Reviewed 4 August 2012

We were greeted pleasantly and made to feel at home. All weekend it felt like being at home with full use of the house and to come and go as we pleased. We settled in the lounge and were able to use the kitchen at any time. There was also very pleasant company with the other guests.

It was a blessing that I could stay from 2 until 22 June 2012 with my groups in Berachah and looking already forwards to stay there next year. From my heart I thank Jan Billings, the owner and guardian angel from Berachah, for making the time we spend in Berachah so special and make at ‘our’ home. The angel rooms are beautiful with comfortable beds and \Jan keeps the kitchen very well-stocked do-it-yourself kitchen well-stocked with vegetarian breakfast-fixings and healthy snacks, with is all included in the price!
I also like to others know that Berachah is on the slopes of the Holy Tor and 1 minute walking from the White Spring, with not only makes it a high energetic place to stay , but also the center to visits all the magic and beautiful places in Glastonbury. Its only 10 minutes walking to the shopping street and the many restaurants.
With Love and gratitude to Jan, Donny Heuvelmans www.cosmicflower.nl

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. the views are spectacular. Each room has access to some lovely garden spot or another, and the atmosphere within is both comfortable and peaceful. Lovely art adorns the walls - original creations from Jan, who keeps a discreet and friendly eye on the kitchen to ensure it remains stocked with whatever goodies it seems her guests enjoy most (provided no animal flesh is preferred - guests are requested to indulge any appetite for such elsewhere). And such lovely goodies - both delicious and healthful!
Every day some friendly person comes to ensure the guest house is clean and well cared for. All the people I've met who were associated with the place have been wonderful, including the taxi driver Jan will recommend if asked.
Situated as it is on the slopes of the Tor, lovely walks every day are guaranteed; and if it's rest that's wanted instead, a rather interesting library awaits discovery below.

If one has an interest in the mystical side of Avalon, one could not ask for a better location in Glastonbury. Right on the lower slope of the Tor and next to one of the public paths up the Tor itself, it also (as advertised) sits across the street from the Chalice Well and (omitted in the advertising) next door (on the other side) to the White Well. It's within walking distance of the Abbey Ruins and High Street, and has amazing views.

The outside looks disconcertingly modern for an antiquities-starved American, but the locale has history enough regardless of the plaster erected upon it. I found the accommodations colorful, sunny, and pleasant, the bed comfortable, and all facilities reasonably good. My bath-tub was surprisingly deep and good for a long soak after walking too much trying to see every beautiful thing in Glastonbury.

Jan Billings, the hostess, does a remarkable job of unobtrusively tending the needs of her guests, always gracious and accommodating. She keeps the kitchen well-stocked with vegetarian breakfast-fixings and healthy snacks, with an eye out for whatever people use the most. Breakfast itself is pretty much do-it-yourself, no schedule or pressure, and you can also use the kitchen at any time to fix yourself whatever you please, which can save a huge amount of money. When one guest brought a ham she did not make a fuss about it. If one prefers pub-food, The Rifleman's Arms is a short stroll away. The kitchen does not have measuring cups or measuring spoons, and a microwave but not a regular oven, so no baking, but she does provide above-average ready-made bread.

She offers an extensive esoteric library, plus books on art and travel, magazines on the coffee-table in the same vein, and a wealth of pamphlets on local attractions and services. She also provides television and WiFi, for when you're too tuckered out to visit one more fascinating site.

Whenever I travel to Glastonbury I stay at Berachah and I love the place!. Every room has a cosy atmosphere and lovely work from Jan adorns the walls, making the room magical gems. I love 'my view' over the valley of Avalon as seen from the kitchen. Breakfast consists of bread, eggs, cheese, tomatoes. marmite, marmelade, yoghurt, coffee, tea and the kettle purrs continually in the kitchen.There is always a selection of fresh fruit. Downstairs there is a library with a good selection of books to keep you company before or when you turn in. Berachah is right next to the path that leads you up to the Tor. From the lilac room you look over magical Chalice Well. From the pink room you go onto a private patio.There is lots of privacy in this lovely place, I cannot recommend it enough and Jan is a gem. It is pricier than most other B7B's in Glastonbury but I find the peace and quiet well worth the money. Enjoy your stay!

I had the pleasure of staying Berachah this past February. Whenever i have privalege of traveling abroad, i stay with Jan Billings at Berachah. The location is right at Chalice Well, easy walking distance to Glasonbury. The hospitality is the best, the beds soo comfortable, the fridge stocked with everything you need to survive he he, great book selection in the drawing room, i just can't imagine staying any where else. This is my third time at this most wonderful bed and breakfast, i would encourage all to partake in a true Glastonbury experience. Nancy White

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, you can not get a bad room here.
