The delightful Badger Cottage is in the beautiful hamlet of St Issey, close to one of Cornwall’s hottest destinations, Padstow.

Tucked behind the owner’s property, this cosy cottage is furnished and equipped to a superb standard and provides light and airy open plan accommodation including two bedrooms, an open plan living and dining area with fitted kitchen area, and a pleasant stone patio and small lawn with gorgeous views over the fields. Padstow and Wadebridge are both close by, and the buzzing seaside and surfing resort of Newquay is only a short drive. Sandy beaches, fabulous restaurants, welcoming pubs and walking trails also make this a great base for discovering this wonderful part of Cornwall.


Badger Cottage is situated in a lovely, peaceful place. The cottage is so convenient for visiting many of the lovely beaches in the area. We received a very warm welcome from the owner of the property. A great place to spend a holiday.

Still here at Easter 2016. This cottage is located in the quiet hamlet of Mellingey, 4 miles from the harbour town of Padstow. The cottage is a perfect size for a couple with young children, we have a daughter (11) and a son (5) and they were perfectly happy in the bunk beds. The cottage is well equipped for self catering with a good kitchen and large bathroom. It even has a washing machine that is very handy if you have kids like ours who insist on getting filthy at every opportunity. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. It is incredibly peaceful and relaxing, being able to watch the sheep, lambs and buzzards in the field in front of the house without any traffic noise anywhere is brilliant. Would we come again? Oh yes we have already rebooked for later this year. Fantastic!!!

We loved the area; it was central for everything and we had a lovely welcome from the owners. We will definitely return next year.

We stayed at Badger Cottage from 16-23 May 2015. We were lucky with good weather. The cottage is immaculate. The lounge /diner is well equipped,comfortable and spotlessly clean. Fresh homemade scones, jam and clotted cream had been left for us on our arrival. A nice touch. The bedrooms were very clean. The double bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. The other bedroom contained 2 bunk beds - ideal for children. There was quite a spacious bathroom with a bath and shower, a toilet and a good sized wash basin. Also in the bathroom was a washing machine in case you wanted to do some washing. Outside there is garden area with a table and 2 chairs. Up 2 stairs and there another table and 2 chairs which gives a view across the landscape. There is a rotary clothes line for any washing. The one downside was that when you left the cottage, it was difficult to see if traffic was coming in either direction, and a mirror would be very useful. Strongly recommended. Padstow only about 3 miles. There are plenty of good restaurants including Rick Stein's family restaurant in St Merryn. Very reasonable prices. Also recommend "The Journeyman" which is a short walk from Badger Cottage. This is an excellent Indian/Asian/English restaurant which holds only 18 diners. Every meal cooked from fresh by Steve. Open from 6-9pm Monday -Saturday. Booking essential.

The cottage was very close to a lot of amenities, so it only took a short time to reach any of them. The beaches we visited were excellent and very clean. There are so many places to visit and superb restaurants. We intend to stay in Badger's Cottage again.
