15 Oriel Drive VIEW OF THE TOR
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 3
This property is part of the GLORIOUS GLASTONBURY HOLIDAY HOMES group of holiday rentals in central Glastonbury, you can go directly to our website from this page.
COMFORTABLE, QUALITY ACCOMMODATION AT A BUDGET PRICE - IN THE HEART OF GLASTONBURY
15 Oriel Drive is a neat, comfortable two bedroom home in an ideal location at a price that won't break the bank. The apartment sleeps three people in one double bedroom and one single, a family of four would need to use the sofa bed. Oriel Drive is a few minutes level walk from the High Street and is just a couple of minutes to the entrance door of the supermarket. If you're like us and love the majesty of The Tor then you will revel in the stunning view of it from our living room - check out the photographs. We also have another three apartments - beautiful, town centre properties with private parking and gardens so if Oriel Drive is already booked at the time of your visit, perhaps one our other apartments will suit you so please do get in touch. Please note - don't take any notice of our availability calendar, we show the whole year as available so that we can offer you an alternative if Oriel Drive is already taken.
The accommodation comprises a double bedroom, single bedroom, living room with double sofa bed, kitchen and bathroom. If three single people wished not to share a room, the sofa bed in the living room means that everyone can sleep in privacy. It's not a large flat, (small but perfectly formed) but it's the ideal self catering holiday for couples or 3 people. - To be fair, four adults would be a squash but we advertise the apartment as four persons because we've found that it is quite comfortable for a family with two children. It is situated on the second floor so it probably wouldn't be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. There is private parking at the rear of the building.
Everything is arranged for your convenience and comfort and fittings include, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, freeview TV, DVD player with a good library of DVDs.
If you are familiar with our holiday cottage 'Avalon Cottage' then you will know that we offer out of the ordinary holiday accommodation, with lots of personal touches seldom seen in rental property. Our flat has some of the style and charm of the cottage but on a smaller scale and at a much lower price, sometimes less than 50 a night depending on length of stay.

The West Country region
Glastonbury is a different and rather lively small town. It has rich traditions, a cosmopolitan community and a taste of tomorrow. It sits on the ancient Isle of Avalon in the Somerset Levels, with a backdrop of soft, green, rolling hills.
It has been a pilgrimage place for thousands of years. In the Middle Ages a great abbey was here - it was England's 'holyest earthe'.
It now hosts the famous Glastonbury Festival, pilgrimages, music, a carnival, several conferences and other events. People visit from the world over, seeking a certain special something....
Overlooking it all is Glastonbury Tor, a fascinating holy hill.
Tradition has it that Jesus visited and Joseph of Arimathaea built a church here, King Arthur and Guinevere were buried here and it was an ancient place of the Goddess. It was home to the medieval saints Patrick, Dunstan, Benedict, David and Bridget.
Today it is a unique, atmospheric town of nearly 10,000 people with a mixture of locals, incomers and spiritual seekers. For a hundred years it has been a mecca for 'cultural creatives' and an interfaith town.
The website www.isleofavalon.co.uk tells you all you need to know about Glastonbury - and if it doesn't, it leads you to other Glastonbury sites that will.
Welcome to the Isle of Avalon!
Wearyal Hill. Glastonbury Abbey. Chalice Well. A great variety of ancient and fascinating architecture. Glastonbury is the centre of New Age philosophies in the UK and if you are interested in alternative therapies and non traditional spiritual things then this is the town for you. It is also one of the earliest seats of Christianity and the famous Glastonbury Pilgrimages brings Christians from far afield.
Events are wide ranging and fascinating - The Goddess Conference. The Dance Festival. Glastonbury Festival. Children's World Festival. The Extravaganza Classical Music Festival and the list goes on and on

"Lovely flat, perfect position - convenient for everything, in a lovely area."
Everything was just as it should be. We had an excellent holiday. We wondered if Morrison's being so close would be a problem but it wasn't. It wasn't open too early or too late and it was interesting to have something happening all the time if we cared to look. The view over the Tor was amazing and you have the light and weather changing making it different every time you look. If we got up in the night, on a clear night, there was a single bright star above the Tor.
A bonus for us was that the cats were friendlier than at home, and were mostly happy to be stroked. I loved the smells of incense and spices from the shops and the general ambiance of a place lost in time.
