A Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Badger Cottage is a delightful cottage with all the home comforts needed. Very clean, warm and cosy. The views from the main bedroom are spectacular. You can lie in bed and see nothing but the moor in front of you, an unforgettable experience.

We were lucky to be there when the primroses were out on the lanes. England at its most beautiful, the moor and the open skies were wonderful.

Short break

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place. Well off the beaten track, but easy to reach everywhere because of its location. I stayed with my dog for a week and I didn’t have a single worry. Secure garden, surrounded by moor. She was shattered! Lovely, clean cottage and owners just next door if you need advice. Thank you.

Erholung fernab!

  • 5 of 5

Ein liebevoll eingerichtetes altes kleines cottage, in absolut ruhiger Lage. Der Essbereich ist etwas eng, aber man kommt zurecht. Wir kamen mit Hund, und dachten in Cornwall könne man überall mit dem Hund in die Natur und ihn laufen lassen. Dem ist leider nicht so, überall sind Hecken und Zäune. Aber in Warleggan gibt es fußläufig ein Moor, wo der Hund rennen kann, allerdings laufen in den Mooren dort Schafe, Rinder und Ponys frei rum. Der Hund sollte keinen Jagdtrieb haben! Es gibt viele Ausflugsziele, allerdings braucht man immer zwischen 30-60 Minuten mit dem Auto. Wer sich also fernab der üblichen Touristenziele erholen möchte, ist hier genau richtig!

Badgers cottage Warleggan

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for peace and quiet. A charming cottage with everything you need (including a washing machine!). Very conveniently located on south Bodmin Moor with plenty of walks nearby and much more within a 30 minutes drive. The coast is only 45 minutes or so from here. Keith and Jenny are lovely people and made us feel very welcome. We are hoping to get to know them much better over the coming years . . . we are definitely going back! And if you have dogs, they are very welcome here at Badgers and there are plenty of places nearby to walk them! For wildlife enthusista ther is plenty to see, although we didn't see any badgers, we know they are there!

A great place to retreat to. We already have friends who are looking to book the cottage!

Location

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.
