Butterwell is beautifully situated in the peaceful Camel Valley opposite the Camel Valley Vineyard. It has fishing rights on the Camel within its own 40 acre estate and direct access to the Camel Trail for walking and cycling. It is well situated for visiting Cornwall's North Coast (Padstow, Polzeath, Newquay, etc.) and the South Coast (Fowey etc.) as well as local attractions such as Lanhydrock House, NT. The property is dog friendly and has 3 double bedrooms and bathrooms. The property was very clean on arrival and is well equipped.Close to Bodmin for supermarkets and shops.
We rode the camel trail, visited the sea life aquarium, explored rock pools on the beach and enjoyed the local fish and chips. Perfect for little and big people over the Easter weekend.
Stayed here before and must say it ticks all the right boxes. We stayed as a fishing party and were able to fish all day before retiring to one of the local watering holes for an enjoyable evening meal. Sam and Rachel plus Jack are very good hosts andthey are very hard workers too. There is plenty to do locally so make sure to leave some time for visiting the town and surrounding areas. We shall be back
The location was excellent - next door to the Camel Trail, very close to the Eden Project and it was easy to reach lots of beaches for body boarding. Despite the wet weather we really enjoyed our stay and found plenty of things to keep us busy. The house was comfortable, clean and very well appointed. My grandson loved having a television in his bedroom! The information provided about the area was very thorough and helpful.
This was our fourth holiday at the Butterwell South Wing, so do I need to say more? For our family it is in the perfect location to explore Cornwall and the location is just amazing, situated in the Camel Valley with a private stretch of the Camel river running through. There is also access to the Camel trail from the cottage and fishing onsite. Beautiful country walks and pure peace and solitude is available if that's what you desire with plenty of wildlife to observe.
Rachel and Sam are always very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I can highly recommend this cottage for a perfect holiday in Cornwal.
Butterwell Farm offers a slice of cornish magic. It's a hidden gem, nestled on the slopes of the Camel Valley. The welcome, the accomodation, the obvious passion for the wildlife - Sam and Rachel are amazing hosts - making myself, my wife and two young daughters (4 and 6) feel instantly at home.
We stayed for two weeks in the South Wing and found the location to be spot on for anyone with a young family looking to explore the delights that Cornwall has to offer.
The accomodation itself was great with the bonus of a room on the ground floor (ideal for aging parents, who visited for a few days). The grounds of Butterwell Farm are probably the best/quickest "work de-stresser" I've ever encountered - quiet evening strolls along the river bank are highly recommended - my eldest observed her first deer, fox, jumping fish and otter (she was over the moon).
My only regret... I didn't get to take Sam up on his offer of a fishing lesson (something I will rectify next year).
Top marks for a top location run by a top couple.
