    Fabulous holiday cottage

    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.

    Brilliant luxury, in a truly beautiful and quiet setting!

    The Badger's Sett has everything you could want from a luxury holiday home, and a little bit more! The house is beautifully furnished in a modern meets traditional way and makes the most of the stunning views across the fells. A short walk (15 mins) to the local village gets you to one of the quaintest pubs I've ever come across, with home-brewed ales and traditional pub food. The village also has a little shop, which seems to stock things you would never have expected! All in all, it provided a wonderful place to stay for a quiet retreat - a beautiful location, a lovely house (felt like home after only three days!), and beds and a shower to die for! Thoroughly recommended!!

    A beautiful cottage, in a stunning location

    We have returned from a fabulous break at Badger Sett. There were four adults, one baby and a toddler. The cottage catered perfectly for our needs. It is finished and to a excellent standard, with beautifully decorated and furnished bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas. The mix of contemporary design and soft furnishing provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The cottage is set in a private and secure garden ideal for playing, relaxing and outdoor eating. The cottage is surounded by stunning views and within a short and pretty walk to the village, with friendly locals, a nice pub, tea shop and park. Some great walks were enjoyed from this village and we look forward to our next visit.

    Beautiful accommodation, spacious and comfortable.

    We have just returned from a fantastic week away at the Badger Sett. The accommodation is really well laid out, with the living accommodation at one end of the property and the bedrooms at the other end. All the rooms are really spacious, especially the master bedroom. It was really easy to find the property and took about an hour and fifteen minutes to get there from Preston. Although the property felt remote it was within easy reach of places like Keswisk, Carlisle and Penrith. We had great fun exploring all the local villages, Calderbeck is beautiful and the village of Hesket Newmarket was only a 20 minute walk away. The local pub was a delight although if you want to eat there you should definately book a day or two in advance. Would definately recommend staying at the Badget Sett.
