My girlfriend and I stayed at Avonlea House for one night back in May, and we had a fantastic experience.

Jackie and John were incredibly welcoming. Jackie briefly explained the ins and outs of staying at the house, offered some helpful advice when we mentioned we were heading into town about how to get there, and then left us with a welcome pack and some discount cards for restaurants in town.
The house and room were very comfy, beautifully decorated and immaculately kept.

It's well located; a twenty minute walk into town, and only 5 minutes to the Old Sarum castle which is also worth a visit. It was only a short drive to Stonehenge too.

Breakfast the next day was again wonderful. A good range of choices was available and was served promptly even when my order was changed at the last minute.
'Checking Out' was straight forward as we simply handed our key over.

I would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: Room 3 at the rear of the house, was exceptionally kept and no noise from outside or through the wal...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Avonlea House. Jackie is the perfect host and her accommodation is immaculate. Our room was spacious and beautifully furnished and breakfast was yummy! The bus stop was conveniently located out the front and took us directly into the city centre. Salisbury is a delightful town with many good restaurants and a great shopping centre. Would recommend the walking tour of the city and learn about its medieval history.
A big thank you to Jackie for making our stay such an enjoyable one.

Room Tip: Front room has king size bed and large ensuite.

Our hostess could not do enough for us, and I enjoyed the comfiest bed for a long time. The breakfast was delicious and I was able to find out the best places to eat in the area, which are only a short walk away in the centre of Salisbury. I'd actually like to move in!

We spent 2 nights at Avonlea House in May, 2014. The house is beautiful and our hosts, Jackie & John were outstanding. As others have said, you can walk to town. Very charming town! Food was great and there are many things to see in the area. If we ever have a chance to go to Great Britain again, we will stay here.

We stayed here after visiting Stonehenge and we are so glad we did. The owners of this property are very hospitable! The room was immaculate and the breakfast was hearty. The b&b is a short walk to the city center. Thank you for a terrific stay!

What a nice visit! Great room with a true king-sized bed (!), wonderful view and a fantastic breakfast. Close enough to town center to walk in and take bus back which drops you off right in front. Also close to Old Sarum... Great hosts also made the visit super enjoyable !
