My family and I have had a wonderful week at your beautiful cottage. From the minute I booked the holiday I was impressed with the service. I had some questions which were answered straight away.

We parked the car, amazed by the beautiful gardens. Got our key from a safe hanging on the wall. It was great to have the privacy while settling in. Walking into the cottage we spotted a basket with crisps, biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar and sweeties for our daughter. In the living room there was a fruit bowl overflowing with fruit! Also a fresh bouquet of roses on the table. There was a bottle of milk in fridge as well as 2 bottles of cider!! The settee had covers on it as we had a dog with us. There was plenty of room to store clothes, a vanity table in the conservatory for make up/ hair stuff etc. There were 2 big bathrooms, one with a separate shower and HUGE bath and other with a walk in shower with two shower heads. One being a big square one. Felt like I was in a spa! Apart from that the kitchen had everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday!! Our cottage had a dishwasher, washing machine and there was a tumble dryer in a separate utility room used by the owners which we were allowed to use as well. There was also a cupboard full of board games for kids which was a lovely touch! The TV was massive with free Amazon instant video and freesat channels.

Once we settled in we went to see Chris who showed us around the pool area and gym and he also gave us a map with local walks and tide times. We had a look around the gardens and we were told that we can go in them as we please. They are truly breathtaking and it's obvious the owners take great pride in up keeping them.

We ordered groceries online before arrival and they were delivered in the evening. The first night there we discovered just how comfy the bed really is!!! It's pure luxury...like sleeping on a cloud and add to that the duck down pillows and duvet...perfection!! I have never slept so well on holiday. The fold out bed our daughter slept on was also comfy!

The outside area was gated and partly decked so safe for dog and kids. There was a table with 4 chairs and two reclining chairs and a coal bbq with all utensils. Also a hose to clean boots/dog etc.

The cottage is set in the Hastings Nature Reserve Park and there are plenty of paths and trails on the doorstep. Some harder then others. We walked to the North seat which had stunning views of the area. Also had a walk down to Covehurst Bay Beach (Fairlight Glen) which was very steep so walking boots are recommended as well as a bottle of water! Its a beach shared with nudists but we were lucky to have it to ourselves
The walk to Hastings is lovely too.

Apart from the many walks with the dog we also visited Rye, Camber Sands for the sandy beach, Hastings, Pett Level beach which was very nice and deserted!! Also caught the train from Hastings to Brighton for a day trip out.

We used the pool most evenings and had it to ourselves. It was lovely and warm even in the summer. Perfect. The seats in the pool area were very comfy and we were allowed to bring the dog with us as long as she didn't jump in the water. The pool had a lot of toys, arm bands and woggles. Perfect for having los of fun!

I would recommend this cottage to everyone for its luxury, comfort, friendly owners and of course the location.

Thanks Chris and Eric, you have exceeded our expectations.

“Delightful cottage with all amenities, scrupulously clean and wonderful owners.”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent a month in Badger's Den and it was a very comfortable happy time. Cottage had everything one could want and was very clean and welcoming. Owners could not have been more helpful.Well kept gardens, easy parking and not far from town. Lovely area of Fairlight with walks on rolling hills down to the sea. Would not hesitate to return for another holiday. A long way from Australia.

“Lovely place and stunning landscapes”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were given a warm welcome during our stay with our son and our puppy. Chris and his associate were very nice. The cottage was lovely and very comfortable, the private gardens beautiful and the warmed pool a heaven. You can even listen to your own music through ceiling speakers while swimming ! So cooooool :-D There's a lot of great walks in the surroundings and the bay is amazing ! Definitely the place to stay in south of Britain.

“A Great Place to stay”
Reviewed May 30, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Thank you very much Chris and Erick for everything, a super spotlessly clean very comfy accommodation, lovely flowers, hamper and all the other extra touches, which give it a very homely feel. The garden is beautiful and visited by many different birds, and guests are free to wander around. It is a very peaceful location. We were made very welcome when we arrived and Chris gave us map of the area and told us about the various walks that you can do right from the doorstep within the Hastings Country Park. The swimming pool was lovely and warm, and it was great to connect my iPod to the music system and swim to my favourite music tracks. We enjoyed our extended stay in Badgers Den, it is a super base from which to explore the area. There are lots of lovely places to visit, Herstmonceux Castle, several National Trust properties within a reasonable radius, Rye & Hastings Old Town with the unique 'Net Shops’. Charging our car on return from a day out was a big bonus. We hope to stay with you again sometime.
