Rie’s Retreat is the perfect place to stay when visiting the enchanting town of Glastonbury. This was my first time in Glasto, and I count myself lucky for finding such a wonderful, clean and stylish property to stay. I stayed in the Emerald Room and the bed was amazingly comfortable. I truly had the best night’s sleep in years! All the décor in this house is stylish and tasteful. The bathroom was also designed to a very high spec, and every attention to detail was thought about. The breakfast provided was fresh, healthy and delicious. I absolutely loved Rie’s home-made granola and other culinary delights. I must add how the host, Rie, is such a genuinely warm, friendly and hospitable person. As a solo traveller, she made me feel so welcome and gave me valuable insights into which sacred sites to explore and how to make the most of my short stay. The sites were in very close walking distance. There is a very special energy and tranquillity in this B and B; a truly unique vibe. I came away feeling rejuvenated and spiritually connected to the place, and that wasn’t only due to the delightfully unique town. Rie’s Retreat has a mystical and magical charm of its own, which I thoroughly recommend travellers to discover for themselves.

If you are looking for a relaxing, chilled break then I cannot recommend Rie’s Retreat enough. We booked the whole house for 6 adults, tastefully decorated and everything you could possibly need. Rie is a superb host and very informative. When we arrived she had just baked a banana and walnut cake for my daughter’s birthday, which was delicious. Nothing is too much trouble for her, she organised a holistic massage for myself and my son at her Retreat, which was very much needed. Beautiful garden to relax in which included a hammock and plenty of essential food to eat including Rie’s homemade granola. 5/5 star rating!!

Marie is such a star. The house was so fabulous, clean and very cozy. All that we needed are provided for! My friends and I really had a great time. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to stay a bit longer. The next time we visit, we’ll book again here (as so close to the main attractions!). :)
We loved staying at Rie's Retreat. It was a perfect location for exploring Glastonbury and the surrounding areas. Rie's Retreat is a true Glastonbury experience - so relaxed, comfortable and tranquil. Rie left so many little touches which made our stay so special. Comfy beds, unique decor, lovely bathrooms and a beautiful and sunny garden to relax in. Would definitely recommend and hope we can stay again!
Rie is such an attentive and hospitable host, she really does think of everything! Her cooking is wonderful and her warm welcome really is so lovely. Her home is spotlessly clean and has such a homely vibe. Her local knowledge is great and she is more than happy to help with any plans etc. She really made my stay special and I will be returning soon. Thank you Rie x
Marie is a great host. She’s so friendly and welcoming and happy to help with anything. She has lots of local knowledge. The room and house are clean and beautifully presented. She offers lovely dinners for a very reasonable price too. Great location - 5-10 minute walk to the high street. I’ll definitely stay with Marie again when I’m in the area.

BOOK NOW! I would give Rie's place an extra star if possible. You will have no regrets booking this wonderful Airbnb. It has everything you need for a super comfortable stay. Even that thing you forgot to bring, Rie has is available. Loved all the special touches, and the breakfast is incredible. Homemade, fresh and healthy. The house is clean, comfortable, stylish and it has a Bathtub! The garden is beautiful too, spacious and perfect place to relax. We feel rejuvenated and will come back. All round amazing.

I've stayed at Rie's place 3 times now, and will keep coming back time and time again! Glastonbury is one of my favourite places in the UK and Rie's Retreat makes every visit truly relaxing! (Even with my 2 kids and dog in tow this time). The kids had a fab time and really didn't want to go home at all. We'll definitely be staying longer next time! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
The magical town of Glastonbury is already one of the best places to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Rie's Retreat is the perfect complement to that experience: a beautiful, well-situated house where every detail is taken care of, every room is spotless and tidy, and where you can also enjoy Rie's fantastic cooking skills.
Trust me on that one, you DO want her to cook for you: a fully vegetarian cuisine that will not make you miss anything, even if you are a meat-lover like myself.
And if this is still not enough, you also get an amazing and well-curated garden to enjoy reading, or just take in the beauty of the Somerset skies. And if you have a pet, they will be fully welcomed as well...It really does not get any better.

