Overview

Glastonbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Moonstone Cottage (1790) has views of Abbey grounds and Tor, sleeps 1-5.

MOONSTONE COTTAGE, GLASTONBURY This Georgian period cottage (1790) offers all you could ever wish for during your stay in Glastonbury. Ambient & rustic accommodation, wood burner, plenty of candles – with all modern essentials such as WI-FI, digital TV, Hi-fi and central heating. The kitchen is kitted out for any eventuality with electric hob, oven, microwave and dishwasher, electric blender, coffee maker, coffee percolator etc. Views of Glastonbury Tor and majestic Abbey Grounds. Short walking distance from all attractions and High Street, 4 minutes from Chalice Well and Tor footpath.

FLEXIBLE ACCOMMODATION Sleeps 1-4 (max 6, if you don't mind feeling a little crammed). 2 bedrooms (1x double + 1x twin bunk) plus double sofabed in the lounge. Sleeps 4 in comfort and individual beds. Ideal for couples, families or friends sharing - and we have had many solo travellers too.

PRIVATE PARKING FOR 1 VEHICLE

BOOKS / DVD LIBRARY, free maps and information leaflets

WONDERFUL GARDENS The garden is divided into three sections, first the sun trap patio by the kitchen and conservatory, then lawn, shrubs, roses, swing seat and sun loungers, finally (through the grapevine arch), the third section with raised terrace overlooking the stunning grounds of Glastonbury Abbey. In autumn & winter the views over the Abbey ruins and grounds are spectacular. In the summer the trees partly obstruct the views, still offering wondering views of the duck pond, vast lawns and beautiful majestic trees.Seating for 6+ on each terrace. BBQ available.

SHOE-LESS COTTAGE, slippers available

CLEANLINESS GUARANTEED You are assured of a high standard of cleanliness. Our vacuum has advanced Hepa filtration, and mattress protector covers are aired between each guest and frequently washed! Pillows and quilts are synthetic. If you prefer 100% cotton sheets, just ask (we use both mixtures and pure cotton ones).

LOG SHED The Norwegian Jotul Wood Stove is so efficient, it heats up the whole cottage. Some guests prefer using the log burner only - others use the central heating only - or you can use them both. Logs are available to purchase during autumn and winter. Only seasoned hardwood logs are acceptable firewood, in case you wish to bring your own.

EXTRA DETAILS Moonstone cottage was renovated and sympathetically restored in 2010. It is kept freshly decorated and very clean. The upstairs has white painted original floor boards, the stairs and lounge are carpeted (low pile) and the kitchen has an easy clean hard floor, the conservatory / laundry room has ceramic tiles.

The Victorians extended this row of cottages in the 1800's and also added the gardens and a new boundary wall to the Abbey grounds. Today, the sofa leans against the original Abbey boundary. You can see how thick this wall is by looking at the photos.

Moonstone Cottage has a very special atmosphere, please see our own website www.moonstonecottage.eu for lots of recent guest feedback.

Moonstone is more than a home away!

  • 5 of 5
Moonstone Cottage is as lovely as its name. Just like Glastonbury there is a spiritual feel about the cottage and garden. Maybe it is because the garden wall is shared with the Abbey grounds. There is a patio table next to the wall which is perfect for enjoying a beverage morning or evening while contemplating the myths, lore, and history of Glastonbury. The cottage is scrupulously clean and well appointed. There is everything you need for a full meal, or a cozy evening of listening to music or watching a movie. Katarina has provided it all.

Moonstone is in a great location. The major attractions are within walking distance as are restaurants, grocery stores, pubs, and shops. There is no need for a car while in Glastonbury, but there is off the street parking infront of the flat if you drive. Glastonbury is only minutes away from Wells and convenient for day trips to the Jurassic coast and the Somerset country side. Katarina has an assortment of brochures and books about Glastonbury that will provide interesting information on the sights and sites. I was fascinated with Chalice Well, the Tor, the Abbey and especially the Arthurian legends and stories of Joseph of Arimethea. The holy thorn tree was even blooming while we were there.

