“Lovely cottage with delightful views”
Reviewed 10 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We've just returned from a week at Buzzard barn. The cottage is located a couple of miles from Bodmin, has beautiful views from the lounge and spacious kitchen towards the Camel river and surrounding countryside and makes an excellent base from which to explore the local area. We visited Burgh Island, Plymouth, Newquay ,Padstow, Port Issac and the Eden project which were all fairly easy to get to. We brought our Border Collie with us and there were plenty of nice walks from the cottage.
A 15 minute walk from the cottage is the Camel Valley winery were you can sit on the terrace and enjoy a glass of wine which is handy as there isn't really a local pub nearby. They also do wine tastings at 5pm on Wednesdays for £15 which was a first for me but one which i'd recommend. Also about 15 mins away is a tea room which serve good light lunches and have plenty of seating outside in the gardens. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Buzzard barn and would recommend it if your looking for a peaceful holiday that's ideally located for exploring. Just a final tip, there are extensive roadworks going on in Bodmin so please follow the directions that are sent by the owners and don't try and tackle the centre of Bodmin with the sat nav as I made the mistake of doing ! If you're thinking of taking bikes the camel trail is just down the road which is ideal for cycling. We hope to be back very soon.

“ideal location”
Reviewed 18 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was an ideal location, we had absolutely terrible weather lots of rain but when we did manage to get out walking it was great.
It was a lovely log fire but tended to be a bit smokey.
Nice & secluded this place would be ideal in the summer months & especially for fishing.
Lots of good eating places around & friendly owners.
Only minus we thought the house it was a little dated but don't let this put you off it's still a great location.
All in all a good break.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our cottage. We do have plans to modernise Buzzard Barn but being careful not to loose its charm and traditional features which our guests love and return to year after year - we hope to see you back at Butterwell Farm one day.

“This place ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed 18 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Butterwell Farm is one of the best located Accomodation Lets in the South West. If you are here during the Summer months it is ideal for beach hunting as there are so many around the area. As it is dog friendly you don't need to leave your pet at home and they can come along too. During Autumn and Winter months there are a selection of Pubs/Restaurants local to the farm so you will not be short of eating holes. Fishing on the river Camel is Fab and you can also take a 20min walk to the Camel Valley vineyard which is just across the valley. Accomodation is Great and the hosts very friendly people. Well worth a visit. !!

“Beautiful! ”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We are just home from a fabulous week spent at Buzzards Barn! Location is stunning and a great base to explore all of the delights that Cornwall has to offer. We are going to miss waking up to the deer, sheep, cows, birds and all the other wildlife at butterwell farm!
