About Vanessa Bicknell

We moved to Glastonbury in 2001 after selling our bookshop in Hampshire and bought the Flying Dragon Bed and Breakfast. In 2010 we converted the downstairs into a beautiful garden flat and renamed it the Flying Dragon's Nest and moved up into the bed and breakfast house ourselves.

Vanessa Bicknell purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Vanessa Bicknell chose Glastonbury

We had been coming to Glastonbury for years as a place for rest and retreat, plus we love the Chalice Well Garden and climbing the Tor. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we often walk in the Mendips and out on the Levels looking at the incredible bird wildlife.

What makes this apartment unique

We bought this particular house because of its fantastic views and its great potential to use as a rental property, As we face west we can often have incredible sunsets and light into the house. It is a very peaceful place to live, yet near everything that Glastonbury has to offer.

Amazing View in Glastonbury

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last month so that we could attend a workshop at the Avalon Rooms in Glastonbury, our stay was perfect! The apartment had everything we needed to make it a home from home. It was only a ten minute walk to where we had to go each day, which meant a quick run home at lunchtime was easy to do. Be warned, it has steep steps so is not for the unfit, luckily we had been improving our fitness so enjoyed the challenge. The views made it all worthwhile! I would stay here again! Thankyou Vanessa and Renchi for being lovely hosts!

Exceeded My Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Vanessa and Renchy were the best hosts, we didn't have a car and Renchy picked us up at the bus stop! The house is up on a hill with fantastic views. I loved The solarium and wish I would have had more time to use it. I started each day in it with a cup of coffee and ended the day with a glass of wine just enjoying the view. Everything was super clean, the bed comfortable, and it is an easy walk downtown (but it is uphill on the way back). I highly recommend this property!

Great location. Fantastic view. The flat had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Very sweet little flat. We were very comfortable and loved watching the sunset and sunrise over Glastonbury. The town and the tor were so close that we didn't need to drive. The owners were lovely and we will certainly book again when we next plan a visit to the area.

ideal location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is the ideal location to visit the breathtaking Tor and Chalice Wells Gardens. We loved not having to drive for a couple of days and being able to explore by foot.

The apartment was very clean and easy to find with beautiful views from the garden.
