“Rachel & Sam have a truly stunning property in a fabulous location, very breathtaking views and peaceful. The property itself is well equipped and homely. The hosts are so accommodating and helpful. You have to book to truly understand how amazing this place is.”

I little bit of heaven in the Cornish countryside. We had a fabulous stay at Buzzard Barn, part of Butterwell Farm. The property was charming, clean, well decorated, private and quiet, it had amazing views across the valley and fantastic outside spaces, the perfect place to unwind after such a stressful year! Sam and Rachel we fantastic hosts, really welcoming us. We didn’t visit during the fishing season, but would come back to give fly fishing ago and to continue explore the area that has so much to offer.”

“A truly idyllic location overlooking the River Camel and onto the Camel Valley Vineyards but still within close reach of amenities in Bodmin and Wadebridge and not too far from all the beautiful beaches of North Cornwall. The barn is beautifully done, fully equipped kitchen and a gorgeous garden with plenty of walking routes from the back gate. It was spotlessly clean and the extra measures taken for Covid19 were excellent and clearly explained. Sam and Rachel were easily contactable and quick to respond to any questions we had. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!”

Comfortable, tranquility in a convenient location. A truly fantastic cottage in a lovely, tranquil location. The cottage itself is very well furnished with everything that you need for a comfortable week. The location is truly magical, with views to stir the soul. I could spend forever sitting on the window seat staring at the view. Great location to explore the North Cornish Coast and then return to a peaceful spot at the end of the day.”

Well equipped barn conversion in a stunning setting. The property is situated in a stunning setting, overlooking the river Camel and the local vineyard. Although you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere the location is very convenient for both the north and south coasts as well as visiting the Eden project and other tourist attractions. Bring your bikes as you can access the Camel Trail directly from the property. Rachel and Sam were great at communicating and letting us know about all the precautions they had taken to ensure our stay was safe and I would highly recommend them.”

“Rachel and Sam’s place is a great place to explore the local area from. Located in the Camel Valley and right next door to the Camel Trail there are plenty of options for walks and bike rides. The house itself is beautiful, with fantastic views and very comfy beds. We had a brilliant time here and would thoroughly recommend it to future travellers.”

“We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting family, the house was lovely and fully equipped with everything you would need. We had 2 young children with us and the house was brilliant for them with so much space inside and out. The views were also amazing! Rachel and Sam were very quick with responses when we had a couple of queries. Would highly recommend staying here.”

“Stunning cottage in a fantastic location. Everything supplied and all with a beautiful view. We especially loved the window seat with views over the river and vineyard. The host was very welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend to others. Perfect location for exploring all that Cornwall has to offer.”

Amazing stay. We stayed over the February half term and were bowled over by the property and location. The barn itself was immaculate and just as good, if not better, than the photos. It was spacious and well thought out and had everything you needed. The location is amazing with breathtaking scenery right on your doorstep. The camel trail is a 5 minute walk away through woods and over a beautiful river. We had a dog and we were abe to let her off for the entire walk along the trail (but beware of cyclists at busier times). Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this property. Both Sam and Rachel were so helpful and we hope to return in the future for more exploring.”

Perfect. Wow – what a lovely cottage in a great peaceful location. Hosts were amazing, place spotless and really cozy and well equipped with fab views. Located midway along the Camel trail and having direct access to it make Buzzard Barn the perfect place to explore the area by bike. We rode with kids (aged 8 and 6) all the way to Padstow and back in approx 3 hours. I would recommend Buzzard Barn to anyone.”

“Buzzard Barn was an ideal retreat for exploring Cornwall, in particular to get to Eden Project early doors. The Barn was beautiful but also relaxing and cosy- the weather was awful whilst we were staying so we really appreciated the fact that the fire had already been laid for us. A great place to stay.”

Stunning Location! The location of Buzzard barn is simply stunning, with absolutely beautiful views of the camel valley & great walks right on your doorstep. There are lots of great dog friendly Cornish pubs nearby & top class restaurants in Padstow, which is just a short drive away. The property itself is extremely comfortable for a family of six & very tastefully decorated. Beds are very comfy & great showers in both bathrooms. It had everything we needed for our Christmas break. The owners Rachel & Sam had even put up a Christmas tree for us which was a wonderful touch. We will definitely stay in Buzzard barn again!”


Tracey Hill, stayed August 2018 *****
Fantastic location and accommodation. Buzzard Barn is in a wonderful location with fantastic views over the Camel valley and out onto the vineyard. It is within easy reach of the coast and towns we wanted to visit and is very peaceful. The cottage was very clean and had been recently refurbished to a very high standard. Beds were super comfy and it was extremely well equipped. Love the upside down layout which makes use of he lovely views. it was safe for our dog as had an enclosed garden and there were great walks from your door. All in all a great place to stay and we will definitely be going back.”

“Wonderful location with brilliant hiking from your backyard. Outstanding views and wildlife spotting….superb place to get away from it all and use as a base to explore Cornwall. We loved it!”

“This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been! Tha barn has everything you need, but the most incredible thing is the fantastic view on the river Camel valley. For us was just like entering a dream. Our daughters loved the nature all around: we had a garden just for us, which is absolutely beautiful, but they could also go exploring all the area by themself safely. Rachel and Sam are fantastic hosts: they gave us all the information we might need and Rachel was so kind with our kids showing them all the animals of the farm, their dogs, the chickens… what a memorable holiday in Cornwall. The only negative thing that I can sincerly point out, is that we could spend only 3 days there. We really didn’t want to leave… but we will come back, with more time to explore all the region! Thank Rachel, for everything.”

“Thanks Rachel and Sam, we had an amazing time in Cornwall. At our arrival we found a very clean and tidy cottage beautifully located with an amazing view over the river Camel and the Camel Valley Vineyard which is definitely worth a visit! The location was exactly what we were looking for: in the middle of nowhere but still well connected with the next supermarket just a 10 min drive away. It was also the ideal spot to explore that part of Cornwall with the Eden Project and the Coast just 30 min away. Absolutely recommended and we hope to come back soon.”

“Stayed at Buzzards Barn with my family over 4 days of half term. You will be hard pushed to find a prettier location in Cornwall with stunning views across the valley and woodland and river on your back garden. Property is fantastic with great open fire and very spacious bedrooms and kitchen. Kids loved the location and were occupied throughout! Very close to Eden Project and Jamaica Inn as well as the scary Bodmin Jail! A real jewel of a property. Sam was the perfect host and a lovely guy!”
