About this listing

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.

The space

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.

Guest access

We have one double room which is light and airy with views over the town and out to the Somerset Levels in the distance, and also over Dod Lane. We also have a twin room with views over the rear garden. There is a shared bathroom which is kept spotlessly clean, along with a separate WC, and a downstairs cloakroom. Breakfast is served in the main sitting room, which on cold mornings has an open fire. Guests also have access to a large and private rear garden, where it is possible to sit in the shade of a huge and magnificent, ancient apple tree. (Please see separate listing for the twin room)

Interaction with guests

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

The neighbourhood

Dod Lane is one of the most sought after residential areas in Glastonbury. A number of ley lines are said to run along here, including one which runs to Stonehenge. Shekinashram is further along the lane, providing early morning meditation, yoga, healing, and on Friday evening, Bhajans. Just passed the Ashram are open fields, with seating, and beautiful views over the town and the Somerset Levels.

Getting around

We have off street parking on a spacious drive at the front of the house. The bus stop, with buses arriving from Bristol, is only a five minute walk away.

Other things to note

Charlie the cat also lives here............. so for those with severe allergies this may not be appropriate

Great stay! Sandra is a wonderful host. The B&B is located near High Street and near all commodities. Vegan breakfast was great and the whole space was clean and quiet. I will definitely be back :)

Sandra is a great host and I'd highly recommend her and her home. Very close to the High St it's a perfect location and you won't get lost in the tourist side of Glastonbury as both host and home are very grounded. The bed is so comfortable I could have slept for days. If I'm in Glastonbury again I'll be back.

This was a lovely peaceful house in an excellent location for the town and walks. Sandra was the perfect host communicating well and offering a wonderful breakfast. The room and facilities were very comfortable.

Firstly we had great communication and a lovely welcome from our host Sandra. All of our needs were catered for and we felt very spoilt. The room was very comfortable, spacious, light and airy, a joy to stay in. Our breakfast needs were catered for with plenty of choice. The location of the property is great, close to the town but in a lovely quiet road. We can't praise our stay and the host Sandra enough, making us feel like part of a big family coming back to stay for a catch up. Would recommend a stay there to anyone (Vegan/Vegetarian) and will choose Sandra as our host again. A Big Thank You again to Sandra for a lovely visit.

What a lovely experience. Sandra was a delight from start to finish. She couldn't do enough to make sure we were comfortable. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the bnb is situated within a 2-3 minute walk from the high street. We didn't have to use our car once during our stay. We will definitely be coming back

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.........
