“The Bed and Breakfast of Dreams !”
Reviewed 3 October 2009

The best bed and breakfast I ever stayed and by far better than many hotels of 4 even 5 star. Huge rooms with lovely floral and home style decoration . A touch of class everywhere from the fresh flowers all over the place to the complimentary fresh fruits in the room. And the best bed you could imagine. It is like sleeping in a cloud (as I found out only the mattresses from Harrods costs 3000 Pounds each and really worth it). Art also is everywhere in the form of sculptures and paintings. There is a big green garden where you can sit, walk or play with the friendly dogs. The breakfast was really superb: home made jam, marmalades , a plate of first class variety of cheeses, another with fine ham and hot plate choices. Because we were a small group of friends we had booked all the rooms and felt like being guests in a beautiful villa with grate hosts. I would strongly recommend Chindit House to anyone who has high standards and appreciates good taste and elegance.

We booked a last minute honeymoon for a couple of days and we were really blessed to have found Chindit House.

We arrived and was welcomed by Peter with tea in his beautiful large garden, a real oasis that is right in the centre of Glastonbury. He could not do enough for us and he made us feel special throughout our stay.

The period house has works of art littered around and it is a real joy sitting in the large lounge.

Our room was clean, beautifully decorated and large. The extra touches in the room were more 4 star hotel than B&B, chocolates, fresh fruit, flowers, tea and coffee and top of the range shampoo.

The breakfast was simply great, it was served in a country kitchin and consisted of fresh local produce. Not only fresh fruit etc but a cheese board with wonderful somerset brie.

If you get the chance stay here, we will be going back just as soon as we can!

Chindit House, once a boarding house for Millfield School, may be pricey in terms of Glastonbury prices but it is well worth every penny. It's a beautiful period house with spacious, light rooms, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable, positioned within Glastonbury, but with a countryside calm.
My husband and I arrived on a foul, wet Saturday but our mood lifted as soon as we entered the house, which has the 'wow' factor about it. Thoughtful touches such as beautifully soft sheets, a basket of chocolates, foot cream and even nail polish made it a delight to spend the night there.
Not the place to go if you don't like dogs but since we do, we found the two residents dogs a lot of fun.
Peter Smith and Felicity Wright, the owners, are friendly and helpful, service was excellent, breakfast sumptous. Staying at Chindit House gives you a little taste of elegant, relaxed living and is a welcome sanctuary amidst the hustle and bustle of Glastonbury.
