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.

Glastonbury is just 23 miles from Bristol International Airport, which receives internal and international flights. The nearest train station is 10 miles away in Castle Cary and there are bus routes connecting Glastonbury with local towns as well as Bristol and Plymouth. Car hire and taxi services are available.

Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings.

4 of 5
Stayed here for a week in September, lovely small cottage in the deep countryside. The lanes around here are like a maze. Very clean well looked after property, looking at the visitor book it gets alot of use, so it must be hard to keep it looking good. The bed was comfy, if on the small side, we are used to kingsize. The bathroom is adequate, with a shower over the bath and plenty of very hot water. The outside space is very nice, we had breakfast outside most mornings and we were joined by the Long Tailed Tits. The kitchen has a few shortcomings for a property of this price. We found ourselves using the diswasher nearly everday due to lack of plates and cups, the utensils are basic and sadly lacking in quality, however it didn't spoil our holiday. The owners were friendly and live on site, they do go past your house most days to get to the vineyard, but they don't bother you and most of the time we didn't know they were there. Overall I would recommend this cottage, if you like the deep countryside, yet its only 2 or 3 miles into the lovely city of Wells, this is perfect. I'm only giving it four stars, because I feel that for nearly £600 in mid September I expect better equipment and a bigger bed!!

A wonderful, well-equipped country cottage in the beautiful Mendip hills

5 of 5
We loved the cosy, beautiful Cottage, very well equipped (tabs for the dishwasher, towels for the dog, a yummy welcome package, ...), with a lovely garden that is safe for the dog, and great views. Very convenient for Bath and other trips. We had a great time and enjoyed the English countrylife!
