About Hillary Walter
We are a family of 5 who have have recently renovated and extended our home and cottage. We love being outside and enjoy gardening. We have a small holding consisting of a variety of chickens, pigs, sheep and two ponies!! I enjoy making jams, chutneys, cakes etc. Nick (my husband) has just bought a Smoker for fish and meat and has been experimenting with that! Understandably, our friends call us Tom and Barbara!!
Hillary Walter purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Hillary Walter chose Chippenham
We bought Burrington because of its location. We are situated down a very quiet lane surrounded by fields with a view of Tockenham wood, which has Tockenham Lake within it. You could hardly believe we're only 2 miles from Royal Wootton Bassett and therefore have easy access to the M4 - which makes Heron's Nest an easy to get to retreat!!
What makes this Cottage unique
There are plenty of wonderful things to experience whilst staying at Heron's Nest. There are wonderful walks in and around us. Plenty of fabulous and interesting towns and cities to visit, Bath, Oxford, Marlborough, Bristol, Castle Combe and the Cotswolds are all within an hours drive The property itself is well equipped - I have tried to create a home from home kitchen. The sitting room has all the normal appliances one would expect plus a variety of games.

Cute holiday home
Really lovely place to stay. Very clean & comfortable. Very cute! Loads to do from a central location. Gorgeous views from the cottage, we even saw deer in the field outside the garden. Highly recommend.
A lovely cottage style house with amazing views
We was welcomed by Hilary on arrival to show us the house, and she kindly made us scones, we just needed to get away from london for a couple of days and this was the perfect place for it!
My partner and i are not drivers so was a little bit worried about getting around but has great transport links near by so we was able to get a bus into royal wooton basset for a few drinks and a curry, we was also able to get the bus into chippenham and get the train to bath which was also lovely, a very nice a quiet location for that perfect little break away.
Thanks so much Hilary we hope to come again in the near future. :)

A great home away from home!
We really enjoyed staying at Herons Nest. It was really close to everything we wanted to see in the Cotswolds. It was clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed watching the horses in the morning.
Hillary is very helpful if you need anything.
Even though you are in close proximity to the main house, our privacy was totally respected.
I highly recommend this property!
Thanks Hillary for a great stay!
