Locals relate that 2 Mill Lane was once a butler’s pantry! In the late 1600’s Frogmore House (still accessed through the gateway at the top of Frog Lane) was a substantial farmhouse and both it and what is now Frogmore Corner (our other property next door), plus little Froglets were all one residence. You can still see at the bottom of the stairs where the connecting door once was and imagine how the butler busied himself preparing and storing food for his employers. He probably slept here and so would have woken to the same wonderful view. The original chimney till stands and the fireplace which no doubt contained a wood fired stove, has been sympathetically restored to house a modern electric cooker. Views several hundred years ago must have been very similar as the river Fal still winds its way through the fields. It has long since silted up however so that big boats can no longer dock, as they used to, at the port of Tregony. Today the lush fields are full of yellow flag iris in spring and birds dip and dive along the river bank while sea gulls circle above. The footpath along Frog Lane drops down to Tregony Bridge, then borders the river bank, winding back up Mill Lane itself, a perfect morning trot for dog walkers. Mill Lane is flooded with sunlight from late morning to the evening and there are little benches tucked under the windows of many of the houses bordering the lane. Children play as safely as they did 100 years ago while of an evening the elder residents enjoy the lingering warmth with glass or two as the sun sets. The owners bought Froglets in the summer of 2017 and have restored and repaired the cottage with style and attention to detail. Froglets is furnished simply and comfortably; equipped with everything you will need for your holiday. The kitchen alcove houses a washing machine and storage is deceptively spacious with magic corner cupboard beneath the original stairs. Microwave, toaster, fridge-freezer and electric cooker with glass hob are all brand new as is the attractive wood flooring. The original and very thick walls have all been restored with lime plaster in keeping with the local style. Upstairs the sunny bedroom with en-suite has a generous, comfortable 4’6” bed. There is TV, WiFi and dogs are very welcome. Be sure to duck your head as you climb the narrow stairs! Parking is opposite the front door on the other side of the lane to the houses.
