Why we've chosen Tordown:

Why is this a greener holiday?

To truly minimise the environmental impact, guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport: the nearest train station is Castle Cary and from here it’s only possible to reach Tordown by taxi. From Bristol Templemeads there is the 376 bus to Glastonbury Town Hall. Once in Glastonbury it is either a 5 minute taxi ride or a 20 minute uphill walk. Alternatively, there are coaches from Victoria Coach Station London to Glastonbury or to Bristol Templemeads from which you can take the 376 bus to Glastonbury.

Onsite the owners have taken a number of green measures to reduce the environmental impact of their tourism business, earning them Gold from the GTBS. Energy-saving light bulbs are used throughout and radiators have an independent thermostat so they can be turned down. The owners conserve water with the installation of low capacity dual flush toilet and water butts for harvesting for garden watering. Additionally, they compost garden waste and feed some leftover food to visiting badgers.
