Our beds are really comfortable, there is nothing worse than booking a holiday and finding that you're trying to sleep on a rubbish mattress, we take your comfort seriously. Outside there is a small fenced patio, safe for the children and a great place to enjoy an al fresco meal or to soak up the Glastonbury air. The parking is fine for a standard family saloon or hatchback. The measurement is 4300cm or 14feet, nowadays a lot of people have huge four by fours or people carriers which will be unlikely to fit on the private parking. There is unrestricted parking on the street. The town centre is a short walk away so guests often park up and stay put. We are situated in the conservation area of Bove Town which is 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. Our nightly rate is higher than the heavily discounted weekly rate so get the best price by booking from Saturday to Saturday.

Location description from owner

The England 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.

Welcome to the Isle of Avalon!

Glastonbury Centre

Wearyal Hill. Glastonbury Abbey. Chalice Well. A great variety of ancient and fascinating archtecture. 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 bring 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, the list goes on and on

“Relaxing Peaceful Retreat In The Heart of the Town”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2011

This is the second time staying at this lovely cottage, once again we found it to be a wonderful and peaceful retreat, yet just a few minutes walk into the town. Very helpful owner and straightforward booking process. It was just myself & my husband but would accommodate larger families very comfortably. The cottage itself is well equipped, spacious & a real home from home. A good selection of books & dvd's too which is a nice touch, especially on rainy afternoons snugglng on the large cosy sofa. Comfortable beds, everything you need in the kitchen and a nice little terrace to have breakfast on.

“Lovely Glastonbury cottage”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2011

Everything was very nice at Avalon Cottage except for the double bed in the bedroom with en-suite, which for us was very soft. Also the pillows were very flat. Everything else was very good indeed and we were instantly very comfortable.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the feedback. I'm staying at the cottage myself this weekend so I'll make sure there are some firmer pillows available for those that prefer them.

“A beautiful cottage in a beautiful area”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2011

We have been to Avalon Cottage every year for the past 3 years and will continue to go there in the future. It is a lovely place to stay and feels like a home from home.

“Perfect position, with all the home comforts”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2011

Surprisingly spacious, very well equipped and a perfect position for walking into Town, and as a base for further afield. Good to have off road parking and a sunny courtyard to relax in. One tip though, if visiting the Tor, do not park your vehicle anywhere near - use the car park opposite the Chalice Well. We left ours for 5 minutes to take some pictures, only to suffer a drive by break in & lose some personal items, leaving a sour taste of an otherwise perfect break. Still, I would highly recommend Avalon Cottage - a very high standard of sel catering accomodation

“Walking through the door is like coming home.”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2011

Excellent cottage, warm, clean and comfortable with everything you would need to cook a three course meal if you wish. Barbara has thought of everything that would make your stay like a home from home.

“The Perfect Place to Stay”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2011

My son and I were in Glastonbury for 1 week and were delighted to book our holiday at Avalon Cottage. When we arrived and went through the property we were truly appreciative of every thoughtful item that was provided for our use and there was plenty of room for my teenage son and myself to have our own space. No detail was left out even eco soap for the dishwasher. The careful explanations by the owner prior to our arrival allowed for everything to flow smoothly for the entire week. The central-yet-peaceful-just-out-of-the-way location meant we could step out of the door and be on the High Street for practical matters and meetings in a matter of minutes and also out on the country roads for peaceful walks around the Tor and other local landmarks even more quickly.I would highly recommend this property to everyone.
