The cottage is in a small village & on a bus route. One great pub in walking distance, & a cafe/bistro (Hartleys) just 1 mile for an amazing gastro treat. We welcome couples, familes and friends. Children love it & will want to return, in fact we get many return bookings. Try the Spindle Quiz can you find the clues? Relax in our pretty garden.

Plenty of wonderful walks, & many N.T. properties near by also Longlete is very popular for all ages as is Wells the smallest city in England. Lots of quirky places to see in Glastonbury.
