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, Boscatle,  Polzeath, Eden and much more are all there waiting to be explored. See also Barney's CottageHetty'sBen's Barn and The Snug.

Local Area

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.

Mike and Sophy, the owners, are a lovely couple with excellent properties and grounds. No expense has been spared to make everything comfortable and well-equipped.Mrs D - 9th July 2015
We have just returned from an amazing 2 week stay at Dickins Cottage. It was a perfect base for our family holiday being located so close to many of the places we love in North Cornwall. The cottage is stunning, a home from home. It is immaculate. So clean it is as if no one has stayed there before you. The oven looked like it had never been cooked in. Very well equipped in every way. Everything has been thought about to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as it could possibly be. A completely secure garden made it perfect for our dog and excellent kennels located very close for doggy day care. The cottage is so peaceful in an idyllic rural location- waking up to the sound of birds each morning. The owners are lovely and extremely helpful. We would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return next year.Mrs R - 16th June 2015
We had a fantastic stay here with a couple of friends and our dogs. The cottage is beautiful and the surroundings so peaceful....the perfect ingredients for a relaxing holiday after a stressful time buying/selling houses. The owners are very helpful and there is so much to see and do in the area. Would thoroughly recommend a holiday here!Mrs L - 2nd May 2015
Our second visit to Dickins Cottage. Absolutely love it! It offers everything our family needs! Good location, quality-a-plenty and real comfort. We hope to be back again next year.Mrs C - 30th August 2014
