Relax on the raised stone terrace at the end of the garden, overlooking the Abbey Grounds, listen to the ducks quacking by the ponds.

|Further details indoors|
The cottage was sympathetically restored in 2010. The upstairs has white painted floor boards and rugs, the stairs and lounge are carpeted and the kitchen has an easy clean hard floor. The conservatory has a terracotta tiled floor.
I suffer from dust allergy, so you are assured of a high standard of cleanliness. Both the vacuum for guest use and our own has advanced Hepa filtration, and mattress protector covers are aired between each guest and frequently washed! Pillows are synthetic, duvets are 'like down' Microfibre. The double bed has a lush memory foam topper (received much praise). If you prefer 100% cotton sheets, just ask (we use both mixtures and pure cotton ones).
We have recently moved next door so are available at any hour if you need us. Moonstone Cottage has a very special atmosphere, and people say 'it's the sort of place one never wants to leave'.
|Further details outdoors|
The garden is divided into three sections, first the patio by the kitchen and conservatory, then lawns, shrubs, roses, benches, and finally (through the grapevine arch, the third section with a raised stone terrace, seating and patio heater overlooking the stunning Abbey Grounds.
There is a log shed, logs are available for purchase during autumn and winter. You can bring your own, but only seasoned hardwood logs are accepted firewood. The Norwegian Jotul Wood Stove is so efficient, it heats up the whole cottage. There is central heating as well, and the cottage is toasty and warm even during the severe cold snaps we've had in 2011 and 2012. Some of our guests prefer to use only the wood burner, and some prefer to use only the central heating. It's up to you.
The West Country region
The West of England is a major holiday destination, offering the best of British countryside along with delightful towns and seaside resorts.
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. Allegedly the burial place of King Arthur (just accross the stone wall at the end of the garden of Moonstone Cottage), at Glastonbury Abbey. Glastonbury Abbey was once the largest and most important in the British Isles, and a 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. Tthe 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 by nearby Clarks Village in the town of Street.
Last but not least - in addition to being eclectic, cosmopolitan, unusul and quirky, Glastonbury is a wonderfully friendly town.

Thank you! It would be wonderful if C makes it back to Moonstone to write her book. And yes, Glastonbury needs a second by-pass (there is already one from the Wells direction) to route traffic away from some of its most historic parts! It was really lovely to meet you all and we are pleased you had a good stay. Blessings
