Wonderful cottage and perfect hosts
Our family of four (two boys aged 10 and 12) stayed at Badgers' Cottage in August 2019. The cottage is delightful, with plenty of space and all the mod cons. Lots of lovely touches - fresh milk left for us along with local biscuits and fudge.
Wonderful hosts and an amazing location - we will be back!!
Quaint, Quiet and very comfortable.
We found the cottage in a very quiet location where very little traffic passes the property, which is ideal for those wanting to have a relaxing holiday. It was quaint, with little nooks and crannies where you could read your book in a different comfortable position every day. The rooms were very clean throughout with the kitchen being fully fitted with all the modern appliances.
I am 5' 7" tall and some of the low height doorways may be a problem for people that are taller but that shouldn't distract from how lovely this cottage is. Our hosts, Keith and Jenny were very welcoming and helpful and the visitors book indicates that many people return time and time again. I/we recommend this property for a quiet, relaxing holiday.
Peace and tranquillity with stunning views
We loved everything about Badgers Cottage - fabulous location, lovely hosts, cosy and comfortable accommodation with thoughtful touches that made us feel very welcome. Much effort obviously goes into making sure that guests have everything they need at the cottage. It was also perfect for our two dogs - we all had a great time!
Lovely cottage in quiet village
This is our second Christmas visit to this lovely cottage in the middle of nowhere which is perfect for a getaway from everything and everyone. Owners are very friendly on arrival and they leave you alone during your stay which we prefer, although they only live next door if you really need them. Open fire make it nice and cosy, firewood was provided, well equipped kitchen means all you need is your food shopping, amazing views across the fields, love that it's dog friendly, got to pick fresh veg from the allotment, well situated for visiting Padstow, St Austell and Tintagel as well as Bude for the Christmas day swim at the beach, all of which are about 1 hour drive. Would highly recommend for the people who like quiet, long walks and great scenery.
A warm cozy cottage with a,wonderful closed in garden that our dog adores. Views of miles of moorland and farmland in a tiny village on the edge of Bodmin moor.
If you want a peaceful holiday with plenty of walking this is especially for you. The cottage is completely self contained.
One word of warning for those that do not know the area do not go out unprepared the weather can be very unpredictable.
This was our 5th time in 6 years and we look forward to coming back to our second home next time!
Lovely Cottage in a perfect setting
Badgers Is a dream cottage, with lovely garden and beautiful views of the Cornish countryside. Lovely location with easy access to the moor's. It is the perfect getaway and we can't wait to return next year. I very highly recommend it.
There is a pub & shop 3.5 miles away at St Neot. Bodmin, with all amenities, including various large supermarkets is 7 miles away.Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwalls Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwalls highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell.North Cornwall is as famous for its rugged coastline as it is for its surfing. You can hire surf boards and equipment from Polzeath, up as far as Bude and Widemouth Bay. Boscastle is the only natural harbour for 20 miles and at low tides and certain weather conditions you can find a blowhole at the mouth of the harbour. Tintagel brings with it legends of King Arthur and the remains of Tintagel Castle can be visited on foot. Nearby Camelford is rumoured to be the Camelot of legends past, and the finding of 'Arthurs Stone' in 1998 has only fuelled these myths. On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village.Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.
