Property type cottage

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.

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.

Alles gut!

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage ist perfekt, sehr zentral und doch abseits. Es war alles im Haus was das Herz begehrt, was man braucht. Charmant eingerichtet. Liebe im Detail. Es war sauber und warm. Alles hat funktioniert. Spirituell und esoterisch. Na ja, Glastonbury halt, sehr angenehm. Einzig das Doppelbett war für uns fast zu schmal da wir ein sehr großes gewöhnt sind. Aber für 10 Tage geht das schon mal. Leider haben wir die Vermieter nicht zu Gesicht bekommen. Eine Freundin der Vermieter hat uns begrüßt und Instruktionen gegeben. War sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Für 2 Personen perfekt und wunderbar. Bei mehreren Personen z. B. 4, wäre es zu klein. Vor allen Dingen wenn man sich nicht so intim kennt. Ansonsten jeder Zeit wieder gerne. Danke bis bald liebes Glastonbury ❤️ und Glastonbury Rose 🌹󞐠Liebe Grüße, Familie Dirsch

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.
