You will feel your worries lifting as you turn onto our long drive through the woods and emerge at the end with the iconic Glastonbury Tor in clear view upon the horizon. With the woods now behind you; giving protection from the outside world far-reaching, spectacular, panoramic views meeting the big open sky will welcome you. The fields around have been planted with wild flowers and has been set up as a wildlife sanctuary. So expect to see a whole host of creatures such as: Roe Deer, Foxes, Hares, Rabbits, Badgers, Kestrels, Swallows, our Barn Owl (hopefully!) and our resident Common Pipistrelle bats who live in the Log cabin to name but a few.

We just arrived with my boyfriend from a wonderful break in the countryside at Claire's place. The place was exactly as described, or even better. We had everything we needed and were surrounded by beautiful nature. Everything was in good working conditions and all eco-friendly. Electricity was generated by a solar panel and the rest of the appliances worked with gas. This is the perfect place if you want to take a break from the city, switch off your phone and connect with nature and whoever you are travelling with. You will need a car if you want to go to the supermarket or if you want to see the surroundings. Perfect place to see the countryside at dusk, just magic! I think that everybody should visit a place like this one at least once a year, but make sure you check the weather before. If you have sunny days it is just the perfect spot! Many thanks Claire for the delicious scons and the cider from Somerset! We enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely be back next summer!
