Melrose House BB is a georgian house situated at the foot of Glastonbury Tor (a hop over the fence and you are at Chalice Well Spring and Glastonbury Tor). A four star ETB rated property with all ensuite rooms, all of which have fantastic garden views. Its gardens surround the property and lend it to having a tranquil feel. Melrose House is suitable for groups visiting Glastonbury, individual bookings and we delight in welcoming back repeat guests. We are a ten minute walk from Glastonbury High Street, a five minute drive to Street and within ten minutes drive to the city of Wells. Millfield Prep School is within walking distance and Millfield Senior School is in Street (five minutes drive). We are lucky to have private parking to the sides of the main house on our driveway.

With the wonderful sunny weather this summer lots of guests/visitors to Glastonbury have enjoyed walking up the Tor. We have enjoyed sorting the garden out this summer - we know how lucky we are to be able to access the Tor and Chalice Well from our grounds. Thank you for taking the time to do a review.

My partner and I booked one night at this B&B while driving through the country. Had we known how lovely it was and how welcome we would feel, we would have stayed at Melrose House for longer. Sarah was a wonderful host who was incredibly accommodating and just lovely to chat
