What a wonderful place to stay. I cant think of anything I would change. What more can I say. The icing on the cake was the unexpected visits from the wonderful sheep dog, Floss.

The cottage is really lovely and comfortable, with everything you need and more. Slept so well, enjoyed the peace (with normal farm activity) and we were able to switch off. We couldn't take full advantage of the beautiful garden due to weather but it must be wonderful. Highly recommend if you want to get away for a few nights.

The cottage is in a lovely setting overlooking across fields. Pity the weather was so wet. I am sure in the summer it would be lovely sitting in the garden.

No mention of it being a WORKING farm with cows being driven past within metres of the cottage with a quad bike at around 6.15 each morning. Generally not a peaceful break there. Not able to walk the farm trails as described, just told to walk the lanes round the farm because of livestock.

Badgers Brook is spacious and well equipped with lots of storage space , especially in the kitchen. The sun room is a welcome bonus. The garden is well maintained and adds to the sense of well being, lots of interesting shrubs and a well kept lawn. This was our second visit and probably not our last.

The cottage is lovely and very well equipped. The location is wonderful and the scenery is stunning. The private garden is well maintained and is a great place to sit and watch the working farm. The owners were very helpful and on hand if needed. The location is ideal for visiting Devon and Cornwall. Will definitely return.
