We stayed at the Buttervilla B&B back in July for a few days away from work and home. Badged on the website as a boutique bed and breakfast, we had imagined sumptuous beds, quirky decoration and generally a modern twist on the classic bed and breakfast. We were also intrigued about the eco-credentials splashed on the website and the tomatoes... More

We decided for this B&B mainly from very good reports posted on the website. We should have read the Tripadvisor critics more carefully, because they are closer to reality. The place is very quiet and you have a very nice countryside view from the garden. But the room is small, quite dark and pretty old-dated in furniture and smells a... More

We were staying here for a famil wedding nearby and had booked all three rooms. From what I saw all three rooms were similar size - ours was the middle one and looking at older comments on this website I would suggest that various changes had been made - ie there is a skylight in the ceiling to give more...

Buttervilla deserves every accolade it has received. An oasis of calm, it is perfectly situated to experience the delights of South East Cornwall and all that Cornwall and Devon have to offer. Our one night stay involved a fabulous lunch at Jamie Oliver's 15 at Watergate Bay overlooking the beach and wonderful chilli crab claws in the evening at the... More

Before I start I should point out that we stayed in a number of B&Bs in Cornwall on our visit and had chosen Buttervilla because it seemed to be similar to the other B&Bs we had booked. Sadly this was not the case, perhaps I had expected too much but for £85 per night I had hoped for a comfortable,... More

Just returned from three wonderful nights at Buttervilla. We booked the accommodation for the end of our Cornwall holiday as we were attending a wedding nearby and were so very pleased we did.

or just relax and admire the scenery For foodies like us, the landlady recommended always the best place to eat. The Buttervilla as your starting point for excursions to so many places of interest is very convenient. Our days were dramatic, outstanding, delicious and unforgettable.

Having visited the website and read such positive reports on Tripadvisor we expected great things. We were staying as we were going to a wedding nearby and were told when booking that as it was holiday season there would be a 3 day minimum stay. We had originally wanted to book 2 nights but accepted this as we thought it... More

The old farm house is off the beaten track but easy to find. Jill was a very welcoming hostess, full of local knowledge and recommendations as to where to go and where to eat.

We stayed in this farmhouse because it was very close to a party we were attending. It is an old farmhouse but the room and shower were very clean. The breakfast was excellent but no porridge was available (something I have every day). It had free wi-fi (essential for me these days) and good tv reception. Take a torch if... More
