We first came to this cottage in 2012 and have returned yearly since. We love Cornwall and why look for any other location when we are always so happy here. Owners are very friendly and helpful. It is great waking up to all the sights and sounds of the farm and surrounding countryside. The cottage is comfortable and cosy, great to come back to after a day out. Also love the fact we can bring our small dog.

This is a superbly equipped comfortable and cosy cottage Everything had been thought of down to the last detail. An extremely positive holiday experience,right from original booking to our reluctant departure at the end of our stay Angela had thought of everything even down to a sewing kit ,and the welcome pack of scones jam and cream with a bottle of Cornish apple juice ,milk in the fridge and beautiful roses was a really lively gesture This cottage is a little gem and I would happily return any time and would thoroughly recommend it to friends and family Once again Faultless!!

August 2017

Wouldn't hesitate to stay again, or recommend to others, we have had many holidays in Cornwall and stayed in quite different accommodations, this one rates with very best !!

July 2017

A lovely little cottage, very clean and well equipped in a great location not far from Looe. Perfect for my husband and our dog. We had a really good holiday.

June 2017

Our dog enjoyed the enclosed garden when we could see him peering through the long grass! Shame the owner only came to cut it on the last afternoon of our stay encroaching on our privacy (too little too late). Wifi was advertised! This was no existent. When we asked the owner about the problem she replied " what do you expect we're in the middle of the countryside" We asked her to contact her provider BT. She replied " They won't do anything for two or three days" so nothing was done to rectify the problem. Please note We booked this cottage as it advertised wifi. As I require wifi for my work, this impacted not only on my work but for my income! The cottage was plagued by flies all week and despite spraying the entire inside twice daily did nothing to rectify the problem. This alone spoilt our stay here!

We were so sorry to hear that you have problems with the WiFi connection during your holiday. We'll have a chat with the Owner to make sure that BT have now addressed any issues and we'll be in touch directly to discuss. Tanya, Customer Support

I had a wonderful time at Butterwell Cottage, the hosts were lovely and made me feel very welcome, it exceeded my expectations and I was not disappointed I was delighted.

The two dogs Toby and Sky were a welcoming sight after a days exploring the beautiful countryside. I had such an adventure and I took away some very happy memories.

This is a cosy little cottage with everything one person/a couple could need- even in the winter months.

Perfect cottage for 2 and a dog - relaxing, peaceful home from home.

February 2017

This property had everything you could possably think of! We loved every second of our holiday and the location was beautiful. We felt safe in the knowledge that the family were close by if we needed anything but also it felt completely private, we could really pretend it was our own little home for the week. Cream tea on arrival,flowers, juice and milk to get us started was so unexpected but so lovely, even the pheasants in the garden everyday was magical, i could go on forever .. we just loved it

A wonderful little cottage in a fantastic location-quiet and peaceful away but well positioned for visiting lots of popular attractions. We had a great welcome, the cottage was really well equipped and we enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Our sixteenth-month old son was very well catered for, and particularly loved the friendly dogs!

July 2016

A lovely cottage in a lovely part of the world. Our stay was relaxed and comfortable and with a pub a short walk away, it couldn't be better.

Quiet rural location on a working farm. Enclosed garden for dog.

June 2015

Perfect location for walks on Bodmin Moor and the Coastal Path. Lovely clean cottage with everything you need for a stay whether for a few days or for 2 weeks as we did. Mrs Barrett the owner couldn't have been kinder, the cake and apple juice on our arrival was well received.

June 2015

This is an outstanding, homely, welcoming cottage for quiet holidays. It looks exactly like the pictures and is equipped as advertised plus a few nice extras. You instantly notice how much care the owners have put into this place. Excellent Wi-Fi.

4th year at Butterwell, we return every year as we love the cottage, the farm, Angela and family are really friendly and we love the whole area, will be back next year.

March 2015

A lovely cottage in a nice location. We spent 3 very nice days there. Comfortable, quiet and private, the property exceeded our expectations by far. It's very well maintained and has got all the various bits and pieces that you may not expect but that add a nice touch to your stay and allow a cosy night in if you have no evening plans - extra cushions and blankets, board games, DVD player and full kitchen equipment. There is a very nice pub in a nearby village, a pleasant walk away and we found the location very convenient for further ventures into Cornwall.

April 2014

Booked at short notice and very pleased with the whole experience. Good, secure garden for our dog, added interest of 2 goats for companionship (once she got to know them!). Comfortable cottage with everything we needed for a short break. A welcome cake, juice and milk very much appreciated. Would return and recommend.

September 2013

Without any question at all, we would highly recommend this cottage for a relaxing break for a couple with or without a dog, its got eveything you need, the walks, the places to see and the comfort of the cottage. And if you travel far to get there, the welcome gift that the owner puts out for you is in its self, just what the doctor ordered.

September 2013

We had a lovely warm welcome with the lady of the house and there were flowers, cake, applejuice as well as milk in the fridge for us to get started. Perfect location for long walks and sightseeing it`s also well worth visiting is the Cider Shop down the road towards Looe.

August 2013

Butterwell Cottage is the best self catering holiday accomodation that we have ever stayed in. The setting was second to none and the cottage was exceptionally clean and so obviously well maintained. The enclosed garden was ideal for our dog, helping to make it a relaxing holiday knowing that he could be let out safely. The homemade cake & local apple juice on arrival was absolutely lovely and very welcoming after a long journey. We loved feeding the goats everyday and all in all it was the most relaxing holiday that we have ever had. Thank you so much. Paul & Sharon White
