    First Class

    It is a very homely cottage set in quiet tranquil surroundings...fantastic. The staff at Crom are first class especially Ruth who gave us plenty of information about the Crom Estate....a credit to the National Trust.

    Beautifully presented cottage

    Beautifully presented cottage - warm and cosy with the open fire and central heating. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the estate and saw a stag on our first day! Will definitely be back to Badger Cottage.
