High spec, cozy cottage with everything you need. Charming friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

On our arrival it had been snowing so there was a beautiful carpet of snow making the scenery spectacular. We were desperate for a nice cup of tea and were delighted to find that Chris and Erick had thought of everything. A lovely welcome pack with indulgent essentials. Hit the spot nicely.

We walked the dog along Fire Hills in the snow. He had a great time playing the snow. It rained heavily on our first night. It was so nice listening to it on the conservatory roof. All snow gone by second day so we took the dog to Camber sands which was only 30mins away. Went to Battle on the way back which is well worth a look and shared a lovely pub lunch in the quaint little village. The cottage has everything that you could need and the pool, gym and hot tub are a bonus. Chris and Erick are excellent hosts. Everything on site is spotless. We loved our stay and hope to visit again.

Great place, unique location, beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely decorated and furnished. It's a quiet, peaceful country location but close enough to many historical and geographical landmarks. There are many well marked trails to get where you're going so if you like hiking this is your place!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Badgers Den. Erick was the perfect host, very friendly and helpful. The indoor pool and hot tub were amazing even in bad weather. I recommend this cottage highly!
