About the property

Glastonbury Rose is a four star AA cottage, lovingly decorated, and cared for. It has one twin and one double room, and is well furnished. The double bedroom has an unobstructed view of the Tor, and the twin looks out to the Goddess Hall, and St. Benedict's Church. It has very cozy beds with nice linens. The bathroom has a power shower as well as a bath. The kitchen is stocked with breakfast basics on your arrival, including milk, butter, eggs, cereal, bread, tea and coffee. Free unlimited Wi-Fi. There is a little outside terrace to grab some sunshine in the morning. It has very little traffic, as it is not a busy through road. It is two minutes from the High St. with easy access to all shops, restaurants, and events. Its a twenty minute walk to the Chalice Well and the Tor, or there is a seasonal bus which leaves from the High St. for your convenience. Glastonbury Rose has consistently received good reviews since opening a couple of years ago. We are always on hand if needed, or you want some advice. We also offer sacred site tours, alternative therapies, and airport/train pick up if needed.

*Please note that the cottage backs on to the Mitre Pub. They play skittles a few times a week. They finish by 11:00-11:15. This can be heard in the bedrooms. Not terribly loud but noticeable.

Cosy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The owners Meredith and John couldn't have been more helpful if they tried. A very warm welcome to Rose Cottage with the added bonus of tea, milk and biscuits to revive us after our long journey. The cottage was clean, comfortable and inviting. Plenty of linen, towels and if you have forgotten your toiletries there are plenty to help you out. The beds are so comfortable you don't want to get out...but you do as there is plenty to do in and around Glastonbury. Lashings of hot water, great shower and the cottage was lovely and warm. Even though it is in the centre of the town there was no noise at night to disturb your sleep. My husband and I and our two friends enjoyed our stay very much. We have left the cottage having had lots of laughter and a very good time.

The Magical Rose Cottage a "must" in your life experience.

  • 5 of 5

Once upon a time on the legendary Isle of Avalon was a small cottage where, if you stayed there long enough, you began to notice that magical things happened all around you. They happened in your sleep and while you were awake, if you allowed them. They could be transforming if that's what you desired.

After many hundreds of years and the disappearance of the inland sea, this isle became the Glastonbury of today along with a magical Rose Cottage, perhaps on that very ancient spot. No one knows.

Rose Cottage is a unique realm of comfort. The cozy living area is the first room to greet you, full of eclectic decor, books, movies and the warmth of a fireplace heater and down throws, as well as a place to recharge mobile devices. The kitchen is fully equipped with easy-to-use appliances. The bathroom is large and bright with the most fantastic power shower. Upstairs are two lovely bedrooms, with amazingly comfortable beds for dreamy sleeping.

But the magic really began before we saw the cottage, it started when John picked us up at Heathrow and removed any conceivable stress of getting to our destination. He took us to Stonehenge en route and later with his expert guidance, knowledge and kind manner we began to experience the mystical places of our special journey. Over the next few days, we toured with John to numerous majestic sites such as Tintagel, Merlin's Cave, Avebury Stone Circle, Silbury Hill, St Nectan's, etc. as well as exploring special Glastonbury locations such as the Tor.

Then there was the magic of Rose Cottage's location. Like a portal, it enabled us to have the freedom to do whatever and go wherever we wanted at any time. All we had to do was desire it. Is there a grocery store nearby? Practically around the corner. A bus to somewhere? Around the corner. A taxi to somewhere else? Around the corner. Restaurants and shops? You get it; like magic. From synchronous events, otherworldly symbols and dreams we evolved through ten happy days until John returned us to Heathrow, leaving us with our enchanted memories.

Sound like magic? We strongly suggest that you make Rose Cottage a "must" in your life experience.

With blessings from,

Joy, Lesley and Patti (JLP) in Canada

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a very lovely cottage, the pictures on the website were a true reflection of the property. The property was clean and well maintained.

The owners John and Meredith met us upon our arrival and were extremely helpful. They had supplied basic items for breakfast, along with tea, coffee and milk.

There was free street parking.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.

Glastonbury is set on the Somerset Levels, and within a few minutes drive to the Nature Reserves, which are famous for bird watching, and especially the starlings in winter. Glastonbury is a place of pilgrimage for all faiths, and is known for being the 'heart chakra' with all the ley lines of earth crossing under Glastonbury Tor. The Chalice Well Peace Garden is a sanctuary, and natural spring, which has attracted people through the ages for its healing properties. Glastonbury Tor, is a site famous the world over. The area is also known for cider making, and there are many places to sample the local 'scrumpy' within the surrounding area. Historically, the ruins of the Abbey are probably its most famous attraction, being the site of the first Christian church in the western world. Jesus's uncle, Joseph of Arimathea is meant to have brought the young Jesus here, and later, brought the cup from the last supper. It is reputed to be buried somewhere in Glastonbury. King Arthur's bones are meant to have been found in the Abbey as well. Glastonbury High Street is a colourful place, with a host of wonderful restaurants and shops, mostly catering to New Age tourists, but also a host of unique and special ones. Lots of courses take place here all year round, and there are many conferences such as the Goddess Conference, and Crop Circle Conference. One cannot fail to be touched and inspired here, and many people feel like it's their second home, due to the friendliness, and openness of its residents.
