The space

Our house is just under Glastonbury Tor and has great views south across the Somerset levels. It is very peaceful and away from the main road. On the ground floor, we have a large double bedroom with french doors leading out onto its own patio. Bathroom (shower) adjoining. The price is for 1 or 2 people. If you bring a child or 3rd person we have also a single room next to the main room for £35 per night. The bathroom is accessed via the double room. TV/dvd and wifi available. Bed linen and towels provided. NB. If you wish to book both rooms please enter 3 persons.
You are welcome to use our kitchen to make tea and coffee or breakfast etc and sit out on the patio to admire the view! We have owls and badgers in the wood adjoining. We are literally a few steps away from the gate that will lead you up to the Tor. It's best if you can come by car and there is plenty of room for you to park in our driveway. If you come by bus, we are about a 15 minute walk from the town centre. The pub is much closer! The nearest train station is Castle Cary and a taxi will take about 25 minutes to bring you here. Glastonbury is full of interesting shops and cafes/restaurants. Vegetarians are well catered for. There is often live music going on in the evenings. We are about 45 minutes by car to Bath and Bristol and Wells is about a 15 minutes drive. We look forward to seeing you and swapping travel stories!

Hilary was a wonderful host and the room really was like a paradise retreat. You will need a car to get to Glastonbury but it is a short drive.

It was a fantastic place to stay. Hilary and John were great hosts, very friendly and knowledgeable about their area. The room was great, spacious and clean and warm. The bathroom was excellent and we even did some catch-up washing while there.

From the moment we arrived Johnny made us feel welcome with a coffee and a chat. We were asked to treat the house as our own and we were very generously looked after including the delivery of croissants for breakfast. The house certainly matches the description on the Airbnb site…
