We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Lilac Cottage! It was great to be able to cook when we wanted, and relax when we wanted. Nick has hundreds of pictures of the property to process and upload to Flickr. The property is beautiful and the weather was perfect! Linda and John are wonderful people, and we just loved the puppy therapy with Logan, their black Labrador Retriever.
Being able to stay at Lilac Cottage was the highlight of our trip!
Everything has been thought of, all you need to do is turn up and open the door. No queuing at hotel desks here. It takes about 10 minutes to drive to Glastonbury and is a lovely drive. Shops are colourful with unique items for yourself and as gifts. Get the Tor bus (every half hour from Abbey car park) walk up then walk down the other path past the wishing tree and to the Chalice Well gardens. Take an empty bottle or 2 to fill from the spring at the lions head, and a wee towel so you can bathe your feet in the healing spa. Glastonbury Abbey is a must, your ticket allows you to pop in and out all day but take a picnic and enjoy the 36 acres of tranquility. The wholefood supermarket at the top of the high street is awesome, and there are plenty of cafes, our favourite was Rainbows End. Really lovely people in Glastonbury and amazing energy.
The Owners are lovely , friendly ,helpful and informative .
the cottage was well equipped ,clean with plenty of tea and coffee, milk to greet us when we arrived .
This is a great place to use as a base for travelling around somerset
A bonus is the pub next door that serves reasonable food and allow dogs in & from the rear of the property you can see the wonderful Glastonbury Tor.
The only reason we did not award more is the fact that as other reviews have mentioned, is the noise from the main road , that sadly did disturb us , but until you try you don't really know ...do you ????
Would we return ??? ...if the rafters were kingspanned with double acoustic boards and an additional set of double glazing fitted to each window .......Deffo .
Having said all that , if your the sort that fall off into the land of nod as soon as your head hits the pillow then book here , you wont be disappointed .
Nice little barn conversion attached to owners home that had everything you could need for a short break - or longer if it suits. The stairs to the loft double bedroom are a little steep and could be a problem for anyone with a walking or stair climbing problem, but its a big space and easy to use. WiFi and TV reception very good. We didn't cook but everything in place to do so. Beds very comfortable although the double one upstairs has a beam on one side that you have to watch in the night! Julie the owner is very friendly and a lovely dog greets you!
We loved the cottage. It was a great base for visiting Glastonbury and Bath.
The Wi-Fi really impressed the teenagers and kept them entertained in our down time.
Thank you for letting us stay, I would highly recommend the accommodation and we would love to stay again.
