Formerly two farm cottages, Lower Buttervilla has been transformed into one beautiful and contemporary, detached holiday home.
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.
Patio doors lead from the elegant lounge/diner to a large enclosed courtyard garden where guests can enjoy a BBQ, whilst a secluded decked patio at the rear of the cottage is ideal for relaxing in the sunshine.
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.
Close to the Devon-Cornwall border, Polbathic is within the parish of St Germans which is home to Port Eliot, an impressive stately home which dates back to the 3rd century; both the house and beautiful gardens are open to the public.
The village is conveniently located for easy exploration of both counties, both inland and around the spectacular coastline.

About the location
Saltash 8 miles; Torpoint 9 miles; Looe 9 miles.
The village of St Germans is on the River Tiddy, part of the beautiful Lynher estuary which flows into the sea near Plymouth. The Cornish village has a magnificent Norman church, one of the largest in the county, with a superb Burne-Jones stained glass window. Port Eliot, one of the most enchanting and hidden Grade I listed stately homes with fabulous garden, is open to the public regularly and also holds an annual summer literary festival. There is a wonderful view of the Lynher estuary over which arches the huge Brunel viaduct, a masterpiece of engineering. St Germans has a village shop, excellent pub with a high quality restaurant, and only half an hour‘s drive from the pretty coastal villages of Looe and Polperro, each having a harbour surrounded by whitewashed fishermen’s cottages and narrow streets with interesting shops. Plymouth, the vibrant waterfront city, is half an hour’s drive away across the Tamar Bridge and offers the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican quay area, theatres, Drake Circus shopping centre and walks along the Hoe. St Germans is an ideal Cornish village destination with easy access to coastal attractions.
