Local Attractions

Tubbs Mill is very well placed to explore the whole of Cornwall easily. Local attractions are The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Caerhays Castle, Trelissick Gardens and Lanhydrock House.   We are very near to St Mawes with its castle, St Just in Roseland with its beautiful church and the stunning village of Portloe is only four miles away.   We have a selection of really good pubs in the area together with a huge choice of restaurants in Mevagissey to suit everyone’s taste and, of course, The Nare Hotel for that special occasion.  We are very happy to advise and book the pub of your choice.

St Mawes

St Mawes is the principal village on the Roseland Peninsula, situated at the mouth of the Percuil River. With a picturesque harbour and small fishing fleet, it is protected by the most perfectly preserved of Henry VIII’s coastal fortresses, St Mawes Castle.



An absolute gem - We stopped at Tubbs Mill House on our way home from a few days away. We were greeted at the front door by Denise and Vic who instantly made us feel incredibly welcome. The cottage is simply stunning and has been beautifully and tastefully restored.

I must say , I have never stayed at such a beautiful, relaxing and elegant location. As soon as you drive down the lane and discover the mill... It really does leave you saying wow!

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.
