So glad you enjoyed your stay and sorry we couldn't fix the weather. Hope to welcome you back soon.
Lovely part of the world
In a beautiful location. Cottage was very spacious and peaceful. We appreciated the bottle of wine. The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the big TV and wii. We did think that in some areas the decor was a little tired and in need of redecoration, particularly the shower room which seemed affected by damp and the master bedroom in particular was quite dark with heavy dark furniture and dark carpets. I realise it’s an old property in parts but there was quite a mix of styles going on which I’m not sure helped. Of course that’s my personal taste and others would probably disagree!
little piece of heaven.
We totally fell in love with The Badger set, it is a perfect holiday home , most certainly a five star property. The area and walks are outstanding , and Dom the owners response was very friendly, swift and helpful with any queries. Hope to go back next year.
So glad you had a good time and looking forward to welcoming you back next year!
What a find!!!!
Lovely family holiday in the lakes over May half term.
The property is nestled away in the country side - very quiet. Safe garden. Lovely bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed. Good BBQ too. Highly recommend for a family plus we could take the dog - who loved the garden. Excellent property.
Thanks so much for the lovely review Emma – hope we can welcome you back soon!
Just this side of heaven...
Extremely well stocked. Comfy beds. Great showers. Country living at its finest. WiFi and all the modern conveniences are top notch. You won’t go wrong here.
Thanks for the lovely review. Hope to welcome you back!
Staying at badger sett
Perfect getaway. We were a party of four adults, a toddler and two dogs. The house is perfectly laid out with all the things you need for a relaxing getaway. We throughly enjoyed our stay!
Situated in a secluded valley, The Badger Sett is one of just a handful of houses that make up the hamlet of Newlands. The lovely Lakeland village of Hesket Newmarket, with its famous co-operatively owned pub and micro brewery, The Old Crown, is just a one mile stroll down a peaceful country lane. The remote Caldbeck Fells are on the doorstep and provide fantastic opportunities for walking and mountain biking and The Caldew and Caldbeck Rivers which run through our valley are excellent for kayaking. The classic peaks of Blencathra and Helvellyn are both close by and provide some of the best walking and scrambling routes in the UK. If you prefer more hustle and bustle the popular town of Keswick is a 25 minute drive away whilst historic Hutton-in-the-Forest with its famous horse trials is just around the corner. For long distance walkers The Cumbria Way passes through our valley and for road cyclists The Reivers Route (known as the Return CTC) goes right past the bottom of our drive!
