Watch the badgers from the front window as they forage for peanuts each night, we can't promise that you will see them as they are wild animals but all our guests have so far, see reviews, also see youtube and search for badger rolling egg, to see a video filmed by one of our guests, of a badger rolling an egg into the bushes to eat. A warm welcome and a cream tea await your arrival at Badgers Holt which is situated next to the farm house at Buller Farm near Truro in rural West Cornwall. It is a relaxing and peaceful place where you can sit back and listen to the birds singing. Many people have told us that we have a 'peace of Heaven' There is direct access from the farm gate to the bridleways and cycle tracks that traverse Cornwall. There are 2 double bedrooms, 1 with a king size double...Watch the badgers from the front window as they forage for peanuts each night, we can't promise that you will see them as they are wild animals but all our guests have so far, see reviews, also see youtube and search for badger rolling egg, to see a video filmed by one of our guests, of a badger rolling an egg into the bushes to eat.
