Welcome to Butterwell Farm | The Ultimate Rural Retreat

Rural holiday accommodation and renowned salmon and sea trout fishery in the heart of Cornwall.

Come and immerse yourself in nature on our forty-acre private estate, nestled in the picturesque Camel Valley in North Cornwall. Butterwell Farm is a peaceful and idyllic location on the Camel Trail and Camel River perfectly situated between Cornwall’s North & South coasts. With our own private stretch of the River Camel, Butterwell offers a quiet oasis of abundant rare wildlife with direct access to the Camel Trail. The Camel Valley is regarded by many as one of the most unspoilt valleys in Cornwall.

Enjoy woodland walks, wildlife ponds and exceptional game fishing at your front door, as well as many beautiful sandy beaches within a short drive. Whether it’s a family holiday, romantic getaway or a short-break with friends, Butterwell Farm has the perfect property for you.


“I have visited Cornwall many times over the years and have not stayed in such a peaceful spot before.  The location and views are wonderful – it is totally peaceful – the only sounds are the birds and the river…”

“The surrounding land is a paradise. Privately owned by Butterwell, we walked for hours and encountered only wildlife…”

Coronavirus update 23.02.2021

Butterwell Farm is now taking bookings from 12th April for single households and from 17th May for groups of six or two households. We look forwards to welcoming guests back to this special part of Cornwall and we have been certified as “Good to Go” by Visit England, the National Tourist Board of England.  At Butterwell we have been taking all possible steps to respond to the challenges that Covid-19 brings to us all. We have a “fogger” which dispersesnatural and eco-friendly anti-bacterial sanitiser across every surface inside the property both before and after our cleaners have been in. This gives us, our cleaners and our guests peace of mind and confidence when visiting Butterwell Farm.  We believe we offer one of the safest possible environments for guests. With reference to recent government guidance concerning holiday accommodation and social distancing in the UK, we would like to be sure all potential guests understand Butterwell Farm has completely separate holiday cottages with separate private fenced and gated gardens, access roads and paths.  Please be assured that we, at Butterwell, are doing everything we can to minimise the chances of infection. We have written covid-specific cleaning procedures that us and our cleaning team follow rigorously.  Should your holiday need to be cancelled due to government imposed travel restrictions due to coronavirus meaning our business is forced to close or you are unable to travel we will offer you a full refund or the opportunity to defer your credit to a future booking should you wish to. Please see our full terms and conditions for more details.

We respect your privacy

“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!…”
