    Really comfortable beds and great showers. Fireplace meant we could sit outside in Winter and table tennis was great fun. Location is excellent, easy to walk into town or up the Tor!

    So glad you enjoyed the fire pit area and your stay, thanks for the great review Property Owner

  • "Certainly, here's your feedback for the cottage: "We had a fantastic stay at the cottage!"

    The location was perfect, with easy access to the town and all the main attractions in Glastonbury. The house itself was lovely and cozy, making our group of 12 people feel right at home. A special highlight was the delightful little treat we found in the fridge – a thoughtful touch that added to our overall enjoyment of the stay. Thank you for making our trip memorable!" Joanna x

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    Each bedroom having an en-suite was a really bonus and having a table with enough chairs for everyone was a big plus. The garden is spacious and well kept and secure for the dog, and the drawer of doggy stuff in the laundry is a nice touch. Very nice property and an easy walk into Glastonbury.

    The garden was a nice size and completley enclosed which was perfect for the dog. The house was lovely and within easy walking distance to everything. We had a wonderful time and plan on booking again. Will be letting firends know about this place as a wonderful homely place to go for a break.

    We loved everything about the house, it was clean and comfortable, and the tree of life was amazing, and so near all amenities, everyone loved it, we had a maintenance problem on Sunday and it was dealt with in an hour and Trevor came back next morning to finish the job with no disruption to us, thank you for a wonderful holiday, would love to go again,

  • "Tree of Life House is practically perfect in every way."

    Close to the town centre with comfortable furnishings, a beautiful, tranquil walled garden, and 5 ensuite rooms, it suited our party very well. We will definitely return and certainly recommend to friends and anyone else who would like to stay in Glastonbury. The housekeeper was also very helpful. Points to note - we couldn't get the microwave to work, the towel rail in the attic room would not turn off, and more than 3 pint glasses were needed by our party which included 5 men! None of these things spoilt our stay though.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and the house and hope you do return again :) Thank you for your feedback, the towel rail should only come on for a couple of hours morning and evening to dry towels but I’ll get it turned off for the summer! Property Owner

  • "I loved coming back to the Tree of Life house, as I was there first 6 months before."

    I love the house, the beautiful garden, the living room, all the facilities. We cought some colder days this time and it took about 1-2 days to really feel the house warming. Two set of keys would be helpful for more visitors but we managed well also with the key safe. Overall, I loved it there and I'll definitely come back again!

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments and return visit, I do hope you return again soon! Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyable stay, catered well for 9 people including ample parking."

    Good location with easy access to the high street and long walks into the countryside. From a maintenance perspective a couple of the bathroom taps "drip" over the surrounding surface when turned off and this is causing damage to the surrounding surface. The door from the conservatory into the garden has to be lifted slightly to close it. Both will be more costly to repair if left.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay at the house!. The conservatory door has dropped a little recently I noticed just before your visit. It is on the urgent Maintenace list thank you for highlighting. The taps are an unfortunate choice I inherited from former owners, something that will need to be replaced for sure when a long enough alternative can be found that is suitable for the position of the tap to sink. Whoever put them in went for style over substance … ! Property Owner

    Quiteset the tone for our return . We have stayed at quite a few Sykes Cottages over the years and we were quite surprised to receive negative feedback from the owner. When we arrived we discovered that a wooden chair was broken and the dishwasher tablet dispenser was also broken . We are told that a new dishwasher door is required and suitable recompense will be needed for the wooden chair . We were also verbally slapped on the wrist for not disposing of our rubbish in the correct manner although we believed that we had done so according to the owners manual. We will not be returning.

    Thank you for your feedback, the property has a housekeeping bond in place like most holiday homes to take care of any damage etc found after a stay. The signs have now been removed, having been left in place from the previous ownership. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We stayed here for a week as a whole family."

    The new managers have taken over since we booked. We had problems with hot water but the maintenance team came straight out and got us up and running. The building is in need of some TLC and this has been recognised. The location is great for visiting Glastonbury town with lots of bars and restaurants. The Heating seemed to have a mind of its own. My mom gets very cold due to being poorly and it seemed like a constant battle to get heat. There were plenty of blow air heaters though to assist. I would recommend this holiday.

    Thanks for your feedback and recommendation, I'm so glad the extra heaters helped your mother, the hot water and central heating issues been repaired now and a maintenance programme was put into place to take care of some upkeep outstanding from the last ownership. Property Owner

  • "House was great."

