Badgers Cottage - lovely little place, ideal for taking the two dogs. Views to die for on the enclosed patio. Great field just in front of that for the dogs to enjoy running around on. Woods just a bit farther on were great for them to explore. Ideally situated for local beaches and walks. The owner is friendly and came to introduce herself and check all was fine with the cottage. She then left us to enjoy the holiday but was available for any problems at any time of the day.

“Wonderfully peaceful sunrises”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We rarely get away and only had 4 days, but Badger Cottage was the perfect location. Sitting on the patio in the early morning sun was just perfect. The view is glorious and our dog thought the space to run just right. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. We will definitely book again.

“A welcome break.”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Wanted something different to cellabrate the new year and our daughter's birthday that the whole family could enjoy including our Jrx 'dexter' and our 7 month lab 'maisie'...
We would definitely recommend 'dogs paradise' badgers cottage as we all had a great time.
The views were amazing and woodland walk was great for walking of our lunch.
all the local beaches and pubs are dog friendly and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed both!
The pub in Newton tracey the 'hunters inn' serves fantastic meals and has friendly staff/ locals, only downside is that it is not within walking distance.
We will definitely be returning.. Thank you Alison and Tim for a lovely new year break!

Wow, wow, wow, what a lovely view, what a relaxing atmosphere, how peaceful. Just got home from two weeks staying in Badger Cottage. After running a taxi company this is just the ideal place to relax and unwind. We bought our 3 rescue GSD's with us and they loved it. Also my 93 year old mother in law. Accommodation was excellent with 2 bedrooms downstairs (ideal for disabled/elderly) and one upstairs. We had plenty of room,(cottage was equipped with everything you were likely to need) were very relaxed, nice long walks.
The owners were very friendly and helpful and were readily available if needed. Just got to sort out holidays times and we will be back again. Well done to Tim and Alison on such a beautiful location etc.
