Our whole family loved our stay. The cottage was gorgeous as were the surroundings. So much to see and do in and around with the cider house as a fantastic base. Clean and beautifully renovated and kept, couldn’t have asked for more from our accommodation. Great walk up to the tor from here too which we enjoyed the view of from the cottage. Richard the owner was helpful too. All in all would very much recommend!
Well, first things first. Richard is an absolutely awesome host and I am not just saying that because of his gorgeous apple cider from his own trees! We fell in love with his place and would have stayed there much longer if we had the time. He has worked so hard to make it just right. So relaxing, so peaceful! The barn cottage we stayed in is bright and comfortable, well equipped kitchen, comfortable couches with a lot of thoughtful touches including DVDs. Good beds! He also has the sweetest dog - Tory. The view of the Tor is gorgeous and it's right there! I'm guessing about 2 miles as the crow flies. We has a stunning walk one afternoon up to it through the fields and lanes. The deep, yet energizing peace of the place enters your body fields and we felt so refreshed after staying there. Highly recommend and would absolutely stay there again! Richard rocks!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were exceptionally comfortable and felt completely relaxed. This is a perfect getaway for those in need of peace and tranquility. Add in a most genial host (Richard) and it's a recipe for total r and r.
We will definitely return. Thank you.
ps We love Tori!
Had an amazing time . So easy to book the week which gives you a hint of how relaxing the stay will be. We loved every moment . Fantastic location, 10 mins from Glastonbury . Great day trip. Beautiful view of the TOR from the bedroom. Richard is an amazing host . The house is so cozy and comfortable . We felt at home from the moment we arrived . And can't forget Torrey (the dog) ... we extended an extra day , would even have stayed longer if possible . Very peaceful and grounding property.
We will def be back, can't wait .
We stayed here at The Cider House for seven nights. What a special place steeped in history, the cider press in the cottage was amazing. Wonderful views for miles around, and peace. The cottage was so comfortable and we slept like babies. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk to glastonbury tor with the maps provided. We loved being able to spend time with Tori the dog, Arthur the donkey and Laddie the Pony. Richard went out of his way to make us welcome. It made our little boys day to help Richard tend the beehives in child size beekeeper suit provided. After soaking up a the lovely atmosphere here our batteries have been well charged. We will definetely be back.
We recently spent 5 nights at the Cider House, Old Farm and had the most brilliant time.
The accommodation and location were beyond our expectations and our host Richard was very welcoming. As well as being extremely interesting to talk to about the area of Glastonbury and the history of his fabulous property, he is really very kind and generous. Our daughter loved getting involved in feeding the donkey and riding the pony, collecting the chickens eggs and learning about bees. The Cider house itself is a charming, comfortable cottage and is equipped with everything you could need. Admittedly the wifi was a bit limited for our teenagers but that suited us parents because we were there to get away from virtual reality and to explore this fascinating part of the real world! From Old Farm we were able to visit a number of places in the 5 days including Glastonbury itself, Bath and Bristol, Wells and Wookey Caves and even we ventured to Exeter one day. We loved our Easter break in Somerset and hope to be able to visit Old Farm again in the future.
