Pewsey, Wiltshire, England
Heron's Nest log cabin, part of Willowbank Lodges, nestles in a small hamlet in the heart of the Pewsey Vale bordering the Kennet and Avon canal. The five luxury log cabins have been solidly built from Russian redwood and are situated in three and a half acres including a private lake and are surrounded by beautiful countryside and a wide variety of wildlife. Heron's Nest cabin directly overlooks the stream and facing due west, is the sunniest cabin on site so gets the sun in the early evening after everyone else has been cast into shade. <BR><BR>Bird lovers will enjoy watching the various families of waterfowl on the lake, including our indigenous pair of swans, herons and our kingfisher who flies up and down both the lake and the stream and can be seen sitting on the railings near the end cabin, Kingfisher, so na...

Made inquiries in April (email and telephone) regarding a prospective booking in September 2017 and needs arising from my disability. Alas Nicky's 24 hour 100% response rate appears not to be applicable to those of us who are disabled - as three weeks later I've still had no response. 2017 and it would appear that for some service providers the...

Management response:

Hello Peter! I am very surprised to receive such a damning 'review' and one which strongly suggests I have not responded to your enquiry because of your disability! If you left a telephone message then I have not personally taken it off the ansafone, as I do respond to all messages - this is how I earn my income so...

Heron's nest is a wonderful log cabin. It is tastefully decorated and has absolutely everything you need for a very relaxing stay. We had the best week just relaxing in the cabin, sitting on the veranda and taking our Labrador for some lovely walks. Nicky is really lovely and we met Pete the grounds man - who was also very...

Stayed midweek for four nights. Lovely quiet location to chill out and enjoy the surrounding area. The lodge was excellent and furnished to a very high standard. Ideal for visiting places like Marlborough, Devised and Bath. We would certainly return to this lovely tranquil haven.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
The calendars show Friday to Friday prices though during June, July and August the cabins tend to run from Saturday to Saturday. Any other periods I am usually quite flexible. Please note that the nightly rate shown is for a week's stay. If you choose 4, 5 or 6 nights then the daily rate becomes cheaper so please ask for a quote and I will also accept some two night bookings depending on the time of year. Dogs are an additional £3 per dog per night.
