My two friends and I (travellers from Australia) stayed at the Bissick Old Mill for 6 nights at the beginning of June and what an absolute delight it was, certainly rated as one of the best B&B we have stayed in and we are well versed travellers.
It was the perfect relief from our previous Guesthouse accommodation in Dublin which had been an absolute disaster and renewed our faith in recommendations via Trip Advisor.
Upon our arrival, we were met by owners, Patrick and Vivienne who provided us with refreshments and cake, such a warming welcome, very much appreciated especially after our 5 hour driving journey from Bournemouth.
I cannot speak more highly of Vivienne and Patrick, they ensured our stay was one to remember. Nothing was too much trouble for the whole family. Their kindness extended beyond the norm, whether it be washing our clothes or researching the internet for places to go, we really appreciated their efforts.
We stayed in the Mill Suite and what a delightful experience, certainly would recommend it. Our rooms were large enough to give us space yet feel cosy, tastefully decorated and even on a rainy day, you would just love to stay indoors. As one of my companions said "One could write a novel whilst staying here, just the right atmosphere".
Location was perfect for us all but especially myself, as I was researching my family history in the area. Given our central location of accommodatin, we were able to venture out each day in our hired car to places of interest such as the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Port Issac (Doc Martin country), Penzance, Mevigassey (a must to visit, what an experience) and of course the beautiful town of Truro and the stunning countryside of Cornwall, how lucky were we, all within easy reach. Each night we went to sleep with smiles on our faces and arose each morning with smiles on our faces, it is not often one experiences a holiday such as this, excellent accommodation and at very reasonable rates.
The local pub was just perfect, no worries of driving home intoxicated. On Sunday mornings you can hear the church bells ringing from nearby St Ladoca's church was just fantastic, very historical. I have to admit, I am a bit biased as I traced my family history to Ladoca Church and they were mentioned in the Honour Roll, but irrespective of this fact, it is really worth a visit if only to see the beautiful William Morris stained glass.
Breakfast once again was really special, the perfect example of local produce at its best.
I hope to return next year with my husband and will certainly be staying at the Bissick Old Mill. Highly recommended.
