Badger Sett

Great accommodation, very well equipped and maintained. It is very child friendly, all on one level, childrens books and games supplied, and cows outside in the field!
Lovely local village (hilly walk with a buggie!) with great pub, tea room and play park.
I would recommend this cottage, and hope to return myself.

our adventures at the badger sett

  • 5 out of 5
well where do we start?
perhaps with the super clean well appointed house, or the soft and comfy beds,or perhaps the posh bathroom and extra shower room for my huge teenagers or even should i mention the close access to mountain bike trails. i must not forget to tell you all about the lovely walk to the next village with the micro brewery and the delicious beer as well as their child friendly welcome.also the canoe and swimming adventure on derwent water. booths in nearby keswick is a treat filled supply of foods and gave us fodder for the walks and river swimming in rosthwaite black moss pot. well anyway wherever we start it all ends with an amazing stay at the badger sett.we will defiantly book this lovely cosy house again and just so you don't believe all the hype about it being wet in the lake district we had dry sunny days enjoying barbecues outside on two evenings watching the sun dip whilst sipping wine in the garden.
cant recommend it more highly .

Fabulous holiday cottage

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot praise the property and the owners highly enough for ensuring that our stay at The Badger Sett was a memorable one.

Many times in life you read descriptions and see photographs that overstate, with The Badger Sett it was the opposite. The cottage is incredibly spacious, decorated and finished to a very high standard, and has all the mod cons without them feeling out of place in the Lake District. To use hotel terminology, this is a 5 star property. The two main bedrooms especially are much bigger than the photos above would suggest. And the second bathroom contains a wonderful shower.

The cottage was imaculately clean on arrival with helpful instructions provided. The communication from the owners before, during and after booking was excellent and any questions we had were answered instantly.

There were 4 of us during our visit, two adults and two young children, but the property would cater for various groups and would comfortably accomodate up to 6 adults.

The location is just outside the lovely (small) village of Hesket Newmarket (less than a mile walk) with its "must visit" The Old Crown pub, where they brew their own real ales. Whilst tucked away in the North East corner of The Lake District, Keswick was a pleasant 30 minute drive away, Carlisle just over 20 minutes and Penrith approximately 15 minutes.

For all the reasons above and more we will be booking again in the near future, and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending The Badger Sett as a lovely holiday location.

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
We had never been to this part of the Lake District before but we weren't disappointed. Its beautiful and much quieter than the other areas we've been too. Hesket Newmarket (we particularly liked The Crown!) and Caldbeck are lovely villages and we went for as many lovely walks as we could cram in to a long weekend. The house itself is wonderful - a bit like a posh hotel - beautifully furnished and lots of room to escape our young children when they got a bit rowdy. We can't wait to go back - just hope we can go for longer next time.

Situated in a secluded valley, The Badger Sett is one of just a handful of houses that make up the hamlet of Newlands. The lovely Lakeland village of Hesket Newmarket, with its famous co-operatively owned pub and micro brewery, The Old Crown, is just a one mile stroll down a peaceful country lane. The remote Caldbeck Fells are on the doorstep and provide fantastic opportunities for walking and mountain biking and The Caldew and Caldbeck Rivers which run through our valley are excellent for kayaking. The classic peaks of Blencathra and Helvellyn are both close by and provide some of the best walking and scrambling routes in the UK. If you prefer more hustle and bustle the popular town of Keswick is a 25 minute drive away whilst historic Hutton-in-the-Forest with its famous horse trials is just around the corner. For long distance walkers The Cumbria Way passes through our valley and for road cyclists The Reivers Route (known as the Return CTC) goes right past the bottom of our drive!

Golf: There are a number of top quality and picturesque courses all within easy reach.

Stony Holme, near Carlisle (16 miles) features an 18-hole 5787-yard par 69 course, as well as a challenging nine-hole par 3 course and a 16-bay floodlit driving range. http://www.carlislegolfclub.org/

Silloth-on-Solway (23 miles) is a fine coastal links course with stunning views of the Galloway Hills to the north, and south to the Lakeland fells and the distant Isle of Man. The Championship links of 6,641 yards has been laid out over the sand-hills west of town and is an R & A Regional Qualifying Course for the Open. http://www.sillothgolfclub.co.uk/

Keswick (12 miles) features an 18 hole, 6225 yards, Par 71 course with commanding views of Lakeland scenery. http://www.keswickgolfclub.com/

Penrith (14 miles) is a beautiful and well-balanced featuring an 18 holes, 6047 yards, Par 69 course. http://www.penrithgolfclub.co.uk/
