One of five beautifully converted barns which, along with The Farmhouse, now form the peaceful farm hamlet of Trenarlett, Ben's Barn is a very spacious luxury cottage for two; romantic, cosy and comfortable but also eco-friendly, top quality and with great attention to detail. Tucked away down a quiet lane on the side of the Camel Valley, enjoy the wonderful surroundings in this truly relaxing hideaway. Sit in your own sunny enclosed private garden with the morning papers and later maybe a glass of wine whilst the barbecue gets going! Opportunities for walking and cycling are endless, not least with the Camel Trail at the bottom of the lane. Bodmin Moor, numerous beaches, the Coast path and unlimited places of interest for days out are all close by. Though totally detached and independent from each other, any of the cottages can be booked together for larger parties and the Farmhouse operates as a Bed and Breakfast, handy for extending your stay maybe, or for any friends/family who may wish to join you for a few days. The surrounding three villages each have a well stocked shop, post office and thriving pub, between them serving a wide variety of food and ales and a warm welcome, even in winter with their real fires! Away from it all yet with loads to see and do all around you, Ben's Barn is the perfect base and is well equipped with everything you need for a truly relaxing holiday.

Bens Barn remains the best property we have stayed in by a long way.
This property is kept to a high standard. It is centrally located for touring the county and we would certainly use it again.
Sophy was lovely. Very helpful without being intrusive. Property was beautiful. Location tranquil.
The property and its owner were excellent. It is very well located: quite deep in the countryside; reasonably close to the nearest town/city and central to the local attractions.
Very spacious and comfortable and everything you need is available.
Excellent property, will definitely return to the same farm!
Ben's Barn is a peaceful haven with every amenity you could want from any self accommodation location. Sophy and Mike are wonderful hosts and leave you to enjoy your break but are always there on hand should any problem arise. If you are looking for a countryside retreat that is ideally located to allow you to make the most of the Cornish coast and countryside this is the place for you.
The property was absolutely fantastic and Sophy was extremely helpful and friendly. I will definitely be going back, I can't fault the holiday in any way. Thank you
This was our third time at Ben's Barn and still find it the best holiday property we have ever experienced.
A wonderful place to stay, the owners Sophie and Mike were extremely kind and helpful, we have already recommended this property to some friends!
We have stayed here before and in the 4 year interim the very high standard of this property had not declined one jot. Nothing was amiss and the standard is excellent - as a seasoned cottage hire couple, Ben's Barn, in our experience, is way above the 'norm'. We would recommend to anyone with a high level of confidence.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ben's Barn. Very homely with everything provided and plenty of space for two. The bathroom was huge with a luxurious bath, and the big bed very comfortable. The dog loved the garden and running in the secure paddock. It is well positioned for exploring north Cornwall and the owners were very helpful and friendly. We will be returning!
The property was perfect - very spacious, comfortable and homely.
Tranquil setting, everything you could need is provided. First class service, a property that we have returned to many times. We feel like it is our second home.
Beautiful property can not fault.
Ben's barn is in the most glorious peaceful location. The property is outstanding and it is so good to find a place with such high standards which also allows dogs. We will definitely be returning! Outstanding holiday accommodation, would recommend most highly.
If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it. With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise. The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations. With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days. More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark. When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor? The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.
