This is my favorite kind of B & B: actually someone’s home into which you have been invited (rather than a “business” or purpose-built B & B). Antoinette’s breakfast was one of the best in 6 weeks of travel in the British Isles. Instead of a regular fry (with bacon and sausage, etc.), her “fry” was a combination of potatoes and veggies to go with eggs. Delicious. And she baked a fresh loaf of bread every morning—it was to DIE FOR, and breakfast was a social experience: all at the same time, on a big shared table. I’m one who dislikes little individual tables. In addition, Antoinette was incredibly helpful when we discovered we’d lost our American Express card and our phone didn’t work. She allowed us to use her Skype to contact AmEx in the U.S.(it was a LENGTHY call), AND was wonderfully gracious when we left all our clean underwear behind (YES!), and had to come back to pick it up the day after we’d left!. Her home is small—one en-suite, and two other rooms that share a bathroom. But clean and comfortable. And close enough for a lovely walk to Avebury (circle, pub, Averbury Manor, etc.). So glad we stayed with her.
