THE HERMITAGE WELLHOUSE LANE, GLASTONBURY, BA6 8BL 

About the Area 
Glastonbury is internationally known as a beautiful historic and very friendly town. Its past and its present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It's been a religious centre throughout history and back into the times of legends. There was a Celtic monastery here by 500 AD which, in the next 1000 years evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and today is a small thriving town and a major tourist venue, welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey.

* 
Just 5 miles from Glastonbury is Wells, the smallest city in England (population 11,000). Its centre is the market place (local markets twice a week) surrounded by many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. There are excellent local schools and the private sector includes Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, All Hallows and the Bruton schools. About 12 miles south east is Castle Cary station with a main rail line to London.
