If you want peace and quiet in a lovely location this is the place for you. The cottage is spotlessly clean and nicely furnished.

A clean, tidy and well presented cottage. Definitely the best we've stayed at in the UK. There are a lot of places to visit without having to travel too far.

This property is tucked away and quite. There is a field of deer outside and to the left. It is extremely well equipped with an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, dishwasher, freezer, fridge, kettle, toaster etc etc. It was clean and tidy and was a perfect base to get out and about exploring.

The cottage was spotlessly clean only a few years old and well equipped. Situated in a quiet area , in easy reach of some of Somersets delights. We were greeted by a very friendly host and nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly recommend and will return.

I am so happy with every aspect of Honey Badger cottage; it is practically perfect in every way! The cottage is larger than I expected and the quality of finish and interior styling is just right.

This was one of the best equipped and spacious cottages we have visited, the quality of the furniture and fittings was excellent. it was warm and cosy, in fact we had to turn down the heating after the first night even in mid autumn We normally take many items with us after staying at previous cottages, but this time most of them were never used.

Second time we have stayed here. Very quiet location. Can rely on the property being lovely and clean. Heating was on when we arrived which was most welcome as it was a bit of a miserable day. Owners are on site, if required, but far from intrusive. Need to be aware that that there are no shops or a pub within walking distance which was not a problRead moreem for us but may be for some. There is a pub within 1mile but it is along a narrow lane with no footpath. Hide

We had a wonderful month staying at Badger Cottage, it is a delightful place in a gorgeous rural setting. Our grandchildren loved feeding the ducks and were fascinated by the deer in the surrounding fields. Our hosts were friendly, welcoming and helpful, and we couldn't have been happier. We will definitely come back again next year.
