I have negotiated a corporate membership with our excellent Pewsey Tennis Club (less than two miles away) for Willowbank Lodges' guests. This LTA affiliated, friendly club has six floodlit macadam courts and our guests have use of the courts during the day and also in the evenings at the weekend. Coaching is also available. Full details to be found in the cabin information file.
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY GUESTS' COMMENTS SO FAR:
'We spent a fantastic weekend at the end of September staying at the cabin that looks directly out over the lake (River Birch). The setting was idyllic -- how relaxing to wake up to the sound of birds and the trickle of water, rather than London traffic! Had a great time exploring Avebury and Marlborough on Saturday, and a lovely leisurely walk along the canal near the cabins before leaving on Sunday. It's not a part of the country we know very well and we would definitely like to spend more time here.
The cabin has been very thoughtfully equipped -- everything you might possibly need -- and the bed was bliss -- one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. Another joy was the bathroom (really good shower and big tub). Overall, the rooms were really spacious, which added to the feeling of comfort and relaxation. The only downside was the traffic leaving London. Next time we'll leave home earlier and stay for longer!

What a find! We wanted a relaxing break, near a few sights, a place with modern comforts. River Birch was all this and more. The bed was wonderful, kitchen well equipped and the bath tub – huge! (lots of hot water). Waking every morning to the sounds of the country and taking our coffee on the decking watching the various bird ‘families’ was enjoyable. Mr Swan was particularly amusing, rushing from one side of the lake to the other in his bid to protect his babies. Had a lovely day in Bath and would highly recommend the thermal spa rooftop pool at sunset. Already planning our next break.

An absolute haven! This is the ideal place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. I was honoured to be so close and part of all the birds with their babies – ducks, coots and the beautiful swans. The accommodation is absolutely fantastic – thanks to Nicky, she has certainly made it homely and such a high standard. Whilst writing this, I am sitting listening to the sounds of nature – music to my ears! Thank you Nicky!!
Cindy, Cheltenham (HERON’S NEST)
We all had such a great time, from the moment we stepped in, it felt like home. The beds were comfortable, the sofas were wonderful – there was not one thing I did not like!!!!
Laurel Spencer, Epsom, Surrey (DRAGONFLY)
A wonderful holiday in a glorious location. A real home from home. Thank you for all the thoughtful touches.
Ann Gustard and Daniel Angel, Cambridge (BULLRUSH)
A very pleasant and enjoyable stay. The cabin is very well appointed with everything we needed and was very much a home from home. The location is particularly tranquil with the river nearby and quiet rural location. Truly a great place and will be sure to recommend the cabins as the ideal getaway to those after a relaxing country retreat.
Matt - Scotland (DRAGONFLY)
Just wanted to say how great it is at Willowbanks. The setting is superb and the Lodge just so comfortable. Everything about the accommodation was perfect. We were obviously blessed with great weather – we’ve done a lot of walking and what a great location next to the canal. The sun rising in front of Dragonfly was just the icing on the cake.
We did a bit of recycling, both would have been happy to do more – maybe some instructions about this would facilitate more. So, many thanks – we will recommend to friends.
Julie and Paul, Nottingham (DRAGONFLY)
Thanks for a lovely stay in the River Birch log cabin. It is set in such a gorgeous location, everything we have needed has been right here. Nicky has really done an impressive job with decorating them. We enjoyed the peace and quiet so much we decided to spend an entire day indoors. Five stars! Thank you. We will come again, for longer!!
