Hi. I like the idea of having the pub next door as i dont drink much but at least i can have a couple of drinks without having to drive back to hotel.

Re: Glastonbury out of season

I've never been to Glastonbury or anywhere else in that area, but this year I intend to get out & about a bit more

So I plan on going to The Wilderness Gathering, which is a bushcraft show in Wiltshire (do not confuse this with the Wilderness Festival which is a pop music festival in Oxfordshire)

I live in Lancashire so anywhere in the south usually involves negotiating Spaghetti Junction.
To make the most of this effort I will also do a bit of touristing around Wiltshire, Somerset & Dorset, including Glastonbury, making a mixture of camping and B&Bs

I stayed at a Premier Inn a couple of years ago, as it was convenient, and to see what they were like. I couldn't stand the place
I'd rather pay a bit more for a hotel with some sort of character, or ask around for a local pub or B&B, or go to a campsite
I'll also look out for a Hostel - YHA or Independent

Its starting to sound even better I wonder if they do breakfasts as when I'm away a good breakfast sets me up for the day.

Glastonbury is a nice place. Ok its my spiritual home being an old hippie type, but there's plenty to see there.

I looked online at the Wilderness Gathering briefly but it did look interesting to me. I will find out more.

I think you can avoid spaghetti junction by taking the toll road but I've driven through it lots of times and apart from the traffic jams had no problems. Have you got a sat Nav?

Yes, they do breakfast Momdays Child. Though it isn't usually included in the room price, it's extra.

Faery Fayre on 10th March, I think Brian Froud and his wife will be there doing a talk if you're interested.

I wouldn't go out of your way to visit Glastonbury, its very run down and not much there at all.
