Hi Ged, thank you so much for this wonderful review, we really appreciate you taking the time. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and glad you found things to your expectation.

I booked Avondale Guest House based on the fact that it got great reviews, and I can certainly say that those reviews are correct! Tony and Pearl are just the type of people who should be running a guest house. They're friendly and outgoing (but not at all overbearing or "pushy"), and they themselves enjoy the outdoor activities that draw...

Hi Wes, thank you so much for such wonderful review. It was great to meet you and we were very impressed with the miles you put in on the fells, you certainly seemed to take advantage of the fantastic weather while you were here.

Tony and Pearl gave me such a warm welcome. My bedroom was extremely comfortable and 'spotlessly' clean. I am very particular and could not fault them on one issue or item. The homemade muesli with fresh fruit salad was delicious and very welcome after overindulging on scones and other unhealthy beverages! It was the little touches that made it -...

Hi 'PlusTimes', thank you so much for your review. We are delighted to have read this today, makes our day when someone has enjoyed their stay so much.

From Australia, my wife and I are currently on a 7 week circumnavigation of GB. Have been staying at hotels/B&Bs for over 2 weeks now and can honestly say with conviction that this was our best experience yet; and there's been some good ones to compare with. Our hosts John and Pearl displayed a true generosity of spirit with their...

Hi 'Gookster1' Thank you so much for this lovely review. It was great to meet you and hear about your travel plans, a little jealous if we are honest. Our industry has become very competitive, with the lines between Hotels, B&B's and Guest Houses becoming very blurred, we like to think that we can all offer something a little special....

We stayed at Avondale over the Easter weekend. Again we felt right at home. We were sad to leave! Breakfast was tasty. We tried Pearl's breakfast muesli for the first time and it was delicious. We'll be back again soon. Hayley

Another perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city! This is the 3rd stay at Avondale and we love it more with every visit.
