Hot Tub

A real treat – relax in the Hot Tub at Ta Mill, we have recently installed a Vita Spa Chateau Hot Tub in our original waterwheel Pit.  Guests can relax and enjoy this wonderfully therapeutic experience during their stay at Ta Mill.  Let the warm swirling water massage your stresses and aches away.  Pamper and soothe every muscle in your body as you lie back and switch off.

The Hot Tub is situated in a private setting, unusually surrounded by the original stone walling of the waterwheel pit.  Climb down into the inviting Hot Tub which is sat on a steel grid above the fantastic vertical walls where a working waterwheel once belonged.

Be amazed at the beautiful example of local craftmenship from ages past which is lit up below you or look above at the changing scenes as clouds drift by or marvel at the sky at night.

No children under 13 years.

Ta Mill, half mile Nature Trail

Indulge your imagination as you absorb the natural beauty and tranquil setting whilst you wander along the picturesque nature walk, suitable for both wheelchairs and pushchairs. Follow the wending stream where all you are likely to hear are kestrels and skylarks, as they soar above. Sit and watch the wildlife ponds which are teeming with life as you relax and recharge in this haven of peace.

Start your journey in the orchard-replanted with a collection of traditional cornish apple trees.   Continue through a beautiful valley of dramatic stone outcrops. Depending on the season enjoy the bright yellow gorse with white blossom of the blackthorn or vivid purple foxgloves with dainty violets hiding in the undergrowth. After nearly half a mile be delighted at the discovery of another wildlife pond, playing host to a wealth of pondlife, including dragonflies, striking turquoise damselflies and swallows as they dip and dive across the shimmering water. Otters are a regular visitor to this pond, you will find their ‘spraint’ on nearby rocks. Along your journey, you will find original granite gateposts, traditional Cornish stone hedging and wonderfully contorted trees that provide a home for mosses and lichen that only grow in pure air.

Beyond the pond, there are remains of two ancient stone enclosures which are circular features, best viewed from the hillside. It is not known quite what these enclosures were for or when they were built but we welcome suggestions! If you wish to continue your journey, join the nearby footpath which leads to St. Clether Chapel and its ancient Holywell which is considered to be the most beautifully situated of all shrines in Cornwall.

A DEFRA assigned access, recognised for its archaeological interest & unique setting.
