Very friendly welcome on arrival, a pack of groceries including milk and a jar of treats for our dog. We encountered a problem with the dishwasher which was attended to promptly, and our request regarding the configuration of the beds had been complied with. Very happy with Badgers Drift and would book again if we revisit the area.

Lovely cottage. All the comforts you could wish for, great walks from the doorstep, very dog friendly with fully enclosed back garden. Rural & quiet. Lots of sheep & lambs at this time of the year in the fields surrounding, so important dogs on leads, but also found other great places for them to run free.
