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 for lots of recent guest feedback.
