Glastonbury and holiday cottages in England

West of London and south of Bristol and Cardiff is the picturesque town of Glastonbury. Brilliant cathedrals with many quaint holiday cottages in England for rent and old world buildings make up this charming English residence with modern highlights. The Glastonbury Tor and the mystical Glastonbury Abbey only add to the vibrant charm this town easily exudes.

Glastonbury Festival

This otherwise quiet and unassuming town suddenly explodes toward the end of June with a festival of gargantuan proportions…the famed Glastonbury Festival. This otherwise provincial town explodes with throngs of people and Glastonbury absolutely rocks out at one of the best concerts in the world!

The Glastonbury Festival is the highlight of the British summer parties. Gates officially open Friday morning and don’t close until Monday at 5pm. And for those days the party rages on without sleep or interruption, come rain or shine. Tents are constructed; campervans claim their stake and on goes the music.

Past acts at the Glastonbury Festival include the likes of David Bowie, Van Morrison, Oasis, Faithless, Paul Weller and Radiohead and the future promises to deliver only the best! Be advised, tickets sell out by February, so be sure to book holiday cottages in England in advance.
