Badgers Lodge | 3 x Bed Cottage | Sleeps 
Wifi enabled lodge

When initially thinking of holidaying in the Cotswolds, your first thought is curling up in front of a fire surrounded by the people you love… upon arrival, Badgers Lodge welcomes you with that quintessential Cotswold cottage feel as it is sympathetically built with the traditional cream local stone.

Entering the porch and opening the front door, the ground floor of the property is home to a welcoming entrance area.  To the right you have a good-sized cloakroom, WC and washing machine - and lots of additional storage space plus a place for coats and wellies.  Walking left, you arrive at the dining area and brand-new fitted kitchen with all the usual appliances. Around the corner in the living area, you are drawn to the beautiful fireplace and wood burning stove, transporting you back to those initial thoughts of holidaying in the Cotswolds. From the lounge you have a set of French doors allowing access to the outside seating area, dining area, and garden overlooking the stream.

The large and sought-after garden area to the side of the property with surrounding hedgerow allows for privacy and relaxation. The decking wraps around two sides of the cottage and provides one area for outside dining and another for sitting back, chatting with a drink in hand until sunset – all whilst the children play in the garden that is filled with sunlight due to the cottage’s aspect. At the rear, Badgers Lodge sits on a stream and visiting ducks will come and say a neighbourly “hello” whilst you sip your coffee in the morning sunshine. Bird song bouncing through the day as you are enveloped in nature in this mature section of Lower Mill Estate and its nature reserve.

At the top of the stairs, a nice wide landing with high ceilings leading off to the 3 bedrooms. The first bedroom on the right features a triple bunkbed (sleeps 3 - double on bottom, single on top) and a double wardrobe.  Opposite is a bedroom with a double bed – through the window you can view Mill Lake, which is one of the better exclusive fishing lakes on the Nature Reserve.  Both are served by a brand-new family bathroom with bath and shower.  At the back of the property, we have the master bedroom that comprises of a king-size bed and recently fitted ensuite shower room.

Badgers Lodge is one of only a few properties in Mill Village to include full rental membership to the onsite Lower Mill Spa for all guests.  This allows you and your family and friends the option to access and use the indoor and outdoor swimming pools. You will also be able to book yourselves some of the amazing treatments the Spa have to offer.  For more information, please visit our dedicated Lower Mill Spa page.

There is also a further outdoor pool in Mill Village that can be used all year-round during daylight hours.  With a ‘French camp site’ feel, it really is a favourite with families visiting the Estate. The River Thames also flows through Mill Village as it meanders its journey through the beautiful local countryside to London - you are quite literally 10-15 yards to embark on walks along the famous Thames Path.

Badgers Lodge is now a pet friendly house and welcomes guests with a small/medium sized dog by prior agreement.
