Avoncliff Halt is right under the beautiful aqueduct carrying the Kennet and Avon canal over the rail line, a great access point to the lovely footpaths and cycle routes along the canal. The historic local pub, the Cross Guns, is a Freehouse serving Box Hill Brewery Ales, and has a lovely garden down to the river. An alternative for refreshment is The Mad Hatter Tearooms.
A very handy source of information is www.avoncliff.co.uk which has everything you need to know about the village, as well as information on places to stay.
Bradford on Avon Tourist Information Centre (T: 01225 865797) are also a fount of knowledge on Avoncliff and other places to visit and stay around the area.
Residents of the tiny hamlet of Avoncliff have really taken the station to their heart. Members of the community keep the station neat and trim, and although there is little space to work with to create station gardens, have established colourful planters. They organised a wonderful event for the 100th anniversary of the halt, with all the villagers dressed in Edwardian costume, and later designed their own shelter for the southbound platform. This had been long desired and campaigned for by the community group, and brewer and landlord Ken Roberts of the Cross Guns Inn even organised a special brew for the opening ceremony!
