Wonderful start to our holiday arriving a day early due to lockdown looming. The cottage is lovely, sparkling clean and has everything we could need. We've had a lovely holiday made all the better by an engagement by the fire! We will be back.

J and D,

Great start with a lovely cream tea. Beautiful cottage, everything you need and sparkling clean. Great location - peaceful but close to lots of places! Mainly explored the coastline so need to come back to explore inland, Great food @The Old Inn - again didn't visit it often enough! Would love to come back and explore more very soon! Just excellent !

Previous Customer,

Lovely cottage well equipped with everything needed. Peaceful setting and had a wonderful week with my parents. Fully recommend The Old Inn at St Breward, chips are to die for we ate there every night.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a lovely stay we have had a wonderful week. The cottage is beautiful, a lovely place to come back to after a busy day out. It is so peaceful here so we have enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week away, just what we all needed. We really don't want to go home. Thank you

Previous Customer,

We've has a lovely two weeks staying here. The weather has been good so have spent a lot of time outdoors walking. We particularly enjoy the stunning coastal walks. Although we came last year we have managed to visit lots of different places with more still to do. Thank you Jane and Ian for a wonderful stay.

Previous Customer,

We booked this cottage when the reopening dates were released so we could visit family nearby ad keep social distance. What a lovely cottage so well equipped and cosy. We will come again.

S and A,

We've has a great week staying in Butterwell, made even more special with the wonderful sunny weather we had. Jane and Ian have been fab hosts. The cottage is very well equipped and in the most amazing location with such beautiful views. We'll miss the gentle 'baa's' of the sheep, the lovely starry skies and of course Dillon the black lab who showed up without fail every dinner time! Thank you for a wonderful stay and see you again.

Barron family,

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,


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.
