The Badger Sett is a tranquil hideaway located in the unspoilt north-eastern corner of the Lake District National Park and is our home-from-home. We use it as often as we can (with our two children and well behaved dog). In between times we invite you to come and enjoy it too. We want to make you feel at home and aim to provide the highest quality of facilities, fittings and service.

Since buying The Badger Sett in late 2010 we've completely remodeled and refurbished the cottage to make it in to the stylish, spacious and extremely relaxing place that it is today. Built around a 200 year old barn with modern extensions to either side, the cottage is all on one level (so no stairs to worry about) and the safe, enclosed garden make it ideal for families with children.

The cottage sits in its own grounds with beautiful views across the valley and is approached via a gated driveway from a very quiet country lane. There is an outside dining area with BBQ, off-road parking for up to three cars and a tap for washing muddy bikes and boots. The nearest house is the farm across the lane and the only neighbours you're likely to meet are the inquisitive and friendly bullocks who live in the field next door.

Inside is luxuriously furnished with a harmonious blend of funky modern, retro chic and antique furniture – there's no shortage of mod-cons but there are plenty of traditional features too. There's also free wifi if you find it impossible to leave work behind or you have teenagers suffering from facebook withdrawal.

The picturesque Lakeland village of Hesket Newmarket is just a one mile stroll down a peaceful country lane and is home to The Old Crown, Britain's first co-operatively owned pub which boasts its own micro-brewery. The remote Caldbeck Fells are on the doorstep and provide fantastic opportunities for walking and mountain biking. The popular market town of Keswick (arguably the outdoor capital of the UK) is just a 25 minute drive away whilst the beautiful Ullswater lies 15 miles to the south.

The Cumbria region

The Lake District is the largest of the 13 national parks in England and Wales and is known the world over for its outstanding scenery of lakes and mountains. The lovely Lakeland village of Hesket Newmarket, with its famous co-operatively owned pub and micro brewery, The Old Crown, is just a one mile stroll down a peaceful country lane. The remote Caldbeck Fells are on the doorstep and provide fantastic opportunities for walking and mountain biking and The Caldew and Caldbeck Rivers which run through our valley are excellent for kayaking.

Hesket Newmarket

The classic peaks of Blencathra and Helvellyn are both close by and provide some of the best walking and scrambling routes in the UK. If you prefer more hustle and bustle the popular town of Keswick is a 25 minute drive away whilst historic Hutton-in-the-Forest with its famous horse trials is just around the corner. For long distance walkers The Cumbria Way passes through our valley and for road cyclists The Reivers Route (known as the Return CTC) goes right past the bottom of our drive!

There are lots of things to do close by, including:

• Go Ape – treetop adventures

• boat hire and steamer trips on the lakes

• Hadrian's Wall

• Hutton-in-the-Forest historic house

• Carlisle Castle

• The beach at St Bees
