Peter and Julie are incredibly gracious hosts. The view from the back is spectacular--garden, sea, church. If you like porridge, they ask you let them know the night before--it's a bit like crėme brûlée. They were helpful navigating to local sites, as well. Comfortable, well-appointed room. They even provided gluten free biscuits for our arrival as well as GF options... More

Top quality. We received a friendly welcome, whilst the accommodation is both spacious and impeccably maintained. Loved the dining room, where breakfast is served. A great example of what a good B and B should aspire to.

Peter and Julie's great welcome set the scene for a wonderful stay. The room was spacious, well decorated and immaculate overall and topped off with the most amazing views of Tintagel Island. The only slight negative was the size of the bathroom, which was tiny but perfectly formed! The breakfasts are fantastic both in quality and variety and the situation... More

Amazingly well run B&B The owners know your name when they greet you and make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. The place is spotless and feels spacious and uncluttered, though it's not very big. Comfortable bedding and linen. Very small shower room and water pressure was a problem. Wide selection of teabags coffee with different cookies, brownies... More

My wife and I stayed at The Avalon for 2 days and seriously considered postponing the next leg of our trip and forfeiting $200 in train tickets to stay another day--our stay was that perfect. There were only two other guests in the house with us so we felt like we had the place to ourselves, which was nice, but... More
