Buny Whey is a delight: a perfectly judged combination of rustic features and modern comforts. The cottage is spacious but cosy and warm, and is situated in a lovely, tranquil location adjacent to the Luxulyan Valley. We hope to return in the future!

We loved our stay at Bunny Whey due to the great location, beautiful and well-furnished cottage and play equipment in the garden that our young daughter enjoyed.

July 2020

Quiet peaceful and beautiful location. Great for access to walk beaches and attractions. Footpath to the village with it’s excellent local pub. Highly recommended.

July 2020

We loved the peace and space. The garden was perfect for our teenagers and dog. Location with view was superb. Really stunning place to return to after a day out. Great open kitchen and through lounge and whole property beautifully furnished. Having two bathrooms useful for 4 with teenagers. Beds were very comfortable. Great to have a good pub within walking distance. Steve and Alex the owners were very friendly and on hand if needed but kept their distance. They helped provide antibacterial spray when our dog cut his claw. We will definitely be returning.

Wonderful location, superb hosts, all within a few miles of the most beautiful Cornish coastline walks.

November 2019

Wonderful home, warm and comfortable, very well positioned for exploring the Cornish countryside and coastal walks. Owners are friendly and welcoming.

September 2019

We have enjoyed many holidays in Cornwall over the years, but this was our first stay at Buny Whey. What an excellent location and such a lovely property, so warm and welcoming. Alex and Steve are great hosts, very helpful and friendly but not intrusive at all. Our collie Maeve just loved the that was it for us...booked for two weeks next June!!!

September 2019

Owners very helpful but not overly intrusive. One of the best properties of the many we have stayed at over the years.

August 2019

We had the most amazing holiday, it's rare that the website pictures of the external aspect of the property actually reflects reality! We have often wondered if photos were taken using a crane! Buny Whey was the exception ! The peace and quiet and external space was great for us and our 4 year old, so many places of interest, attractions and beaches close to hand with a pub within walking distance ?? the interior of the property was beautiful and coordinated. Alex and steve have obviously put a lot of thought and care into the property and were both very welcoming and friendly

May 2019

Lovely warm and comfy cottage. The views are beautiful and it was nice to be able to stroll down to the pub for a meal. Great garden for us to sit in and it was enclosed so nice and secure for the dog. I'd definitely recommend it.

May 2019

What a treat this little barn cottage is! Just a short drive to every where. The accommodation is very comfortable, and the kitchen well equipped. A lovely morning dog walk and the pub is very dog and human friendly and about 10 mins walk away on quiet lanes. The garden view is amazing, the setting is so quiet. It was nice to have a dog proof garden so we could really relax. The local farm shop is a gem. Crafts and 'smellies' as well as food. Ideal for we ladies to have a wee shop! Lanhydrock (a NT property) is close by and despite not being a stately home person I found this house very interesting (can't take dogs into the house but there is a large courtyard next to it and we took turns going in). We walked and walked - this is an ideal walkers base.

December 2018

We had a lovely 3 night mini-break at Buny Whey. The location is beautiful - peaceful, private and perfectly situated for us visiting our daughter and family in Lostwithiel.

August 2018

Unique layout of the cottage. The right place to relax and enjoy Corniche landscape and lifestyle. Lovely places to visit.

June 2018

June 2018

over the years we have stayed in many cottages but this was the best we have stayed at. highly recommended

April 2018

The fact that we have used Buny Whey 4 times says much ,does it not?

April 2018

Great place to stay, will definitely be returning again soon.......the owners Stephen & Alex brilliant and very helpful.

Loved the views which overlooked Landlivery village & church. Ideal setting to relax and unwind! Recommend the Crown Inn for food and beverages plus a visit to the village pop-up shop opposite the Church which has a great selection of produce and gifts. Everything supplied from local small holdings and run by volunteers from the area.

Absolutely brilliant holiday, our dog loved the enclosed garden and chasing her ball!

Finally to add that we would be quite happy to live there.

Kind Regards John & Tracy Moore

This was our 2nd visit to Buny Whey and we enjoyed it just as much as the 1st time. The cottage is immaculate and there is nothing more you could want while there. Our dog loves the big enclosed garden and there is lots of walks to do and local dog friendly beaches.

It was our second stay at Buny Whey and we had such an amazing time again, that we are looking to visit again in 2018. The property and setting are wonderful, we have two small girls who love playing in the garden while we sit and enjoy the stunning views. The property is so well located to visit parts of North and South Cornwall and there are some wonderful nearby coves, walks and family friendly beaches...... we cannot wait to return.

July 2017

Lovely property with a great garden especially for our kids and dog. The kitchen, diner, lounge felt very spacious.

Buny Whey is in a rural and lovely location with views accross the fields to the local village. The large garden is easily accessed and ideal for children to play and adults to relax or join in!

Buny Whey is a lovely converted barn that is excellent for adults and young children alike. The secure garden, great play equipment and range of animals nearby kept our 3 year old entertained for hours. For adults it provides peace and quiet with easy access to lovely coastline and walks.

June 2015

We have just enjoyed our second visit to wonderful Buny Whey. It is a super cottage in a great location. It is particularly good for dog owners because the garden is properly enclosed.

March 2015

A very well equipped cottage with good outdoor space. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. The open plan living area meant that it was light and airy even though the weather was gloomy. The wood burner was very welcome as well. We would recommend this cottage.

January 2015

Buny Whey was all that we had hoped for. Quiet, lovely view, very comfortable and dogs are allowed, Home from home ! The coast is easily accessible and to come back to a warm environment , in January, was bliss. The wood burner was the icing on the cake. We will be back !

December 2014

Buny Whey is a perfect hideaway in a friendly village with a good pub in walking distance from the cottage. The owners are lovely - very helpful and caring and we are looking forward to our third trip back already!

November 2014

A beautiful stable conversion with a real home from home feel. A wonderful home made cream tea welcome and stunning views across the local land. The owners livestock were lovely to look over and even though the weather on our stay wasn't perfect this beautiful cottage made it all worth while! I would recommend this to a couple looking for a quiet getaway or a family looking for a comfortable stay with all the attractions not to far away!

October 2014

Fantastic stay in a lovely cottage, beautifully decorated and cosy on the cooler autumn nights. Our dog was particularly impressed with the huge enclosed garden
