Kelly Green Mill is part of the Lamellen Estate which has been in the family for generations. It was a barn and mill for cattle feeds and part of Kelly Green farm. Recently, new buildings have replaced the old and the farm has been moved away from the river and 300 yards downstream of the Mill for environmental reasons. The Mill has views up the Allen valley.

Kelly Green Mill is situated about a mile from St Tudy a quaint Cornish village, the church around which the village was built was first constructed in the 6th century and then rebuilt in the 11th, 15th and latterly 19th centuries, the village has been built around the original Celtic circular raised graveyard - known locally as "God's Acre!" St Tudy is believed to be the birthplace of Captain Bligh of the "Mutiny on the Bounty" fame! The St Tudy Inn (formerly the Cornish Arms) will welcome you in for a refreshing drink, a hearty meal or both!
Wadebridge was originally a market town. It has an amazing 15th century bridge with 17 arches over the River Camel, which is definitely worth a visit. It is said the bridge was built on wool as this was how the wealthy landowners in the area made their money. From the day the bridge was built the town became known as Wadebridge. The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish Farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring.
Both Wadebridge and nearby Camelford are centrally located in order to explore the nearby hills and moors. Wadebridge is the perfect base, being the half way point, from which to discover the Camel Trail, a walk and cycle track following the old railway route from Bodmin to Padstow. There is wonderful scenery and plenty of wildlife, including fantastic sightings of wading birds to see on this serene trail and bikes can be hired from Bodmin, Wadebridge or Padstow. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Steins empire in Padstow.
The National Trust have three properties nearby, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and the dramatic cliffs and beach at Bedruthan Steps. Or if you fancy something different try a tour around the Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornish Wine has been growing in stature around the world and their sparkling wines are truly stunning, having picked up lots of international awards, go for a tasting you will not be disappointed!
Bodmin Moor is a couple of miles away to the East and is dominated by large granite tors which tower over sweeping expanses of moorland. Bodmin Moor has engendered fear and awe throughout history and hence provided inspiration for writers, poets and sculptors. Standing stones, burial chambers, clapper bridges cottages and farms across the moor give a hint of the 4000 years of human development ever since Bronze Age farmers first arrived.
Port Isaac is about 4 miles to the North West and this has recently been the base of filming for "Doc Martin" with Martin Clunes, there are a good selection of cafes shops and pubs. Further up the coast there are all of the golden beaches and coves between Polzeath and Tintagel with some of the best surf in Europe.
Bodmin lies a few miles to South West and has a large selection of supermarkets, shops and restaurants.
Guest from Wimborne stayed for 4 nights.
A really lovely cottage. Well presented, very comfortable and exceptionally well equipped. Ideal for a family holiday, near wonderful beaches and lovely areas for walking. We had a thoroughly enjoyable few days.
Guest from Basingstoke stayed for 4 nights.
We booked the cottage at relatively short notice as accommodation for a business trip. The entire process was simple and straightforward. The house was excellent with easy access and lots of parking (which was an important factor for us). However, the thing that made the house and the trip exceptional, was the outstanding customer service and understanding shown by Nicola and the owners of the cottage when we needed to amend our initial plans. Based on our experience, I cannot recommend Cornwalls Cottages and the positive relationship they have with the owner highly enough.
Guest from Croydon stayed for 14 nights.
We have stayed here several times between 2013 and now and have always been very pleased. There is one very large kitchen/living room nicely separated into areas; a room with a half size snooker/pool table; and a surprisingly useful snug/games room beyond it. The bedroom are excellent and the beds comfortable. The garden is large, with a good lawn and a sloping area of trees. The outlook from the lawn is over fields with sheep and cattle and the river (fenced off) babbles away to one side. There are gates so you can shut the world out and keep children and dogs in (unless they are determined - the gates do not lock). There are TVs and DVD players galore (the internet is not fast enough for reliable streaming at the moment). The A39 is not far away but it is beyond the river and up a hill through a wood; you do not hear it in the house - you hear it as a road some distance away in the garden and we did not find it intrusivel. St Tudy has a community shop and a really good pub and restaurant. The location is good if you want either the moors, or Wadebridge, or the Camel Trail, or the coast - google maps will tell you the times but they are not long journeys.

Guest from Buckingham stayed for 7 nights.
Kelly Green Mill was booked for it's location and size for a family get together for our son's wedding and a holiday week in Cornwall. The accommodation suited our party size perfectly and the facilities were fantastic with the grandchildren loving the animals in the field at the back. The equipment in the kitchen and utility room provided everything we needed for the week. The layout of the property was excellent and provided privacy for all.
I am sorry I have replied sooner to your review of the Mill. We are so pleased that the Mill worked so well for you over your family wedding and you all had an enjoyable time. We hope you will visit us again.
