If you’ve always wanted to cycle the Camel Trail in Cornwall, then Butterwell Farm is the ideal base to start your cycling adventure. We have 4 holiday cottages sleeping 2-7 each on a 40-acre nature reserve on the banks of the River Camel.

All of our properties have suitable private bike storage if you want to bring your own bikes. Alternatively we partner with a fantastic bike delivery service, Go Bycycle, who will delivery and collect your bikes from Butterwell Farm for FREE.

The 18-mile trail is suitable for all ages and abilities. Take your time and do one section each day, or if you’re feeling energetic you can complete the whole trail in one day. And even if you’re not on a bike it’s a lovely trail to walk or run too. The trail runs alongside the River Camel and Camel Estuary which means there are stunning views the whole way, and a magnitude of wildlife to spot.

We are both very familiar with the trail so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to be in touch, and we look forward to welcoming you to Butterwell Farm soon for your Camel Trail experience.
