Description

Woodlands is a Grade II listed property situated in the ever popular Bove Town region of Glastonbury within an easy five-minute walk of the high street. The property is believed to date back to the 18th century with Victorian additions. The Coach House and gardens make the most of its commanding position on the elevated eastern side of Glastonbury.

The south facing private garden and orchard makes the most of the stunning views towards Glastonbury Tor.
