Upper Crannel Farm Barn

Glastonbury, Somerset

Wow! The Barn is a fabulous surprise... huge rooms, flowers, masses of art. The stunning view of Glastonbury Tor is different every day


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


Your 360-degree views, across sheep and the lush flat Levels, are to Glastonbury in one direction, Wells in another. Birds wing across the wide, silent sky. Phoebe has created a magical place; her two contemporary architect-designed barns are close to each other, but you’re nicely private in yours.  Up you climb to the first floor, into a huge sitting room with a vast medieval painted fireplace facing a long sofa-settle. The kitchen/dining room is smart, handsome and a great space for cooking while you chat. In fact, each room is a work of art, with stacks of it on the walls. The bedrooms are generous: dark bed-covers and matching curtains, fine furniture and more interesting pictures. You have those views on three sides, and to the other you look over a farmyard. Massively comfortable, imaginative and unusual – this house is a treat. Phoebe has planted thousands of trees and will use her every penny to plant more, and to bring back more wildlife. She has a rare touch – and is very good company. Walk across fields to climb Glastonbury Tor; Wells, with its craft shops, good restaurants and cathedral is a mere five miles.

What an absolute pleasure it is to stay at Upper Crannel Farm Barn. The location is indescribably beautiful, I have no words to capture the feeling of waking each morning to the ever-changing view of Glastonbury Tor from the deliciously warm comfort of my bed. The bed, by the way, was of the highest quality and beautifully decorated. as is every inch of this amazing place. The kitchen must be the envy of any cook, that is if you can peel your eyes from the entrancing vistas that surround you. Phoebe is the most delightful and inspirational of women and has an unerring sense of style & comfort.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Phoebe Judah

  • Local attractions including Glastonbury Tor and the Abbey, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge and Caves.
  • The beautiful Cathedral City of Wells is 10 minutes away. The Cathedral choir is considered the best in the World and there are markets on Wednesday and Saturday. Go further afield and visit Bristol or the Georgian city of Bath (both 50 minutes).
  • Superb walking in the Mendip Hills with 360 degree views – 10 mins away.
  • Bath & West Showground is 15 minutes away, offering Antique Fairs, Royal Show, Garden Exhibitions and many more.
  • Somerset Levels offer wonderful wildlife (including the farm) with a rich variety of birds and there are large RSPB reserves nearby. Watch the parliaments of starlings or visit the 2000-year-old Lake Village site half a mile from the farm.
  • The Sheppey Inn in Godney is excellent and is within a 40 minute walk through the fields – alternatively 8 minutes by car. It has a high standard of cooking but it is possible to eat well on a limited budget if you choose carefully.
