Where to start??? Covenstead is a witchcraft and magic-themed B&B in the heart of Glastonbury. That doesn't even begin to describe this wonderful, luxurious, decadent place. The owner, Adele, has filled this lovely old house with a museum-quality collection of oddities, curios, strange and beautiful items. From the bazaars of Istanbul to ye olde curiosity shoppe, every nook and cranny has yet another piece to delight the eye, or stimulate the imagination. Our room was simply wonderful: picture a huge gold four-poster bed draped with silks and old oriental rugs, with black velvet bedding...... set in room decorated with old Chinese furniture and populated with pictures of the dark erotic goddess/woman in many forms. The rooms are massive. There is a large en-suite bathroom with a big shower enclosure and a full size bath.....mmmmm. Breakfasts are cooked perfectly, and to order, with a huge range of choices. There can't be many guesthouses where meals are eaten with a "hand of glory" under a glass dome as a centrepiece. Or if you prefer, you can sit next to the skeletal rams-head. Our hostess was wonderful - nothing was too much trouble, and she is extremely knowledgable and informative about...... well, just about everything. I think I'm running out of superlatives.....and I haven't even mentioned the mural - on the upper stairs and landing is a very impressive work in progress by well-known local artist Yuri Leitch. It's a lovely composition with Herne the Hunter, the goddess, a classical scene.... and more to come. All in all this was quite simply, wonderful and I can highly recommend the Covenstead to any discerning people out there. It is unique in the best possible way.
