Badgers Cottage is a charming period cottage centrally positioned within level walking distance of the village centre. Over the years the property has been sympathetically updated including the addition of an extension. The cottage has many character features including exposed timber beams, fireplaces and exposed stone walls. The kitchen lies to the rear of the cottage and is well fitted with a range of cupboards, glass faced dresser style cupboards and an upright cupboard. There is space for a gas range cooker, an American style fridge/freezer, plumbing and space for washing machine and dishwasher. To one side of the kitchen there is a shower room, and a stable door which leads out to the pretty enclosed garden. Beyond the kitchen is the sitting room which is double fronted and has an attractive stone fireplace with a coal effect gas stove to one end. The other end could be used as a dining area although there is enough room in the kitchen for a good sized table. There is also a useful understairs cupboard. Upstairs the master bedroom overlooks the garden and is fitted with wardrobes, drawers and bedside tables and has an open plan en-suite bathroom divided by a low partition with Jacuzzi bath and basin. There is a separate WC. There are two further double bedrooms one of which has a storage and airing cupboards and the other a deep storage cupboard. The property is in very good decorative order, has gas fired central heating and is double glazed.

BadgerCottage lies close to the centre of the popular village of Milborne Port which itself lies three miles to the east of historic Abbey town of Sherborne. The village has a surprising number of amenities including a number of good shops, several churches, two public houses, a village hall, a health centre and a primary school while both Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil lie within short motoring distance providing between them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.

The garden to the rear is beautifully landscaped and enclosed. There is a paved patio area immediately outside the kitchen which is an ideal entertaining area and a shaped pond with a water feature and rockery that really sets the scene. The rest of the garden is laid to lawn edged by herbaceous and shrub planting. There is a brick outbuilding with light and power currently being used as office space and at the other end of the garden a further brick built store. At the end of the garden a gravel driveway provides parking with double timber gates accessed from East Street.
