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.

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.

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.

This property was exactly as advertised. The location is great, the internal and external facilities well above expectations. The Edwards family are good hosts, helpful and dealt with minor issues effectively. The fact that this is a working farm just adds to the local colour. We were very fascinated by sheep picking .
