Parking was available outside the accomodation. On arrival a smiling face welcomed us, showed us...

Lovely guest house. Rob made is feel very welcome. When we returned to the car park after an evening out, Clare gave us the third degree in the car park, as it wasn't obvious we were guests. Perhaps a sticker for the windscreen during a stay would help. Our top floor room was spacious and the bed was lovely and...

Clare and Rob made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed a very comfortable king-size bed, a lovely en-suite with a roomy walk-in shower & with beautiful toiletries - and some delicious breakfasts! There are parking spaces at the front and rear of the property, and from 'Avonlea', it's just a few minutes walk into town and to the RSC...

Two night stay in late Oct 16. Booking on line very easy and helpful advice offered. Clean, comfortable room , if a little on the small side, but perfectly acceptable. Efficient and modern en suite but bedroom would benefit from a little updating of the general decor which is a little dreary. Excellent hosting - nothing too much trouble and...

Located to the south of the river just five minutes' walk from the town centre and it's attractions including the RSC and Shakespeare's Birthplace. Avonlea has eight bedrooms with comfy beds in well-appointed light and airy rooms. We offer a superb full English breakfast using quality local produce.
