Glastonbury: Somerset town hits all the right notes

Glastonbury: Somerset town hits all the right notes

The famous festival might have come and gone over the weekend past, but those who are looking for somewhere new to live this summer, having a peek at property for sale in Glastonbury can prove to be a very worthwhile task that sees them find a wonderful new place to live.

While one weekend in June will see more than 130,000 temporary residents descend on the nearby Worthy Farm for the festival that takes its name from the town, Glastonbury itself is a peaceful little settlement for the rest of the year with only 8,000 or so residents, making it the ideal option for those looking to get away from the city and the busy streets and roads that come with larger settlements.

Those looking for something to do can take in some of the many walks on offer, with greenery and hills not in short supply around the local area. Whether exploring the Somerset Levels or taking a stroll up the Tor hill, there will always be a way to get in touch with nature.

And for those who have an eye for all things legendary, there are a number of legends associated with the local area. Why not seek out the truth behind the King Arthur story, for example?

For families, the town is also ideal. As well as having the chance to be closer to nature and enjoy some fresh air, you can rest assured that schooling options in Glastonbury are adequate.

There are a range of infant and primary schools within the area, as well as St Dunstan's Secondary, where all of the kids from the town will go from the age of 11. Strode College also provides the sixth form education within the town.

And for those seeking out something a little different, the fact Glastonbury has long been seen as a centre for the New Age way of life can make the many local shops a great quirky place to pick up rare and unique items.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801607793-ADNFCR