Katarina and her family were very welcoming. We had chocolate and wine waiting upon our arrival. We enjoyed their company, but they honored our privacy as well.
I am looking forward to a return trip. There is no doubt we will stay at Moonstone Cottage.
Everything about Glastonbury and Moonstone Cottage was a delightful surprise.

Owner's Response: Ah, thank you - your review is treasured. We really enjoyed meeting you both and felt extremely privileged to have you stay at Moonstone! It would be fantastic if you made it back to Avalon one day. All things bright!

N.B. The Holy Thorn Tree has sisters in both the Abbey and Chalice Well Gardens - sadly the 'original' on Wearyall Hill has suffered unfairly.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Moonstone Cottage is a home from home with a touch of the Glastonbury magic thrown in. Pleasant, comfortable and clean, what more could you want? Ideally positioned for all the famous attractions, off road parking and a beautiful, private garden, with a raised patio area at the rear overlooking the peaceful abbey grounds.
We have visited Glastonbury several times but this is by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. Fully recommend it.

Moonstone Cottage is a must!

  • 5 of 5
Moonstone cottage is a delightful choice for couple, friends and small families when staying in Glastonbury. The cottage itself is lovely, having everything that one needs for comfort and entertainment indoors. It is also perfectly situated, being a stones throw away from the Chalice Well and bordering the grounds of the Abbey. The cottage is more than a home from home. It is a must. The owners are wonderful, hospitable and sharing but also respectful of privacy. I would definitely go again, without a moments hesitation. This is at the top of my 'Glastonbury list'!

Repeat Visitor. Says it all !

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Moonstone Cottage on several occassions.
The minute I walk into Moonstone I feel relaxed and comfortable.
The Cottage is a period cottage which has been tastefully and sympathetically decorated by the thoughtful and considerate owner. From the wood burning stove in the lounge to the delightful rear garden which backs onto and has views of the Abbey grounds.
Moonstone is ideally located, being only a couple of minutes flat walk to Glastonbury High street with its shops, restaurants and pubs.
On a practical note, there is an off street parking area at the front of the cottage, so you will not need to use your car during your stay.
If you dont want to eat or drink out in Glastonbury, there are 3 supermarkets in the locale where you can buy supplys, and then cook in the well equipped kitchen and eat in the dinning area or on an outside table in the garden.

The owner is always most welcoming and helpful. She always provides a number of up-to-date leaflets, booklets and maps of Glastonbury and its attractions for guests.

The ambiance of Moonstone Cottage compliments the charms of Glastonbury perfectly.

I would recommend Moonstone Cottage to friends and relatives of all ages.

Moonstone Cottage, Glastonbury.

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful vibes in this beautiful cottage, a perfect time was had and we were made very welcome and arrived to find the cottage warm and inviting with candles and soft music. A great place to relax and explore the sights of Glastonbury and the surrounding areas. Katarina & David were friendly and helpful at all times when we needed assistance of just a general guide to the local amenities. An ideal location for all Glastonbury's wonders and being situated so close to everything meant no time was wasted taking it all in. A most comfortable stay in a clean and well kept property. We hope to visit again soon. Christina, James & Solar.

Glastonbury has long served as the Mecca of the British Isles, representing all faiths and traditions, an eclectic and interesting town, steeped in history, myth and legend. At the last count, the town was said to have at least 70 different faiths - apparently the highest concentration per capita, in the world(?) Allegedly the burial place of King Arthur (just accross the stone wall at the end of the garden of Moonstone Cottage), at Glastonbury Abbey. This Abbey was once the largest and most important in the British Isles, and an important place of pilgrimage.

Before the sea water was pumped off the levels to provide fertile agricultural land, Glastonbury was 'The Isle of Avalon', lower parts of this town were once under water. Glastonbury Tor is the famous landmark of the area, visible from afar accross the level landscape of Somerset. The Chalice Well gardens and Rural Life Museum are major visitor attractions, and Glastonbury High Street is lined with cafes, restaurants and quirky shops.

The cathedral City of Wells lies just 5 miles away, and shoppers will delight in the variety offered at nearby Clarks Village. Also nearby are Cheddar with its famous gorge and caves - not to mention cheese, Wookey with it's famous caves and a whole host of other interesting towns and villages.
