    • “every thing you could possibly need was in the cottage very well accommodating to all of our group. A lovely couple that made us feel very welcome and tried to help out when a situation arose very much recommended banger cottage”

    Mr Hilton, Sleaford, August 2018

    • “I didn't actually book it via Sykes in the first place, it was Owners Direct originally. All very good though... Badger Cottage at Mudgeon Vean is a great place to stay. Ideal for families with little children it is a farm with a proper playground with swings and adventure climbing frame, there are animals (Chickens, Ducks & Rabbits) and acres of space to play in. There is a nature trail and also a games room with all sorts of toys and a full-sized ping pong table should the weather turn wet. The cottage itself is a well appointed two bedroom, one double one full-sized bunk bed and shower room upstairs with a large open plan living room reception room. The reception room features two sofas (one is a sofa-bed) and an easy chair with Flat-screen TV, DVD player and iPhone charger/Speaker leading on to the kitchen dining room. The kitchen has a fitted suite with modern appliances (fan oven, dishwasher, ceramic hob, washing machine and fridge freezer). Outside there is a private garden with a picnic table and a granite built barbeque. The only downside of this property is it is a long way from the nearest village shop down twisty Cornish lanes so a car is essential. It is a great base to strike out from and very well set up for families. The owners Sarah and Jem couldn't be friendlier and went out of their way to help us and made our stay a real treat. 10/10”
