Why Neil and Julie Thomas chose Saint Neot

All three of our holiday cottages have achieved a' 4 star rating with Gold Award' rating from Visit England. We live on site enabling us to provide a personal touch and are generally available to help you make the most of your holiday.

The cottages and owner's house have been carefully converted from the barns of the former West Draynes Farm. The farm and manor of Draynes date back over 1000 years and the original barns are thought to have been built around 1700. The conversions have retained many of the unique stone features and exposed beams, whilst incorporating modern comforts such as full central heating throughout. Thyme cottage has recently had a Wood Burning Stove installed, making it a great option for a cosy and peaceful break away from it all throughout the Seasons.

What makes this cottage unique

Badgers Sett Holiday Cottages is located within a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' which has been awarded a 'Dark Sky Accreditation'. We are located in the hamlet of Draynes in the River Fowey valley, on the southern slopes of Bodmin Moor, South East Cornwall. This beautiful location is within easy reach of the main A30 and A38 trunk roads, making it a fantastic location from which to explore Cornwall. The South Coast and the picturesque fishing port of Looe are only a few miles away. The stunning coastal path can be accessed at many points around Looe and Polperro, or along the north coast near Padstow, Port Isaac or Boscastle. Many visitors like to visit the iconic Lands End which can be combined in the same trip to other prominent places in the far west such as St Michael's Mount. Beautiful sandy beaches are just a short drive away. Locally there are many walks in moorland and river valley locations. Several local pubs are within a short drive offering a good standard of traditional pub food. There is also a great selection of restaurants in the surrounding towns and villages.
