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!
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.
We have just returned from our second stay this year in Kingfisher Cabin and have already booked for next year - surely that tells you how good it is !!
The location and views are wonderful - it is totally peaceful - the only sounds are the birds and the river.
The cabin is gorgeous and extremely well furnished and equipped. The huge bed is so comfy !
Sam and Rachel are always friendly and helpful - they are very keen to ensure that your stay is perfect in every way.
We are already looking forward to our next visit !
Gorgeous cabin- perfection in every way. We loved our recent stay and our two dogs were very happy too. Recommend this little piece of heaven to anyone! We will be back as soon as we can too.
The setting of the cabin is great with lovely views over the river and countryside, the cabin is fitted out to a very high standard and you want for nothing.
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.
Beautiful cabin in quiet idyllic spot. Roomy yet cosy. All mod cons and very well equipped. View is incredible!!
