Located right in the centre of Glastonbury opposite the Abbey Ruins is Naish House, a highly impressive town house and home of The Covenstead B&B.
The whole house from doorstep to rafters is filled to the brim with amazing furniture, esoteric wall art and mysterious occult artefacts and books. There is no mistaking that when you cross the threshold, you are leaving the 'normal' world behind and stepping into a fantastically comfortable, magical space where you are made more welcome and 'at home' than anywhere else I have ever stayed.
The entrance hall is adorned with 'Witchy' things and the beautiful large front room is available for guests to use. It is also possible to arrange to use it for gatherings and workshops by prior arrangement. The dining room is simply spectacular with the largest bespoke and highly ornate table and chairs I have ever seen, On the walls are displayed various artworks and spiritual writings.
The Bedrooms are simply excellent.
Bedroom 1: Furnished in cream, silver & white with distressed furniture and a four-poster bed, this room has generous proportions and an excellent en-suite.
I should point out that all of the bathrooms are well kitted out and exceptionally clean!!!!
Bedroom 2: Furnished in black, gold and rich, dark, luxuriant colours with a huge four-poster bed and beautiful en-suite. Very large room.
Upstairs on the top floor are 2 more bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms, a superb guest kitchen with fridge, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities and 'chill-out' lounge, furnished with old leather chairs, sofas, tv & dvd player.
Bedroom 3: Furnished with a fantastically ornate carved bed, wooden wardrobes and drawers and fur/pelt covers. It has a rustic hunters rest feel about it. This is the smallest room and the bathroom is separate - although only a couple of feet away.
Bedroom 4:The Family room - furnished with an attractive and comfortable Queensize bed and a separate single bed. Fairies adorn the wall in this room so it is child friendly. Another great en-suite with large shower and full size bath. This room does not look out onto the Abbey grounds like the others.
When you check in, Adele makes you so welcome and asks you to fill in your choices from a delicious and extensive breakfast menu. Breakfast time is fairly flexible and where possible Adele will arrange a time to suit you. If you have special dietary requirements they are more than happy to accommodate them where they can
I have stayed here as part of a conference party, with friends, for a Halloween Festival and just as a family. Everyone who I have recommended it to has absolutely loved the place as much for its warm and comfortable atmosphere as its unique esoteric & occult theme.
Room prices vary between £70 - £90 per room per night and it is well worth it!
We have booked to go back again - can't wait!!!
