“Truly Outstanding in Every Way Possible”
Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years but nothing comes even close to matching the truly outstanding features of Badger's Den. Chris and Erick are wonderful hosts who have thought of everything you might need and then some more (e.g. a sewing kit, screwdrivers and an extension lead, to name but a few of the many extras). Everything is beautifully maintained and it really feels as if a great deal of love and care goes into the whole place.

Badger's Den is tucked away in an idyllic spot but easy to find nonetheless. Parking is provided very close to the cottage. Inside, Badger's Den is on one level, although there are a couple of steps up to the front gate (take care because I tripped and fell there) and one step to get inside the front door. Providing you can manage a couple of steps, it is suitable for people with limited mobility.

The cottage was immaculate and furnished with quality solid oak furniture throughout. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in - so much so that I checked the labels on the memory foam topper and quality cotton bedding and ordered some of my own from the same company as soon as I got home! Everything worked just as it should, although (given we are not the most technologically proficient people) it would have been helpful to have a five year old child with us to work all the amazing digital gadgets, especially the Smart TV and the hi tech cooker! Having said that, a book containing operating instructions for absolutely everything is conveniently provided and we had fun working things out for ourselves. I have no doubt that, if we had needed help, it would have been provided in a flash!

Our dogs have never been more warmly welcomed; all too often places which say they are 'dog friendly' are anything but. Erick and Chris simply ask that the dogs do not go in the bedroom, which is fair enough. However, they provide a cheerful, yellow checked, fitted throw over the sofa so that our dogs could snuggle up with us in the evenings, just like they do at home. Their own dogs (two lovely Labradors and a gorgeous little Pomeranian) are very friendly but kept well under control at all times. Chris even offered to walk our dogs for us along with theirs! Indeed, Chris and Erick are the perfect hosts, warmly welcoming and on hand should you want anything but totally unobtrusive and very respectful of guests' privacy.

The cottage has it's own private, enclosed patio garden, complete with BBQ where our dogs were safe. Erick and Chris also encouraged us to spend as much time as we wished in their stunningly beautiful gardens. The indoor swimming pool is gorgeous, as is the outdoor jacuzzi (kept at a constant 40 degrees). If you can bear to tear yourself away from the cottage, the guest book lists everything you could possibly need or want to visit in the vicinity. Badger's Den is a jewel within an area of outstanding natural beauty and we can't wait to go back.
Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.

“Complete Perfection”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Badgers Den is a delightful cottage - it is an oasis of tranquillity in the midst of beautiful gardens. The cottage is well appointed and the owners Chris and Erik have thought of everything. They are unobtrusive but always on hand if needed. The swimming pool is amazing and I didn't have to share it at all. The hot tub is beautifully lit and is a great place to unwind after a busy day walking.
The local area is beautiful and there are many good places to eat. A truly lovely place that I hope to visit again.
