My hosts, Lisehana and Cornelia, were among the most friendly and hospitable that I have met. The daily breakfast was heavenly, as every item was home-made using... More

The garden was sheltered, fragrant and peaceful. The lounge was a... More

Spent a wonderful few days here in August visiting Glastonbury and the Tor. A very special place for the traveler who appreciates an atmosphere of care and loving kindness. The most delicious breakfast! and conversation, information and attention to detail as well. Looking forward to a return visit someday to refresh and renew.
