“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 26 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Summerhouse was the ideal week long self-catering stay! It's in the quiet countryside near Glastonbury,nestled in the garden behind the owner's house, but within easy drive of lots of interesting sites. Caroline smoothly manages the tricky concept of being available to help,but not intrusive...and she's very nice as well!
The place is immaculately clean ( a must for us!),roomy, very modern,comfortable (loved the shower!),and with everything you would need,and some extras,besides.
Thanks, Caroline,for the wine,which was delicious (crisps were good,too),and for all the little thoughtful touches you add. We really appreciated the written instructions for appliances,etc. since every place is a little different,especially coming from the US.
We would stay again in a heartbeat!

“Peaceful hideaway with wonderful countryside”
Reviewed 26 March 2017 for a stay in September 2016

Wonderfully relaxing hideaway with all the amenities you would need to take it easy. Great walks in countryside and Glastonbury is only a few miles away. we really enjoyed sitting out in the garden and chilling out. The Summerhouse is modern, light and airy but also warm and cosy if the nights are a bit cold. We'll visit again!

“An amazing Glastonbury hideaway”
Reviewed 22 March 2017 for a stay in June 2015

Three of us were guests at The Summerhouse during Glastonbury...we couldn't face camping in the mud and chose to stay off-site this time.
After an incredibly long journey we reached this little oasis of peaceful countryside. What a DELIGHT!! Comfortable and stylish, compact and immaculately clean. Lots of little welcoming extras too.
I loved my early morning coffees watching the sunrise with Glastonbury Tor in the distance...bliss!
A little mention for the incredible personalised service from the owner Caroline, who even ferried us backwards and forwards sometimes, in and out of the festival...above and beyond all of our expectations.
The Summerhouse really is top class accommodation and we would highly recommend it.

“What a hidden gem!”
Reviewed 21 March 2017 for a stay in November 2016

Our stay here was lovely. Caroline was such a great host and the summerhouse is the perfect place to relax for a few days. The house is very stylish with every little detail carefully considered. Everything was spotlessly clean too!

The place is in a great location with Glastonbury only a short drive away. We easily made it up the Tor on a bright and windy November day.

We would love to come back again and enjoy the gorgeous garden in the summer sunshine.

Choosing to stay at this hidden gem is a decision you won't regret.

Sam

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have just returned from 2 nights away in The Summerhouse. We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return. The Summerhouse is spotlessly clean, light, bright and airy. It is furnished with brightly coloured, modern and tasteful furnishings.
The bathroom is equipped with a beautifully warm and powerful shower and the underfloor heating makes it toasty and warm all the way through into the bedroom.
The bedroom is spacious, with a very comfortable double bed, wardrobe and drawers and stunning views out across the countryside.
The kitchen comes equipped with mugs, cutlery, pots and pans- all of the essential things needed for a self catering trip away.
The views across the fields and the majestic Glastonbury Tor are breathtaking and gives the sense of peace.
The Summerhouse is very well situated and close to Glastonbury, whilst still feeling rural. It would be a fantastic base for exploring nearby Wells, Wookey and Cheddar.
The thing I loved most about The Summerhouse is the little personal touches. Caroline has done a wonderful job of making it feel like a home from home. A little handwritten note, a bottle of wine on arrival- just small but lovely things that make you feel welcome and the feeling she would be on hand if you needed anything. And yet at the same time she gives you privacy and space.
We really did have a lovely time away- we only wish could've stayed longer. We would certainly return.

“Excellent Visit”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed here a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Summer House is one of several holiday properties up and down the country where we think "we'll stay there again". Well, it's the first one where we've actually done so, and we enjoyed it as much this time as we did the first.

Liked best: It's clean, comfortable with onsite parking, close to Glastonbury, but out in the country - it doesn't get much better than that.
