Interaction with guests
Avalon Cottage is a detached property within the owner's land, so we are always around to assist with any questions or issues which may arise. We do try to remain separate but many guests enjoy discussing with us what they are going to do or have done and many have become friends through visiting more than once. You will have your own keys to the property and can thus come and go when you wish - no curfews!

Perfect accommodation in an idyllic setting. Peter and Isobel couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We would recommend Avalon Cottage for a stay in the Somerset countryside.

The bungalow was immaculately clean. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The surrounding countryside is first class demanding your investigations.

An immaculately kept bungalow in close proximity to owners house, the owners were helpful and on hand but were not intrusive in any way. Quiet location with pub within walking distance though our favourite pub for meals was the Barrington Boar about 15 minutes drive away. National Trust properties nearby and East Lambrook gardens in the same road as bungalow....

How to get there
Airport: Bristol or Exeter: 60.0 km
Railway: Yeovil, Crewkerne, Chard or Taunton: 15.0 km
Ferry: Weymouth, Plymouth or Portsmouth: 60.0 km
From London and the South-East we advise using the A303, it's less than 2 hours from the M3 at Basingstoke. From the Midlands and North use the M5 to Taunton Junction 25, then A358 to Ilminster, then A303 to South Petherton. From further west head to Exeter then either use A30 then A303 to South Petherton roundabout, or M5 to Junction 25 and A358 to Ilminster, then A303 to South Petherton roundabout.

From South Petherton roundabout head for East Lambrook and once there fork left by the Rose and Crown pub, then turn left into Owl Street (SP West Lambrook and 'distillery and cider mill').
