Hidden away down a country lane in the heart of Cornwall, Bucklebury perfectly blends rustic charm and oh-so-chic, luxurious interiors, creating a homestay that's simply perfect for couples or for those seeking an idyllic escape for one. Showcasing a love of botanicals, fresh greens and soft whites run throughout the house along with underfloor heating on the ground floor. Windows and bi-fold doors give panoramic views over the glorious countryside, whilst tip-top furnishings ensure you'll be oh-so-comfy. Highlights include the swoon-worthy bedroom with floor-to-ceiling window, incredible kitchen (whether you're the chef or you hire someone to do it!) and spacious garden, complete with bubbling hot tub. Situated in a tiny hamlet setting on the edge of beautifully wild Bodmin Moor, the setting is blissfully rural with just the sound of birdsong and the odd tractor from the neighbouring farm. If you can bear to tear yourself away from Bucklebury, there's plenty to see and do, having easy access to both the south and north Cornish coast.


Just wow! This delightful space imbues complete serenity, from the natural greens and white tones throughout to the carefully considered décor. We love the plump Loaf sofa, cleverly positioned to overlook the bi-fold glass windows that open out over the garden and countryside beyond. This is a perfect place to laze away a sleepy afternoon together, letting the warm summer's breeze gently stir within. During cooler months, hunker down with the roaring wood burner and cuddle up amongst the throws and cushions and catch up on your favourite box set on the Smart TV. In addition, there's a separate occasional chair for when you want a quiet moment with a good book.


The fabulous, surprisingly spacious kitchen is just a pleasure to cook in with vaulted ceiling and countryside views. Taking the steps up from the sitting room, we love the dark green cabinets and contrasting white worktops, plus the cosy bult-in seating area, perfect for relaxing and watching the cook at work! In addition, there's a central island which provides lots of working space for the budding chef. This kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need, with an electric range-effect cooker with two ovens and separate grill, striking black retro-style fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, washing machine and all the other essentials you might need, including the all-important Nespresso coffee machine to help you wake up in the morning.

The cute dining table lies to the back of the sitting room, the perfect setting for meals à deux next to the flickering warmth of the wood burner, whilst the central kitchen island has a breakfast bar for meals on the go. There's also a table and chairs outside for meals al fresco during warmer months.


Take the stairs up to the glorious bedroom, where the floor-to-ceiling window is just breath-taking and offers stunning views across the pretty garden to the rolling Cornish countryside beyond. Swathed in sumptuous Egyptian linens, soft bedding, cushions, merino throws and White Company sheepskins, the king-sized Loaf bed is just a dream, where long lie-ins and breakfast in bed are a requisite, gazing out over that view. In addition, there's a chest of drawers and wall hanging space for clothes and a pretty bench at the end of the bed.


The en suite bathroom boasts a sumptuously deep freestanding bath for two, perfect for long soaks. On the ground floor there's a wet room, ideal for cooling down after a day's exploring. Both come complete with heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy, whilst divinely cosy robes are provided too.

Outside space

Step outside the front door the terrace area and you'll find a small table and two chairs around the corner on the lower level - this lovely spot catches the late afternoon/evening sun and is lit at night to set the mood - perfect for twilight meals alfresco. In addition, there's a stone table and seat which is set in the cutest area ever, ideal for morning coffee or a leisurely breakfast as it catches the morning sun. In addition, a bubbling hot tub awaits, perfectly positioned to enjoy the starry nights. Both of these areas are completely priviate for your own use.

Should you wish to use the lawn to the front of the property, the owners will of course respect your privacy.


There is plenty of off-road parking.


A babe-in-arms is most welcome at Bucklebury. Please bring your own baby equipment with you.


Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome at Bucklebury. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break.

Tucked away right on the edge of beautifully wild Bodmin Moor, Bucklebury benefits from being in a quieter, more secluded part of Cornwall whilst being just a short drive from both the north and south coast. The London Inn is a traditional local pub two miles walk from the property, whilst nature-lovers will adore this area, with oh-so-pretty Golitha Falls, impressive Cardinham Woods and of course the moors just a short drive away, waiting to be explored. Head south and you have a wonderful stretch of pretty, protected coast to discover, from bustling Fowey with its excellent selection of eateries all the way to spectacular Whitsand Bay. Head North and you'll find a more rugged scene, from iconic Tintagel and Boscastle down to foodie capital Padstow and the impressive Camel Estuary - the choice is endless!

