About Linda Hilsdon

We are a family who live at Butterbee House and have two holiday lets on site, The Beehive and The Chrysalis. We also have a sea front apartment in the surfing capital of Newquay - see listing 6809335 Lusty Glaze

Linda Hilsdon purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Linda Hilsdon chose Callington

Butterbee House is centrally located between the rugged north Cornwall coast and the south coast. Devon and its many attractions are within close proximity, as are the fabulous Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. We are in a peaceful position with great views surrounded by fields, yet within walking distance of amenities, pubs and restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

There is plenty of off-road parking, a private secluded garden with fire pit and BBQ. As we live close by, we are available should you have any queries or require tourist information.

Comfortable and warm

  • 5 of 5

Communication with Linda the owner was great. Accommodation was suitable for our needs with location and kitchen-laundry facilities. Shower was very nice. Quiet location with beautiful view. We stayed in November but would love to be there in summer and sit on the terrace. Thanks Linda for a great stay

Exceeded expectations in all areas - gorgeous interior and rolling hills perfect for walking my dogs. Customer service was impeccable, and the entire place was immaculate. Lots to do in the area. I would definitely recommend this beautiful property!

Perfect relaxing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Whilst visiting relatives close by we found this little gem. Clean, modern, cosy (not small), private and relaxing. Everything was ready and waiting for us and although we knew the owners were in the main house they left us to our holiday. Love this chrysalis and will definatley be staying here again. Even had fresh milk in the fridge on our arrival. Everything in the apartment we could need. Thank you!!

Just perfect!

The Chrysalis is a perfect place to stay. A very complete accommodation and a perfect starting point to explore the surrounding area. We liked the welcome letter and really enjoyed our stay.
