Description from owner


UTTERLY SCRUMPTIOUS MOONSTONE COTTAGE (built 1790) in central Glastonbury offers ambient and rustic accommodation with log burner, candles plus all mod cons such as central heating, dishwasher, music system and digital TV. There is an extensive library of books and DVD's for all ages and interests. Free unlimited fibreoptic WIFI. Superb views of Glastonbury Tor and the beautiful and peaceful grounds of Glastonbury Abbey. Within short walking distance of all sights and the High Street.

Moonstone Cottage has a wonderful atmosphere, it is very cosy, clean and welcoming, offering all you could ever wish for during your stay in Glastonbury. Enjoy a drink or a meal on the raised stone terrace at the end of the gardens which overlooks the Abbey grounds. St John's Church tower (in the High Street) and Abbey ruins are visible across the Abbey Grounds in the winter, when the views are spectacular.

FLEXIBLE ACCOMMODATION Two bedroomed ambient accommodation - 1 x double, 1 x twin bunk, plus double sofa bed in lounge. Flexible Accommodation for 1-4. Ideal for couples or families. Sleeps 4 in comfort and individual beds. Cot available, high chair.

LOUNGE Rustic lounge with thick walls, wood burner and plenty of candles. Comfortable furniture and cosy atmosphere with all mod cons at your finger tips.The wall between the lounge and kitchen was once the boundary of the Abbey grounds. The Victorians extended this row of cottages, added gardens and built a new wall at the end of the garden. The sofa leans against the original Abbey boundary today.

EXTRAS DVDs, books and toys available. 32" flat screen digital TV with DVD player. Digital Radio in kitchen. Stereo system and a selection of music CDs. Local information & maps provided, postcards and greeting cards available for purchase. Fibreoptic unlimited broadband provided.

KITCHEN The kitchen is so well equipped, we doubt you will find it lacking in anything. Containers and thermos bottle available for your picnics, and a shopping bag on wheels should you be car-less. Dishwasher, fridge & freezer, fan oven, microwave, blender, coffee maker, coffee percolator, cafetiere, tea pots, cheese slicers etc.

GARDEN Beautiful garden, two private suntrap patios, lawns, swing seat, patio sofas and arm chairs, sun loungers, grapevine and roses. Beyond the old stone wall at the end of the garden lie the stunning grounds of Glastonbury Abbey. Relax on the raised stone terrace at the end of the garden, overlooking the Abbey Grounds, listen to the ducks quacking by the ponds. In summer the views over the duck pond are leafy and green, in autumn and winter the views over the Abbey grounds are quite spectacular. The 1st floor bathroom and 2nd bedroom overlook the Abbey grounds.

LOCATION We are situated across the road from the Rural Life Museum, and 5 minutes walk from the Chalice Well Gardens and footpaths to the Tor, within walking distance of all attractions and the High Street.

PRIVATE PARKING for one vehicle outside the front door.

We pride ourselves on CLEANLINESS. Our vacuum has HEPA filtration (ultimate filtration for allergy sufferers). SHOE-LESS cottage, slippers provided.

Further details indoors

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 memory foam topper, it has received much praise. If you prefer 100% cotton sheets, just ask (we use both mixtures and pure cotton ones). Moonstone Cottage has a very special atmosphere, please see our reviews on this site and other sites.

Further details outdoors

The garden is divided into three sections, first the patio by the kitchen with glass table, parasol & chairs, then lawns, shrubs, roses, swing seat under the grapevine, sun loungers, and finally (through the grapevine arch), the third section with a raised stone terrace, table and comfortable seating overlooking the stunning Abbey Grounds.

Log shed by kitchen patio - 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 no matter what the weather is doing. Some of our guests prefer to use only the wood burner, and some prefer to use only the central heating.
