Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages

  • No pets allowed

Glastonbury Rose is an AA four star rated 'home from home', and we are pleased to say recently won a Tripadvisor award of excellence 2014. Close to shops and cafes, it is a perfect location, adjacent to the High Street, for any event, a nice meal out, a quick drink of coffee, or a stroll up the High St. just to see what's going on. It's equally a lovely place to return back to after a long day walking in nature, or attending a course. Perhaps have a quiet meal in, or a candlelit bubble bath. To make your first day of arrival that bit easier, we provide breakfast provisions at no extra cost. It is tastefully decorated to a high standard with no expense spared on beds and linens. Free wi-fi for email and browsing.

There is a selection of films and books to escape in, or learn from, and a very peaceful, lovely energy to help you relax and unwind. Glastonbury Abbey is 2 minutes walk away, and it's only a fifteen minute walk to Chalice Well, and the Tor. If you don't feel like walking, the Tor Bus stop is also two minutes walk away which will drop you off at the major points of interest. We are also located next to the Goddess Temple. Oh! There is a fantastic view of the Tor from the double room! Free parking two minutes walk away.

Please enquire directly by phone or email, regarding availability. We do not use or update our calendar.

Further details indoors

We truly care about our guests, and are available at any time to answer any questions or make recommendations on outings or places to go and eat. We are seasoned travellers ourselves, and have a good idea what people want, and have over 10 years experience in this industry.

We know (besides all the extras) the most important thing on holiday is a good nights rest, so have made sure to get great quality beds and linens. And for your convenience (so you don't have to run out the door the minute you arrive) we have basics waiting for you...tea/coffee/cereal/milk etc. We can provide a memory foam mattress, or single air bed for an extra person.

There is a quaint outside decked terrace to sit out ! There is also a good selection of cookware and crockery to make meals with.

Further details outdoors

Unfortunately, there is no smoking inside Glastonbury Rose, but you are welcome to light up in the back terrace.

The West Country region

Glastonbury is an incredible place, full of history, mythology and mysticism. The locals are friendly, and synchronicity is a daily occurrence. It is a place where magic happens, and people from all cultures, beliefs, and religions live happily together. Anything goes. Really! You will find Glastonbury one of the few places on earth where you can just be yourselves, and no one will judge you. Most people feel an instant recognition, especially on first sight of the Tor... a beacon that seems to call you from times past. Miracles happen, chance meetings change lives. It truly is special. People get here when the time in their life is right, ready and receptive for change and healing. Come on, we dare you!

It is a mild climate. A sunny day in Glastonbury is like Teletubby Land.

Nearby interests:

Somerset Levels: great for walks, cycling, and bird watching!

Street: 2 kilometres Clark's Village shopping outlet for all your discounted bargains!

Wells: 7 kilometres. The smallest city in England with a Medieval Cathedral.

There are ALWAYS things going on in Glastonbury! For every interest! But mostly, Glastonbury is a place of pilgrimage and transformation. There is always a talk to attend, a festival or symposium of some sort, a show, or an event. Places of local interest are the Chalice Well Peace Gardens, the Tor, Glastonbury Abbey, Rural Life Museum, and the remains of the Holy Thorn Tree on Wearyal Hill! There are numerous cafes to sit outside and watch the world go bye. It's a place to just BE! The cafes and restaurants are only two minutes walk away. No need for a car.

"lovely, welcoming, comfy well equipped base for our holiday."

We had a great welcome and midweek stay at Rose Cottage. it was lovely for our daughters to be able to stroll off and browse the shops alone, we walked up to the Tor from the house quite easily(the distance was easy; not the hill :) ). Despite the weather being grotty we went to Clarks village and to Wookey Hole and even popped down to Weymouth for the afternoon and had a great family holiday. The gluten free bread from the bread shop was lovely and the gluten free fish and chips on a Thursday night from the chippy were really special! Thanks to Meredith and John for the menus; it was lovely being lazy and having takeaways!! The Thai/ Malaysian selection at the Oriental chef was scrummy. The beds and linen were sumptuous and Meredith's provisions were so generous we didn't have to go out buying basics. We were concerned about the car parking, but always managed to park within easy walking distance. The girls loved the details and attention given to every part of Rose Cottage.
