Stayed here with friends for a visit to the Shakespeare theatre. Friendly welcome, off street parking, nice clean rooms with comfortable beds, well stocked bathrooms. And a nice full English for breakfast. Would stay here again.

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... More

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... More

Just spent another lovely couple of days at the Avonlea. Rob and Clare do everything to make sure your stay is memorable. Breakfast is excellent. Room is first class. All in all, a really lovely place to stop. Already have 3 trips planned for 2017 and looking forward to them already.

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... More

The owners were most accommodating, the beds comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Lovely to have proper tea made with tea leaves, not a bag. The B&B is an easy walk from the town and theatre, with good parking. The room had been newly decorated and although the bathroom was still awaiting renovation, the shower worked well with lovely hot water.

My wife and I and our daughter stayed at Avonlea Guest House several nights in August and had a lovely time. We’d a triple room on the top floor at the back - so very quiet and peaceful.

Avonlea was ideally situated for our trip to the theatre, a ten minute walk away. Our room was smartly decorated and spotlessly clean, and well stocked with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits. The bed was comfortable and we found it was an easy room in which to relax. The breakfast made for a good start to the day, with a... More

Enjoyed 2 nights at this beautiful B&B. You can see immediately that Clare and Rob have been in the hospitality business for a long time - our room had all the little extra inclusions that you like to have, and the breakfasts were delicious. The property had good off road parking, and was only 5 minute walk across the river... More

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.
