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,

Many thanks for a fab time in Butterwell with my two kids. Amazing views and scenery on our lovely Easter break.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a lovely short break in Butterwell. Really lovely homely feel and so nice to come back to after having a day out and about. Very lucky with the weather and great waves on that beach at Lundy Bay. See you again soon.

Heather & I,

We had a fantastic stay in Butterwell, we really do not want to leave. We are already planning our return trip! We love this area and would definitely stay at Penrose again. The house was immaculate, amazing views, comfortable bed, welcome try and so warm and cosy. Many thanks!

Previous Customer,

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 E,

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 R,

Very comfortable beds!

Anne L,

Excellent property with fantastic views and friendly owners. Just be prepared for driving on narrow lanes but well worth it.

Mrs Valerie P,

The property was in an excellent location and had amazing views across the Cornish countryside. The owners were on hand and very informative/knowledgeable.

Mrs Sarah P,

An amazing weeks holiday. The cottage is amazing and you have everything you need giving that homely feel. Very clean and clear that they have lovingly restored the cottages. The Olde Inn was great for evening meals and had a great week exploring Cornwall. We will definitely be back.

Previous Customer,

We loved our stay at this cottage. Everything you need is there, and the welcome pack was lovely. The location was great too.

Hotopp Family,

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,

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,

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 T,

Thank you for sharing your little part of Cornwall - absolutely perfect. The property is beautiful & very homely. The welcome pack, very thoughtful and much appreciated. Would definitely come back again and recommend to family and friends.

Di & O,

Beautiful location, stunning view! Lovely property and owners, lovely welcome pack to arrive to. High standard throughout, a real holiday gem!

Tustain Family,

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 B,

Well done Jane & Ian, exceptional renovation to a very high standard. Very thoughtful finishing touches and excellent welcome pack.

Steve & J,

Fabulous cottage and location, wonderful hosts and a week's holiday. Hope to be back soon!

Sharon & T,


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.
