Just outside Constantine, about five miles west of Falmouth, Badgers is approx half a mile from the Helford Estuary and about 400 yards from a good country pub. Not only are the surroundings picturesque, with access along winding 'up and downy' lanes, but Badgers is in one of the best location for beaches and countryside. 

Originally built of granite and slate around 1860, the house retains original old features. There are oak framed iron windows, window seats, openings and high timber trussed ceilings to the sitting room. There’s a sunny terrace facing south west in the partly walled garden and plenty of space for outdoor games.

The sitting room upstairs has plenty of light, views, a stone fireplace and a wood burning stove. There are two bedrooms, one double one twin and a gallery loft with two beds reached by a steep ladder from the sitting room, suitable for adventurous children. There is a small stained glass window in the attic. 

The kitchen is long and high with a dining table at one end and heated by an oil fired Rayburn and range cooker. The utility and games room is shared with Polwartha Cottage. There are lawns on both sides of the house, ample parking, a safe play area for children and acres of land around the house. There are electric heaters to supplement the Rayburn and wood burner, for which there is plenty of fuel.
