Certificate of Excellence
Melrose House BB is a georgian house situated at the foot of Glastonbury Tor (a hop over the fence and you are at Chalice Well Spring and Glastonbury Tor). A four star ETB rated property with all ensuite rooms, all of which have fantastic garden views. Its gardens surround the property and lend it to having a tranquil feel. Melrose House is suitable for groups visiting Glastonbury, individual bookings and we delight in welcoming back repeat guests. We are a ten minute walk from Glastonbury High Street, a five minute drive to Street and within ten minutes drive to the city of Wells. Millfield Prep School is within walking distance and Millfield Senior School is in Street (five minutes drive). We are lucky to have private parking to the sides of the main house on our driveway.
