We've had an amazing week. Beautiful cottage and so well equipped it's made the week so easy with a toddler on tow. The welcome pack was a really lovely surprise too. We have loved the views, the playground, the pool and all the local attractions. (Monks Park Farm highly recommended if you have a youngster) Can't believe it's gone so quickly, we'd love to come back. Thanks for helping make it such a great and memorable holiday. March 2019

Thank you for a wonderful weeks holiday. the welcome pack of goodies was much appreciated. the cottage is warm and very comfortable. the swimming pool was a lovely way to start the day. Plenty of places to explore both locally and a little further afield. We followed your recommendation and enjoyed a very tasty meal at the Oak Tree, South Kilvington. Thank you March 2019

Thank you Amanda and John for another wonderful stay. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we came for our little boys 9th birthday - his choice - we were here in November, and when we asked him what he would like to do on his birthday, he said "Old Oak Cottages". He has enjoyed swimming in the pool, playing tennis, and a lovely walk up to the White Horse of Kilburn. Thank you for the lovely basket of goodies. You always make us feel so welcome - home from home. We will be back. February 2019.

Wow! What a find! a Gem of a place, we will most certainly return, and also recommend to family and friends. Cosy, clean, serene - we had a perfect time. Thank you. February 2019

Fabulous weekend, everything was absolutely fantastic and we couldn't have asked for a better location, cottage or facilities. Will definitely  recommend and will return. January 2019.

Fab, Fab, Fab,! Extremely well furnished and equipped place to stay, the facilities are great and every attention to detail thought of, would definitely stay again, thanks very much.    December 2018

Stayed for a week in October and the weather was great. Badger cottage is well equipped and had everything we needed even down to a bed guard and baby monitor for the children. The owners were lovely and helpful. We had some lovely days out visiting local towns and villages. Forrester's Arms in Kilburn was great food at a reasonable price. We had a great week and cannot fault Badger cottage at all. Thank you.  October 2018

Brilliant location with a fantastic, clean, bright, well equipped cottage. Visited some lovely villages and towns. Amanda and John this is a wonderful retreat kept to an amazingly high standard. Thanks October 2018
