Always know you are on to a good thing when, apart from the initial hello, you don't have any contact with the owners at all!. ....we stayed in south wing which had everything we wanted and more. ...lovely decor, comfortable beds, fab showers, log burner,well equipped kitchen, and a well thought out information booklet which answered all questions we may have had! .....and that's just the inside. ...the outside and grounds are simply beautiful...it was a perfect base for us to explore padstow, port isaac, Newquay,eden project, charlestown. It is hidden away in a peaceful area which we loved and would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone.
My family and I stayed in Butterwell South Wing and had a lovely 2 weeks in August despite the wet weather. Very clean, spacious, well equipped and well situated for Cornwalls resorts.Sam and Rachel was very friendly, always there if needed.Will recommend to anybody.Hope to visit again. Thankyou.
We have had the most wonderful time in Cornwall, staying at Butterwell Farm. The accommodation was superb, in an amazing location and situated conveniently to many attractions and places of interest.
The Camel river and Camel trail run at the end of the property and are excellent for walking or biking. Another fabulous place to visit is the Camel Vally Vineyard, which is easily reached just off the Camel Trail. You can either tour the vineyard or just enjoy a glass or two on the terrace, overlooking some stunning scenery back to Butterwell Farm.
The accommodation itself was excellent. Plenty of room and furnished to a very high standard. It was a real home from home with everything you could want or need. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
Sam and Rachel were on hand to help, if needed and Sam went the extra mile, helping us to fit a car battery after ours died. Nothing was too much trouble and it was great that they were just next door should we need anything.
You must try the fresh eggs from the hens. They were delicious!
This is without a doubt the best place we have stayed in Cornwall and we would not hesitate to stay again in the future.
Thank you Sam, Rachel and Jack.
This is a wonderful spacious place to stay for a quiet countryside retreat! It has nearby access to the Camel Trail for cycling or walking.For nature lovers there are mown paths near the river and in the woodland where we spotted bats, a hedgehog and a heron. Didn't see, but we did hear, an owl and baby otters. Butterwell's central location makes it 30-40 minutes drive to either coast for visiting the many attractions in the nearby area. We visited the Witch Museum at Boscastle, Eden Project, St Michaels Mount & Penzance, Kayaking at Cornish Coastal Adventures at Port Quinn, Tintagel Castle & Trebarwith Strand beach and cycled the whole Camel Trail from Bodmin to Padstow.
We stayed in the South Wing back in April which we thoroughly enjoyed for the week. The location was excellent as it’s so close to Bodmin which has everything you may require from a town (7 minutes from cottage to be precise as I timed it).
The wing itself has absolutely everything you could think of to make it a home away from home, it was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and lots of information available to help you plan your visit. The massive Log burner and log shed was an added bonus.
The owners made us feel very welcome and the use of the driveway to unpack the car was very useful.
The cottage itself couldn’t be in a better location as it’s on the actual river Camel which is through the gate at the bottom of the garden and just over the river bridge is the famous Camel Trail for those walkers/cyclists which is great. Forgot to mention the Camel Vineyards are around a 10 minute walk from the cottage also for the wine lovers.
Overall we had an amazing stay and the location is ideal to be anywhere in Cornwall really with around 50 mins max. The famous Padstow and Rock are very close and I must say they were our favourite place we visited. You can also see Doc Martins house in the nearby Port Isaac.
We had an amazing Stay from start to finish and are looking at availability for next year for another possible visit.
