Lower Buttervilla is a beautiful and contemporary, detached holiday home. Transformed from two former farm cottages, lots of original features remain, including two fireplaces - one an inglenook revealing an ancient bread oven and the other fitted with a wood burning stove. The kitchen has a Rayburn for cooking as well as a combination microwave/oven/grill. Glazed doors lead from the lounge/diner to a large enclosed courtyard garden, whilst there is a secluded decked patio at the rear of the cottage. On the first floor, the three bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom, are bright and stylish. Lower Buttervilla is in the small Cornish village of Polbathic which is close to the Devon-Cornwall border. Nearby is Port Eliot, an impressive stately home which dates back to the 3rd century; both the house and beautiful gardens are open to the public.

St Germans is on the River Tiddy, part of the Lynher estuary near Plymouth. The village has a Norman church. Port Eliot, a Grade I listed stately home with its garden, is open to the public and hosts a literary festival. There is a view of the Lynher estuary over which arches the huge Brunel viaduct. St Germans has a shop and a pub with a restaurant. Half an hour away are Looe and Polperro. Plymouth is also half an hour away across the Tamar Bridge and hass the National Marine Aquarium, Barbican quay area, theatres, Drake Circus shopping centre and walks along the Hoe. St Germans is an ideal destination with access to attractions.
Cornwall is a region full of history, culture and unique identity. So unique in fact that Cornwall has its very own language (Kernowek), flag (St Piran's Banner) and national anthem (Trelawney). In 2014 the UK government officially recognised the fine people of Cornwall as a national minority group, meaning that Cornish heritage and traditions now join the Irish, Scottish and Welsh as a protected Celtic group.
Cornwall is proudly known as the stunning setting of the popular BBC television series 'Poldark', starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Cornwall is also proud of its famous Cornish Pasty, but has another pastry dish to offer you, the Stargazy Pie! If you don't mind a few pilchards looking at you whilst you eat, then the Stargazy Pie is the pie for you. After a pasty or a pie, or both, you might fancy a pint and Cornwall has a great choice of locally produced beers to satisfy your thirst. Try an ale from the St Austell Brewery, Skinner's Brewery or the Rebel Brewing Company to name but a few of the fine ale producers in the region. Please remember to always drink responsibly.
Here are just a couple of the great Cornish attractions you could visit:
We hope you enjoy your break in Cornwall!
