Cornwall is a unique place, it’s steeped in myth and legend – from beasts and sunken lands to “piskies”, which makes it feel very different, almost magical. Life is slower, people are unassuming, have time to talk, tell a story and are welcoming. We hope you will find the same when you visit us, in fact many guests say they wished they’d booked to stay longer.
With a background in the hospitality business and years of looking after the assets of one of Cornwall’s largest land owners your hosts, Vicky and Darran, are well placed to ensure you have a relaxing break and are able to explore all of Cornwall’s treasures. If you’d like a little extra comfort or company their very friendly labrador and cat are always unobtrusively on hand!
Benallack has a special atmosphere; perhaps it’s the medieval chapel which was here many moons ago, the roman field patterns at the bottom of the garden, the nearby ancient woodland or the view from ‘The Bench’ (the perfect stroll from the house). Either way we think it’s a special place. There are two cottages that we ourselves would love to stay in. Both are individually furnished and include super comfortable beds with crisp white linen, a woodburning stove, powerful showers, well equipped kitchens and an artistic and cosy ambience. They are perfectly located for exploring Cornwall.