Tucked away in the Cornish countryside, this delightful retreat offers a tranquil escape away from it all, with gorgeous interiors, unspoilt views, and a perfect position for exploring both coastlines - ideal!

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Bucklebury:

Gorgeous cottage. We very much enjoyed our stay, the owners were helpful if needed but also gave us complete privacy. I would definitely recommend a stay here for a quiet get away

The most idyllic and tranquil cottage for two. Every little thing thought of and executed perfectly, fresh flowers and thoughtful welcome hamper (human and dog!) and the most beautiful view from every window.

Beautiful location - truly breathtaking. Mark and Penny are lovely, very helpful and provided many useful tips and maps for the area. There are some beautiful walks on the doorstep and the local pub is excellent. Log burner is awesome, kitchen works well, other amenities are all very good. Roll top bath is a luxury after a long walk!

Beautiful property with a lovely view. My partner and I got engaged by the big window in the bedroom and it was just perfect.

Bucklebury is an amazing place to stay, nestled in the beautiful Cornwall countryside with fantastic views. It was lovely to get away and enjoy the peace & quiet of the countryside. The house was well appointed and we had everything we needed as well as a lovely hamper of goods when we arrived. The hosts were very welcoming and were only a phone call away, if needed.

Stunning accommodation, facilities and views. Outstanding attention to detail. Every detail has been thought through very carefully. Wouldn’t change a thing, indeed has given us inspiration for our own property. Penny & Mark exceptional hosts nothing too much trouble

What an amazing holiday! The cottage has been designed with couples in mind, perfect for exploring the local area and relaxing after a long day.

It’s super dog friendly with a secure garden and throws for the soft furnishings.

We would highly recommend this location and would love to visit again!

Totally amazing. Relaxing with stunning views. Definitely exceeded our expectations.

Mark absolutely superb , made a fantastic butler for weekend ??

Perfect! We felt so relaxed. We stayed here for my 30th Birthday treat. Penny and Mark were lovely, we text them to ask if it was ok if my Brother and Sister-in-law stopped by on their way home from Cornwall for Dinner. They were lovely, they even offered to bring extra chairs to dine and extra towels for the hot tub. We didn't need these however it was lovely to know they would go the extra mile for us. The interior was beautiful and the property had a whole sense of peace. We choose to watch films in the evenings with the smart TV and Netflix provided. Breakfast on the stone table and chairs in the morning was perfect. The shower was lovely and the bath was so relaxing. Waking up each morning with the beautiful views of the countryside was very special.

Fantastic property in a very peaceful location with stunning views. Beautiful decor and very well equipped - everything you need, and the hamper of Cornish produce was a surprise bonus! We would definitely recommend and will be returning.

The best staycation we have ever visited. The location is superb for those looking for peace and quiet. The interior is out of this world!! We will 100% be booking again and that's for sure!!! Thank you again for the wonderful memories - Mel and Mike

This is a beautiful house in a perfect location for a honeymoon. We loved everything about this house & would 100% recommend!

This was an absolutely beautiful retreat. It was extremely clean, designed to a very high standard and felt extremely luxurious! The hot tub and bbq were a great extra and the view was spectacular. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a romantic and luxury retreat - it was perfect for our mini-moon! The welcome hamper was a really lovely touch, along with the doggy treats!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect. The only slight downside is the very intricate farm lanes which need to be traversed to get there. But the upside of that is that it's wonderfully quiet (there's certainly no passing traffic!). And the setting is absolutely idyllic

Fabulous place, a real retreat, very peaceful. We walked up to Berry Down each morning and loved the hot tub with a view on our return while the dog slept. Beautiful interior decoration. Spacious and private. We drove out to Fowey in the South, Rock in the North and the beautiful village of Lerryn. Great walks, we used the dog walk book left for us for two of them, great pubs, and a lovely welcome basket, both for us and the dog. Many thanks

The location is tucked away and well off the beaten track so the views of the surrounding countryside are stunning. The gardens are completely enclosed meaning that we could relax knowing our dogs were totally safe. The owners really had thought of everything and left us a gorgeous goody box and even thought of the dogs too. We would definitely come back.

A lovely spot in Cornwall.
