Badgers Cottage sleeps 8 and is ideal for a family beach holiday
Hello my name is Monica. I have four children and live in Exeter. Our family still live in the village of Sennen , and we have been enjoying our holidays here for over 25 years and love being by the sea at Badgers Cottage. Badgers Cottage sits in a row of four beautifully appointed granite cottages, with views of the sea. We bought Badgers Cottage in the summer of 1997. It is a very special place. Badgers cottage was renovated in 2010, and Badgers Loft, a new loft conversion was completed in 2014 and we now have many guests return year after year to stay. 2017/8 we have redecorated and added lots of lovely furniture and pictures . A new shower room, stone kitchen floor, cooker and retro fridge !
Monica purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Monica chose Sennen Cove
Our cottage is Perfect for getting away from it all and being by the sea! We have loved our unique special place for over 20 years and everyone that comes to stay feels exhilirated by its proximity to the amazing Atlantic ocean. Loads to do and see nearby.... Coastal walks; Lands End is a 30 minute walk along the South West Coast Path St Ives/St Just/Penzance are all a short drive away or take the open top bus from the bus stop in the cove. The famous Minack Theatre is 5 miles away with a wonderful season of theatre, music and storytelling. Whitesands beach...Perfect powder white sand beach with lifeguards during the summer months, and Sennen Surf Centre and surf shop on your doorstep for all surf lessons and equipment hire. Ben Tunnicliffe's restaurant is situated on the beach with cafes and a local shops in the village for all the bits you forgot to bring! Badgers cottage has a separate loft with its own access and outside space, which can be rented separately if you are a larger family looking for extra room.

Super cottage close enough to one of the best beaches anywhere and so close you can hear the waves breaking while laid in bed. Badger Cottage was a great base to enjoy a relaxing 2 week family holiday.
Thank you so much for your kind review .
I’m so glad you had a wonderful holiday ! Being so close to the sea is magical ..
You are all booked in for next year :)
Lovely cottage in the best location.
Had a lovely week in Badgers Cottage. The location was excellent just a stones throw away from beach. We had a relaxing stay with our family sitting in the front garden in the mornings with a cuppa and watching the sunset in the evenings with a glass of wine.
The cottage was clean and cosy and we couldn't have asked for more.
Will definitely book again.
Thank you Rachel
You are welcome back to our cottage anytime :)
Great seaside cottage in an ideal position
Situated on the lovely Sennen cove this cottage is a great base for walking, surfing and generally exploring the beautiful Cornwall coast.
It`s fully equipped for meals in and situated conveniently not far from a great pub (Old success) and down the road from a good fish and chip shop!
We walked extensively (land`s end is an easy one) , played golf at the Cape with it`s spectacular views, and visited the Minack theatre for a memorable night out.(take a picnic)
Not to mention the wonderful surfing the younger element enjoyed in the cove. (admittedly we were blessed with great weather for our week)
All in all a comfortable cottage nicely done out, with all necessary utensils situated in a great position.
(We loved sitting outside watching the sun go with a glass or two)
Hopefully we will return soon.
A lovely bright & fashionable beach cottage
Badgers Cottage and Loft are situated right on the sea front in Sennen Cove. Being tucked back from the road, the cottage offers peace and tranquility; but decide you'd like a late afternoon swim or surf or glass of wine, and its a mere hope and a skip from you front door. The cottage takes its style cue from the sea and there is a lovely crisp and clean nautical theme throughout. Showers and bathrooms are clean and everything works well. The kitchen is a lovely size- roomy and well stocked with pots pans and ample cooking equipment. We cooked in every night and really enjoyed doing so. The cottage has clearly had a refurbishment recently and is very well maintained, with help on hand should you need anything.
Parking is in the main car park and you can buy a voucher for a week ( if the machines are working) otherwise its a fiver a day, which is fine, but means you have to remember to renew the ticket. The front garden catches the afternoon sun and i sat out many an evening sipping a glass of wine and reading as the sun set over the horizon. The back garden is functional - great for wetsuits and drying things, but we tended to use the front or the beach.
We would definitely return again and my daughter was staying upstairs in Badgers loft at the same time, which worked perfectly.
Cracking cottage in a great position in Sennen Cove - great for family stays
We had a fantastic week staying in Badgers Cottage - excellent weather helped but also the position of the Cottage right on the sea front meant that walking to the beautiful sandy beach of Whitesands Bay takes literally minutes, the excellent Old Success Inn is even closer and our kids loved being allowed to walk along the pavement down to the Old Boathouse 'corner' shop to get the paper and maybe some sweets each day!
The cottage is well appointed and spacious enough for two families without being enormous - the two bathrooms do come in handy! It's nicely decorated, clean and there's a great front garden area for catching the last of the sun and watching the sunset.
A car parking space would make this place perfect, but it's not a big issue as there's a choice of two car parks very close by if the parking restrictions are in place (from 1st April I think) - £3.50 for day's parking in the Harbour car park.
We will be returning!
