Gorgeous boutique 2 bedroom cornish cottage in a stunning location, with views of the mythical Trencrom Hill. Remote and private and yet only a ten minute drive from the beach and the bright lights of St Ives.

This 16th Century wink (an illegal drinking house frequented by smugglers & pirates) has been beautifully modernised, not losing the cottage charm but providing light and airy rooms & contemporary bathrooms.

The sheltered garden surrounds the house and catches the evening sun. Perfect for a summer evening barbeque. There is some of the best walking & exploring in Cornwall right from the front door.

Badgers Croft is so gorgeous it is hard to leave! You can stroll through the garden and right onto Trencrom Moor. From the top of Trencrom, you can see both coasts, Godrevy Lighthouse to the north and St Michael’s Mount to the south. Look out for the giant and the baby giant’s footsteps!

Lelant is the closest village and St Ives and Hayle are both only a ten minute drive away with some of Cornwall’s best beaches, surf spots, shops & restaurants.

The cottage is reached down a private lane through the Trencrom Moor with parking right next to the house.

The whole house and the garden were just a dream, we never expected it so nice! There were many highlights, one of them is definitely the Badgers Croft, then of course some nice places like Lands End and St.Ives... It was very professional, on the other hand also very personal. Milly and Marta were evertime so helpful, thank you so much again! - Andrea, August 2016

Beautifully clean and tidy. One of the loveliest houses I have rented. Thank you. It was fabulous. Evans - August 2015
