5 Star pet Friendly accommodation with everything you need for a relaxing break. Enclosed Garden ideal for your pet to explore, overlooking the countryside. Hillary and Nick are great hosts and go above and beyond to help out. I look forward to staying at this lovely cottage during Summer Months.

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Herons nest is a lovely quiet cottage within the owners grounds. It is well set out with comfortable fixtures and furnishings. It has patio doors opening out onto a fully enclosed (dog safe) south facing garden where you will be able to see deers morning and night. Also pheasants and numerous other birds. Royal Wootton Bassett is a couple of miles away with all the usual shops and supermarkets. Great base to explore Wiltshire, cotswolds, Somerset, Gloucestershire. Definitely recommend 5* lovely owners, lovely cottage.

“5 star dog friendly retreat!”

This cottage is like home from home. Very cosy, warm and relaxing. It's on the grounds of the owners home and they make you feel so welcome, greeting you like long lost friends. They have thought of everything. I can highly recommend this cottage especially for dog owners. The garden is safe and secure so you can allow your four legged friends out without having to constantly watch over them. It has stunning views. There are so many places to walk and much to see nearby. Unfortunately no pub within easy walking distance but an excellent Asian take away in Lyneham that delivers. I will put this on my favourites list and would recommend it to anyone. Hope to visit Herons Nest again sometime.

This is such a lovely cottage and clean.
The owners are very nice people and make you feel very welcome.
When looking for a quiet weekend away i spotted herons nest online and im glad i did . The weather was lovely and we spent our weekend soaking up the sun in the beautiful country side it was heaven. Hilary the owner left some home made scones for us with butter and jam they where amazing.
The jack deer always made an appearance late evening for us in the field across from the cottage. Make sure if you have some take binoculars if you love looking at the wildlife .

“Comfy, clean and peaceful.”
Reviewed 14 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had a really warm welcome from Hillary. The nest was just perfect for our short break. The setting was lovely with country walks on the doorstep. Enjoyed watching the deer from the breakfast bar in the early mornings and stargazing through the velux windows in the bedroom at night. Just perfect.
