Old Farm was built in 1345 by the monks of Glastonbury Abbey as a resting place for pilgrims. The farmhouse and the traditional farm buildings are English Heritage 2* status putting them in the top 5% of all listed buildings in the UK. They have now been subject to an award winning restoration around the original thatched house.
The Cider House forms part of the former medieval farmyard is a lovely two bedroom cottage full of original features. This is a unique place, there's something about it's age, over 600 years old, it's beautiful position and it's direct historical link to Glastonbury abbey that makes it very restful.
