An impressive, south facing, converted Grade II Listed former Water Mill with an established wellness and accommodation business.


This handsome 18th century stone mill building is nestled into the folds of the Eglarooze Hills and has three vehicle entrance points from the passing single-track lane. The top drive takes you into the wellness studio and gym, the second into the front door of the main mill and the third and lowest entrance into the large, gravelled parking courtyard on Cobland Mill’s south side. Adjacent to the lowest entrance is Little Mill, a separate, one -bedroom guest cottage with kitchen and sitting room, which enjoys views over the adjacent fields and babbling stream. Many of the buildings’ original external and internal features remain intact and the home has been continually renovated to create a stunning, countryside retreat.

First Floor - This inviting home is entered at first floor level, from the middle drive. A spacious arrival hall serves a number of oak floored reception rooms and the kitchen. Your gaze is immediately drawn through the grand double doors in front of you into the double height drawing room, with its feature beams, grand fireplace and double aspect French windows.

To the right of the entrance hall is a snug, with a beautiful original fireplace and directly adjacent to the hall is the rear, limestone staircase descending to the lower floor to the storage and laundry areas. Turning left from the hall is the bespoke, Shaker style kitchen, featuring iroko cabinetry and stainless steel work surfaces with a stepped breakfast bar island. There are plenty of below counter and wall mounted cabinets with a range of fitted appliances including a stainless-steel oven, LPG gas hobs, Aga and hood extractors, a double full height fridge/freezer unit, an integrated dishwasher and double stainless-steel sinks. A glazed side door provides access to a path around the side of the building and to the parking area, convenient for food delivery. Flowing through double doors from both the kitchen and drawing room is the dining room, lined with full height book shelves and solid wood floors. Another door opens from the dining room onto the main staircase and beyond leading to the principal bedroom suite with a grand, ensuite bathroom which has a full-length bath, shower cubicle and twin countertop basins. There are two dressing rooms off this suite, one providing roof access. A beautiful oak staircase descends to the lower ground-floor level.

Lower Ground Floor - Downstairs there are four generously sized bedrooms and two bathrooms served by a long, turning corridor that connects the two staircases and the rear door onto the parking court. A large office on this floor includes bespoke, fitted cabinetry and at the back of this room is a recently installed infrared sauna. The corridor provides also access to a number of storage cupboards, a cloakroom with w.c., a separate boot room with lowered Belfast sink for dog washing, a large pantry and utility room with floor access to the former mill wheel housing and leat; used as a wine cellar. The house has been renovated to an excellent design and decorative standard throughout; the heritage features and large rooms creating an impressive country house home, ready for future generations.

Exterior, gardens and garage - The lowest vehicle entrance leads to a gravelled parking court with parking space for approximately eight cars. A gated wall divides the parking area from a pretty lawn that borders the mill stream. At the top of the grounds, a gated drive opens up to the former double garage which has been beautifully converted into a contemporary wellness studio including a reception area, timber floored studio, kitchenette and bathroom.
Below this accommodation is a storage area, gym and attached to the building is a terraced conservatory with guest seating providing spectacular views over the gardens and valley. Below the Studio, the sheltered, south facing garden terraces include timber edged planters with subtropical and aromatic plants framing a number of seating spaces for relaxation. Magnolia trees create a magnificent display in the spring.


Cobland Mill was originally part of the Port Eliot Estate and is now a stunning, south facing, family home, set into the folds of the tranquil valley of a tributary of the River Tiddy.
The Grade II listed property lies within walking distance of the magnificent Eglarooze cliffs, sandy beaches and the southwest coastal path, halfway between Portwrinkle village in the east and Downderry village in the west. In addition to its valuable countryside setting, the area offers a number of destinations and attractions within a few miles. There are a number of restaurants and cafés close by and the city of Plymouth is reached by a short ferry trip from Rame Head to the east of the property where the newly restored Royal William Yard offers a selection of wine bars, cafes and heritage walks. The Rame peninsula has easy access to the A38 and M5 and the mainline rail station at St Germans is within 3 miles.
There are a good range of schools locally with Downderry and St Germans primary schools close by and the catchment area for Plymouth’s grammar school and colleges cover the property.
