I don't usually bother reviewing places I've stayed, but after visiting this beautiful B&B I felt compelled to write a glowing report.
As a vegetarian of 30 years, I found it thrilling to stay in such a delightful house in the middle of a stone circle. Even though I am from the UK I had never once visited Avebury. My partner booked us a room for three nights at the Lodge for our anniversary weekend and it was perhaps the most relaxing three nights I have had in the last few years. The bedrooms were beautiful, clean, comfortable, enormous soft beds, hand made curtains and bedding (we discovered after complimenting them to the host), and an exquisite breakfast to top it of. We were asked what time we would like breakfast which was lovely, as most places specify a time! We also got to decide what wanted and my husband arranged prior to our visit to have coconut milk instead of dairy which was a lovely surprise as most places don't accommodate for requests like that. Sleeping in the Lodge was lovely as we woke up to views of the stone circle and were 'twit twood' to bed by a hooting owl and the peaceful sounds of the country.
All in all we had a wonderful trip and we can't thank the Lodge enough for making our weekend so special. We have already booked a room for Christmas and will be returning in hope of a winter wonderland!
