Mennabroom is a little piece of heaven hidden on Bodmin Moor. This small country estate with the owner’s historic 14th-century Grade II listed farmhouse, and three lovely holiday cottages, are set in working farmland on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor in south east Cornwall. The Tallet, The Shippon and The Byre have been sympathetically converted from a range of traditional stone outbuildings dating back to the 17th-century, and offer contemporary comforts within rustic traditional surroundings. Peacefully positioned on a private drive behind the main farmhouse, each cottage is accessed by steps to the front doors, while The Byre can be easily accessed via the back door with one step for those with mobility concerns. All the cottages have their own sitting-out area with garden furniture. The cottages are both child and dog friendly, and guests are free to wander the 15 acres which includes beautiful river and ancient woodland walks. There is a large shared grass area for games and relaxation as well as a barbecue area.
The properties are set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and whatever time of the year you visit you will not be disappointed. The farm is surrounded by Bodmin Moor, with its unspoilt, windswept, ancient landscape. Steeped in history, the landscape is made up of craggy tors, small hamlets, ancient woodland and fast flowing streams. At Mennabroom guests may wander through 15 acres of land in the Rivew Dewey valley, comprising ancient woodland, ponds and the river itself. This natural conservation area provides delightful, peaceful walks and is home to a wealth of wildlife.
There is plenty to see and do. With the Eden Project and Lanhydrock House both being close by, and Padstow to the north and Fowey to the south, both with sandy beaches, only a short distance away. There is excellent walking from Mennabroom, with cycling in nearby Cardinham Woods and on the Camel Trail from Bodmin. There are two deep unfenced ponds close to the drive on the opposite side from the waterfall, that are fed by the stream crossing the drive, further on is the broadleaved ancient woodland through which the River Dewey flows. A feature throughout this woodland is the abundance of lichens and bryophytes, and in the spring it is full of bluebells and orchids. There is trout fishing available on a 900-acre lake, less than a mile away. Beach 20 miles. Shop and pub 3 miles, restaurant 2 miles.
The Tallet (ref UKC1658), The Shippon (ref UKC1659) and The Byre (ref UKC1660) can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    This cottage has everything you need for a relaxing time away. Location is perfect, remote and peaceful with stunning scenery yet only a 10 minute drive from the A30 meaning it is easy to get to pretty much anywhere in Cornwall in a reasonable time. A perfect balance between remote and central. The owners and the cottage made you feel at home straight away with home made scones waiting upon arrival and heating set to make you feel warm and cosy after a long drive. I loved it and would definitely consider again in the future and recommend to anyone!
