Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
Badby, Daventry, Northamptonshire, England
My brand new eco cottage is built in the heart of the lovely village of Badby. Built to a very high standard it uses natural material finishes where possible. It has two bedrooms with flexible sleeping layout (twin or super king to master bedroom), two bathrooms, comfortable lounge, fully fitted kitchen and sofa bed. The property benefits from the very latest heating technologies featuring a Hanson Formpave Themopave Ground Source Heat system, plus Solar powered hot water and underfloor heating throughout. Just a short stroll to two great country pubs which serve real ales and home cooked food. Ideally located as a base to see the numerous attractions which surround us or for a quiet walking holiday.
There is off road parking in the private courtyard, plus additional parking in the extremely quiet cul-de-sac outside the cottage.

The facilities in the cottage were excellent; we had everything we needed for our stay including clean linen and towels each week, provided by the owner. It is well situated close to a number...

We just loved our weekend away at this lovely cottage in the beautiful village of Badby. The three of us had the most amazing weekend. Val the owner couldn’t have been more accommodating. We had no trouble gaining entry and we particularly appreciated the milk, tea and coffee as a welcome and even provided us with complimentary toiletries! The cottage...
