This property is of exceptional standard. The owners have created an absolutely beautiful holiday cottage here. This is the first time I have used Cornish Horizons. The website is really good and booking is very simple.

Mr Laurence W,

We have had a wonderful few days in a beautiful part of the country. Despite the weather not being on our side we have fit lots in and lovely to come back to the woodburner. Jane & Ian have done a fantastic job within the cottages and thought of everything including a pumpkin! Would love to come back.

Previous Customer,

We’ve had a great time staying in Butterwell. You’ve thought of everything to make this cottage feel like home. Thank you

Frederike & D,

Perfect cottage! This was our second stay at Penrose Burden and we will definitely be back! Lovely cottages in the perfect place for exploring Cornwall.

Mrs Kerri M,

A wonderful property, decorated and furnished to a high standard, in a beautiful location and ideally situated to explore this part of North Cornwall. The owners are on site and are very friendly and helpful. The entire experience, from booking with Cornish Horizons, to checking in, over-eating in Padstow, cycling the Camel Trail and lounging around on the beautiful beaches was fantastic. I would recommend this property in a heartbeat and hope to return!

Mr David C,

Beautiful house in a beautiful location. The owners were extremely warm and welcoming. Perfect location for all our needs, views from the cottage were stunning. Would definitely recommend and hopefully will return one day. 5* property

Mrs Lynne K,

I would definitely recommend Butterwell for anyone looking for peace, quiet and beautiful views in the countryside. It is in within easy reach of the coast although there are a few narrow lanes to negotiate. The owners Ian and Jane are on hand if needed, offering a quiet presence. The property is cosy, clean and tastefully furnished. A little gem!

Mrs Lynn O,

We have had a wonderful week and Butterwell has been the perfect base. Thanks for being warm and friendly hosts. We have enjoyed coming home every evening. The cottage is so comfortable, well equipped and peaceful and the boys loved playing outside. We would love to return.

The Clapham family,

Great value for money, beautiful location, very friendly owners.

Mrs Lorraine H,

From our experience I can heartily recommend Cornish Horizons, we were dealt with in an exemplary fashion by all concerned and the property we had was of a superb quality. Excellent all round!

Mr Nigel M,


If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it.  With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise.  The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations.  With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days.  More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark.  When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor? The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.
