The newest property in the Glorious Glastonbury Holiday Homes family, Heart of Avalon is the perfect holiday rental for families or friends to come together to make wonderful holiday memories.
A modern property situated on a private and secluded cul-de-sac, this large and spacious property has been tastefully decorated and furnished to provide a warm and inviting homely space, (yet still retain a sense of luxury and opulence.)
This really is the type of self-catering holiday home that you rarely come across and will be so much more than just a base from which to holiday.
Having previously been a loving family home, the condition of Heart of Avalon is an immaculate and well-maintained detached house. Because we have only just purchased the property as a reluctant replacement to our beloved Avalon Cottage, we have tastefully redecorated the entirety of the house to make it feel warm, inviting and homely.
Our goal was to make the house feel like a home-from-home holiday rental property, yet still add a little touch of luxury, and we think you’ll agree from the following photos that we’ve achieved that.
Downstairs, the property is bright and airy, with a large hallway – perfect for shedding boots and coats after a long day of exploring – leading to a well-appointed kitchen and sunny, south-west facing living area.
With smart wooden flooring throughout, there is a feel of continuity throughout the downstairs that ensures the whole of your party will be able to come together and enjoy quality time, whether that be whilst eating a meal, playing a board game or watching the TV.
The living room in Heart of Avalon is a chic yet comforting space, ideal for relaxing in as a family or with friends at the end of a long day sightseeing.
The traditional flooring is both warm yet incredibly easy to keep clean; perfect if you’ve just come in from exploring the beautiful surrounding English countryside.
Our large sofas are perfect for sinking into and snuggling up on, especially after an extended and tiring day. Our extra wide cushions ensure there’s room to put your feet up and get comfy, whilst the additional chairs and furniture make sure everyone in your party gets a comfortable place to relax.
The flame effect gas fire, located in the gorgeous traditional style fire place at the centre of the room, will ensure everyone is warm and toasty during the colder winter months, whilst our cheery, inviting soft furnishings and strategically placed, warming table lamps will create a safe and secure haven for you and your family to relax in.
Connected to the living room, the walk-through dining room opens to the side of the lounge area, allowing all the benefits of open plan living.
Now the family can eat and relax in the same place or spend time together whilst still partaking in different events. Perhaps some can be watching television, whilst others are playing a board game? However your party likes to relax in the evenings or on rainy days, this living/dining setup will permit any configuration.
The oak dining table can seat 6 – 8 people comfortably, so there’s plenty of room for everyone to sit around the table at breakfast time or for a delicious home cooked meal (or takeaway, if you’re not planning on cooking!) in the evening.
Furthermore, during the long summer days you can bring the outside inside, thanks to the patio doors that open from the dining room onto the mature, part-walled corner plot garden. Whether eating outside on the patio or half-in and half-out to make the most of the British summer, this dining area is perfect to ensure quality time during your self-catering Glastonbury holiday.
The kitchen is fitted with traditional and elegant shaker style units in cream, creating a fresh and modern kitchen that nevertheless feels timeless and classic. All the expected fixtures and fittings are there, including a built-in double oven, gas hob and dishwasher. A (large free standing) fridge freezer ensures there is plenty of room to store and cook food for even the largest party.
In the compact but functional utility room adjacent to the kitchen, you will find a washing machine, tumble dryer and plenty more storage space.
Kitted out with all the mod cons and appliances you could ever wish for, this well-appointed kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, crockery and anything else you could ever need to feed your hungry party. Whether you choose to cook yourself or eat a takeaway from one of the many local food outlets, you’ll have everything you need, right at your fingertips.
The upstairs of this large, spacious four bedroom self-catering holiday let is accessed via the stairs, which ascend from the central hallway, opposite the front door. The staircase is bright and airy and carpeted for extra comfort, safety and warmth.
All four bedrooms and the family bathroom are accessed via the centrally located landing area, which is again bright and airy and provides plenty of space, a great benefit when there’s several of you trying to get your suitcases up the stairs!
Unfortunately, the fact that all the bedrooms in this property are located on the first floor and can only be accessed via the stairs, with no lift access, does make the property unsuitable for less able-bodied guests or those in a wheelchair. However, Glorious Glastonbury Holiday Homes are dedicated to being an accessible self-catering holiday company, hence, if you do have mobility issues but would still like to stay with us, why not speak to us about our accessible ground floor property, Ellen’s Garden?
Heart of Avalon comprises four excellent sized bedrooms, all of which feature our famously comfy beds made up with white bed linen. One of our core beliefs at Glorious Glastonbury Holiday Homes is that our guests should sleep comfortably in our beds, and we take the quality of our beds extremely seriously. Simply ask anyone who has ever stayed with us before and they will tell you they slept just as well as they would at home, if not better!
Three of the generously proportioned bedrooms feature large, comfortable double beds and built-in wardrobe space, making them the ideal base from which to experience your self-catering holiday in Glastonbury. Sink into our luxurious beds at the end of a long day of shopping, sightseeing or exploring the countryside, and have plenty of room in which to store all your clothing and gear to boot.
Don’t forget, on an English holiday, you’ll need to pack for every kind of weather or social event, so extra closet space is a must!
What’s more, thanks to the extra fourth bedroom containing a stylish single bed, Heart of Avalon can sleep up to 6 people in total comfort
Now, thanks to Heart of Avalon, your family or group of friends can enjoy a really comfortable holiday home at a far more realistic price than anywhere else in Glastonbury of this quality.
With both a good sized en suite attached to the master bedroom and a large family bathroom to boot, Heart of Avalon has sufficient bathroom facilities to keep your entire party happy throughout your stay with us.
The en suite features a sink above a bathroom cabinet, a toilet and a shower cubicle, all in a tasteful bathroom suite set. What’s more, unlike many modern en suites, this one provides plenty of room to get dressed and move about, without having to hop on one leg or squeeze against the loo whilst getting dressed or drying yourself off.
Opening straight off the master bedroom, the only problem with the en suite will be the arguments over who gets to sleep in the master bedroom!
Next to the other bedrooms, and opening off the main first floor landing, is the family bathroom. This generously proportioned room features a washbasin and a loo, plus a separate bath and shower cubicle; perfect if you’re trying to get multiple children ready for bed at one go!
With a plain white matching suite, this bathroom is both timeless and practical, plus comes with plenty of additional storage space in the form of an airing cupboard and bathroom cabinets; ideal for drying off any wet clothes at the end of a rainy British day!
