West Pennard, Glastonbury, Somerset, England
Set in the beautiful Somerset countryside with views of Glastonbury Tor, The Summerhouse is the perfect rural getaway.

Staying at The Summerhouse guests can enjoy lots of outside space - coffee under the willow and sunsets and even, out of season, misty autumnal mornings from the comfort of the living space with the joy of underfloor heating!

With countryside walks and cycle routes on your doorstep, the Summerhouse is perfectly placed for visitors to Somerset looking to explore the local area. Located close to Glastonbury and the historical Cathedral city of Wells, there are many and varied attractions to visit from traditional cider making to majestic heritage sites.

Living close to The Summerhouse, I am on hand to help, at the same time fully appreciating guests wish for privacy and chance to escape the busy-ness of life. I hope that guests will find everything they need in the property. It is well equipped and supplied with all the essentials. There are always a few extras to welcome them - as well as plenty of up to date local tourist information guides and leaflets.

About the neighbourhood
There is a wealth of sites to see around The Summerhouse. Cathedral cities of Wells, Bath and Bristol. The stunning gorges of Cheddar and Ebbor and Burrington Combe. The historic Somerset Levels teaming with wildlife and noted for the autumn/winter starling murmurations. There are also a number of renowned National Trust properties nearby, including the wonderful landscaped garden of Stourhead and many picturesque villages like Wedmore, Mells and Nunney. It is an area known for its art and crafts, highlighted during the autumn Somerset Art Weeks and known too for its cider and cheese!
Getting around
A car is recommended. There is a local bus service to Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet - but it is infrequent - maybe not an issue if you are happy (as some guests have been) to take time travelling and by circuitous routes. Taxis are available but of course not cheap. The nearest train station is Castle Cary, a 20 minute drive.
Car advised

The Summerhouse is on the outskirts of the Somerset village of West Pennard just three miles east of Glastonbury. A car is recommended, though as a handful of guests can testify, not completely essential with a bus service close by and Castle Cary train station 20 minutes away.
