Amazing gem and actual real life badgers!
Badgers Holt is an absolute gem. Anne and Graham were so warm and welcoming. They even provided a cream tea, local milk and their own eggs. The property itself is lovely and bright, warm and spacious, with a private back garden which is a suntrap and lovely on warm evenings. The front overlooks the drive and the lawn where the badgers appeared every night for us. We saw them singly and in pairs not in a bigger group but it's that time of year and they were so wonderful to watch. We also saw a cheeky fox. For anyone who has any interest in Badgers, or just some peace and quiet this is the property for you! The location is so peaceful and quiet but it's easy to get into Redruth and beyond. We are so glad we found you, we will be back! The only tip I'd give is to make sure you follow Anne's instructions, and go up the drive marked private road opposite Wheal Buller Riding Stables , not the one our sat nav/google maps sent us on!

Excellent Stay In Cornwall
Badger's Holt is a wonderful place for a holiday. Anne and Graham have created an oasis that is calm and peaceful but close to all of the beaches and attractions that Cornwall has to offer. It was a thrill watching the badgers in the evening. I would highly recommend staying here.

Perfect in every way.
So nice to come back to Badgers Holt after 2 years enforced absence due to covid. Excellent accommodation provided by Anne and Graham. Everything you could need included. The complimentary duck eggs were so enjoyed, also the famous Cornish cream tea. The location, peace, and tranquility has helped to heal the wounds of the last 2 years. Anne and Graham are the most perfect hosts. Being available if needed for local information and recommendations or advice yet also having the ability to melt into the background. Accompanied by my sister and brother in law on this break and they were so impressed that they are already discussing dates for a return next year. Of course the real stars of the show are the beautiful badgers that come every evening to partake the peanuts and eggs put out by Anne. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Irene, Pat and Stuart. Derby

Perfect for exploring Cornwall
Badgers Halt is a delightful place to stay. A modern spacious clean holiday home with a lovely garden space. The hosts Anne & Graham were so nice and nothing was to much trouble for them. The cream tea awaiting us on our arrival was delicious & seeing Badgers just outside the window playing on the lawn was so amazing. This was like home from home absolutely perfect would definitely visit again & would recommend Badgers Halt 100% to anyone looking for a place to stay in cornwall. So glad we found it & thoroughly enjoyed our stay there thank you so much Anne & Graham

Absolutely fabulous week
We spent a week at Badgers Holt and couldn't have wished for more. The cottage has everything you need for a truly enjoyable stay in a very peaceful location. The beds are very comfortable and there is a good powerful shower. The large back garden is completely private, ideal for BBQs or simply relaxing on the sun loungers. The location is great, you can reach many beautiful beaches and coves within 20 minutes. We visited two local farm shops for delicious meat and fresh fish. There are plenty of local attractions to visit. The Eden Project was a birthday treat and well worth the money. Anne and Graham were very welcoming and helpful hosts as and when we needed The badgers are amazing and visited us every night on the front lawn. Thoroughly enjoyed our week; thank you so much Anne and Graham for allowing us to spend time at Badgers Holt we will definitely recommend.

A wonderful week away
My partner and I had a week away at Badgers Holt for my 23rd birthday. As you first approach Buller Farm there is a beautiful panoramic view of the sea. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Anne & Graham, and inside the apartment we had fresh eggs, milk and a cream tea waiting for us. The apartment is nicely decorated, well equipped with everything you need and most importantly in the perfect spot to see the badgers! We were lucky enough to see the badgers in the front garden each evening, along with the birds and bunnies. They are very entertaining to watch, especially when one badger grabs an egg and runs away with it. We had a lovely week at Badgers Holt and it was great to be in a central location too - less than 40 mins away from The Lizard/Kynance Cove, Newquay and Falmouth. Anne & Graham are wonderful hosts and really care about their guests. Thank you both again.

Fabulous half term break
Stayed for first week of October half term. Everything was spotlessly clean and COVID safe. Hosts very welcoming and friendly. Everything we needed for a peaceful base and not far to travel and explore. The badgers across the lawn came on a nightly basis to forage for food and the birds had a great time eating the goodies, the owners out out fir them. Just so lovely to watch. Will definitely be back. Thank you Mark & Julie.

Perfect in every way
An absolutely beautiful cottage with everything you need. Cleanliness is excellent and obviously well organised. Very comfortable and warm. Loved watching the variety of birds during the day and was great seeing the badgers and the fox in the late evening. A great spot for visiting some of the main towns - we used the train from Redruth and had some great days out. Thank you so much for the warm welcome.
