Butterwell Farm riverside holiday cottages in Cornwall

Riverside holiday cottages and wildlife estate in the heart of Cornwall

We are a family run business that has been welcoming guests since 1975

Butterwell Farm has four holiday cottages on a private 40-acre nature reserve on the banks of the River Camel in North Cornwall.

We have properties sleeping 2-7 guests each.

Direct access to the Camel Trail.

If you’re looking for peace and tranquillity surrounded by nature and wildlife, then look no further.

Over 400 reviews averaging 5-stars, meaning our guests return year after year.

Stunning views of the Camel Valley, River Camel and the Camel Valley Vineyard.

Perfectly situated between Cornwall’s North and South coasts.

40 acres of riverside walks, ancient woodland, wildlife ponds, and our small flock of Jacob sheep.

With our own private stretch of the River Camel, Butterwell Farm offers spectacular salmon and sea trout fishing.

An ideal countryside retreat that is walking distance to pub, tea garden and Vineyard, and just 10 miles from Padstow on the Camel Trail.

After a day out exploring the many nearby fishing villages, beaches or inland adventures, you can cosy up in front of the log burner in one of our beautifully appointed riverside holiday cottages.

Butterwell Farm is the perfect base for exploring the whole of Cornwall with a host of nearby sandy beaches and Cornwall’s famous and rugged Coastal Path and Bodmin Moor – our location is a walker’s paradise. Why not bring your bicycles or hire them locally and roam along the adjacent famous Camel Trail or explore the nearby extensive off-road forestry trails.

Just a short walk across the river is the famous Camel Valley Vineyard with their award-winning and world-famous English wine, and they offer wine tours and tastings.

Whether it’s a family holiday, romantic getaway or a short break with friends, Butterwell Farm has the perfect property for you.

We look forward to welcoming you to Butterwell Farm riverside holiday cottages in Cornwall soon, Sam and Rachel.
