Take a short, three mile drive to Dartmoor National Park to see the rugged landscapes, traditional villages, remote tors and flowing rivers. The historic town of Tavistock is two miles away from the farm and visitors can spend a day exploring the pannier market, shops, cafés, cinema and restaurants. Further afield, the Eden Project is an hour’s drive away and is a great day out. There are also several National Trust properties nearby including Cotehele House, Buckland Abbey and Lydford Gorge, all within just five miles.  Take the opportunity to visit another county and enjoy days out in Cornwall, this barn is only a few miles from the village of Gunnislake and the Cornish border.

Retaining plenty of original features, this former barn has been lovingly decorated and furnished to create a hugely comfortable home from home. When entering the exposed stone-wall barn, there is an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a feature granite fireplace and wood-burner (first basket of logs provided) to keep guests warm. The exposed stone-walls keep the barn cool in warmer weather. The lounge area is furnished with a large sofa and is equipped with a TV and for entertainment. Passing the dining area, featuring a table and chairs perfect for any occasion, the modern kitchen is fitted out with a hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer. There is one king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room and WC.

Outside the property, a garden is provided for guests to use, enjoying great views out over the surrounding countryside. There is also a patio, garden furniture seating and a BBQ; ideal for lazy summer evenings out in the open. Parking is available for two cars next to the barn.

The cottage is really lovely and comfortable, with everything you need and more. Slept so well, enjoyed the peace (with normal farm activity) and we were able to switch off. We couldn't take full advantage of the beautiful garden due to weather but it must be wonderful. Highly recommend if you want to get away for a few nights.

No mention of it being a WORKING farm with cows being driven past within metres of the cottage with a quad bike at around 6.15 each morning. Generally not a peaceful break there. Not able to walk the farm trails as described, just told to walk the lanes round the farm because of livestock.

Badgers Brook is spacious and well equipped with lots of storage space , especially in the kitchen. The sun room is a welcome bonus. The garden is well maintained and adds to the sense of well being, lots of interesting shrubs and a well kept lawn. This was our second visit and probably not our last.
