There is so much to do and see in Somerset. When our guests are staying for longer than a couple of days, I like to suggest that they explore further afield. Glastonbury is very much a Somerset town, and shares in the distinct character of this part of South-West England. We have been blessed with golden October sun. So Sally and I were delighted to spend a Sunday afternoon at Tyntesfield, a Victorian Gothic house with extensive and beautiful grounds. They even grow their own niche vegetables.
(Veggies at Tyntesfield, which any hobbit would envy!)
Our workshop space at Kylemore House is a comfortable ground-floor room with space for up to 12 people. Its French windows give onto our garden - particularly stunning when our roses are in full bloom. I will be blogging more about workshops and events in a week or two. For now I'll share a detail from our unusual fireplace - a white bouquet from Eloise's Bennet's wonderful Reiki workshop, that remained vibrant and fragrant for days after.
Here in Glastonbury, we have a number of regular events, from spiritual trainings, festivals of celebration to various 'happenings'. Our unique little Somerset town plays host to pilgrims and party people throughout the year. But one of the most popular is the Fairy Fayre & Ball, organised by www.faeryevents.com.
This Autumn's Fairy Fayre takes place on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 October and I invite anyone who hasn't experienced Glastonbury filled with fae folk to come and partake! With Samhain approaching, what better time to approach the OtherWorld? And with fairies in our mind, we at Kylemore House wanted to share a picture of one of the many little spirits in our garden (see above). We still have accommodation for the weekend of the Fairy Fayre so if you are staying that weekend, why not come and experience our magical garden too?
