Our Glastonbury B&B : The Covenstead [Nov. 4th, 2013|06:01 pm]

This Glastonbury we stayed at the Covenstead B&B, it was such an amazing place I got a bit camera happy there and it did deserve its own little folder.
Most warm and welcoming stay thanks to Adele, the rooms as you can see in photos are a gothic witchy dream…we had a wonderful dark wood 4 posters bed with black velvet chaise long, gothic miroir and throne (we were permited to have a peek at all the other ones before we left and they are all just as beautiful all in their own unique style).
As well as amazing furniture it is all in the details, the walls are full of my favourite artists (pre-Raphaelites, Klimt , Botticelli…) fab painted murals and every sort of magic collectables and memorabilias. The place is like a little museum of witchcraft, I could have spent hours just been shown around it all, browsing the ornaments and bookshelves. The B&B also has a little living room/kitchen, dining room and temple.
The dining room alone would be my dream party room with amazing gothic chairs and being Halloween we even had Miss Haversham and her wedding cake sharing breakfast with us.
The breakfast in itself was the yummiest I have had…from fab fruit salad full of fresh berries, mangos and strawberries, to full English and hot croissants.
I wasn’t sure I would ever fit in my corset again. On top of all this the lovely personal touch of a Halloween card and box of chocolate in the room on arrival. Due to the period of the year… the entry way was an Halloween fest by itself and I think pretty much each time we went by we either played or posed with a different props…creepy rocking chairs, zombie babies with turning heads, red eyes creatures, coffins,…just pure whoa…
In many ways I want to tell everyone about it and many ways I want to keep it a secret as I want to stay there again and again.

What a great place! I do wonder if you ever retire to run a B&B you'll end up with a place just like that - but better!

That is the most awesome baroque dressing table, and the white room is lovely too. The owner must have put so much work into designing it, and doing the murals and everything.

I guess it's her dog that's in the pictures? What's with its strange collar?

Ah of course, the collar to keep them from biting stitches. Usually they have a cone round their face, and bump into everything, so that looks rather easier for the dog.
