Avebury Life B&B
Ranked #2 of 5 Avebury B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Avebury Life is one for the few B&B's near Avebury henge. It is run by Antoinette who was very friendly and helpful. The main attraction was the amazing collection of crystals which are located around the house and in the bedrooms, and the collection of books.

Thoroughly recommended.

I stayed here for two nights with friends as we were walking the Ridgeway and wanted to explore the area before we set off. It's only about twenty minutes to walk to Avebury which should be nothing if you are fit enough to be attempting the Ridgeway and you can get a bus from Avebury to the start of the trail (just ask the driver where to let you off). The landlady is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. If you are interested in New Age stuff then this B&B is for you. If not, it's still a great place to stay. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean. Breakfast kitchen is small but well stocked. Compared to some of the places to stay in Avebury (oh yes, you can be as spiritual as you like as long as you are willing to pay for it!) you couldn't get better value for money. A highlight for me was being woken by the birds at 5 am and watching the beautiful, misty view. Very rural. Lovely. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: If you can get a room upstairs it's more useful for getting a phone signal and the views are nic...

I stayed one night back in April, and felt very peaceful here. Antoinette is a very special person and we had some interesting discussions. I was in the single room, which is compact and basic, but perfectly adequate, and the shower room next to it was fine. There was internet connection via a modem in the bedroom.Lots of interesting books to browse. Lovely to stay somewhere with no television. It's about a 10-15 minute peaceful walk from the middle of the village. Very good value, will be happy to go back.

The location is excellent, down the street from the Avebury stone circle and Windmill Hill. Quiet and comfortable location. Great place to meet up with metaphysically-minded kindred spirits. Small library on local books available and Antoinette will do everything possible to make sure you are comfortable.

Upstairs shared bathroom is smaller (small shower), as was the single room. But, it was clean and very comfortable.

Nothing fancy about the house or the host, but both were simply charming!! The house may be a bit small but was very clean and comfortable, and Antoinette was very helpful and prepared a fabulous breakfast. She is both knowledgeable and passionate about the area. I had a wonderful chat with German guests in the morning. Although I stayed only one night, I left with the feeling that there was something very special about Avebury Life B&B and would highly recommend a stay here to anyone who is looking for a more personal experience of the mysteries of Avebury.
