Tordown Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #19 of 53 Glastonbury B&B and Inns

Reviewed September 6, 2011

Just relax and let the peace wash over you.Tordown is a home from home.it is spotless and the breakfast is great.The juices are so different from "normal" ones.You can really taste the difference from concentrates.The spelt bread is so very tasty.
All the beds are very comfortable and the rooms are very well appointed.
The toiletries are all as natural as can be.I loved the new huge towels in Room 9.
We were lucky with the weather and managed to sit in the garden looking over the levels and watching a good variety of birdlife.We were lucky enough to see the badgers enjoying their supper.There were also dragonflies.The garden goes from strength to strength and the new fruit trees look good.
Cheryl and Michael were their usual charming happy selves.Their ready laughs are quite infectious.Nothing is too much trouble and their serenity is unflappable.I am convinced that if there were an earythquake (God forbid) they would pick themselves up and offer their services to anyone who needed it with a cheerful smile and some calming words.Tordown has to be the best B&B anywhere!

Unfortunately we only had one day to spend in Glastonbury, but made the most of it and stayed overnight at "Tordown" - a peaceful guesthouse on the outskirts of town at the foot of the famous Tor. (There is a path to the summit just a short distance from the house.)

The Amethyst Room that we had was of high specification, very comfortable and with a fine view. Everything, from the quality toiletries to the adjustable lighting showed consideration, and we had a great night's sleep in the spacious bed.

Breakfast was generous with a range of tasty options, plus the bonus of some very good homemade bread. Our hostess was friendly without being obtrusive and we felt at all times entirely at ease.

For those looking for the total Zen experience, there is a spa at the guesthouse along with a range of alternative therapies. We lacked the time to indulge but at least now have an excuse to return! Overall, a wonderful place to revitalize.

I have just returned from a lovely week at Tordown, I had been attending a doula course in the area and chose Tordown as my b&b. Both Cheryl and Michael were very welcoming. I stayed in the Single Room - Rose. the room had its own toilet and basin and next door was the bathroom, although not ensuite it felt like it was. The hospitality tray was replenished every day with plentifull tea, coffe, and herbal teas and plenty of milk. i would not hesitate in recommending Tordown as a place to stay.

Cheryl and Michael offer their guests a place to unwind and relax. Tordown is set below the Tor and overlooks the glorious views of the Somerset levels. The rooms are beautiful and I had a good night's sleep for the first time in ages. Breakfast is delicious with homemade bread, organic vegetarian food and superb coffee! Tordown is a place to return to as it is a good base for not only Glastonbury (15 minute walk) but also for visiting other areas such as Wells.

I would highly recommend Tordown and have already booked myself in for the Autumn.

Thank you Cheryl and Michael for a lovely stay.
