Nice and cozy stayed for a lovely weekend with friends, Neil had left us tea coffee and some goodies would stay again.nice old fashioned place we all enjoyed lovely little courtyard at the back to relax with a nice glass of wine
We have just spent a week at Rowan Cottage and had a lovely stay. Although a little Victorian end of terrace our party of 5 found it spacious and comfortable. We could park two cars at the front; and the cottage is set back from the road, We approached from a pretty garden which makes it feel like being in the countryside. The interior was clean, comfortable and we had all the equipment we needed. We ate out in Glastonbury most nights (we were on holiday) and would recommend; Who’d have thought it, Hawthorns and GiGis but when we did cook we had everything to hand and good appliances. Having a washing machine we could use was an added bonus. The little courtyard is enclosed and safe with seating for the sunny days. We walked to the Tor from a footpath just along the road in about 30mins via footpaths and back lanes. Glastonbury, Wells and Street are close by and the cottage was the perfect location for visiting the area. Thank you
“Cute,Idyllic,Well Preserved Cottage”
Nicely,tastefully updated old Victorian cottage. Some neat conversions and alterations,such as putting a bathroom in what probably used to be the pantry or larder. Very straightforward to locate,not difficult at all,also strategically located close to the centre of small Glastonbury-also conveniently (for us) very close to Street (which was our ultimate destination. Our short stay afforded us the opportunity to make a mini tour of both towns. Garden could be better tended,though,and made much more of than it is in its current state-which is rather basic. Certainly well up to requirement,it measures up well. Not bad at all;keep up the good work.
Owner's reply: I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Rowan Cottage, we do try and make things as comfortable as possible for our guests. I agree that the the garden is looking a little tired this year and we have already made a start in tidying it up and will be adding some later flowering plants for next year. Neil
“Beautiful cottage in a perfect location”
My partner and I stayed at Rowan Cottage during the Christmas period in order to be close to family who live nearby. We initially chose to stay here due to the location and we were thoroughly impressed during our stay. It's a lovely cottage in beautiful surrounds, was imaculately presented and the owners couldn't do enough for us during our stay. We are from Australia so not familiar with the area we were made to feel very welcome. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!
“Ideal site for sightseeing but not idyllic setting for R & R”
The photographs of Rowan Cottage on the website coupled with the intriguing 'treasure hunt' directions suggest a hidden rural retreat, whereas the property is actually situated on an unlovely stretch of main road and backs on to an industrial estate. Having said that, it is quiet and very conveniently placed to explore Glastonbury, which is perfect if you are a New Ager or an aging hippy, into magic, crystals or alternative therapies. It is also within easy reach of a number of other suitably touristy sites, including Wells, Bath and - dare I mention it - the retail outlet at Street., which is a useful option for rainy days as it is covered. If you've got a good deal of money to spare, you can also go to Cheddar Gorge and Wooky Hole; we took the scenic route to avoid the huge entrance fees, which also meant avoiding the crowds while enjoying spectacular views. Somerset is always a delight, whether you're seeking sorcery, scenery or scrumpy, so anywhere that allows ease of access and an opportunity for exploration has to score points. On a more prosaic note, it is also only a few miles from a large supermarket in Wells for the weekly shop. As described on the website, it is a Victorian cottage with all the charm that entails: a delightful old-fashioned garden leading to the front door, a quaint feel to the rooms, especially the peaceful sunroom looking on to the patio garden. Unfortunately, it also has some of the drawbacks you might expect of a house of that period, for example a large damp patch in the corner of the staircase, a colony of persistent spiders (and their ensuing webs) and a slightly musty, dusty feel on arrival. In fact, the first thing we did was scrub and polish; we are not picky clean-freaks (by any stretch!), but the thick layer of dust in the living-room and bedrooms and the sticky cupboards in the kitchen were a bit much even for us! To be fair, this was easy as the owners had generously left all the cleaning products discarded by previous tenants. They had also thoughtfully provided some tea, coffee, milk and sugar and a wide variety of books to read - a welcoming touch. The kitchen was well-equipped with good quality gadgets, including an extremely efficient dishwasher, so cooking was a pleasure. Similarly, the utility room, accessed through the patio garden, had an excellent washing-machine, dryer and freezer. By contrast, both double beds and mattresses were poor quality and uncomfortable, so we all ended up with backaches. However, our main issue with Rowan Cottage was that we were always worried we were going to lose our £100.00 deposit by staining the white sofa covers and cushions, scratching the polished antique dining table or breaking the glass placemats and coasters. This, plus the dire warnings that we were not to disturb the neighbours by making any noise after 11 pm, meant that it wasn't as relaxing a holiday as it might have been. I emphatically wouldn't recommend it to a family with young children or a group of friends out for a good time!
