Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Badby, Daventry, Northamptonshire, England
My brand new eco cottage is built in the heart of the lovely village of Badby. Built to a very high standard it uses natural material finishes where possible. It has two bedrooms with flexible sleeping layout (twin or super king to master bedroom), two bathrooms, comfortable lounge, fully fitted kitchen and sofa bed. The property benefits from the very latest heating technologies featuring a Hanson Formpave Themopave Ground Source Heat system, plus Solar powered hot water and underfloor heating throughout. Just a short stroll to two great country pubs which serve real ales and home cooked food. Ideally located as a base to see the numerous attractions which surround us or for a quiet walking holiday.
There is off road parking in the private courtyard, plus additional parking in the extremely quiet cul-de-sac outside the cottage.

We stayed at the cottage while being in the area for a family wedding. To be totally honest, I can find nothing negative to say about the cottage and it’s location. The village of Badby is charming, almost picture post card, with two pubs, and it was handily located for Dodford Manor, the wedding venue. The cottage is deceptively roomy,...

With an event in Daventry to attend, we chose to self cater at this lovely cottage and no regrets, It was easy to find, warm and with loads of hot water great as the snow and cold outside was considerable. Well equipped kitchen and comfy beds. If our event is at Daventry next year, we will be back

Special interest:
There are numerous walks in the area including the Knightley Way and Nene Way which both start in the village and run through the adjacent Badby Woods. The woods are famous for their bluebells in spring and are home to numerous species of wildlife. These include Muntjac and Roe Deer, Woodpeckers, Badgers and many species of wild birds.
