About the property

Large kitchen opens on to the lounge with kitchen table and four chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with fan oven, electric hob, extractor fan, microwave oven, toaster, large fridge/freezer and washing machine. An immersion heater provides hot water.

Very comfortable and light open-plan living room with two sofas, TV/DVD and great views over the valley. There is a woodburner for those chilly off-season evenings or an electric wall heater if you prefer. Badgers has wifi broadband internet.

Beautifully appointed, well equipped holiday home-very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here for a week with our 2 children (7 and 5 yrs old). The lodge is compact but has plenty of space for 4 people even if you had to stay in due to weather. We were lucky and were able to be out on the beach every day. Bentham is a short drive away with its beautiful sandy beach (dog friendly part is a bit of a walk through the dunes but perfectly manageable).

We enjoyed 2 delicious meals at The Sloop Inn in Bantham (fish & Chips were amazing!) and a lovely breakfast at the Village Stores.

The lodge was well equipped and very comfortable. It was lovely to wake up to the hillside and munching cows! Very peaceful.

Very cosy and comfortable cottage

Set in an idyllic location. Badgers Den is a well equipped holiday cottage with all you need for a home from home stay. A warm welcome from Judy and the chilled Prosecco was much appreciated.

Spacious, well appointed and cared-for cabin in secluded valley.

  • 5 of 5

Site is small, quiet and spacious with dedicated parking space. All paintwork, furniture and fittings are of excellent quality and fit for purpose. Owners had left welcoming gifts plus milk and tea. There is a useful collection of information about the many interesting places in the vicinity to visit, these were helpful in enabling us to plan each day according to the weather conditions.
