“We had a fantastic stay between Christmas and New Year. The cottage was the perfect size, with great views. Although the weather wasn’t great, we had a wonderful time – the log-burning stove was a real plus, and the whole place is well appointed. Our dog had a great time too – the stair gate is a great touch for stopping dogs (or children!) exploring the downstairs bedrooms. Rachel and Sam were very helpful and responsive. We would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the beautiful Cornish countryside.”

“Booked last minute for Christmas 2022. I can’t actually believe this place was still available considering how beautiful it is. The owner had decorated a real mini Christmas tree in the lounge which was a lovely touch. Honestly the nicest Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. Beautiful surroundings, immaculate rooms, much bigger than it seems in the photos, warm, log fire and the beds are very comfortable. I cooked Christmas dinner here and found all the kitchenware I needed. It’s so peaceful and the cottage is so warm and modern without being soulless. Would love to visit again.”

“Rachel and Sam’s cottage was absolutely perfect. It’s in a particularly beautiful, peaceful location in the Camel Valley with direct access to the river and a wonderful view – but only 10-15 minutes from Wadebridge with all facilities there. The cottage was extremely warm and toasty when we arrived and the ‘upside-down’ nature of the accommodation (bedrooms ground floor in the side of the hill, living space upstairs) meant the bedrooms were particularly cosy. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms and showers were fantastic! Really hot water and loads of water pressure. Rachel and Sam accept dogs (essential for us) and there is a built in stair gate to keep the dogs out of the bedrooms. Obviously great for small children too! The cottage was spotless and communication throughout was excellent. We had a really enjoyable short break and I could not recommend the cottage highly enough.”


Alison, stayed November 2022 *****
“Thank you for everything in your beautiful barn. It is a truly lovely place to stay. We absolutely loved our stay in Buzzard Barn. It is so cozy with beautiful views out over the river. The accommodation has been so thoughtfully done with many lovely touches. It is in a great location with a fabulous walk along the side of the river, or up to the Camel Trail directly off the property. We wished we were staying longer and hope to return.”


Debbie, stayed September 2022 *****
Returned for the second time. Another fabulous holiday at Buzzard Barn, a truly magical place where the peace and tranquility is amazing and views to die for, thanks Sam & Rachel.”


Matt, stayed August 2022 *****
“We had a fabulous stay at Butterwell Farm. Rachel and Sam are great hosts. Their communication was great throughout and were always on hand if we had any questions. The cottage was lovely and what amazing views and places to walk around the farm. A define place to visit and stay with easy access to the sites of Cornwall. We hope to revisit again.”


Julia, stayed July 2022 *****
“Our family have been enjoying family holidays, particularly at Buzzard Barn, for the past 10-12 years. We adore the views looking out over the Camel Valley including the vineyard, the river and the woods beyond! We enjoy the rural idyll of the barn on the Butterwell Estate in Nanstallon, it is so well placed for the beaches and places of interest in the North of Cornwall! We have stayed in all four properties within the estate but always return to the barn for the whole, ever growing, family holidays! Long may it continue.”


Dick, stayed June 2022 *****
“Another brilliant & peaceful fortnight in this very comfortable barn conversion. Externally the countryside and views are simply stunning and the visiting herd of Jacobs sheep are a delight. The frontage onto the Camel river and walks in the farms woodlands are so relaxing with access across the river up onto the Camel Trail. Our dogs were in heaven .
Internally the barn is well equipped, stylishly decorated throughout and comfortable. The WiFi connection is good.”


Daisy, stayed March 2022 *****
“A fantastic cosy cottage just 5 minutes from the camel trail, with wonderful views and plenty of space. We also sat outside and saw some of the best constellations we have seen! What a perfect spot. What a wonderful stay! We will be in touch for another stay very soon!”


Sarah, stayed February 2022 *****
“Such a beautiful place! We didn’t want to take ourselves away from the view. Perfect place for families to stay whilst visiting Cornwall. We will definitely be staying again in the future. Thank you for a lovely holiday!”


