It's no surprise Cornwall is such a crowd-pleaser when it boasts places like Benallack Barn. Nestled between the north and south coasts and tucked away down a long private lane, it offers all the right ingredients to fully immerse you into Cornish life. Dating back to 1600, Benallack Barn is formed of the owners' house plus two luxury self-catering apartments, the Bullpen and the Dairy, which each sleep two, and faces a pretty central courtyard. Take advantage of the quiet country setting. Budding pianists can play on the elegant Steinway in the house by the open garden doors, while animal lovers will adore the pet dogs, cats and chickens that wander freely around. What's more organic enthusiasts will enjoy the fresh eggs from Benallack's own flock and seasonal vegetables from the garden. Country living doesn't get better than this.
