Furthermore, the airports of London Heathrow, Bristol, Southampton and Bournemouth are between one and one and a half hours drive away. The local village of Pewsey is less than two miles away and boasts a good supermarket, butcher, baker, petrol station, garage, Indian restaurant, cafes and pubs and it also has a railway station with a fast train service to London and the West Country.No smoking is allowed in the cabins but can be enjoyed outside under the cover of the veranda.Well behaved dogs welcome and verandas now have gates therefore secure for dogs and young children.

Location description from owner

The England region

We are very privileged to be living in an area steeped in tradition and history, with three World Heritage sites within an easy driving distance (Stonehenge, Avebury and Bath). We have many delightful towns and villages to explore, country houses, museums and gardens to visit and plenty of traditional pubs and excellent restaurants. We have a quick rail link to London from Pewsey Station less than five minutes drive away and you could plan a day/evening out in London to enjoy the sites and take in a theatre. Oxford, Salisbury and Bath are also within a reasonable drive away and offer good shopping, restaurants, theatres and interesting places to visit. Wiltshire has a variety of landscapes but we are very lucky to be living in this beautiful part of Wiltshire where we can enjoy the wide open spaces of the Marlborough Downs and the Pewsey Vale with its white horses or alternatively walk in the ancient Savernake Forest with all its dappled glades, meandering paths and beautiful old trees, some nearly 1000 years old. Then the Kennet and Avon canal is a different landscape altogether and you can enjoy long walks from Willowbank Lodges, through little villages with their quaint pubs or hire a boat for the day and go further afield.There really is something for everyone to enjoy in this part of the world.

Pewsey

Pewsey is a charming little village which is less than two miles from Willowbank Lodges and, although small, boasts a surprising number of ameneties. We have an excellent supermarket open seven days a week, a butcher, baker (delicious old fashioned donuts and lardy bread!) petrol station, post office, bank, gift shops, florists, art gallery and visitor centre, internet cafe and various coffee shops and pubs. In addition, we have an excellent award winning tennis club where Willowbank Lodges has membership for its guests and a leisure centre with a swimming pool, squash courts, etc.Slightly further afield, Marlborough boasts a large variety of restaurants and pubs, boutiques, antique shops, two fine churches and has the widest high street in the country. Now it is probably more famous for its International Jazz Festival which takes place in July (13th-15th this year) – a glut of musicians and singers, new bands and old favourites from all over the world, really an experience not to miss. Another music festival taking place this year (April 14th) just north of Marlborough is OneFest with Damon Albarn giving us a preview of his Dr Dee. Local artists open up their studios (Open Studios) to the public during four weekends in July so what with other local musical and artistic events, plenty for those who want to absorb a little local culture.For those crop circle enthusiasts, we are right in the midst of crop circle country and usually there are quite a number of sometimes quite spectacular crop circles to be found on the Downs or in the Vale, within 10 minutes drive of Willowbank Lodges.

“One of the best holiday lets I have stayed in.”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2012

Bullrush Lodge is very spacious, cosy and well equipped. I was surprised how big the lodge was inside. Lots of thought has been given to making it comfortable, even down to a blanket on the back of the sofa for those chilly evenings. Everything needed to enjoy our holiday was right there on hand. The scenery at Willowbank is beautiful and can easily be viewed from the comfort of seating provided on the veranda or whilst relaxing inside. The lake, it's various wildlife, and the walks in and around Willowbank meant you could just appreciate the surrounding area and not have to use the car if so wished. The location of Willowbank makes it easy to visit places like Devizes, Hungerford etc by car. You can combine sightseeing and relaxing whilst staying at Willowbank. It is definitely one of the best holidays I have had and I look forward to returning again in the future.

“A tranquil location with every comfort”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2012

We chose Willowbank Lodges because of the excellent standard of accommodation and tranquil seeting promised on their web page and we were not in any way disappointed. Our lodge was beautifully furnished and fully equipped and its waterside setting could not be beaten. We were particularly pleased to be able to walk up onto the Downs without needing to use our car at all. For supplies, we found the Co-op supermarket in Pewsey to be particularly good and there are plenty of welcoming village pubs round about for lunch or dinner. Willowbank will certainly be on our list for a return visit in the future.

“Luxury, peace and quiet and a home from home feel”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2012

Had a fantastic 3 night stay. The accommadation is modern, clean, warm, all mod cons and dog friendly. Location is fantastic, only a short distance from Salisbury and Marlborough, with Glastonbury and the Cheddar Gorge all within reach. Nicky, the owner is very efficient and very welcoming. The location of the lodges is very picturesque, overlooking what I think was a former trout lake. You are not overlooked by the other lodges, so felt very private and the balcony was great to make use of the late summer sun and early morning breakfast that we were very lucky to get! Lots of great foodie places around and excellent if your a National Trust member, as some superb sites and walks. Absolute bonus was free Wi-Fi ;)

“Lovely, Unique, Friendly, Spacious...what a great find in Wilts”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2012

We stayed at The Bullrush Cottage at Willowbanks Lodge in July and loved every minute. The cabins are spacious and perfectly kept. Large porches, comfy beds...all the comforts of home. Simply one of the best self-catering spots we've been in. When traveling with two young children thats so important!!

“Excellent accomodation in beautiful surroundings.”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2012

Have just spent a week in Bullrush lodge at Willowbank Lodges. It was a perfect way to enjoy peace and quiet and nature at it's best. I am disabled and mostly in a wheel chair so to find that I could freely move around with wide doorways, and a well equipped bathroom, very comfortable bed was more than I had hoped for. Nothing was to much trouble for Mrs Wood the owner to help me to enjoy my stay. The lodge was well equipped in the kitchen and we needed to take very little with us except food. The evenings were unfortunately very wet, but the lodge was very cosy and with comfortable sofa's it was easy to relax. My husband and I went out each day to explore the lovely Wiltshire countryside, good pubs for food when we ate out, but also Pewsey is very near with good shops to stock up when needed. We were very pleased with our stay at Willowbank Lodges, and look forward to returning in the future.
