Situation and Amenities

Ardevora Mill is situated on The Roseland Peninsula in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is about 1.5 miles from Philleigh, renowned for its historic church and 16th century Roseland Inn. It is one of the prettiest country villages of the Roseland, which is adjacent to the estuary of the River Fal and stretches to Gerrans Bay in the East. The nearby villages of Gerrans and Portscatho provide day-to-day shopping facilities and primary schooling and excellent secondary education is available in Tregony a few miles away. Just 3.4 miles away is the King Harry Ferry, which links to Truro, Falmouth and the rest of mid to West Cornwall. For the sailing enthusiast, St Just in Roseland has a boatyard and sailing clubs are found at Falmouth, Mylor Harbour and St Mawes. The mile long white sands of Pendower Beach are only 2.6 miles away. St Just in Roseland itself is renown for its historic creek side church, where subtropical plants grow beside native trees and flora.

Summary and Brief History

Ardevora Mill is located at the end of a three-quarter mile long, unmade private lane. This unique home has just three neighbouring properties, all enjoying privacy from each other without the feeling of complete isolation. Only by viewing internally can one fully capture the atmosphere and character and appreciate the overall quietness of Ardevora, which is still within such easy commuting distance of Truro, Falmouth and St Austell. The Mill was converted around 2007 and over the years it has been painstakingly equipped to a very high standard and exceptional specification. Oozing character yet incorporating the modern with the traditional - high vaulted ceilings, oak ledge and brace doors, granite and red brick quoins, under-floor heating, stylish bathrooms and kitchens, and double-glazing. Wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and the creek can be enjoyed from many rooms. Notwithstanding the magical location and the depth of character and stylish accommodation on offer, a major attribute is a private right of way along the border of a neighbours’ field, which gives access on to a small beach and the shores of the creek. Our clients and their guests have spent many enjoyable times kayaking, boating, bird and wildlife watching or simply relaxing and enjoying the views as well as soaking up the peace and tranquillity the location offers which has to be experienced first hand to fully appreciate.

Creek Access

The owners and their successors in title have a right and liberty to pass on foot down the side of the neighbour's field gaining access to a small beach on Ardevora Creek.
