“A beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed October 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Moonstone Cottages is an absolute gem there are views of The Tor from the front of the cottage and the Abbey Gardens at the rear - What more could anyone want?Katarina is a lovely lady - always happy to help in anyway she can and the welcome bottle of wine and chocolates a real treat. The cottage is situated withing 10 minutes of the town centre and Abbey and approx 15 minutes in the opposite direction to the base of The Tor.
This is a cottage not to be missed!!!
This is our second visit and we have already booked for 2015

Thank you so much for this review! It was great to see you again, and lovely you will return next year.

NB the Tor and Chalice Well are actually only 5 minutes walk away, and the High Street is about 10 mins walk in the opposite direction. Moonstone sits 'in between' the High Street, Abbey and Tor... :)

“Warm inviting comfortable cosy peaceful cottage in heart of Glastonbury.”

We were met with the warm glow of a lit log burner and beautiful candle light, on a dark night after a horrendous journey. Katarina was all smiles and reassuring and lovely to meet. The first impression of the cottage was how perfect and beautiful and clean and warm it was. Thick walls and insulated well, warm colours inside. She greeted us with a special home made drink and treats, made just for us(!) and delicious snacks for my son.
The next morning we were able to relax and then explore the beautiful secluded garden leading onto the Abbey walls and overlooking the expanse there. Again Katarina and her family made us feel very welcome and were 'on tap' if needed for anything. This cottage is a joy to come back to after exploring various parts of Glastonbury or going out shopping and we will definitely be booking again for a longer visit, as soon as we can. My son loved staying there too, the beds were so comfortable and the linen top quality. Thank you so much! :)

“Beautiful Moonstone Cottage!”
Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Last summer stay at Moonstone Cottage was our third stay in this beautiful place. It's a perfect place to stay in Glastonbury with small children as we did. Wonderful hosts, Katarina and David providing everything needed to have a great stay. The cottage is clean, well equipped, delightfully decorated and very cosy. The garden is a great place to stay and play or relax, especially with children. Katarina was really helpful providing toys, a small swimming pond and everything needed for keeping the children busy. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the busy High street, with all the nice cafees and shops. And just a few minutes walk from Chalice Wells and the Tor footpath. Moonstone Cottage has a very special atmosphere, and for us there is no other place to stay when we are visiting Glastonbury.

“Magical”
Reviewed October 3, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Not our first time in glastonbury, but our first stay at moonstone cottage.
We had the most wonderfull time and will return for sure next year.
We loved all the lovely details and enjoyed the garden very much. No need to bring a book as there is a wonderfull collection right at hand.
The vieuws over the abbey grounds are peacefull and the cottage is equiped with all the things you you have at home. The owners makes you feel more than welcome...

“Charming cottage in great location”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

Moonstone cottage is a lovely and special place to be. It is well-equipped and has a calm atmosphere. The garden is attractive and overlooks the Abbey park. The cottage is in walking distance of the Tor, the Chalice Well gardens, Wearyall Hill and the town centre with its many shops and cafes. The cottage has much interesting information on local walks (try the walk to the ancient oak trees Gog and Magog along Paradise Lane) and also further afield.

Katarina and David were never intrusive but hospitable and there when needed.

Liked best: There's much to like. We liked just being there, being able to leave the car and walk to the town centre and sites, the garden, the homely feel.
Liked least: The cottage is just so nice and we loved everything about it. Glastonbury roads were busier than previously experienced but no doubt due to the build up to the renowned music festival.

“Moonstruck at Moonstone”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

I went for a spiritual recharge and writing holiday and Moonstone cottage was the perfect venue. It feels very cozy and comfortable. It is clean and has every sort of amenity that you might look for. Perfect size for solo, a couple or a couple with children. It also has a nice library of books and dvds for adults, children and spiritualists. Everything is well documented in terms of how things work.

Probably the most magical part of the cottage is the back garden and raised terrace overlooking Glastonbury Abbey--a wonderful setting for reading, having a glass of wine, watching the moon or gazing at the Abbey grounds. At night, the garden has lights with timers. In the dark, the garden becomes a mystical wonderland for great conversations and silent contemplation.

Katarina and her husband are gracious hosts, always available next door, and full of tips on how to enjoy Glastonbury. She also makes a fantastic Finnish version of apple crumb cake.

As magical as Moonstone cottage is, it doesn't have the power to change the English countryside weather which started off a little dreary but ended on a high note. Short of weather control, I can't think of a thing that I would change about the cottage and the experience. Hope to return soon.
