Our Location

Set in a rural location just a mile and walking distance of the charming historic market town of Devizes, Avalon Lodge lies at the very heart of Wiltshire, a beautiful county of great diversity. Avalon Lodge itself is located almost exactly one mile from the centre of Devizes on the A342 road towards Chippenham.

We are situated within walking distance of the famous flight of locks at Caen Hill on the Kennet and Avon Canal. A walk from these locks into Devizes Wharf is a must on a nice sunny day. There are two Public Houses, both offering good food, within fifteen minutes’ walk.

A bus service (33) operates from immediately outside the property and runs regularly between Chippenham, Calne and Devizes.
