How to get there
Airport: Bristol: 31.1 mi
Railway: Swindon: 9.3 mi
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.
