We were met with the warm glow of a lit log burner and beautiful candle light, on a dark night after a horrendous journey. Katarina was all smiles and reassuring and lovely to meet. The first impression of the cottage was how perfect and beautiful and clean and warm it was. Thick walls and insulated well, warm colours inside. She...

Management response:

Thank you!! What a great review, we are most obliged. It was lucky for our son to have a playmate with the same interests - perfect match. It will be fantastic to see you again.

Last summer stay at Moonstone Cottage was our third stay in this beautiful place. It's a perfect place to stay in Glastonbury with small children as we did. Wonderful hosts, Katarina and David providing everything needed to have a great stay. The cottage is clean, well equipped, delightfully decorated and very cosy. The garden is a great place to stay...

Additional amenities & feature info
The cottage was sympathetically restored in 2010. The upstairs has white painted floor boards and rugs, the stairs and lounge are carpeted and the kitchen has an easy clean hard floor. The conservatory has a terracotta tiled floor. <BR><BR>I suffer from dust allergy, so you are assured of a high standard of cleanliness. Both the vacuum for guest use and our own has advanced Hepa filtration, and mattress protector covers are aired between each guest and frequently washed! Pillows are synthetic, duvets are 'like down' Microfibre. The double bed has a lush memory foam topper (received much praise). If you prefer 100% cotton sheets, just ask (we use both mixtures and pure cotton ones).<BR><BR>We have recently moved next door so are available at any hour if you n... more
