WHY GLASTONBURY IS A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE
Glastonbury is synonymous with ancient history and myth. It’s home to a host of historical sites, including the spectacular Glastonbury Tor - it’s the alleged resting place of King Arthur, and has been a site of pilgrimage for thousands of years. A home in Glastonbury puts you in the heart of that history and culture, with attractions like Glastonbury Abbey and Chalice Well. Stonehenge is also close by.
Although Glastonbury is steeped in history, it isn’t a town stuck in the past. Glastonbury offers all the amenities you’d look for in a modern town, with a vibrant Market Place centre full of characterful shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars and pubs. There’s a weekly Glastonbury Country Market plus a large farmers’ market held once a month.
Whilst most famous for its yearly Glastonbury Festival (held in the countryside outside of the town), Glastonbury offers cultural attractions year-round. These include Glastonbury Carnival, Tor Fair, Samhain and Beltane celebrations, and the unique Glastonbury Faery Ball and Fairy Fayre. It’s a town where something’s always happening.
Glastonbury is a wonderful location for families with children, with plenty of activities and attractions for kids. When it comes to schools, all three of Glastonbury’s primary schools are rated as “Outstanding” by Ofsted, whilst Dovecote School is also rated as “Outstanding” and offers education and therapy for special students aged five to 18. St Dunstan's School is a secondary rated “Good” by Ofsted, whilst nearby Crispin School Academy is also rated “Good”.
Of course, a home in the heart of the Somerset countryside offers fantastic access to nature. Glastonbury itself is full of green spaces, whilst Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills, and Cranborne Chase Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are short journeys away, as is the impressive Somerset coast.
