What really makes a good B&B are the hosts and they don’t come much better than Frances and Julian. They are friendly without being nosy or annoying and nothing is too much trouble. There are also nice touches such as a glass of wine when I get in from work (I am in the SW on business a lot).

All of which almost makes one forget the comfortable bed, proper pillows, quality bed linen and towels and a great cooked breakfast. So much better than any number of hotels I have stayed in. Which is why I stay at Avalon House again and again.
