Warm reception and excellent welcome pack. Lovely gardens and facilities, especially the use of indoor, heated swimming pool and outside hot tub! The cottage was superbly equipped together with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom/shower. Dog friendly. Ideally situated as a base to explore the South Downs of East Sussex and also the coastal towns/villages and amenities. Thoroughly recommend this opportunity, and the owner who couldn't have been more helpful. Would definitely have another bite of this cherry!
Just returned from a week's holiday, and hope to return. Badgers Den has character, is well maintained and has a wonderful shared pool and jacuzzi. It's location is ideal for walkers, explorers of the area, and the immediate gardens are lovely.
We enjoyed Hastings old town, which has great pubs, and places to eat. Its just under 2 miles to walk the scenic route, and it's easy to get the bus back which is a short walk from the cottage. The fishermens museum is interesting for those who want to know more about the local history and the fishing.
A trip to Battle is worth it, and to visit the site of the 1066 Battle of Hastings that has an audio tour, which we found informative. Also enjoyed Camber Sands, Rye, and Eastbourne Sovereign Harbour, which if you like boats and peaceful marinas it's about 15 miles away.
However, it was great to explore and walk, but so peaceful being back at the cottage and enjoying its facitilites. As a couple with a dog, we stayed once school holidays were over, you may find it busier in holiday periods.
Chris and Erick are great hosts, and they are on hand if you need anything, otherwise you are left to enjoy! The flowers, cake, and fruit on arrival were lovely touches. We would recommend Badgers Den, particularly for couples, and dog lovers.
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Badgers Den. The setting is idyllic, the cottage has everything a family could need and the facilities are superb. We made good use of the pool and loved the wonderful gardens. The location is also ideal for exploring the wonderful East Sussex coast and countryside. Thank you to Chris and Erick for all your kind hospitality, we look forward to returning soon.
Quiet, cozy and well-equipped cottage, wonderful for dogs, not far from the beach and supermarket

This place is a must !! If you're looking for a place with privacy and character with your own private pool and hot tub ..... then you need to stay here. This place was perfect for us, we love a place that's a little bit different and has something more to offer than the norm and this place definitely has it. It has all the mod cons you could need and was very comfortable indeed. Eric is a lovely guy and made sure we were well looked after so a big shout to Eric ... thanks dude !!
Will definitely book here again without hesitation and I highly recommend you do the same ..... why would you want a tacky old hotel room when you can have a whole beautiful cottage with all the trimmings for the same money ....... it's a no brainer guys .... book it !!
