Perfect place for a family of four to stay. Plenty of space but also cosy with the wood burner fire. Plenty of activities for younger children in the area and also lots of good walking. The town of Presteigne is also lovely to walk around and visit the lovely shops and delis.

A comfortable, characterful cottage in an idyllic location, with welcoming hosts. It was a joy to walk across and greet the horses and goats, enjoy the local walks with amazing views, or spend time relaxing in the garden. A relaxing sanctuary, after some superb days out in the area. Highly recommended, thank you.

We enjoyed our week in Badgers Drift a great deal. The house is very well set out and equipped. The owners made us most welcome on arrival and were helpful when needed. We would easily recommend this house and the area.
