“Exceptionally clean beautiful cottage in a central location in Glastonbury”
Reviewed 27 October 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Hard to find fault with this beautiful, exceptionally clean cottage which came with the added bonus of a parking space. Great location, easy walk into the town and to the Tor. Katrina the owner made us feel very welcome offering advice on places of interest to visit and leaving some lovely chocolates in the cottage for us. There is a beautiful garden at the back of the property with a raised terrace area and a great view across the abbey gardens which are also worth a visit. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and hope to return soon.

“Magical Moonstone”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We are regulars at Moonstone and can't recommend highly enough. Wonderful, cosy cottage in a great location and such warm hosts in Katrina and family. Delightful garden backs on to the abbey and cottage lacks nothing in home comforts.

“The perfect cottage in a lovely town”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

It was the first time our little family travelled to Glastonbury, although our daughter already went for a short stay with her school. I choose Moonstone Cottage on Internet because of the photos and the perfect location. It was even better that what we expected. I didn't think we should find so nice owner: Katarina and David are really adorable, they have many real kind attentions for their guests! When arriving to the cottage, Katarina welcomed us warmly, made us a short but complete visit of the place and gave us a lot of informations about what to see. There are a lot to do and see in Glastonbury and also around: Wells, Bath, Cheddar gorge and caves... too much for just a week I'm afraid! But we've visited almost everything we wanted. We've enjoyed Glastonbury for everything: Chalice well, Glastonbury Tor, the Abbey and garden, the town's market, the shops... Then we also enjoyed a lot Wells and Cheddar. And most of all, we were happy to come back to the cottage every day after long walks or visits. The cottage is lovely decorated, very confortable and fully equiped with everything you need and even more. The beds are very confortable too. The garden is a treasure, overlooking Glastonbury Abbey's gardens. We enjoyed a few evening beers in that gem. Leaving the cottage and its owners was a heartbreak at the end of the week and we really hope to come back there again soon. Thank you so much Katarina for this beautiful place and our wonderful week: it's all thanks to your work in there!
I recommend Moonstone cottage to everyone who look for authentic places.

“A beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Moonstone Cottages is an absolute gem there are views of The Tor from the front of the cottage and the Abbey Gardens at the rear - What more could anyone want?Katarina is a lovely lady - always happy to help in anyway she can and the welcome bottle of wine and chocolates a real treat. The cottage is situated withing 10 minutes of the town centre and Abbey and approx 15 minutes in the opposite direction to the base of The Tor.
This is a cottage not to be missed!!!
This is our second visit and we have already booked for 2015

Thank you so much for this review! It was great to see you again, and lovely you will return next year.

NB the Tor and Chalice Well are actually only 5 minutes walk away, and the High Street is about 10 mins walk in the opposite direction. Moonstone sits 'in between' the High Street, Abbey and Tor... :)
