Sun, Sea and Badgers ......

Beautiful Lawns .....

As mentioned in my last post, we visited the Royal Cornwall Show this Year and true to type 'him that does' made a beeline for the Sit on Lawnmower stands, as we were looking to replace our current one for our 1.5 acre gardens, enabling the lawns to look beautifully manicured for our guests to use  when seated in the garden on benches or swinging seats provided and relaxing over a glass or two of something chilled !   The Badgers Sett garden is family friendly with outside games such as Swing ball, Croquet and Badminton provided for our little guests (and adults) to enjoy.  One recent addition is a waste bin for dog poop bags, this is located to the side of the farm gate near the entrance to the garden and has been installed for our guests bringing their family dog on holiday with them to dispose of poop bags with ease. 


Updates Continue !

We have both been busy as ever with making additional improvements to our lovely cottages.  One simple and effective brainwave from Him that Does was to remove a lower section of the bannister in Lavender, making the lounge and kitchen diner on the ground floor instantly 'flow' more effectively, it looks more spacious and stylish too !   Guests can now walk from the back of the lounge straight into the kitchen/diner area, returning to the front entrance lobby without the obstacle of a bulky bannister rail preventing them from doing so !

Gorgeous Funky Fridges

The cottage kitchens have benefited from many new additions such as Nespresso coffee machines and most of the appliances have now been replaced with newer, brighter versions.  A recent addition to all of the cottages are the bright and funky fridges with their own separate freezer compartments.  Thyme has the cream, Lavender has Dark Blue and Rosemary the Red, you get the picture .... each cottage generally now has appliances in keeping with their namesakes, creating a modern twist with occasional pops of colour, complementing their pretty and characterful interiors for our Guests to enjoy whilst staying at Badgers Sett Holiday Cottages.


Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer ....

I wish !  We have however occasionally managed to escape from working on the cottages to the gorgeous sandy beaches nearby, just a short drive away from Badgers Sett Holiday Cottages.  We are very fortunate to be located in a  central location, enabling our guests to reach the Cornish Coastline with ease.  One of our favourites is in Polzeath as it caters for the whole family with its wide soft sandy beach with plenty of ice cream vans in situ to keep the kids happy, cafes and restaurants nearby - some with outside patios giving stunning views of the sea, public loos and some rather natty little shops to investiate should you feel the need to leave your sun bed for a while !  Daymar Bay is just up the road from Polzeath and is Dog Friendly at all times, just perfect if you have a family pooch to consider too !


Introducing 'Billy'

We have a new addition to the Badgers Sett Family in the form of a young mascot a Badger called 'Billy', who is looking forward to welcoming and becoming a friend to our little guests during their stay here on holiday with their families at Badgers Sett Holiday Cottages.  He very excited and hoping they will invite him to join them  on some of their outings here in Cornwall.  Billy has started his own blog on the Badgers Sett Website, where he will enjoy telling other little peeps about his recent adventures.
