First of all, the House is great. Situated beautifully beneath the Tor of Glastonbury within easy reach - only climbing over the fence at the rear of the garden (careful, barbwire) and nearly already at the top!
Having been booked into the "Dove Room" we were looking at the grounds as stated on the webpage. The Room itself was clean (but cobwebbs covering the edges of the Room), the en-suite bathroom is spacious and fairly new with great shower facilities.
Staying at the B&B just after the famous Glastonbury Festival we anticipated Somerset inconvinience. As we gave our approximatly arrival time the owner seemed quite astounded to find us at her Home. We were then shown to the breakfastroom (1 Big Table for all guests) and nearly forgotten.
The breakfast was served at said table, no menus or nicely set up Table present. The Food was cooked to the liking and fresh locally produkts have eben used.
After serving the Food the owner closed the door and you fehlt somehow shut off and unwelcomed.
