I stayed just for a night and it is a very cute place, ancient but very well preserved. The old house keeps the windows and stairs, so have it in mind if you are not up to going upstairs. Rooms are big enough, although the beds are a bit soft I must say. Breakfast is not included, but for 9extra... More

Spent the night whilst visiting friends in the area. Very reasonably priced with friendly staff, well maintained bedroom with TV, shower, fridge, coffee/tea and enjoyable full breakfast in the morning. Very good value.

A friend of mine is staying temporarily, while waiting for her house to be ready, well what can I say - a warm welcome from Stuart, help is on hand if needed, a good place to be, I really hope he is appreciated by the owners and they feel he is a complete asset to Avalon House.

We reserved 2 rooms several weeks ago at this place and received email acknowledgment. When we turned up last night (25th May) the surly individual refused to honour it saying it was full.
