    All the facilities you could need - oven, washing machine and an airer and iron/ ironing board. Nice shower room and comfortable bed. Ideal for a weeks stay to enable you to explore the local area. Very happy we chose the Log Cabin!

    It was far bigger than we were expecting. Lovely comfy bed with modern en suite, The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you might need. The enclosed patio out front was fantastic for morning coffee. It’s in a very peaceful location but not far from the local shops, towns and attractions. The owners are very friendly and keep the whole place looking clean and pretty. Please try to ignore any negative comments about this property, they are unfounded!

    Thank you for your appreciation , nice to know you enjoyed your stay here . Property Owner

    We left after 3 days and would never recommend this cabin to anyone.

    As a holiday home owner I make sure I am available if guests need anything or have any issues during their stay, if you had contacted me or Sykes Cottages whilst you were in the property I would have rectified any issues. I was very shocked to receive this review, the property is thoroughly cleaned between visits, and we have always received fabulous reviews. Property Owner

    We booked in for a week with our 2 Beagles, and I was expecting something rather basic as we were allowed to have the dogs with us. However, when we arrived, we went into the cabin which had all of the facilities needed, it was super clean, and very comfortable. There was also air conditioning which was fab in such hot weather, a washing machine and a decent sized fridge freezer. The Proprietors are lovely people and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

About the location


Swindon 6.7 miles; Malmesbury 10.7 miles; Bath 31 miles.

Situated at the southern end of the Cotswold Hills, in rural northern Wiltshire and close to the border with Gloucestershire, the friendly market town of Royal Wootton Bassett can be found. The town was granted Royal patronage in 2011, due to the part it played in the repatriation of military personnel who sadly lost their lives serving their country overseas. It boasts a weekly market and offers a good selection of local shops and inns, providing an ideal touring base from which to explore the attractions of Wiltshire and beyond. The town is close to the historic Lydiard Park, Bowood and Longleat, with the ancient sites of Avebury and Stonehenge nearby. The coastal resorts of Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea are just over an hour's drive for anyone wanting to dip their toes in the sea. Visit the charming town of Malmesbury and the Cotswold Water Park and with the historic cities of Bath, Oxford and Salisbury all easily accessible, this area really makes an interesting touring centre at any time of the year.

Note: No children.

Note: This property was previously called The Chalet.
