“Like a second home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I have stayed at Moonstone Cottage on several occassions.
The minute I walk into Moonstone I feel relaxed and comfortable.
The Cottage is a period cottage which has been tastefully and sympathetically decorated by the thoughtful and considerate owner. From the wood burning stove in the lounge to the delightful rear garden which backs onto and has views of the Abbey grounds.
Moonstone is ideally located, being only a couple of minutes flat walk to Glastonbury High street with its shops, restaurants and pubs.
On a practical note, there is an off street parking area at the front of the cottage, so you will not need to use your car during your stay.
If you dont want to eat or drink out in Glastonbury, there are 3 supermarkets in the locale where you can buy supplys, and then cook in the well equipped kitchen and eat in the dinning area or on an outside table in the garden.

The owner always provides a number of up-to-date leaflets, booklets and maps of Glastonbury and its attractions for guests

The view of the Tor from front bedroom window is a magestic.

The ambiance of Moonstone Cottage compliments the charms of Glastonbury perfectly.

“Just lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We chose to spend Christmas at Moonstone Cottage as we wanted a nice relaxed and chilled out time...what a great choice we made!

The cottage is perfect, infact we would buy it exactly as is tomorrow - if it were for sale! It was cosy and homely and just the right place to get away from our busy lives.

Katarina, although quite poorly at the time, was lovely and had thought of everything. We were greeted with cake wine and bubbly to be enjoyed throughout our stay, which was a really nice touch and the cottage was very well equipped in every way.

Although we were 2 couples, we managed with the double bedroom and bunk beds. The only thing we would suggest is perhaps another armchair in the lounge, but that didn't cause too many problems. There was also a great selection of games and DVDs which we took advantage of as the weather wasn't very nice.

All in all a fabulous little property that we will definitely be returning to in the future!

Thank you, how wonderful! We are pleased to report there is now another arm chair in the lounge. We have replaced the one in the bay window which had arms but was not a soft lounger. Yes we had that dreadful flu over Christmas, horrid. We are so delighted you had a good time at Moonstone Cottage. It was great to meet you and interesting to have a chat.

“The place to stay in Glastonbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Completely perfect. The cottage has been very recently and perfectly renovated. Furnishings are fantastic and there were chocolates, wine and scented candles burning for our arrival. Spotlessly clean.
Central heating plus an open fire. Quite small although if the weather is nice there is lots of living space out the back garden with a patio.

Would not recommend for more than 4 people (small family) but would recommend it highly for a stay... walk to town and the famous Tor.
No clothes dryer was the only negative ( the owner lives next door and is happy to dry a load for you but with the English weather a clothes dryer is really a massive plus) Wi Fi included.

Thank you for reviewing Moonstone Cottage - it was great to meet your lovely family. Our first dryer has become an essential I wouldn't do without. Not sure how we managed before (what with sheets and towels as well as our clothes). However we hope guests will be happy to use our dryer for the time being (space factor) and thanks to your comments we will make sure to mention this on every check-in :) Many thanks.

“Atmospheric cottage, beautifully presented.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Moonstone Cottage is a great place to stay. There's a wealth of character and the owner takes every care to ensure the cottage is well equipped for a happy stay.
There's a great garden overlooking Glastonbury Abbey gardens and the Tor can be seen from the living room window. The Chalice Well is a 5 minute walk and the High St not much further.
We had a great time here and would highly recommend it.

Thank you so much. If only our sun dance had worked.... the summer weather this year :( We notice you gave 4 stars for cleanliness of bathroom (feeling a tad mortified - very house proud, me) and suspect it's because we need to re-silicone on one side of the bath (mould showing through). One day break between bookings this Friday, so it will be done then. Thanks also for your other lovely comments in the guest book. Love and light.

“Everything is here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This cottage was perfect for our family of four adults for two nights. Our hostess had thought of everything - from wood for the fireplace to earplugs next to the bed. So quaint and comfortable. I'm usually mentally rearranging the decor of many places we stay but here was no need to do that here! Local art is on display in every room. The garden is also very inviting and lovely. It is convenient to walk anywhere around town including the farmers' market on Tuesday and the local grocery store. Katerina and David were very helpful and friendly with whatever we desired. On our trip, this was my favorite accommodation and in hindsight, my only regret is not staying longer!

Thank you so much for reviewing us, lovely surprise. It's great you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the cottage. I relate to the tendency to re-arrange places (and colours)in my mind, good thing you didn't have to spend your energy on this at Moonstone :) We wondered how the rest of your UK trip went and hope you had a fantastic time. Bright blessings to you all in Ohio.
