When you arrive at Godney Arts House and step into the wide hallway leading you into a feast of art, unique interior design and retro furniture. Then into a country kitchen, complete with an inglenook fireplace and flagstone floor with everything you need to cook whilst you’re away. From the kitchen, walk under the archway into the sunny south facing living room and dining room, with copper dining table and velvet sofas arranged around a log burner, and marble fireplace; surely a perfect spot for keeping warm on winter nights. Wide stairs lead up to the first floor bedroom 1, with a south facing window to let in plenty of light, plus the option of either a super king size bed or twin beds, depending on your party.

A king size bed, freestanding bath, ensuite loo and living area with chairs and a table, make this room a real delight. Climb the stairs to the third floor, to a large attic bedroom with ensuite shower room and loo, king size bed, and two single beds, should you need them and living area. Outside, is a south facing cottage garden with lawn, a wood shed and beautiful, mature magnolia and apple trees. In the area, you'll find a great local pub, serving up delicious food, and only a two minute walk away. There is also a traditional cider farm only 3 miles away, and a wetland nature reserve that features a fantastic spot to spy a starling murmuration. A 10 minute drive away is Glastonbury known for the world famous music festival and Wells with its stunning cathedral. More
