Venue Setting

Hidden up-stream from Fowey and Lostwithiel, a special piece of rural Cornwall has been farmed, nurtured and styled by the Tamblyn family for 150 years. Escape and share a uniquely preserved way of life in a relaxed rural location. Catch the sunset from the hill fort of Bury Down with panoramic views over the south coast, picnic in woodlands amongst wild orchids, enjoy a healing massage or reflexology indoors or out in a pure peaceful environment, return home healthy and refreshed.

Botelet has a small mix of eco accommodation amongst a group of historic buildings and surrounding natural landscape. A lifetime's project has preserved the old yet you will find refreshing touches of timeless modern interior design and evocative lighting, offering a unique feel deep in the countryside. Staying here gives a simple and unusual glimpse into the living history of the farm.

You can stay in informal organic bed and breakfast at the farmhouse. If you prefer your own space, Manor Cottage (self catering) just across the courtyard, is formed from the ancient remains of Botelet Manor House. Cowslip Cottage (also self catering) is a little more remote, just down the lane. Sleep close to nature in a Mongolian yurt positioned in a field on its own, raised on poles with a wood stove and breathtaking views leading out to sea. Wild flowered meadow camping offers the chance to pitch a couple tents or vans in the long grass.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Botelet is set in 300 acres of rural farmland, this is sparsely populated South East Cornwall and you are surrounded by a patchwork of ancient fields, lanes and a wet woodland, capped by the hill fort of Bury Down. The farm, its buildings and tradition have slowly evolved and many historic farm practices have been kept alive for generations. Step inside the buildings and you will find a combination of traditional architecture mixed with timeless modern design.
Design:
Botelet is steeped in history, with the Tamblyn family having lived and farmed here for the past 150 years. The farmhouse was built in 1884 and Manor Cottage is formed from the remains of the old Manor House was is listed in the Domesday book from the 11th century. The properties are peppered with historic features; from an old well that is illuminated through the kitchen floor of Manor Cottage; a four poster bed in the double room of the farmhouse that was said to have belonged to Lady Hamilton; traditional fire places and clome ovens in the cottages in farmhouse; and flag stone slate floors in the farmhouse which were laid when the property was built. 
Standout Venue Features:
Guests are welcome to step out across the fields, take in the panoramic views from the top of Bury Down hill fort or take a stroll through the decidous woodland area. Back in the farmhouse, relax and unwind with a therapeutic massage in our dedicated treatment room with our in-house therapist, Tia.
