Excellent cottage, very clean and nice cosy atmosphere. very enjoyable stay! Only downside was wifi problems, not working in bedrooms upstairs, which was a shame, hope this can be fixed. Had a really good time, recommended.

About the neighbourhood
Badgers Den is in a rural location in an area of outstanding natural beauty just outside the town of Budleigh Salterton. It is surrounded by fields and about 1 km away from the start of the Budleigh commons and fishing reservoir. The commons are great for walking, and off road cycling. In the other direction it is about 1 mile to the beach and the jurassic coast. There is a disused railway line approximately 200yards up the lane which takes you to Exmouth - great for dog walking and cycling.
Getting around
The is a bus from the village of Knowle 100 metres although it is not very frequent it goes to Sidmouth and Exmouth where you can catch a train into Exeter.

The location is ideal as a base if you have a car as it is quite easy to go to Dartmoor, Torquay area or to Dorset and fossil hunting at Lyme Regis
