A traditional Cornish winding lane leads to the secluded but accessible setting for Badgers’ Hollow. Set in the grounds of an old Watermill, Badgers’ Hollow is a private barn with its own drive and parking. From the gravelled parking area, limestone steps lead up to a large terrace with garden furniture and stunning views over Fowey and the rolling countryside towards the sea.
Badgers’ Hollow has been converted from the old cider barns of the mill and is open plan and spacious in design. The sleeping area has super kingsize or twin beds and has a natural, organic feel. Guests can sleep ‘green’ and comfortable in the knowledge that the teak furniture is FSC accredited from sustainable sources and the walls are either finished in natural lime render or 100% natural based paints and lambs wool cocoons the natural oak clad exterior walls. There is a balcony leading from the bedroom which overlooks the millpond and orchard, which catches the evening summer sun, allowing guests to maybe enjoy a Cornish Camel Valley wine whilst observing the buzzard hunting for mice in the orchard, the entertaining antics of the ducks or moorhens on the mill pond.
The sitting area opens onto the terrace and has a modern wood burning stove for the cooler evenings. There is internet, satellite LCD TV, Bose iPlayer docking/sound station and complementary Netflix and IPlayer. The kitchen is fully equipped with Neff appliances including a fridge/freezer, microwave, washer, dishwasher and Gaggia bean to cup coffee machine.
The luxury spa bathroom has a grand elegant feel with beamed high ceiling, stunning walk in wet room style shower and sunken Jacuzzi spa bath and even a hidden TV with waterproof remote control! The Fluffy bathrobes and towels, warmed limestone flooring, aromatherapy oils and Soya candles make bathing an organic luxurious experience.
To balance our negative environmental impact, Badgers is powered by 100% renewable energy, solar panels heat the water and the under floor heating comes from a ground source heat pump. Any back up power is provided by green electricity. There is a rainwater harvesting system for the toilets and washer.
This barn is available on a nightly basis for self-catering with a discount for 7 night stays, and please note pets are not permitted in this barn.
