“Miss”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

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.

“A long weekend to enjoy a birthday and the Glastonbury Carnival”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This weekend away at The Cider House was to celebrate my fiancee's birthday and catch up with one of my brothers and his girlfriend. We usually stay in Glastonbury but due to us booking late a lot of the hotels and B+B's were fully booked due to the Glastonbury Carnival taking place so we decided to try out The Cider House. This was a wonderful long weekend stay, extremely quiet and relaxing. We were warmly welcomed by the owner Richard plus his dog Tori - a wonderfully loving dog:) The house was full of character, clean and was warm for our arrival. The double beds were extremely comfortable and large and none of us had any complaints with being warm when the wind blew and the temperature dropped in the evening/night. The drive into town takes a mere 5 minutes and there is a good description of how to walk to the Tor from the house. We all got to say hello to the rescued donkey, Arthur, and shetland pony, Laddie, who were both vocal and happy to nibble down carrots that were presented to them both. We all came away agreeing that we would definitively consider staying here again.

Liked best: The decor and use of the cider press as a feature as well as Tori, Arthur and Laddie.
Liked least: Map location on this website is wrong, the map pin suggests the house is on the town outskirts.

“Just a fabulous relaxing place to stay”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Cider Hous is wonderful and Richard is a very warm and welcoming host. There is so much history here. The location is great, quiet and peaceful but easy access to Bath, Bristol, Glastonbury, wells and lots of attractions.

“Amazing rustic cottage in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a wonderful last minute stay in this stunning cottage with our baby. It has tonnes of character and is super cosy, especially with the wood burner going in the evenings. The cider press in the living room is a really lovely touch, and the whole place has been restored beautifully. Richard was so friendly and accommodating, and Tori the dog was always pleased to see us! Richard also provided a high chair and travel cot for bubs, as well as a well-received welcome bottle of wine for us.

The surrounding area is great for exploring, and the Tor is well worth a climb. The cottage is a good base for day trips to Bath, Weston-Super-Mare, Wells and Cheddar.

All-in-all, we had a fantastic time at The Cider House. Really can't recommend this place enough, and we look forward to coming back one day!

“Stunning cottage blessed with history and charm”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We recently stayed for at this delightful cottage for 9 nights and wished we didn't have to leave!

From the first moment to the last, our stay was perfect in every way. With the welcome pack of flowers, milk, bread, homemade honey and even a bottle of wine through to the last day when leaving, everything was perfect!

The owner, Richard, who restored this property, which was originally built during the reign of King Edward III in the 14th century, was the perfect host in every way. Making sure that we felt right at home throughout our stay, allowing us to feed and pet Arthur the donkey, Laddie the pony and a wonderfully playful Tori-dog even through to allowing our daughter to clean out one of his bee hives fully suited and to taste the fresh honey under his full supervision and care!

The property has an unrivalled view of the Glastonbury Tor and can be walked to and from through the fields in two hours, For us with children, this was the ideal base just outside Glastonbury with easy access to Glastonbury Abbey, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and many, many more attractions including a 10 minute walk to the local pub for us big kids!

In conclusion, this was a wonderful place to be and one you have to experience to believe.

On a personal note, I would like to thank Richard for his gracious hospitality and for the time he spent with our daughter telling her stories and helping her to overcome her anxiety of animals. She arrived scared of most animals and left with a bond with Arthur and Tori that shed a tear or two on the way home.

We will be back...........