    Fantastic facilities so everyone in our group had their own bathroom. Extremely well equipped, very clean and in great location for Glastonbury town centre and the Tor. Couple of things that could have made it even better-radiators in two of the bedrooms were off when we arrived so took a while to warm up on first night but extra electric heaters were appreciated. Bathroom sink tap design was poor as most ended up dripping. Sink in room 1 was very small considering size of room and water pressure-so regularly got soaked

  • "It was a lovely property with a great garden and lots of parking."

    One small discomfort was one person was in a put up camp bed not a proper bed but as it was only a couple of days this was fine.

  • "Really lovely house."

    Would highly recommend to anyone who is likely for a property in the area. Great location for Glastonbury town.

  • "We spent a great weekend at this cottage with extended family."

    The house was well equipped with lovely bedrooms, all en-suite, and the kitchen and dining areas allowed us to have some nice family meals. The garden was lovely and perfect for Easter egg hunts. The kids also enjoyed the games room. The location in central Glastonbury was also good. The only minor niggles were the bathroom taps which were fancy-looking but impractical, and also there was a problem with the hot water running out in the top bedroom. But we had a wonderful stay and I would be happy to recommend it.

  • "Wonderful property that was perfect for my family as teens loved having their own room and en-suite."

    Kitchen and living area great for dog owners as easy to keep clean and shut off upstairs and amazing garden that the dog loved. Fully equipped kitchen was a delight, perfect for any catering I wished to do. We thoroughly enjoyed the property and great location being so close to town and surrounding area.

A former B&B, this spectacular abode has been renovated to a high standard, sitting with the peak of the infamous Glastonbury Tor as a backdrop, making an excellent location for both families and friends alike. The house enjoys ample off-road parking, where you can unload your belongings with ease before making your way inside the grand entrance hallway of your new home-from-home. Make use of the handy utility to freshen up your holiday attire before making your way through to the open-plan living/dining room where you can unwind with a moment of peace in front of the television as the designated chef prepares a hearty meal for the group in the nearby kitchen. Uncork a bottle of wine and gather with your loved ones to tuck in to a delectable dish, or if you'd prefer, retreat to the conservatory to dine in a more intimate setting with your significant other. Take advantage of the large lawned garden and head outdoors to soak in the last of the evening sunshine with your favourite tipple as the little ones keep themselves entertained with a spot of table tennis in the games room. As the day draws to a close, head indoors where you'll find the first of five bedrooms comprising of a king-size with TV and access to its own en-suite bathroom, ideal for guests with limited mobility. Climbing the stairs to the first-floor, find a further king-size bedroom complete with an en-suite with roll-top bath, a further double and twin room, each benefiting from their own TV and en-suite to avoid any morning queues, whilst small families may prefer the family room with double and two guest beds, TV and en-suite, positioned on the second-floor. A short walk from your doorstep will bring you into the centre of Glastonbury where you'll find all of your local amenities, including a bustling high-street with eclectic, artisan independent shops, markets and frequent special events and a delicious selection of eateries, ranging from traditional pubs, quaint cafes and foreign cuisines. Take a step back in time with a visit to the nearby Somerset Rural Life Museum & cafe or explore the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, or if that's not your thing, retreat with a wander through the ancient grounds of Chalice Well, visit the White Springs and climb to the summit of the Glastonbury Tor, where views stretch as far as Wales on a clear day and atmospheric mists can often be seen at dawn all around. If you time it right, why not head over to the world-renowned Glastonbury Festival to catch a spot of live music? Lace up your walking boots and journey north to lose yourself amongst the limestone peaks of the Mendip Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or for a coastal adventure, the popular seaside town of Weston-super-Mare isn't too far, where glorious golden sands, a grand pier, a handful of fascinating museums and an 18-hole golf course offer something to suit everyone. Make memories that will last a lifetime with your loved ones, or host your perfect intimate retreat, with a stay at Tree of Life House, 27 Bere Lane.

Today, the attractive town, well known for its music festival, is a centre for religious tourism and pilgrimage, offering a wealth of fascinating shops and businesses supporting these ideals. Located on the Somerset Levels, views across the town are dominated by the world famous Glastonbury Tor, with its enigmatic tower, now managed by the National Trust. Within the town, the ruined abbey offers a fascinating experience, brimming with ancient atmosphere, peace and tranquillity. The Somerset Levels provide acres of unspoilt wetlands, a haven for bird life. Alternatively, explore Wells, England’s smallest city, Wookey Hole, or scenic Cheddar Gorge.
