Just a 25-minute drive from Buttewell Farm is one of Cornwall’s most exciting attractions – massive Biomes house the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants, exhibitions and stories. With restaurants and a year-round family events programme it is a fantastic day out in Cornwall.
Fantastic for walking and cycling, we are situated directly on the Camel Trail with our own private gate for access. The Camel Trail is an 18-mile, surfaced and virtually level trail, which provides access to the beautiful Cornish countryside along a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow.
Within a 20-25 minute drive from Butterwell are some of Cornwall’s premier surf beaches such as Watergate Bay, Fistral Newquay, Constantine and Mawgan Porth to name a few. Hire a board locally or bring your own and book a lesson to get started!
Located only across the valley from Butterwell (20 minute walk) is the award-winning, world-class Camel Valley Vineyards where you can join their weekly wine tour and tasting for a lovely afternoon enjoying views back across to Butterwell.
Accessible directly from Butterwell are Cornwall’s relatively undiscovered and superb mountain bike trails, suitable for all abilities including some very challenging down-hill, including Grogley Woods, Cardinham Woods, Hustyns Woods and Bishops Woods.
Less than 10 minutes from Butterwell Farm is a beautiful family estate with 50 acres of formal garden and woodlands, cafe, shop and house tours. For people interested in history, nature and gardens. A tranquil place which is dog and family friendly.
St Ives is a charming harbour town location in itself to visit – combine this with these two fantastic museums available on a multi-ticket purchase.
