Berachah sits on the slopes of the Glastonbury Tor, a hill overlooking the Isle of Avalon. This ancient site is a mythical place near the legendary healing waters of The Chalice Well Gardens. Berachah (which means ‘place of special spiritual blessing’) is the perfect stay for those looking to escape the trappings of modern life in favor of a few days of peace. The split-level house has a breakfast room with panoramic views of the countryside and several tranquil rooms in which guests can rest and relax in, which range from £55-90 per night.
Keep it simple in this 17th-century farmhouse located in Meare. Just a few miles from Glastonbury’s bustling town center, Street’s quiet countryside, and England’s smallest cathedral city of Wells, Meare is an idyllic central location in Somerset. The rooms are cozy and warm and decorated in subdued colors for optimal relaxation. The owners serve their guests with a smile and keep the farmhouse in fantastic condition. Breakfast can be provided, and rooms range from about £50-80.
This historic house is located in the village of Meare, which is about 3 miles northwest of Glastonbury. The monks of Glastonbury Abbey historically owned much of Meare Manor, which was rebuilt in 1802 and fully renovated in 2001. The guest house is well situated to travel to Glastonbury, Wells, and the Avalon Marshes. The nine rooms and restaurant are elegantly decorated, and outdoor seating is available on the grounds. The manor has free wi-fi and parking, and free port and sherry are included in each room. The peaceful location is a superb home base for a holiday exploring Somerset.
On the opposite side of the spectrum from Shapwick House is Little Upton Cider Barn, about 11 miles south of Glastonbury. This tiny cottage has one bedroom and can sleep up to two guests, making the cozy converted barn great for a romantic retreat or a peaceful escape. Guests can visit the three local pubs and watch the wildlife on a walk along the Somerset Levels, and then come back to the barn to enjoy the bubbling warm water in the hot tub or swim in the on-site pool. Bookings in this charming cottage starts at £75 per night.
