Pewsey, Wiltshire, England
Willowbank Lodges nestle 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. <BR><BR>Renting the cabins together provides an ideal opportunity for family get-togethers or large groups where some people may want a bit of peace and quiet in their own cabin whilst also being in easy reach of the rest of the group.

We booked River Birch Lodge for a long weekend in September. The lodge was very comfortable. We enjoyed seeing the kingfishers most days .Lovely views. However in our 40 years of staying in 5 star self catering properties we have never been asked for a breakages deposit. This was paid 4 weeks before our stay and finally returned to us...

Management response:

I do remember this and felt cross with myself for letting it happen. I did of course apologise profusely to the guests but obviously they felt they had to say something online which is fair enough. It was a set of unfortunate circumstances plus my terrible memory during a very busy period. I wrote to these guests two weeks after...
