Interaction with guests
I always like to try and greet my guests and show them around Heron's Nest. The good thing about being on site is that we are generally always here. Therefore able to answer any questions about the area or the cottage.

About the neighbourhood
Heron's Nest is located 3 miles from Royal Wootton Bassett which is our local town. We are nestled into the base of the Ridgeway, surrounded by fields. There are wonderful walks and plenty of fabulous, historic, places of interest and beautiful towns and cities to visit. Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Oxford, Marlborough, Bristol, Castle Combe and the Cotswolds are all within an hours drive.
How to get there
The address is: Burrington,Heron’s Nest,Trow Lane,Lyneham,Wiltshire SN15 4DL. Take the Royal Wootton Bassett road to Lyneham. On your left hand side you will pass the Wiltshire Country Club, then an abattoir - with a sign for 'handsome butchers!” Then carry on round the corner and you will see a small cross roads - turn right down Trow Lane. Go down Trow Lane, there is a wood on the right hand side and a field on the left. There are two properties on the left, one is Burrington (the cream/yellow one) and our neighbours are Woodlands. The sign for Burrington is attached to a gum tree at the end of our tarmac drive with the wooden post and rail running down it. Look for the flower trough by the beech hedge and drive down the drive and you’ll see Heron’s Nest in front of you. Parki...
