  • "We would highly recommend Badger Cottage for a holiday in Cornwall, it is set in a very peaceful farm location with countryside all around."

    The host Sarah met us on arrival and showed us into the property and offered lots of local advice on places to eat and visit. The property was really well equipped with everything. A 5 Star holiday location.

    Thank you very much, we are glad you enjoyed your stay in badger Cottage. Property Owner

  • "I didn't actually book it via Sykes in the first place, it was Owners Direct originally."

    All very good though... Badger Cottage at Mudgeon Vean is a great place to stay. Ideal for families with little children it is a farm with a proper playground with swings and adventure climbing frame, there are animals (Chickens, Ducks & Rabbits) and acres of space to play in. There is a nature trail and also a games room with all sorts of toys and a full-sized ping pong table should the weather turn wet. The cottage itself is a well appointed two bedroom, one double one full-sized bunk bed and shower room upstairs with a large open plan living room reception room. The reception room features two sofas (one is a sofa-bed) and an easy chair with Flat-screen TV, DVD player and iPhone charger/Speaker leading on to the kitchen dining room. The kitchen has a fitted suite with modern appliances (fan oven, dishwasher, ceramic hob, washing machine and fridge freezer). Outside there is a private garden with a picnic table and a granite built barbeque. The only downside of this property is it is a long way from the nearest village shop down twisty Cornish lanes so a car is essential. It is a great base to strike out from and very well set up for families. The owners Sarah and Jem couldn't be friendlier and went out of their way to help us and made our stay a real treat. 10/10

The property

Two miles from Mawgan, and two from Manaccan, above the Helford River, is Badger Cottage.

Grade II listed Badger Cottage, is attached to the farmhouse and dates back to the 18th century.

Inside is comfortable and welcoming, with beamed ceilings, squishy sofas and wood burner in the sitting room.

The kitchen is a good size and incorporates a farmhouse style table and chairs for everyone to gather around.

Stairs lead to two bedrooms: a pretty double and a room with adult sized bunks.

They share a shower room.

As well as its own enclosed garden, guests can enjoy the owners fifty-five acres of fields and woodland with panoramic countryside views and woodland trails.

Children will love the outdoor play space, swings, football goals, climbing frames and sandpit, and the friendly owners will be happy to introduce you to their ducks and hens.

For those not so sunny days, there is table tennis, a pool table, and games/toys, inside a large games cabin to keep everyone entertained.

If you can bear to tear yourself away from the onsite entertainments, the village of Mawgan-in-Meneage is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Mawgan Creek, which leads to the Helford River.

From here it is a tranquil walk to National Trust Tremayne Quay, whilst the Seal sanctuary, and Flambards theme park both make for excellent family days out.

The beaches at Gunwalloe, Church Cove, and Poldhu are all within 5 miles for a more relaxed turn of pace.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
