All three of the traditional Cornish self catering cottages at Badgers Sett were converted from barns belonging to the site's original farmhouse, which dates back to 1640. The conversions have been performed to a very high standard, providing guests with quality self catering accommodation that is modern and comfortable in a beautiful area of South East Cornwall near Liskeard. Many traditional features such as exposed stonework and vaulted ceilings with visible beamwork have been retained. The cottages are built from local granite and roof slates, with walls up to 60cm thick.

The highest village in Cornwall is Minions which is a mere 4 miles from Badgers Sett, and has a wealth of ancient archeological sites dating from the early bronze age onwards and they are really popular with walkers and hikers, these include the Hurlers, three stone circles dated at around 1500BC, a line through the centre of them brings you to Rillaton Barrow a large burial mound. Alternatively on the top of Stowes Hill, overlooking Minions, you can see the Cheesering, a natural formation of balancing stones formed during the last ice age and by thousands of years of erosion, the name derives from the shape of the stones and will become patently obvious on viewing!

The town of ancient stannary town of Liskeard is at the head of the Looe Valley and is approximately 12 miles east of Bodmin. Liskeard is one of the few remaining towns in Cornwall to still have a livestock market. It serves a number of small surrounding villages and is the gateway to Bodmin Moor. Liskeard is also the starting point of the Liskeard to Looe railway, one of the most scenic railway trips in the country and a delightful day out!

Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall's stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book.

To the east is the Tamar Valley, a stunning, quiet, picturesque region with some beautiful villages including Calstock with its impressive Viaduct dominating the village, Calstock Quay was originally used for transportation of tin as there is a deep water navigable channel at the top of the tides, although the construction of the Tamar Valley Railway in the early 20th century led to most cargo being transported by rail. Further up stream is Morwellham Quay with its fantastic open air museum, Morwellham Quay has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO, the cultural arm of the UN, and is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. Originally set up by the Benedictine Monks from Tavistock Abbey in 961 as a trading route to Plymouth via the Tamar. Tavistock is an ancient stannary and market town on the edge of Dartmoor and just across the border in Devon, it has a wealth of fine pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and tourist attractions.

Jenny.

We had a wonderful time at Thyme Cottage, the setting and grounds around were perfect, our welcome pack on arrival was a lovely unexpected surprise with home made scones served to us. It has all the facilities one requires which made our week a great experience. Beds were comfortable and the shower was excellent. The cottage was situated perfectly for us to travel to all the places we visited, Eden project and the Lost Gardens, we also managed to drive and park at Liskard and catch the buses to different places which was a bonus. We would certainly stay again.

A lovely cottage with lots of character

We stayed at the Thyme Cottage over Christmas. It was a perfect getaway. The cottage was cozy, comfortable and had a big garden at the back. It had everything we needed plus more.The owners who lived on site were very welcoming. Love the personal touches and attention to detail i.e. we had a christmas tree in the cottage to put presents under. The owners also left us a tray of goodies including chocolates and activity book for our kids. Our kids loved the room joined by a 'secret' door. Would definitely recommend this place!
