More than just a place to stay


We all know that when you book somewhere there is, at least a little, apprehension about whether you have chosen the right place!

Pictures can be misleading (although hopefully not the ones you see here!), and descriptions may be over the top, so what is the best way to judge? More and more people are using Trip Advisor, an independent travel guide with real reviews from real people to record their views of places. 

Guest who have stayed here and at our previous B&B (Angel House, Ludlow) often write in our Guest Book and leave a review on Trip Advisor. This has resulted in us receiving a Certificate of Excellence in every year we have been registered with Trip Advisor and meant for a long time we were the top rated B&B in Ludlow and consistently within the top 5 for all of Shropshire and Avalon Lodge is the top B&B in Devizes (September 2016) and in the top 3% of 483 B&Bs in Wiltshire.

Hopefully, those reviews will give you the reassurance to book in confidence but in addition you might like to read some of the comments left by visitors in our Guest Book:

However, the best way to judge is to come and find out for yourself. 

We look forward to welcoming you and helping you have a great break. If you have any questions or want to book then do contact us directly at stay@avalonlodge.co.uk.

"Great B and B , amazing host , food fantastic , we will be back "
Mr & Mrs Rogers, Dorst - September 2015
"We initially stayed in July for a 2 day getaway birthday treat . After searching the web around the area and reading the reviews we decided to give Avalon Lodge a whirl. Wow are we glad we did!! We just been back again, now in August -- verdict just the same as below. We stayed for 2 nights in July and we had a great time -- even a birthday card and chocolates! You wont get this attention and thoughtfulness anywhere else even at the most expensive 5* hotels. Breakfast was lovely and relaxed, with an abundance of choice including local produce and home made choices. There is a lot to do in the area and we knew its good for gentle or vigorous cycling or walking from here or nearby places, especially the Kennet and Avon canal in either direction . I.E. Up the famous lock flight to Devizes and on or or in the opposite direction to beautiful Bradford on Avon, Dundas aqueduct or even Bath. From booking to leaving Nick and Jenny gave us a welcoming and enjoyable experience. Quite exceptional. The bedrooms and bathrooms well equipped and immaculate. Even cycle storage if you want it. I really was most reluctant to leave this feedback because I wanted keep it a secret, to ensure that we could always stay when we wanted to !! But I just had to, they deserve the praise. Well done Nick and Jenny! We will be back, Lance and Jeannie . Stayed August 2014"

"My friend Steven and I had a wonderful stay. The room and bath were very clean and well appointed. The hospitality was very warm and gracious. Breakfast was amazing. Thank you so much."
Mr Ernie Needham, Newton NJ USA - August 2014
"Without doubt the best Band B We have ever stayed in, wonderful room, breakfast and hosts"
Mr Collier, Surrey - June 2014
"Thanks to Nick and Jenny for a pleasant staying, My husband and I were spoiled since we arrived until we left. The level of details everywhere s wonderful and delicate, makes you feel special and at home. Our room called "Tranquility" was spot on, impressively clean and tidy, and nothing less to say about a wonderful breakfast: fresh and plenty and they've even got my favourite jam, lovely music in the background and friendly chats! What a pity that we jus stayed for one night, though. Looking forward coming back soon. Highly recommend"

"A fabulous relaxing stay in a beautifull B&B. Nick and Jenny were the perfect hosts and we cannot wait to return later in the year. Avalon Lodge is also perfectly situated for exploring the beautiful Wiltshire countryside."
Mrs Alderson, Shropshire - February 2014

Mr G, London - May 2013
