    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    The Badger Sett is a tranquil hideaway located in the unspoilt north-eastern corner of the Lake District National Park and is our home-from-home. We use it as often as we can (with our two children and well behaved dog). In between times we invite you to come and enjoy it too. We want to make you feel at home and aim to provide the highest quality of facilities, fittings and service.

    Since buying The Badger Sett in late 2010 we've completely remodeled and refurbished the cottage to make it in to the stylish, spacious and extremely relaxing place that it is today. Built around a 200 year old barn with modern extensions to either side, the cottage is all on one level (so no stairs to worry about) and the safe, enclosed garden make it ideal for families with children.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We had great weather and there is plenty of walking in the area. The house itself is well equipped and both the bathroom and... more

We wanted a short escape from hustle and bustle, but still needed wi-fi to keep in touch. This place offered a very stylish environment to enjoy a break away in the countryside with all the modern conveniences you would want - great tv with cinema sound and dvd'd to play, wii and ipod stereo. Surrounded by countryside and a working... more

Management response:

Thanks for your lovely review and I'm so glad you liked our 'no chintz' approach! I'm very sorry about the musty smell in the main bedroom but thank you for alerting us to it – it's probably due to a combination of very wet weather and a couple of weeks without guests. We are visiting next week to carry out end-of-season... more

The cottage is really well equipped from a huge tv and surround sound, to a number of films and books (including OS maps) and a lovely new fitted kitchen and bathrooms. The cottage itself is like a tardis, the pictures don't do it justice and the rooms are... more
