Avalon Cottage is one of the GLORIOUS GLASTONBURY HOLIDAY HOMES GROUP OF SELF CATERING PROPERTIES.
This is a four star rated traditional Somerset cottage built in the 16th century but with all of the comfort and convenience of a modern home. We have three bedrooms and two bathrooms which accommodate five people, there is a guest bed for a sixth person. The second bedroom has zip link beds so can either be a double or two singles.
Situated in the conservation area of Bove Town which is a short walk to the centre of town but still in a relatively quiet area so your holiday will be peaceful. We are on the route to The Tor and within easy reach of all the sacred sites.
Our guests love Avalon Cottage and they come back time and time again. They enjoy the cosy central heating, the safe garden and the comfortable furnishings. I think we are the only three bedroom two bathroom cottage available for this price in Glastonbury so you can be sure of value for money. The best value holidays go by the week and start from Saturday.

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.
