The Dairy sleeps two in stylish comfort, with slate and wood floors, pale walls, pictures, rugs and lamps. Laid out on two levels, it has a kitchen, living and dining area, a hall and a cloakroom on the ground floor, with a galleried landing and a large, light bedroom and white-tiled shower room upstairs.
The Bullpen sleeps two in a stunning single storey barn conversion: pale walls and wood floors, rugs and pictures, lamps, cushions and throws.
A large sitting room and bedroom with a luxurious separate shower room adjoining the bedroom area and a charming kitchen, with direct access to the garden overlooking rolling Cornish countryside where you can sit in the morning sun with a cup of tea and take in the views.
What a lovely place to stay, so well thought out in everything provided for our comfort. The cinnamon buns were lovely, such a lovely comfy bed, I was reluctant to get out of it!! The log burner was well used. We were really impressed in the kitchen even providing a full weeks worth of dishwasher tablets. I’m sure we will be back to enjoy The Dairy again, fabulous, thank you both.

Regrettably we have come to the end of our 6 day stay in this idyllic eco-friendly cottage. As we entered The Dairy on our arrival, we were welcomed by gentle strains of classical music. And thank you Vicky for the delicious muffins. Your attention to detail is apparent throughout the cottage and we were most comfortable. The fresh flower arrangements throughout the cottage also contributed to the overall ambience. We seriously contemplated extending our stay once we have moved in. Benallack Barn as a property is fantastic steeped in Cornish history. We were so taken by the formal parkland garden, vegetable garden and summerhouse at the lake, and enjoyed their peace and tranquillity – a haven to return to after a day out. We look forward to a return visit in the not to distant future.

From the minute you walk in you feel at home. It is a beautiful cottage, equipped with everything you could possibly need and more and furnished to a high standard with beautiful soft furnishings. The addition of the log burner is especially nice with a plentiful supply of logs. Vicky and her family are very welcoming, even during these difficult times and everything is planned meticulously, adhering to COVID guidelines.
