About Gerry Urch. - The Willow
I am now 66, single and retired . My profession was as an IFA in financial services. I have always dealt with the public. I have four grown up children who all still live reasonably locally. I have eight grandchildren. I am also a landlord for Airbnb. I enjoy music of all types, the theatre and all forms of wild life and the countryside. I am very much a 'people' person.
Gerry Urch. - The Willow purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 1989
Why Gerry Urch. - The Willow chose Glastonbury
This is one of the more scenic estates in Glastonbury but is still very close to town.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
The garden is very enclosed and has a lovely big willow as a centre piece - hence the name of the B&B.

Glastonbury has an excellent bus service and so it's easy to get to tourist places like Bath, Cheddar & Wells. The best beach is Weymouth, it has a lovely harbour. It's about 75 minutes away by car. Stonehenge is about an hour away, but again, you'll need a car to get there. The station at Castle Cary has a poor bus service and so a taxi is normally required to get you to and fro. A Berry's coach goes to London early mornings and returns by 11.00pm each day - the cost is only about £30.
There is a folder in your room which tells you about all the local attractions and beyond. There are many in the area and several beautiful places to visit. The information centre in town ( by the Town Hall) is excellent.
The town comes alive in the summer months. 750,000 tourists flood here to see all the local attractions and the quirky shops! The High St is not large and all the pubs, restaurants and cafes are all close together. The quality of the eateries ( pubs & cafes) is generally very good and with great choices for vegans and vegetarians too.
The town has an exellent music scene and athriving cafe culture. Glastonbury is a very friendly place and definitely worth exploring for its various themes - spirtuaism , paganism, therapeutic remedies, female empowerment, healing & self growth, history, myth & legend ... to mention just a few!
There are two very good museums in town and several very interesting churches to fill the gaps after seeing the Tor, Abbey, Chalice Well & White Spring.
There's a market on Tuesdays in the High St and there's always something going on in places like the Town Hall and Assembly Rooms. On the third thursday of each month and on Sunday afternoons there's jazz at the Hawthorns Hotel. The music scene in the summer is very vibrant here with several bands playing in the pubs in the evenings over the weekends.
Glastonbury is a very good centre to explore other local areas.
My home is on the southern side of town - about a 10 minute walk into town and the same to any of the attractions.
