The Studio is well-equipped and comfortable, with helpful storage cupboards. It is ideally placed for walks and visits to Glastonbury, Street and Wells. It was lovely to look out on the orchard and to hear birdsong. We would recommend this as a highly relaxing place to stay.

I loved staying in this property. An ideal location to visit the surrounding attractions, but I didn't want to go out too much as I so enjoyed the view from the french windows to the orchard at the back. At the time I was there, the rooks were building their nests.

The studio enabled a lovely, relaxing time away. We found circular walks directly from the studio in different directions from the village. It is closer to the owners house than we had expected (as it's alongside their garden and driveway) but they were very friendly and we felt they respected our privacy.

The studio, adjacent to the owners garden and with views across the orchard, was both comfortable and well equipped. The location is good and we found plenty to do in the area. Wells was particularly worth the visit.
