I stayed in the buzzard barn at Butterwell farm with 4 mates (we are all over 50). The grounds are stunning with the camel river running through the property only 50 yards from the barn and the view across to the Camel Valley winery (worth a tour) was so tranquil. Whilst the fishing is exceptional, we were interested in Mountain biking. This was fantastic- we were lead on 3 full day routes encompassing Padstow, Bodmin moor and the Cardinham leisure park, which has purpose built MTB and walking trails. We were on trails pretty much the whole time including the camel trail which stretches for 10+ miles in both directions. This allowed us to see just how many natural attractions thee are, not to mention the e cel lent restaurants and pubs that we visited. Sam and Rachel looked after us brilliantly, supplying a comprehensive breakfast every morning and nothing seems to be. Too much trouble for them.
Stayed here in 2006. Tyson, the owner gave us a tour of the land and around the house. Nothing was too much trouble. A very comfortable stay and the house overlooks the Camel Valley Vineyard. Returned a few years later and stayed in the adjacent property Buzzard Barn, equally comfortable.
