1 bedroom accommodation in Somerton, near Glastonbury

Located in: Somerton, near Glastonbury »
Full of character and adorned with antique furniture, this is a wonderful retreat for a couple and exudes an air of bygone elegance.


Set on the outskirts of Somerton, the ancient capital of Wessex, The Book Room is a Grade II* listed, self-contained wing of the owner’s home, The Old Parsonage. It is believed to have been built on the site of an early Anglo Saxon church, and next to an old tithe barn that was originally attached to Muchelney Abbey, 6 miles away (which is now overseen by English Heritage). After dissolution of the abbey in 1538, the land passed to Edward Seymour, Earl of Hereford, and was eventually leased by Thomas Preene, a merchant of London. The parsonage house is believed to have been built in 1619 using blue lias stone, and The Book Room still has an original 17th-century hamstone fireplace, original mullion windows and wide, spiral stairs. Guests are welcome to view the original Carolean overmantel in the main house by arrangement, as well as the 17th-century panelling in the parlour. It is interesting to think that the civil war and the nearby battle of Sedgemoor are sure to have been discussed within these walls.
Guests can enjoy the walled garden, relax in the courtyard outside and, if in the mood, wander into the quaint town of Somerton with its shops, pubs and restaurants. There are many places of interest to visit within easy driving distance, including Glastonbury Tor, Clarks Village (retail outlet), Haynes International Motor Museum and the ever-popular Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. Also of interest are the cathedral city of Wells with its Bishops Palace, and many nearby historical houses including Montacute House, Forde Abbey and Gardens, and Stourhead, with its magnicient landscaped gardens. You may also like to venture further afield to the Roman and Georgian city of Bath. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
