The Byre - Facilities

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, The Shippon and The Byre can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    An excellent cottage managed by 2 very helpful and friendly people .There is a very good pub providing good food at very fair prices around 3 miles from the cottage .Unfortunately for us the cottage was a little remote.

    The Byre is one of three cottages converted from farm buildings on Mennabroom farm which dates back Centuries. Along with the cottages the farm house has accommodation for bed & breakfast guests. The location is simply stunning, remote, peaceful and far from civilisation. And yet just a short drive off of the main A30 allowing easy access to just about anywhere in Cornwall. The owners, Deborah & Ian are very welcoming &, friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. A Cornish cream tea awaits you upon arrival and was most welcome. The cottage is very clean and the quality of furnishings & equipment is of a very high standard. There are exposed beams throughout. The weather was great. A very relaxing holiday. Highly recommended.

    This was an amazing little cottage. It's clean, got all the kitchen equipment you'll need. Dog friendly, amazing owners. Right in the middle of Bodmin Moor. 2 miles away there's a village with a shop and pub. Amazing value for money and we'd defintiley stay again.

  • Julia - Surrey 20th May 2019

    Our stay May, 2019

    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!
