Twin room situated in a quiet cul de sac, at the foot of Chalice Hill, Shamanka is a beautiful, tranquil space, only 5 minutes walk from the High Street and all amenities. The room is located at the back of the house and is particularly quiet with views over the garden and orchards. We have off street parking, and we are in a very quiet residential neighbourhood. Although the High Street is near by, we are also close to open fields, and within easy walking distance of Chalice Well and the Tor
Tranquility, warmth and peacefulness have all been words used to describe the ambience of Shamanka. The house is semi detached with a large garden both front and rear. Where the house now stands, an old farm, dating back to Anglo Saxon times, stood until 1927. The floor of the old still room is still in evidence, and the gardens are littered with pieces of Abbey stone, which had been used in the construction of the old farm buildings. The house is TV free, all products used are environmentally friendly and cruelty free. Wi-fi access is available and tea and coffee making facilities are available in all rooms.

I have lived in Glastonbury for over twenty years and know both the town and the surrounding area intimately. I am more than happy to provide information and suggestions that will enhance time spent within this very beautiful and sacred place
Otros aspectos destacables
Charlie the cat also lives here............. so for those with severe allergies this may not be appropriate.
One of the twin beds is slightly shorter than average! Its an antique dutch cabin bed, and from a time when people obviously were not so large....... for those who require more sleeping space, it may be not be comfortable enough.
Bookings for one night are only taken for two people sharing, or the price of. Two nights minimum booking is required for single occupancy.
The house is non smoking and meat free. The focus on the house is peace and tranquility, and there is an expectation that guests will honour that. Check in time is between 5.00 & 7.00 Other times can be arranged on request, but please be aware that if special arrangements have not been made, it is unlikely you will get access to the room, or any answer at the house, due to other life/work commitments.

My intention with Shamanka is to provide a warm safe space, where people can relax and find tranquility. Glastonbury has traditionally been a place of healing and at times can be a little intense. Having a safe space to retire to can be incredibly helpful. I have been involved in alternative spirituality for over thirty years, a vegetarian for 40 years and have also been involved in environmental issues for equally as long. Shamanka has been, and at times still is, a family home, a place of healing, and place of teaching........ it is also a place where both family and friends have had many celebrations and has always provided a warm welcome to those who enter. Eleanor Roosevelt once said 'The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams'. At Shamanka I offer the space for you to dream.........
