  • "A lovely property, really well located for a stroll up the Tor or down into the town."

    Lovely owners live very close by if needed, although we had no need to speak to them at all after the initial check in.

  • "A lovely property, and we enjoyed our stay overall."

    95% positive, with a few areas we were a little disappointed with. We would rate the comfort 3/5 as opposed to the 2/4 scale used. This is because the beds were generally uncomfortable. The single bedroom suffered from a sloping bed, which we levelled up. The living area would benefit from a large traditional sofa. The current sofas weren’t very generous. The bed stripping routine seemed unnecessary now COVID is less of a consideration. Finally, the waste disposal explanation in the house instruction booklet were far to long (and a bit intimidating, coming from a region where the recycling regime is leas exacting) 5 pages. These were things that slightly impacted our enjoyment. We loved the property, and hope the criticism is received in the spirit intended. Thanks.

  • "Thank you for a fabulous stay at Lantern Cottage."

    It was a wonderful warm welcome and the property lived up to expectations. It was clean, comfortable and really well equipped. Perfectly located for a stroll into town and located near to so many other local attractions.

  • "The property is in a great location just a short walk down the hill to Glastonbury high street."

    The property is large and the beds comfortable. There is however a damp and mould issue in the bathrooms and this was disturbing to see the extent of this in the showers. Urgent work needs to be done to resolve this. The general cleanliness is ok but the house, particularly upstairs is in need of a good clean to remove dust and cobwebs. Clothes put in cupboards came out dusty. There is a lack of mirrors I'm the property. Only one if the five bedrooms had a very small mirror. This made drying hair etc a challenge. Mirrors in every bedroom and a full length mirror somewhere are required. There was also a lack of storage space in two bedrooms.

  • "This was potentially a lovely house in a good location However the property is very tired."

    The level of cleanliness was average several areas of cobwebs, draws in one bedroom too dirty to use. Found cards and tissues behind one single bed. Beds had clearly never been moved for hoovering. Quality of bedding and towels was average. Some sheets were so thin and the quilts did not really fit the covers which came from Amazon basics which are horrible some of the mattresses are near the end of their lives Plenty of pots pans crockery and cutlery but cutlery was particularly cheap. This said overall it is a good holiday home which with a bit of TLC could be excellent. On a positive note, we had a tap break in the main bathroom and a plumber attended and resolved within an hour

  • "The house was in a good location for the town and walks up to the Tor."

    It was very well equipped and clean – and it was lovely to have an aga. There were a couple of very minor things which need a bit of TLC like the en suite bathroom, but other than that it was wonderful and I would definitely recommend.

  • "My friends and I stayed at Lantern Cottage, August bank holiday weekend."

    Upon arriving at the Cottage the exterior was well looked after and presented beautifully. The interior was well decorated and very clean, the beds were very comfy and had a lot of praises. The lounge was decorated very nicely and the sofas looked great in there but they were not the comfiest to relax on. As the weekend went on we noticed the cottage didn't provide any condiments, this wasn't a massive problem however because we were only there for a weekend we didn't particularly want to purchase all the condiments needed for dinners. In one of the rooms, the door handle kept falling off and my friend would get stuck in the room. Other than these few suggestions we all had a lovely time visiting the picturesque town of Glastonbury.
