Spacious self-contained log cabin in idyllic setting on edge of Newtown Common with lovely walks close-by. Easy access into Newbury, the M4 and close to Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) and Watership Down. The cabin is cosy and warm in winter and with patio doors onto it's own terrace. You'll be disturbed only by birds or a passing deer! Sorry no pets and no smoking inside the cabin.

The space

It's proximity to Newbury with all its amenities and yet in a blissfully quiet, country setting. Watership Down and beautiful Downland walks are within about five miles. Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey!) is a five minute drive away. You can even visit Stonehenge in about an hour's drive or Wayland's Smithy long barrow. There are local walks across Newtown Common directly from the cabin.

Guest access

It's own south facing terrace. Beautiful walks on The Common.

Gretta was very friendly and welcoming and the cabin was charming and comfortable. The setting is very pretty and quiet but within 10 minutes of all facilities.

The lodge feels like it is in a remote location in a wooded area, but in fact is a very short distance from Newbury and the major traffic links. It has everything you need including a well equipped kitchen area. Very helpful host, highly recommended.

Super place to stay, perfectly as described. It has a real 'get away from it all' feel about it, even though it is very near to travel networks. The cabin is a wonderful place to unwind and I'd highly recommend it.
