If you find yourself needing to or planning to stay anywhere near Devizes then you MUST stay at Avalon Lodge. The rooms are luxurious, the hosts delightful, the atmosphere extremely relaxing and the breakfasts amazing. Added to this the close at hand canal walks together with the many boats and locks make it an all round fabulous retreat.

My husband and I had a lovely weekend away staying at the Avalon Lodge. Great Hosts. Lovely Lodge. Would stay here again if we were in the area. Hosts recommended we eat at The George and Dragon in Rowde. If you love fish this is the place to eat in the area.

Greeted with lovely cup of tea and biscuits. Great room at the back with balcony and lovely view. Good breakfast what more can you want. Nick & Jenny very friendly but not intrusive. Will be going back when we are in the area again.

We would definitely return if we were to be nearby again. It's situated such that one can easily walk to Devizes (on the road or via the very impressive flight of canal locks) and to nearby Rowde, which has an excellent pub, The George and Dragon. Comfy beds, super soft towels etc and some very nice touches - dressing gowns,... More

What a fantastic B&B. We received a lovely warm welcome from Nick and Jenny (whom we have stayed with in their previous B&B). After a much needed cup of tea, we were shown to a lovely large bedroom with wonderful views to the hills in the distance. The furnishings and decor are lovely and the quality of the towels and...

My daughter and I both had business to do in the area and we set up shop at Jenny and Nicks for the week before Christmas. It was our home away from home.

arriving on a dark, wet winter's night, it was lovely to be welcomed in to a warm house with everything we could have wished for - tea, coffee, snacks, warm bed, wonderful linen and towels. The view out the window the next morning was frosty, but the surrounds, like the house, showed care and attention to detail. Even as vegetarians,... More
