Living Waters Retreat House and B&B
Living Waters Retreat House and B&B
Staying in a garden shed where 1 wall is a massive window so everyone can see you.
Not secure at all. 1 bathroom for all guests, that is when you remember the code to the house and that you have to move the handle the other way. I did not, hence could not go to the bathroom.

This new cabin over looks the garden as stated on our website. Its windows and patio doors are fully double glazed with five lever dead locks to the patio doors. The windows are also lockable if required by guests. A five lever dead lock is also fitted to the main wooden door into the cabin.
Roller blinds are fitted to the windows to give privacy from neighbouring houses where required. The patio doors that are not over looked by any neighbouring properties have full length net curtains over them for our guests privacy. The patio doors look out over the fishpond and flowerbeds towards a nine foot high boundary wall obscuring the view of any neighbours at ground level from looking into the cabin.
For the security of all our guests, we have a push button security system on the front door into the main house as do most bed and breakfasts throughout the U.K. The man that I bought the house from was left handed and so reversed somehow the lever on the lock to the norm for his own convenience. It has not proved a problem to any other guests having been informed of this fact upon check in.
There is absolutely no reason why you could not enter the property to go to the bathroom, for even if you did forget the front door security lock code, we have a front doorbell which would have opened the door for you by the B & B owner had you pushed it! For whatever reason known only to yourself, you didn't!
Don't stay in the garden room - disappointing and not worth it
The room was hut in garden, Very clean & brightly decorated.
First impressions good. However no proper curtain to keep out the light and no running water in room. Not even basin. Old fashioned outside w/c in garden nearby, but with no sink. Needed to go to front of house, enter code in door lock, go upstairs to wash hands after toilet. (When doing this early morning found cat poo in the bath.) Bed was basically an airbed. Breakfast was either veggie or vegan. So the veggie full English was soya bacon & soya sausage. (Should have gone for the beans on toast) The room was cheap (for Glastonbury) but still not worth the £50 we paid. (NB They do have other rooms in the house which may well be better quality & value)

It is very obvious that this guest did not read our website description of this new peaceful cabin overlooking the fishpond and beautiful garden that he booked. Since it was made available a month ago, to our surprise, it has become our most popular room to our guests, being away from the road and the noise of the town on occasions. Many people visiting Glastonbury do not have the money to pay highly priced bedroom fees for their accommodation (although we are one of the cheapest Bed and Breakfasts in town) and look for other forms of accommodation. This is one of them. It clearly states that there is a queen sized futon in the bedroom, and following a guests recommendation that had back problems, suggested that we raised it up a little with an air mattress. Always looking for ways to please our guests, we have taken this ladies suggestion on board and actioned it, with very
It is true that the Woodland Glen cabin has no running water to it. Neither do any of the other four bedrooms in the main house. The builder I have employed to renovate the outside toilet has not completed his work there yet and the water pipes are fitted, but the wash basin has not been fitted yet. It is only a few steps walk to the front door leading to the upstairs bathroom anyway. For the security of all our residents possessions, we never leave the front door open and the press button code lock system maintains that safety for all our guests.
We have a new 18 week old kitten living here at the Centre that it seems misbehaved on this occasion. A guest shut the kitchen door preventing him from being able to use his litter box when he found himself caught short.
Had this guest told me what had taken place, I would have immediately dealt with it, but he didn't inform me until later on in the morning. This guest also left a terrible mess for me to deal with in both toilets far worse than the cat could ever have caused, which was most unpleasant for the other guests staying at the time to witness. This man did tell me that he had a medical condition causing him problems, but that was no excuse for the way he left both toilets at the Centre.
Our website also states that we are a strict vegan Centre, and cater for vegetarians and other special diets by arrangement. I have never had a bad review about any of our cooked breakfasts, just the opposite in fact, and many meat eating guests have been pleasantly surprised how nice vegan food is and have gone vegan themselves following their stay here.
I believe £25.00 a person for a room with a full traditional English cooked breakfast is good value. The average price for the same without a breakfast at all is £48.00 in Glastonbury this year.
Despite this man's disappointment on this occasion, his wife told me that she loved the room and its location!
Not just a bed and breakfast!
I can honestly say that this b&b has the purest energy of any place I have ever been.
Sister Dominic is a vibrant and loving character, exceptionally hospitable and an absolute tonic for the weary traveller of life. Indeed, if you have lost your faith in humanity, stay here. Many people come to Glastonbury for many different things and Living Waters gave me a far greater perspective on the reasons for my visit than I expected.
This is the epicentre of the heart of Glastonbury. It's walking distance to the Abbey, Tor, Chalice Well and the Red Spring, and the High Street.
Pleasantly surprised as got more than I bargained for.
Tranquil, lovely hot bath, quiet and interesting.
Felt so at home here :-)
I found this B&B vey special, my room was lovely, bed really comfortable, breakfast was great, I loved all the art & pictures too
