About ben bennett

A family farm, once owned by the Caerhayes estate, and in the same family ownership for30 years . Ben and April have been running this unspoilt holiday property since then and have raised their family here.

It is close enough to the beach to walk there, but tucked away up a country lane so is quiet and very peaceful.

ben bennett purchased this apartment in 1980

Why ben bennett chose Veryan

We love this area, it's natural beauty, the sea, the walks , and not just in the summer but all the seasons .

It can be wild and wet, mild and balmy or deliciously frosty.......with flowers trees , ferns and all sorts of wild life ......shady groves, tumbling streams, majestic has it all........ Catch a bus or jump in the car

and in 20 minutes you can be in the city... at the theatre, or shopping in one of the markets or maybe just sitting in a cafe' and soaking up the atmosphere......

What makes this apartment unique

Local information from the owners...if you are walking and staying in the B&B we can provide an evening meal

Gorgeous location

  • 4 of 5

The barn conversion was in an idyllic location, so quiet and peaceful. The views from the balcony were just lovely. Improvements would be, a frying pan that wasn't warped and massive, some kitchen towel and more than one roll of toilet paper. Please can everyone shut the gate to the garden as is says on the sign!. If other cottages are hired, please can they also shut their gates? Clearer signage to recycling

Beautiful surroundings, welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable and cozy. The views and sunsets were beautiful from the cottage. April and Ben were so lovely and welcoming, helping us by recommending things to do inside when the weather was unsettled.
