Local Area

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.


Loved our recent stay in Butterwell. The wonderful mix of luxury with homely touches made it so that we didn’t want to leave. The cottages are a perfect base from which to explore the magic of Cornwall. Thank you Ian & Jane for thinking of everything- we shall be back!Jane Edwards - 15th November 2018
Lovely cottage. The little extras were also a nice surprise. Many thanks to Jane and family for making our stay so comfortable. Coming back in the evening to a nice warm cottage was much appreciated, and the log burner a great addition to the cosy atmosphere. Miss Sandra Roscilli - 5th November 2018
Very comfortable beds!Mrs Anne Lucas - 26th September 2018

Thank you to Ian and Jane for a fantastic stay! The cottage is wonderful and finished to a very high standard. Excellent location for exploring North Cornwall. Will definitely be coming back!Reeve Family - 11th August 2018
We have absolutely loved every second of our stay at this beautiful cottage. Ian and Jane have done a stunning job converting these cottages into the most fantastically equipped self catering locations we have ever stayed in. Everything you could possibly need has been provided. Stunning views and a peaceful location and incredibly helpful owners! The Adam's Family - 4th August 2018
The Cornish Horizon team dealt with all my queries promptly and professionally, calling me back where necessary. Whether it was via the phone or with the staff in the Padstow office all the staff were friendly and very helpful. The Butterwell accomodation at Penrose Burden was absolutely beautiful, as this is newly refurbished for 2018 we were very impressed. The owners made us feel very welcome, beautiful welcome pack on arrival, extremely high standard of accomodation and furnishings throughout the property, plenty of little extras that make for a very comfortable and cosy stay, a real must for the perfect holiday location in Cornwall. Perfect setting for either an individual booking or as there are several properties on the one site, perfect for larger bookings, having your own accomodation, but with such a beautiful shared open space. Will definitely book again and cant recommend highly enough, fabulous!Mrs Diane Tales - 24th July 2018

Newly renovated to a very high standard, and sympathetically finished to be in keeping with the period. exceptional attention to detail - very thoughtful ‘extras’ in the Welcome Pack. Highly recommended - ideal for anyone with mobility issues as accommodation all on one level, ample parking on hard standing so ideal for wheelchair users. Cottage was one of 4 in this location, all recently renovated by the owners but all very private. Owners were very welcoming and personable. Mrs Johanna Banthorpe - 9th July 2018
