Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Superbly positioned, with stunning views to the cathedral and the Somerset country beyond, Glastonbury Tor in the distance,’ Frances and Tim Meeres Young’s 18th-century coach house is set in beautiful gardens and parkland. Bedrooms, each individually styled, one with a four-poster, are dressed to the nines. The owners are currently offering a two or three bedroomed self-catering unit comprising the Silk Room and Aeonium, or the Silk Room with Lady Hamilton and Aeonium, and the two bedroomed gatehouse cottage (3-night stays). The Studio Suite will still be available for bed and breakfast for a two-night stay. Little extra touches such as dressing gowns, slippers, together with a welcoming Brunch Pack are provided on arrival. A few novelties (at a small cost) include the use of a pizza oven outdoors with its ingredient pack, and a hot tub experience in the rondavel on certain days to enable guests to relax with a glass of wine or champagne from the fridge. Wandering through nature in the unique gardens that Stoberry is renowned for remains a great pleasure.
