“Peaceful and charming”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2018

Wonderful stay at Lilac cottage, very peaceful and ideally suited for exploring the lovely countryside around Glastonbury and further afield. Would recommend a stay here to anyone.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2017

Lilac Cottage is the perfect base to explore the area.. it’s clean and very well equipped.. it’s very warm and comfortable we will definitely return.

“Nice cottage but not ideal for young baby.”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2017

Nice cottage with all the basics and good location for us. Our daughter is 10 months old and probably not ideal for young children, as one bedroom is up steep steps and the other downstairs, so not so good for middle of the night wake ups! Also main living area is tiled floor, which is quite hard for little people when they try and stand and fall down. Fine for those with older children though. Beautiful view of the Tor from the paddock and friendly owners.

“Delightful cottage”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2017

Wonderful cottage to stay in. So lovely and warm and plenty of hot water (very important when staying in winter time). Well equipped kitchen. Very helpful to have a clothes rack for drying clothes. Great wifi. Great place to explore Glastonbury and Bath from. We really appreciated the Christmas touches with the lights and little tree. Lots of useful information in the cottage about the surrounding area and things to see/do which was great. I would highly recommend staying here - our family loved it. Thanks Julie.

“Amazing place”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2017

We stayed at lilac cottage and it was perfect great distance to Glastonbury and easy enough to find, hen was brilliant and all very clean and reasonable in price and will definitely be staying again

“Comfortable and Clean in a good location for exploring Somerset”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2013

Spent 5 nights in Lilac cottage in July 13 during very hot weather and the house was clean, comfortable and thankfully nice and cool during the heatwave. The cottage is a converted outbuilding/barn attached to the owners house. It had everything we needed for our stay with the exception of a good internet connection/wifi-patchy at best (not totally unexpected in rural areas). It's on a main road between Glastonbury and Shepton but is well set back and the thick walls and double glazing mean it's not noisy inside. Also the twin room is at the rear so this was very quite for the kids. The family were friendly and helpful and were very happy to let our 2 boys use the play equipment in their garden. The quite village pub next door served good basic pub grub and other than Morris dancers one evening was not noisy in any fashion. We enjoyed Glastonbury, Wells and a trip up to Bristol but our highlight was the Greenbank Lido in Street. A must on a hot day and a beautiful setting with something for all ages. Would deter visitors from Wooky Hole as over priced and tacky(nearly £60 for a family of 4). Some nice countryside walks nearby and overall a very nice stay.
