpful during our stay. As well as suggestions of places to dine and visit. We even had a complimentary cream tea waiting for us on arrival. We were blown away by the garden/grounds of Jopes Mill. The river, the patio/bbq area, the fire pit, the water Lilly pond were all so well kept and beautiful! We wish we had more time to spend at Jopes Mill. We hope to visit hear again soon. And i would recommend Jopes Mill to anyone wanting to visit Cornwall.

Jopes Mill

By Michael, Caroline and Linda on 31-Oct-2021

We stayed in the Mill for two weeks in September 2021. We found Nick & Sally perfect hosts, nothing was to much trouble and the accommodation was perfect. The kitchen had every utensil we needed and more, the only thing missing was the instructions for the cooker and microwave which Nick said he would remedy. The beds were very comfortable & the bathrooms were clean and well equipped, in fact the whole place was clean and well equipped, you cant't say more. It is ideally situated to tour the south of Cornwall which we did, and after a hard day, we returned to relax with a G&T in the grounds of this idyllic spot

Jopes Mill

By James on 15-Aug-2021

We recently stayed at Jopes Mill renting both the Mill and Lodge together. We are a family with two children aged 9 & 11 and stayed along with the grandparents in late July 2021. Jopes Mill is in a lovely rural setting and renting both houses worked perfectly for our group as the two spaces were very complimentary. The Mill especially felt very spacious and a unique interior. The lodge was lovely and bright looking out onto the lawn and stream. We made use of the Lodge’s outside veranda for evening dining and the Mill's dining room for breakfast and the odd cooler day. Both the Lodge and Mill were newly and nicely furnished throughout with everything we needed and spotlessly clean. Our children loved exploring the woods, lily lake and playing in the stream. Recommended nearby activities were the zipwire at Adrenaline Quarry (for the kids), Golitha falls (a lovely walk) and the Talland Bay to Polperro walk with a stop for lunch in the garden terrace of The Three Pilchards pub.
