This stunning semi-detached blue lias stone converted barn nestles in a quiet setting yet is just a short stroll from an array of amenities in the vibrant heart of Glastonbury, and provides a relaxing family retreat.

Stroll out directly from the property and into the heart of Glastonbury where you will find an array of independent eateries alongside bookshops, jewellers, crystal shops, clothing boutiques, and galleries. In addition to the shops and restaurants the famous Chalice Well Gardens and Glastonbury Abbey and Tor are also well worth a visit and fascinating places to visit. Alternatively jump in your car or on the local bus and enjoy a trip to Wells, the smallest city in England and famed for its Cathedral and Bishops Palace. Other attractions and places of interest accessible from here include Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, the Shapwick Nature Reserve, and discount shopping at the Clarks Village and Kilver Court.

Step inside this gorgeous property and you will immediately find yourself in the beautifully characterful sitting room which boasts a warming woodburner effect gas fire and bi-folding doors to outside meaning that you can dine alfresco with ease during warm weather. Here is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring and the inclusion of a Smart TV provides extra entertainment whatever the weather. From here head further inside and into the kitchen/diner which boasts a set of French doors leading to outside and has been lovingly presented in a rustic yet beautifully refined style. Here is a perfect venue for laid back dining and the hand-crafted bespoke kitchen is also perfectly appointed and offers a great range of appliances including a gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and also a dishwasher. There is also a useful ground floor WC with a washing machine located just off the lounge. Venture up the stairs and onto the first floor where you will then discover the pretty bedrooms, both boasting stunning vaulted ceilings and exposed apex beams. The first bedroom is an elegant master king-size with a luxurious feature roll-top bath in the bedroom, and the second a beautifully cosy twin room. Sat beside these rooms and completing the offering inside the property is a lovely contemporary shower room with WC.

Heading outside further highlights await in the shape of a fabulous enclosed patio area complete with a herb garden, dog shower, garden furniture and a fire-pit and BBQ. Here is a superb place to dine outside in the fresh air or just enjoy a pre dinner drink on the patio. Guests also benefit from access to a shared secluded area of lawn overlooking a neighbouring community nature reserve/dog-walking field. Private off-road parking for two cars is also provided.

A lovely cottage just far enough out of Glastonbury to make you feel you're in the countryside. Ten minute max walk into the town for some lovely cafes, the abbey and of course access to the Tor, which is a must. Wassail had everything we needed for a great few days exploring Glastonbury, Wells and some retail therapy at Street. Garden is super safRead moree for dogs. Only down side was perhaps not having full TV channels but believe this can be overcome if you know how to plug laptop into TV. Hide

Charming cottage walking distance to Glastonbury town and supermarkets. Comfortable beds and good cooking equipment if you want to cook. We loved the interior design as it went well with the age of the building which is a lovely old barn. Would highly recommend!

Fantastic cottage, fabulous location, peaceful, comfortable - just perfect. Great cottage for two adults, one teenager and a dog. Excellent access to the town on foot and the road network for trips out. There is somewhere to walk the dog first thing - but it is really peaceful too, and tucked away from the traffic.

What a beautiful barn conversion Wassail is, it has been done by the wonderful owner with great taste. It was spotlessly clean. There is off road parking and a small garden thats a real sun trap.

It also makes a great base to visit other attractions e.g. Wells, Bath, Wooky Hole, Stonehenge etc. Definitely stay here again Hide
