I stayed for 4 nights and the rooms are quite comfortable. I would not consider staying elsewhere if I return to Glastonbury. I came to fall in love with the atmosphere. If I do return, it will feel like home. There are not many b&bs you can say that about.
This b&b is also a spirital retreat that offers healing, spiritual counseling, yoga, readings, even regressions to a past life. But the magic is the owner who has been teaching yoga and spiritual practices since the 60s. She creates a incredible atmosphere of warmth and harmony. When you sit down for breakfast it feels more like you are visiting a friends home, than a hotel.
They have two wonderful border collie dogs that add to the charm. And a backyard that is stunning for a mainstreet b&b.
There are a few things that could possibly dissuade you from visiting. They prefer to maintain a calm atmosphere. For this reason, they do not have televisions and prefer that you abstain from using computers (there is no wi-fi). Also, they lock the front door at 11pm.
They only have three guest rooms, so book well in advance.
One last tidbit. If you take the bus from Wells or Bristol (376), it stops in front of the b&b (the first stop in Glastonbury).
