Had an amazing time . So easy to book the week which gives you a hint of how relaxing the stay will be. We loved every moment . Fantastic location, 10 mins from Glastonbury . Great day trip. Beautiful view of the TOR from the bedroom. Richard is an amazing host . The house is so cozy and comfortable . We felt at home from the moment we arrived . And can't forget Torrey (the dog) ... we extended an extra day , would even have stayed longer if possible . Very peaceful and grounding property.
We will def be back, can't wait .
We stayed here at The Cider House for seven nights. What a special place steeped in history, the cider press in the cottage was amazing. Wonderful views for miles around, and peace. The cottage was so comfortable and we slept like babies. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk to glastonbury tor with the maps provided. We loved being able to spend time with Tori the dog, Arthur the donkey and Laddie the Pony. Richard went out of his way to make us welcome. It made our little boys day to help Richard tend the beehives in child size beekeeper suit provided. After soaking up a the lovely atmosphere here our batteries have been well charged. We will definetely be back.
We recently spent 5 nights at the Cider House, Old Farm and had the most brilliant time.
The accommodation and location were beyond our expectations and our host Richard was very welcoming. As well as being extremely interesting to talk to about the area of Glastonbury and the history of his fabulous property, he is really very kind and generous. Our daughter loved getting involved in feeding the donkey and riding the pony, collecting the chickens eggs and learning about bees. The Cider house itself is a charming, comfortable cottage and is equipped with everything you could need. Admittedly the wifi was a bit limited for our teenagers but that suited us parents because we were there to get away from virtual reality and to explore this fascinating part of the real world! From Old Farm we were able to visit a number of places in the 5 days including Glastonbury itself, Bath and Bristol, Wells and Wookey Caves and even we ventured to Exeter one day. We loved our Easter break in Somerset and hope to be able to visit Old Farm again in the future.
This weekend away at The Cider House was to celebrate my fiancee's birthday and catch up with one of my brothers and his girlfriend. We usually stay in Glastonbury but due to us booking late a lot of the hotels and B+B's were fully booked due to the Glastonbury Carnival taking place so we decided to try out The Cider House. This was a wonderful long weekend stay, extremely quiet and relaxing. We were warmly welcomed by the owner Richard plus his dog Tori - a wonderfully loving dog:) The house was full of character, clean and was warm for our arrival. The double beds were extremely comfortable and large and none of us had any complaints with being warm when the wind blew and the temperature dropped in the evening/night. The drive into town takes a mere 5 minutes and there is a good description of how to walk to the Tor from the house. We all got to say hello to the rescued donkey, Arthur, and shetland pony, Laddie, who were both vocal and happy to nibble down carrots that were presented to them both. We all came away agreeing that we would definitively consider staying here again.
