Trenarlett Farm is in a wonderfully tranquil spot in the heart of rural Cornwall. Dickins Cottage was recently converted from a cattle barn into luxury accommodation, top quality with 'eco' credentials to boot. Beautifully restored and appointed it is set on the sunny side of the valley above the River Camel (access for fishing may be available by arrangement). Extremely spacious and well equipped, with large comfortable beds and sofas, underfloor heating and bedroom suites at each end, Dickins' has everything you need for a relaxing break, be it with family or friends. Independent from the farm and each other, a combination of cottages could be booked together for larger parties and the Farmhouse offers Bed and Breakfast - handy for extended stays, or for anyone wishing to join you just for a few days. The surrounding villages offer a range of friendly pubs serving food and wildlife lovers, birdwatchers, keen walkers and cyclists will be in their element with the wilds of Bodmin Moor and the famous Camel Trail practically on the doorstep. Those feeling really energetic can reach Padstow along the Trail, so bringing bikes is definitely worth it (but they can be hired locally). Just 10 minutes' drive from the A30 and 5 from the Atlantic Highway (A39) you are well placed to enjoy the whole county. The coast path, numerous beaches, Padstow, Port Isaac, Tintagel, Boscastle, Polzeath, Eden and much more are all there waiting to be explored. See also Barney's Cottage, Hetty's, Ben's Barn and The Snug. Check out additional services available via the owners.

This was our second stay at Dickins’ Cottage and we had yet another fantastic week. The cottage is very comfortably furnished and has everything you need and enjoyed all the time at the cottage. We loved the location being in a very quiet area but with so much just a 20 to 30 mins drive away. Looking forward to coming back for New Year in Barney’s Cottage.
One word amazing! Thank you so much to the owner and yourselves! This holiday was just perfect for us. We try and visit Cornwall once or twice a year and we will definitely be using you again!
Having stayed at Barney’s cottage at Trenarlett farm before, we booked Dicken’s cottage for a bigger party of people and, used to the high standard we had come to expect, we were not disappointed, our experience was equally as good. Sophy and Mike are excellent hosts and we will book again.
We have stayed at Dickens cottage 5 times and would highly recommend it. It is so beautifully maintained and immaculate with a secure garden for dogs/ children. The location is superb- very rural with no noise or light pollution. It is very easy to explore Cornwall from this base being close to the coast and central road links. We could not think of a more perfect place to stay with our young son and mad poodle!
What a lovely cottage, our favourite so far, very spacious and comfortable, lovely to have our own private garden too. We live quite nearby, but will definitely return.
The cottage was superb as was the region we stayed in.
Excellent property, the best we ever had.
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.
