  • "Amazing stay!"

    Cannot fault it 1 bit. We really enjoyed our stay and the accommodation was fantastic even better then we expected. The hosts are amazing and we’re always a phone call away if we needed any questions answered or anything in general. Thanks for our stay

  • "Delightful, small but comfortable shepherd's hut perfect for a quiet getaway."

    All as advertised and the owners were keen to make us welcome. The wifi never worked (not a worry for us) but everything else just as we expected. A number of coastal walks and the castle accessible without the use of a car. Pubs and local shops just five minute walk away. Thoroughly recommended.

    The badgers rest is so private with it's own garden, Sarah and her husband have thought of everything to make it feel like home from home. Would highly recommend this to my friends and family and will be making a return in the future.

  • "Badgers Rest is a beautiful place to stay."

    It’s tranquil and quaint, a perfect place to relax! The hosts have thought of everything from comfy sun loungers, a bistro dining table and chairs by the wood fired hot tub stove; which are ideal for sitting on and keeping the fire going for heating the tub! The shepherds hut has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The shower is excellent and the bathroom is a good size with plenty of storage. The kitchen area has everything you need and tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits provided. The bed is very comfortable and folds up to make way for more seating during the day. There is lots of storage provided for clothes etc. This is the best shepherds hut we have stayed in! Highly recommend! 5* Ideal walking distance from Tintagel shops and pubs. Friendly, attentive hosts. Thanks for such a lovely time :)

  • "Fantastic little tiny house in a great location."

    Stunning views a short walk from the doorstep and lots of beautiful places to visit. Owners were friendly and left us to it, whilst being only a stones throw away if we needed anything. We had a wonderful time over 5 days and would visit again. Only fault would be the driveway to the property could use a little maintenance.

    Sarah made us feel so welcome and the property was exactly as described. Lovely space saving measures, plenty of storage room and everything we could have wanted. The wood fired hot tub was amazing and we spent every evening it it. Only a 10 minute walk into Tintagel which was very convenient after an evening of eating and drinking! To top it off my partner and I got engaged during our time here, it was so special and we can’t wait to come back again.

  • "Fantastic stay at Badgers Rest!"

    Comfortable bed and surprisingly spacious for a shepherds hut. Hosts were extremely helpful. All the facilities you need inside as well as a nice decking area to eat outside and a wood fired hot tub to use on the evenings. Lovely town of Tintagel a short walk down the road. Pubs, restaurants and delicious pasties (We’d recommend Pengenna) all nearby the historic/mythical remains of King Arthur’s castle. Breathtaking views from the castle and along the coastal path. Lots to do nearby: 10 minute drive to the beautiful tidal beach at Trebarwith strand (2.5 hours either side of low tide) would highly recommend biking along the camel trail from Padstow or Wadebridge, stopping off at the gorgeous Camel Valley vineyard (must book a table). A fantastic base to discover the north Cornish coast.

About the location


Camelford 5.9 miles; Wadebridge 13 miles.

Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, whose ruins dominate the cliffside just outside the village, is a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. The surrounding area is dominated by the sea, rocky coves and stunning scenery. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. Tintagel has several pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must. For the energetic, the SW Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions it winds its way along the cliffs and down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and in 2.5 miles is the beautiful village of Boscastle with its quaint quay and village pubs for refreshment. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude, with their resort attractions, while the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Padstow and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive.
