Arimathean Cottage is situated at the upper end of Glastonbury High Street, this elegant double-fronted medieval period property exudes a unique blend of artful styling and interior calm, combined with a beautifully tranquil and generous town garden. It offers 6 bedrooms, including a ground floor master with en-suite wet room.

A beautiful homely house, with an abundance of well loved features, it really does have a unique quality to it. Full of elegant architectural touches and cosy finishes, we understand that the oldest stone built part of the house dates to the late 15th century, with the the more recent areas being Victorian/Edwardian. The house has been well maintained and benefits from a recently renovated roof.

Arimathean Cottage also comes with an added bonus… Currently run as a boutique residential spiritual retreat/B&B, and ranked top 6 in Glastonbury with a Certificate of Excellence on Trip Advisor, this also represents a rare opportunity to purchase a home that really could provide an entirely new lifestyle.
