“Our 3rd stay in Kingfisher Cabin”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

We have just returned home from our 3rd stay in Kingfisher Cabin - we love it !
The weather was very kind to us so we had a very relaxing week just chilling out on the decking - the only sounds were the birds and sheep - occasionally interrupted by the opening of another bottle of beer !
As it is so comfortable we never feel the need to venture far - we walked over to the Camel Vineyard and enjoyed a glass of wine whilst admiring the view back over to Butterwell. We also walked along the Camel Trail to the closest pub - The Borough Arms where they do a good pint.
Thanks to Sam and Rachel for making our stay so enjoyable. Also thank you to Rick for our many discussions on fishing tactics - 3 brown trout caught !
Already looking forward to our next visit!

“Pet-Friendly Peaceful Cabin”
Reviewed March 28, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We stayed for a week in the Kingfisher Cabin at Butterwell Farm. This was well appointed with a smart fitted kitchen, a bathroom including shower with a heated floor and one bedroom with a super king size bed. The cabin also has WiFi, a television and a log burner in addition to the radiators. There are enclosed grounds and a hose to wash down mucky puppies.

The situation of the farm is ideal. It sits above the Camel River, which be reached with 2 minutes walk. Ten minutes will take you to the Camel Trail, which is an easy 8 miles walk to Wadebridge and a total of 16 miles Padstow. This is a level trail with a tarmac surface that can be enjoyed with your dog, on a bike or even on horseback. There are no camels!

The coastal towns of Rock and Padstow are located within 20 mins drive offering scenic walks and excellent food. Bodmin is a short drive from the cottage and has supermarkets and garages in case you need to shop.

We had a splendid 50th birthday stay. Everyone including our dogs enjoyed the cabin, the grounds, the walks, the food, the scenery and the wildlife. If I was picky then the narrow Cornish roads might be a challenge for the anxious driver. Of course, that comes with the territory.

Thank you Rachel & Sam. The best that I can say is that we hope to return maybe later this year. It doesn’t get better than that.

“perfect for an-away-from-it-all break”
Reviewed September 11, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Kingfisher Cabin is set in a stunning location on the side of a valley - with a river running through it. It is wonderfully peaceful and secluded.
The cabin is fitted out with all that one could wish for in the way of furnishing. storage and cooking facilities. The owners have provided everything that you need in the way of everyday items - dishwasher tablets, hand soap,etc etc. Only towels are not provided.
We have stayed in many holiday rental cottages, and can honestly say that Kingfisher is up there amongst the very best.
