Set in private, peaceful gardens our 200 year old traditional Cornish cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing stay.

Surrounded by the historical mining countryside of West Cornwall, Benson's is ideally situated to enjoy the walkways, cycle routes and the heritage of this beautiful part of the UK.

With en-suite to all rooms, tea/coffee making facilities, plus off road parking and secure storage for bicycles,  Sue and Mike, along with their enthusiastic greeters Ben and Cassie, look forward to welcoming you to their home.

Benson's is situated on the edge of the old tin mining villages of Carharrack and St Day close to the Gwennap section of the Cornish Mining World Heritage site. 

The Mineral Tramways trail network for cyclists and walkers is within very easy reach.  Hike and Bike at nearby Pink Moors can cater for all your cycling needs and will deliver to our door if required.

A 10 minute drive brings you to the surfing beaches of Porthtowan and Portreath.  Newquay's famous beaches are just 30 minutes away.

At the end of your busy day, a fine glass of ale or wine, with a serving of excellent food can be enjoyed at one or more of the local pubs.
