Beautiful spacious barn conversion in idyllic countryside. I loved every minute we spent here. The owners were lovely and very welcoming even when my toddler wanted to "help" muck out the stable!
The family's pet pigs and dogs are very friendly and really added to our enjoyment.
Lovely welcome basket on arrival and well equipped property. Perfect for countryside getaway, can't wait to return.
Amazing cottage with fantastic views and walks! Everything was Immaculate and the special little touches like fresh flowers and scones were first class! Love to go back again!
Would recommend 100% and would stay again. Brilliant location. Clean, tidy. Modern with little touches that made the stay all round luxury for my self and four friends.
We stayed here over a long weekend while attending a family wedding a few miles away - a party of 7 adults. It was hard to believe that only 3 miles away from the A303, one of the busiest A roads in the west country, you could find such peace and tranquility. It was like another, gentler world - tiny lanes suddenly revealing amazing views. Stepping outside early in the morning all you could feel in the autumn air that you were a thousand feet up but all you could hear was the breeze in the trees and distant farm animals in the fields.
The stone and timber cottage is surprisingly big. Entering via a glazed porch you enter a very large kitchen/living room with large comfy settee and several arm chairs plus large dining table that seats 8 comfortably. Double glazed doors at one end open up into a double height second reception with stunning views down the valley while at the other end is a large utility/shower room and a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Upstairs there are two more very large doubles at either end of a corridor plus a family shower room and a single bedroom. The upstairs doubles are both kingsize. All the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms and kitchen were well equipped. The owners communicated promptly and were happy to lay on basic provisions for our arrival. Everything was very clean, there were logs and firelighters in the basket by the woodburner and a small hamper with local cheddar cheese, crackers and a bottle of wine on the table.
This was quite the best equipped and most comfortable holiday cottage we have seen in a long time. if you are looking for a quiet rural retreat in an area of outstanding beauty then this must be hard to beat.

We have spent a truly fantastic couple of days staying at Butterlaw Cottage and are already trying to work out when we can return.
Butterlaw is 5*. Sophie and Andrew have decorated the cottage beautifully to a high standard whilst maintaining a family friendly environment. We were so impressed with their level of detail, especially the extra touches with the stair gates, high chair and toys which was perfect to keep my one year old nephew safe and entertained.
We all enjoyed meeting the animals who were all incredibly friendly. The table tennis kept the menfolk entertained and the views from the cottage were beautiful.
The pictures and description of Butterlaw don't do justice to the warm, inviting and amazing experience that you'll have staying there.
Sophie and Andrew were the perfect hosts; friendly and available to talk with whilst letting us enjoy our privacy.
We would give a 10* rating if we could and highly recommend staying at Butterlaw.
