Bucklawren – an Ancient Tradition of Hospitality

Real Cornish Working Farm

Bucklawren is a working arable and beef farm of 400 acres. It lies on an ancient Celtic site, and the original manor is mentioned in the 11th-century Domesday Book. In medieval times there was a nunnery here, but it was destroyed in the 16th century by Henry VIII during the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

Robert and Jean Henly with their two daughters Jo and Kate took over Bucklawren Farm in 1987.

Award-winning accommodation

In 1991 they converted a former stable block into three self catering holiday cottages. This was followed by the conversion of a two storey barn into a spacious four bedroom holiday cottage (The Hayloft) in 1999 and the conversion of a further barn into a single storey two bedroom cottage suitable for disabled visitors (The Lodge) in 2000.

Finally in 2016 Millers House was completed giving luxurious accommodation over two floors sleeping up to six people in three en-suite bedrooms. The design and materials were carefully chosen to ensure sympathetic conversion and to faithfully retain the exterior and interior character of the lovely old buildings.
