The cottage was perfect. We spent February half term there with our 5 month old and 5 year old and dog. The hosts were fantastic and helped us with any query and were very informative. The site itself is ideal as there is enough to do for the kids without it being ?too much?. The cottage had everything we needed for a very cosy place to stay. We will definitely visit again !

This was the 4th time I have stayed at this cottage. It has everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. It's very clean and the mattresses are comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and the ?welcome? pack of milk etc is a great touch. Near to Cirencester which is a great town to visit as well as great country walks. My wife and I and our friends are looking forward to our next visit.

Very clean, comfy & well equipped holiday cottage on pretty complex. Tea & coffee, salt & pepper, dishwasher tablets, tea towels, hand soaps, mini shower gels and a couple of toilet rolls in each of the 3 toilets provided. Also cling, foil, kitchen towel & wash up liquid left by previous guests I think! No oven gloves though. PS2 & games for the kids was a nice surprise, also books, dvds & kids toys / games. Soft beds, very clean. Small fans in 2 bedrooms. Small niggle - master duvet cover was far too big for the duvet & single bunk duvet cover was too small for its duvet! Nice garden area inc BBQ, seating & outdoor toys. A banked stream runs alongside the cottage which is unfenced so caution required for small children. Good onsite pool, sauna, park, trampette, football goals & tennis courts, Miss Mouse nature trail (inc prizes), footpaths & cycle routes, picnic areas - all free!!! bike / boat hire, cafe & mini shop too but a little bit pricey (as expected on a complex really). 10 minute drive to local amenities in Cirencester & pretty town centre. Industrial estate has retail outlet inc KFC & Dominoes, there is also a great farm shop and ice cream factory. Past these you will find McDonalds, Beefeater, Aldi & Tesco's (although we had our shopping delivered to the cottage, no problem). 5 minutes from ?beach? which was very good value as 3 of our group booked the AquaVenture so whole family got access to the beach for the whole day (worth taking a picnic, but cafes / Icecreams also onsite). Friendly, helpful owners who were polite & informative both in their communications via emails and info pack provided on arrival. Our family have truly enjoyed our holiday at Badgers Lodge and we are more than happy to recommend!

"Outstanding family water park cottage"
Amazing location-the heated outdoor pool, changing rooms sauna tennis court and bike hire are very short walk away also the restaurant bar and shop. The cottage is delightful catering for all your and your children's needs it is very clean with lovely soft beds we couldn't have asked for more. We will be back and would definitely recommend.