Julie, stayed February 2022 *****
“Fabulous. A lovely, peaceful hideaway in the depths of a beautiful valley. Perfect for doing nothing…relaxing and enjoying the log fire. The barn has all you need to be comfortable and enjoy your stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the water hot, the logs plentiful and the beds comfortable. The information pack is perfect for instructions on how to light the fire and other necessary details. The Camel Trail is perfect for dog walking and blowing the cobwebs away. This was our second visit- we will be booking again.”


Liz, stayed January 2022 *****
“Idyllic. We were delighted from the minute we arrived. Cosy and immaculate cottage in ideal position with stunning views across the Camel Valley. Quiet and peaceful situation perfect for enjoying nature. The kitchen was very well equipped with quality appliances. Beds super comfortable, bathroom and shower great. The garden was perfect for our little dog who enjoyed the company of the Jacob sheep in the neighbouring field. The barn was in a perfect position for visiting the Camel Trail, the vineyard and Padstow but sufficiently off the main tourist route.”


Samantha, stayed January 2022 *****
“Excellent location, short drive to the beaches and the Eden project. The cottage is beautiful, spacious and very clean. I would 100% recommend! Wish we could have stayed longer!”


Julian, stayed December 2021 *****
“Great Escape. Just a wonderful little place tucked into the beautiful Camel Valley. Spotless and very well finished and appointed upside down home with elevated views to the river and to the vineyard, enjoying all the benefits of the Camel Valley. Wished we taken bikes even for bleak December. The Butterwell Farm run all this so well and deserve the acclaim they must so evidently enjoy. Even the beds and the linen – like a top hotel.”


Rachel, stayed September 2021 *****
“Fantastic barn. Buzzard Barn was one of the best accommodations I have stayed in. The location of the barn makes it so easy to visit every part of Cornwall and we did. The barn is very comfy and clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.”


Karen, stayed October 2021 *****
“Amazing cottage and views very comfortable and well equipped. Accommodated us as two families and dogs. Would recommend definitely.”


Debbie, stayed September 2021 *****
“A view to remember. We enjoyed a fabulous holiday despite the weather, Buzzard barn was a joy so much so we booked to return next year the day we arrived! If you are looking for a peaceful location with stunning views you can’t go wrong.”


Dick, stayed September 2021 *****
“A little piece of heaven. After a long break due to Covid we finally returned to Buzzard Barn and as ever we were delighted. The upgraded facilities (internal and external) are excellent. The setting is superb, we were enchanted. A gem of a holiday cottage.”


Julie, stayed September 2021 *****
“Fantastic. What a jewel! A fantastic find that we shall book again and again. No attention to detail spared including instructions on how to set and light the log burner. Everything was spotless and evidently concerned about our environment with cleaning products suitable. Amazing views. Fantastic walks. Just wonderful.”


Julie, stayed September 2021 *****
“Nigel and I would like to just say thank you for our fantastic experience staying with you. The barn and its facilities were fabulous and we couldn’t have wished for more. Thank you for all the hard work you put in to make the barn hospitable and clean. Attention to detail is above and beyond and we look forward to staying with you again.”

Becki B, stayed April 2021 *****
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.”


Lucy, stayed November 2020 *****
“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!”


Surreyhillsmum, stayed August 2020 ****
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.”


Lucy F, stayed July 2020 *****
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.”


Maeve, stayed March 2020 *****
“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.”


Harriet, stayed February 2020 *****
“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.”


Val P, stayed August 2019 *****
“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.”

“An outstanding house in an ideal location. Hosts were very welcoming, thoroughly enjoyed our short break there. Would definitely visit again.”


Marooba, stayed February 2019 *****
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.”


TJCornwall, stayed January 2019 *****
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.”


Chris, stayed December 2018 *****
“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.”


Joanne W, stayed December 2018 *****
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.”


Allison, stayed April 2017 *****
“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!”


Gioia, stayed April 2017 *****
“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.”


Felix, stayed April 2015 *****

“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.”


Timothy, stayed February 2015 *****
“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!”
