Mill house in Cornwall just a mile from the beach

Gooseham Mill House is a wonderful old property dating back as far as the 17th century with literary connections: in the mid 20th century the house was owned by Lady Patricia Russell, wife of Sir Bertrand Russell and it is understood that many famous writers and artists from the Bloomsbury Set visited the property at this time.

The property itself has been extended and renovated over the past decade and retains many original features whilst incorporating all the necessary modern conveniences.
