We stayed at White Willow Barn and it completely exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived. We had fully researched and looked at travellers' pictures on TripAdvisor, but it looked a million times better in the flesh. Colin King greeted us and settled us in. He kindly pointed us in the direction of our fridge, which contained our cream tea that he'd put together for us :)) Delicious! What a traditionally Kernow way to kick start our holiday in Cornwall! The barn was really warm and cosy and we lit the fire on a couple of occasions too - just for the fun of it really. Every little detail has been considered at White Willow and Colin has put so much thought into this place. He understood that we didn't know the area at all, we were real tourists and so he talked us through all the places we should go to - that was really helpful. The location of the barn is wonderful, up its own winding single track lane, all you can hear are the birds. After spending the daytime exploring Cornwall, we couldn't wait to wait to get back there, you really do feel completely at home. All the reviews you read here are absolutely true. This is a magical place and one we will definitely be returning to. Sad to be home to the sound of noisy cars and reality :( ! See you again soon White Willow :))

this is the second time we have stayed at badgers hollow, and it wont be the last.
the barn conversion has been done to an immaculate standard ( i know i am a carpenter)
right from the georgeous lounge, to the amazing large bed area.
the kitchen is kitted out very nicely, walk in shower great and spa bath.
the views are absolutely stunning from the lounge and bedroom.
and the feel of the place is light and airy.
colin the owner is so chilled and very helpful.
its a wonderful and relaxing place to be. and you feel youve had a total chillout.
the fresh scones, jam, and cream were a lovely touch,
its a great base very near to fowey, looe polperro and st austel .
i cannot recommend this place enough, in my top two

Liked best: All of it
Liked least: The only fault is that there are not enough hooks for towels in the bathroom near the bath and the walk in shower, but this is a very small matter for us..

“"TRUELY MAGICAL"”
Reviewed 22 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Badgers Hollow is truely magical. Colin the owner met us on arrival and explained all about the cottage. This cottage is truely 5 star. The amazing super king size double bed, wonderful furniture and beautiful kitchen. And the incredible bathroom with jacuzzi and tv. The candles and oils are such a lovely touch too. The kitchen is very well equipt and there wasnt anything that was missing. We evan had a lovely cream tea in the fridge on arrival and fruit basket.

The wildlife is all around, we had a family of ducks that knocked on the door each evening to be fed.

If you want to chill out, escape the world for a few days then this is the place to be. We have been back for only a couple of hours and re booked for November.

I wasnt going to write this review but thought I had too as it is so special but on the other hand wanted to keep it to ourselves.

“Impeccable hideaway retreat”
Reviewed 6 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Beautiful renovated cottage- perfect for romantic breaks. Peaceful and tranquil.
The owner Colin was a perfect host and made sure everything was right. Fowey is only 5 minutes away but easily accessible and is a lovely unique place to visit.
