This luxurious pod, named after the expertly crafted homes of badgers known as setts, reflects the meticulous and harmonious spirit of these fascinating creatures.

In ‘Badgers Sett,’ you’ll find a cozy retreat, akin to the warm and secure burrow of a badger. The interior design, with its plush furnishings and soft lighting, mirrors the comfort and intimacy of a badger’s den.

House Rules

We try not to impose too many rules for our guests – we are pet friendly and welcome a well behaved companion along with you otherwise we really understand your enjoyment is not as great as it can be.

We know that your pets will climb on the furniture so we do provide throws to put on the furniture so please use them. We also prefer your pet not to be left unattended in the lodge unless he/she will happily sit in a cage until you come back without disturbing your neighbours.

We are a no smoking – our preference is that the site is smoke free but we do provide outdoor ashtrays – we would be grateful if you clean up before you depart and get rid of the ashtray contents.

There are a few communal areas for your enjoyment including a laundry area as well as a fire pit and pizza over – we will add to this in the future but please keep the area clean and tidy for our other guests.

We are a quiet site in the middle of the Cotswold countryside so we are grateful for your support in keeping light and noise pollution as low as possible.

A wonderful and cozy place, a nice spacious house and a view of the lake from the hot tub and the upper balcony - something wonderful. easy operation of the heating system and the entire house in general. A large number of kitchen items and, above all, board games which I did not expect there.

Stayed for my birthday weekend with family and friends and my dog. Great location with beautiful surroundings. House was perfect for what we wanted and a lovely chocolate cake awaited. We enjoyed the games provided to.
I would certainly recommend this property and may return in the future.

Amazing house! Lovely weekend stay for 5 uni friends. Lots of do but as it was winter time we took advantage of the hot tub and chilled out inside. Lovely walk on the Saturday with a lovely local pub close by.
The lake is gated and has residence on as well as rentals.
Would 100% come back.
