Beautiful cottage with lovely countryside views. Nigel the owner was very helpful with places to visit nearby. Great scones. Was a short break but very relaxing, especially in the hot tub . Our dog was very relaxed too.

What a gorgeous cottage, in a stunning location!! As a family of 4 with a dog we felt very at home straight away. The cottage is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a weeks break. The best bit being sitting by the fire pit looking over the valley with a glass of wine in the evening. Nigel the owner made us feel very welcome and the scone were delicious!! Highly recommend for a romantic get away or a family break!!

We had an amazing holiday at Buttervilla with our family of 4. From the gorgeous countryside views, the well equipped cottage to the local tips from Nigel, our host. The hot tub was a bonus to relax in after a day of sight seeing or fun at the beach. Would recommend for a peaceful holiday away from the crowds.

Nigel and Mel make your stay a relaxing one, nothing too much trouble and very friendly. The hot tub was a joy, as were Mel's scones, or scones, whichever way you say it (cream on the top though)! Position of the cottage on top of the hill is near but far enough away from the main road. Silence is lovely.

We really enjoyed our stay at Buttervilla. The barn conversion is beautiful with excellent decor. It was lovely to have a Christmas tree and some decorations and the scones were delicious! If we were being really picky there were some minor points that we feel could be improved. The two seater sofa in the lounge area is extremely low and wasn't particular comfortable. We also felt there could be better lighting in the downstairs , particularly in the food preparation area/breakfast bar. It was lovely that our Labrador was able to stay with us but having an enclosed area around the cottage for her to run around in would be very beneficial to dog owners and could be easily achieved given the current layout.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience of Buttervilla Retreat - we're delighted to see that you enjoyed your Christmas break, and especially the scones! We really appreciate your thoughts on your personal preference for a slightly higher sofa and your great suggestions to make the outside space even better. It can be tricky to meet everyone's specific requirements in terms of things such as sofa style and height, but we're grateful for your feedback and have passed this on to the owners too.

This property is beautiful, the owners have thought of everything. We loved our stay here, a very special property to enjoy a relaxing break.

Hot tub is amazing. Do not hesitate to book, an absolute gem. Just wonderful!

We rarely stay in a property twice but loved Buttervilla Retreat and had to come back. Owners very welcoming, nothing too much trouble, particularly loved the wood burner and the outside shower for our dog, great after muddy walks.

The Cottage was nice. The best thing about it was it’s location to the rest of Cornwall.

Beautiful location, lovely views and your own special path to the local pub. Great place to stay with all the home comforts you could want for a peaceful getaway in a very pretty, unspoilt part of Cornwall.

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful location with a great pub nearby. Just loved our stay here, relaxing and fun had at the nearby Adrenalin Quarry.

The owners are lovely too and the cottage was immaculate.

Everything you need was at the property. Comfortable stay

Buttervilla Retreat is a delightful , beautfully appointed property , in a glorious location . Nigel and Mel, the hosts , were wonderful hosts, going over and beyond our expectations to make our visit as enjoyable as possible. We are looking forward to our next visit !

We loved everything about Buttervilla Retreat. We felt instantly at home and both the location and the property are excellent. It's in a quiet and beautiful location, which makes for a great night's sleep, yet the nearest beach is very close with lots of good restaurants within easy reach. The property is beautifully decorated with amazing views out across open green fields. We hope to return :)

It is a gorgeous place of the highest quality. Wonderful for a couple or small family . The owners couldn’t have been more lovely . Will definitely be returning

A wonderful cottage in a beautiful location. We had a fabulous time and hope to return. Perfect for a small family!

Beautiful barn in a beautiful place! You can see that everything has been thought of throughout. The kitchen has everything you need. Everything was just easy and nothing too much faff! We absolutely loved our stay and are already missing the amazing views! Would definitely go back if we can ever find an avaliable time!! Feeling very relaxed now. Thank you for having us :)

We all had a wonderful time, especially our 18 month old granddaughter. The cottage is of a very high standard, very clean and comfortable. Couldn’t fault anything. Will definitely return.

A really fabulous bolthole in a great area with easy reach to some fantastic walking and beaches.

We loved this cottage so did our 11 month old puppy! Location idyllic and owners very helpful and friendly, this really is a retreat, every comfort thought of.

Delightful Cornish cottage with a beautiful scenic view of countryside.

The owners have clearly poured their hearts into creating a perfect holiday retreat. Both the layout and the interior has been thoughtfully designed so that you feel at ‘home on holiday‘. So it’s also not so precious too, so that you can feel relaxed immediately you arrive. Everything is catered for including dogs. The outside shower area is brilliant for two and four legged guests. It’s perfect and Nigel and Melanie are wonderful (but very discrete hosts) for their advice on the area, home made scones and for sharing such an incredible place to relax. Truly a home away from home.

Beautifully appointed cottage with stunning views, great for getting away from it all and enjoying country living.

Perfect in every way.

Our stay at Buttervilla Retreat was fantastic. It’s well kitted out, beautifully finished and you couldn’t want anything more in a holiday cottage.

The hosts are really welcoming and friendly and were close by should you need them.

The extra touches like the local soaps, the fresh cut flowers and the home baked scones made a beautiful cottage even better and great value for money.
