About us

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. We hope our guests agree!

Benallack is a beautiful stone farm complex set around a mediterranean style stone courtyard, dating partly from 1600, near the historic village of Grampound, perfectly located between the north and south coasts. With 4 acres of landscaped gardens surrounded by fields and woods, the cottages are the perfect retreat for people looking for peace and quiet, yet easy access to all corners of the county.

The Dairy is the most spacious, on two floors, with bedroom and bathroom upstairs and its own enclosed patio.

The Bullpen is a studio bed-sitting room with separate bathroom and eat-in kitchen, all on the ground floor.
