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.

The amenities available are very extensive,including bed for the dog, more than we have ever received at other properties. Also provided - eggs, bread, drinks and much more so that we didn't have to shop at all until after following breakfast. Perfect for elderly mother with downstairs bedroom. Very good value for money. Highly recommended.

                                                                                                      Excellent location, Lucy's Cottage is a cosy well-equipped base from which to explore Wells.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We enjoyed our time in Wells, with Lucy's Cottage proving to be an ideal base less than 200 metres from the end of Cathedral Green. For much of the time we were able to just leave the car parked up and forget about it. Access was much easier than anticipated, with the private, off street, parking much valued. The large kitchen is one of the best equipped that we have experienced and the property was warm throughout and readily maintained room temperature. A minor house-keeping task is required on small areas of the grouting on the bathroom tiles and the second from the top tread of the stairs will require some attention as it seemed to give a little when going upstairs. Thank you to Sandra & Nigel for the use of your cottage. We would recommend Lucy's Cottage to anyone looking for somewhere convenient to stay in Wells and would hope to stay there when we next go to Wells. This is our first experience of OwnersDirect which seems to work very smoothly. The only downside appears to be that OwnersDirect and HomeAway its parent organisation seem to want to fill my inbox with unrequested junk mail even though I have ticked the appropriate box for no such items.
