Things to do in Glastonbury

Glastonbury was once an island in the reed swamps that covered the entire Mendip District. Today, it sits high above the plains of the Somerset Levels.

- Glastonbury Tor is the highest point of Glastonbury, and it is not difficult to see its islander roots as it rises above the fields. From the summit of the Tor the views of the surrounding areas are spectacular, and the Tor is a popular tourist attraction. The Chalice Well, a natural spring, flows from the foot of the Tor.

- Myths and Legend: The town of Glastonbury is entrenched in New Age culture due to its connection with the legendary King Arthur, the Holy Grail and Joseph of Arimathea. The graves of King Arthur and Guinevere were said to be in the grounds of the Lady Chapel of Glastonbury Abbey , and Joseph of Arimathea allegedly brought Jesus to Glastonbury as a child, returning with a cup of his blood (the Holy Grail) after his death.

-Glastonbury Abbey:, as well as having incredible architecture, is supposedly the location of the Holy Grail. Historians date the Abbey to the 7th century, however many believe that it was built in the 1st century in order to house the Holy Grail. Regardless of its true date, it is the oldest Christian church built above ground in the world and can be seen from your Glastonbury rental accommodation, as well as being well worth a close up visit.

- Shopping:: The town centre is a short distance from your holiday cottage in Glastonbury. At its heart is the octagonal market cross where the main streets of the town converge. Here you can sample the delights of the town’s cafes and independent shops, as well as the market, which is held every Tuesday, and the farmer’s market, which is held on the 4th Saturday of every month.

- Festival:: The name Glastonbury is inextricably linked with the Glastonbury Festival. Since it first began in 1970, it has grown to become the pinnacle of British music festivals. If you want to visit the area at the end of June, it is wise to book your holiday farmhouse accommodation in Glastonbury well in advance as the festival attracts tens of thousands of revellers to the area. The festival has music stages, theatres, cinema tents, children’s areas and relaxation zones, and is a major event on the New Age calendar.

The Weather in Glastonbury

Your Glastonbury holiday accommodation makes the perfect base for you to explore the countryside or to shelter by the fire from the weather. The climate is temperate, often being mild and wet. Average winter temperatures drop to just 1 or 2oC but average summer temperatures are a much more comfortable 25oC.

Chris and Jan responded to our messages very quickly prior to our arrival, and they were very welcoming and friendly hosts who made us feel very comfortable on their lovely farm. The atmosphere was very relaxed and were able to interact with the animals at any time and the children in particular had so much fun with the goats, sheep, ducks, geese, chickens, rabbit and dogs, especially playing with Peter the sheep dog who never tired of chasing his frisbee... The accomodation was very clean and well maintained and was very well equipped for us to make breakfast and dinner every day (Chris and Jan very kindly even gave us some fresh eggs from the ducks and chickens). The location is amazing - great views from the farm, and well placed to easily access all the main places of interest in the area. We would highly recommend staying at Sticklinch Farm!

Lovely owners very welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend Rose Cottage to anyone looking to stay in Glastonbury. Great location, we will be back for another visit.

The hosts, Mick and Maddie were very friendly and gave us privacy. There was a bottle of local cider and juices awaiting when we arrived which was very much appreciated after a long car journey. The bed was very comfortable, best few nights sleep we've had in a long time.
