Our stay at Rose Cottage, Glastonbury

Posted on

During the half term holiday we took a much needed break, hopping over the Dorset border to explore Somerset.

When we travel, we always look to stay in a holiday cottage or apartment as it gives the kids more space than a hotel room and we found a gorgeous holiday cottage in Glastonbury on Airbnb.

Set in the village of West Pennard, it is a short 5 minute drive into the town of Glastonbury, but it is well worth being out of town for the peace and quiet and the stunning views over Glastonbury Tor.

The cottage is a new build and has been tastefully decorated with quality furniture throughout.

The cottage is very well equipped, with everything that you could possibly want for a stay, including plates and cutlery for the kids as well as the adults and plenty of cleaning materials.

There are two bedrooms, both with plenty fo storage for when you unpacked and both have ensuite bathrooms.

The master bedroom is downstairs and has double doors onto the rear garden, perfect for an early morning cup of coffee and the bathroom has an integrated bath and shower.


The upstairs bedroom is a twin room and has the beautiful views over Glastonbury Tor, again with plenty of storage.

The ensuite bathroom upstairs has a large walk-in shower, toilet and sink.

We have been lucky enough to stay in some lovely locations, but what struck me about this airbnb was the sheer attention to detail. When we arrived we were greeted with a gorgeous welcome basket, plenty of tea and coffee and a fridge containing milk, butter and bread. Perfect for tea and biscuits after a long drive.

There are separate thermostats for upstairs and downstairs, underfloor heating (perfect for October), the bedside lamps have USB charging points and a Smart TV downstairs with full access to Sky TV and Wifi. There is even a utility room with a washing machine and tumble drier for you to use.


Outside, the cottage has its own separate driveway with parking for several cars, a lovely grass area at the front with a patio & table & chairs for outdoor dining with the gorgeous sunset views and a small paved area at the back with a comfy sofa for relaxing.

The cottage is the perfect base for exploring Somerset and we enjoyed visits to Fleet Air Arm Museum, Cheddar Gorge, Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare.

Have you visited Somerset before?

    What a lovely looking cottage to say at! I have to admit I’ve not been to Glastonbury but I would like to and if I ever do I’ll have to think about staying here.

    I’ve never been to Glastonbury before but it looks like a great UK destination to consider once Wales’ and England’s lockdowns have both ended. Rose Cottage looks like the ideal place to stay!

    That looks perfect for our little family of 4, we love staycations but Glastonbury is one place we’ve never been, I’ll put it on our post lockdown list!

Are we nearly there yet? is a new online blog run by me, Kara Guppy, and is named as such thanks to my daughter Eliza who always asks that very question when we are less than 5 minutes up the road heading off on our adventures. You may know me from my other family blog