Amazing clean place! Love the location and the homes ambience too
Marie is a wonderful host and I can't wait to come back to stay at her beautiful retreat!
We had a great time staying with you and in Glastonbury! Thank you for being the best hostess ever and I'll be sure to tell all of my friends about this magical place! I can't wait to come back. Merry Christmas! All the best to you! Love, Anja
A comfortable stylish home with such a warm and welcoming host. Nothing was too much trouble. Rie was so thoughtful and friendly. Our room was lovely and the huge bathroom was fantastic. Breakfast was wonderful too. Many thanks to Rie. A stay in her home is thoroughly recommended.
Rie’s place is a must, every detail is well cared, clean, tidy and an amazing atmosphere that makes you feel warm and welcomed, the room is cosy and breakfast delicious, good location to walk around Glastonbury, and Rie is an amazing person! I not only recommend I plan to come back soon!
For the one day we stayed and passed through, Marie’s hospitality was beyond what we could imagine. Such great energy. She went out of her way to make sure my friend and I felt well taken care of, and her place is absolutely lovely. Wonderful bathtubs, clean and cozy linens and very comfortable beds! The location of her place fit all our needs and she was also ready to assist in any way to make our stay the best it could be. We had a great time and look forward to our next return in 9 months.
My husband, 4 friends and I stayed for his surprise 30th birthday which was a weekend full of food, games and occasional outings! We honestly could not fault Rie’s Retreat! It had everything! We even cooked a full roast without worrying about bringing trays etc! It’s the kind of place you go and all life’s worries disappear! Rie herself (an absolute angel) was in her converted garage there to help at any time, but only upon our approach... Our 2 dogs were free to roam and play in the completely enclosed garden and beds were heavenly! Would 100% recommend this place... we even arranged last minute to stay another night as we weren’t ready to leave! Thanks for having us!
A wonderful house, clean and spacious with everything you'd need and the most trustworthy and reliable of hosts. Great location, easy parking. Perfect.
Very well located. And the cherry on the Sundae: Rie is a lovely, warm and welcoming host.
It’s just an amazing place, very friendly, nice and clean room, nice value for money great service good view and quote...
Very nice place with a lovely atmosphere and very comfy. Lots of little extras like toiletries, slippers, candles, homemade bread and granola for breakfast with fresh fruit. Very clean place. Would recommend Rie’s house for a relaxing break and the massage lady she put us in touch with came to the house and it was a wonderful experience.
Rie is a lovely welcoming host with a spiritual home in keeping with Glastonbury. Highly recommended. Lucy & Rich
Warm, clean and welcoming and a short 10-minute stroll to the centre of Glastonbury. Marie was very accommodating re parking etc. Fabulous bathroom and large choice for breakfast. Highly recommended.
This was truly one of the most amazing Airbnb experiences I’ve had. Marie was incredibly kind and generous and I felt so well cared for. The space was beautiful and in an amazing location. I really enjoyed interacting with the hosts and other guests, and truly felt at home. I recommend staying here 100%!
We absolutely loved this house! It's very conveniently located in Glastonbury for either walking to the Tor or walking to the central street of shops and restaurants. It's beautifully decorated but also very comfortable, and everything was spotlessly clean and well organized and labelled. There was a guest fridge and breakfast fixings all ready for us, which was a huge help as we were leaving too early in the morning to plan on breakfast at a cafe! Marie was an absolutely wonderful host and available to answer questions and very easy to communicate with beforehand as well. The beautiful interior and wonderful hosting make this a place we'll come back to in a heartbeat if we're ever in the area again!
Marie's house was lovely and had everything we needed and more. She paid great attention to detail with homemade extras, such as muesli. Glastonbury did not disappoint - it's a special place.
Rie was simply the best! Such a great host. Everything was well designed, Practical and perfect! Would come back for sure!!
Marie's space was just beautiful. Very clean, modern baths, comfortable beds, lovely touches in and around the home. We especially loved the den with all the great books. Wonderful location. Breakfast awaits before you're off and running. Try the granola. Easy communication before and during our stay although we missed meeting in person. Would stay again in a heartbeat! Thx Rie
Marie’s home was like a home away from home. It was clean and comfortable and there were so many thoughtful touches. The conservatory was the perfect place for breakfast and the garden is a peaceful place for contemplation. The location is perfect for exploring Glastonbury and the surrounding area and I would definitely recommend it for value and comfort with everything you need for a wonderful stay. I can’t wait to visit again.
Had a wonderful stay with Rie end of August. Was lucky to stay in the gold room, has a beautiful and huge en-suite bathroom with an enormous bathtub! Very welcome after day of extensive walks. Rie is an amazing host, very helpful with tips on local events, and her location is perfect for easy walk into town. Highly recommend!
Such a welcoming and relaxed place! We felt instantly at home! Rie was so warm and kind! She even had a birthday cake ready for my arrival as she knew it was my birthday that day! We stayed in the Gold Room which had a beautiful bath to relax in! I will be back every time I come to Glastonbury! Beautiful
Absolutely wonderful room, peaceful, comfortable, cosy and lovely decor. Easy to find, no fuss and Marie is a great host. Authentic, warm and open-hearted. Will definitely visit again.
What a gem! Sunny, light-filled rooms, perfectly situated to both the High Street and an easy walk to the Tor, Chalice Well and other sacred sites. Rie is an amazing hostess with added touches that make you feel truly and home and taken care of during your stay.
Me and my partner stayed over when Glastonbury festival was on we normally do tents but never again Rie was lovely the place is lovely and only 17 min drive from the festival Rie was the perfect host and breakfast was lovely I’ll def be going back next year x
Rie's Place is beautiful, clean and so handy for walking around Glastonbury. Rie is a warm, kind-hearted host who goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Her attention to detail in her gorgeous home makes it such a cosy and welcoming space. I highly recommend for both personal retreats and if you are bringing a group to Avalon. Will return!
We both loved Marie’s house. The bed was comfy, the bedroom overlooked the back of the house was so peaceful and quiet. The bathroom looks new, loads of toiletries for us to use. We had a wonderful breakfast. A great location, easily walkable to the High Street and Chalice Wells. And Marie is lovely and a fabulous host, we’ll definitely be coming back.
Ries retreat is a great place to stay. Walking distance to Glastonbury. We stayed in the Gold room which has a beautiful big ensuite bathroom. There were fresh cut flowers from the garden in vases which was a lovely touch. The breakfast was delicious with a selection of fresh fruit, croissants, homemade granola, eggs etc. Nothing was too much trouble. Marie is a fantastic host who has a warm, friendly and happy soul. Definitely highly recommend this place.
La casa de Marie es excelente. Tiene todo. Limpieza, ubicación, abundancia en el desayuno y todo de primera calidad. Ella nos ha hecho unas cenas para los grupos exquisitas. Es una gran cocinera. Nos ha asistido en todo lo que necesitamos. Es comprensiva, amorosa y tiene muy buena disposición para ayudarnos. Estamos felices de haber estado dos semanas en su casa y con sus servicios. Gracias Marie, hasta el año que viene! Paula y Martín.
My boyfriend and I had a great time in Glastonbury. And staying at Rie's place, made it even greater. Rie is very hospitable and very welcoming. The place is very clean, spacious and in the heart of Glastonbury. Highly recommended!
Marie is a wonderfully welcoming host and her place is really beautiful...feels like a real treat staying at her place. I went there with my 8-year-old daughter and she loved it too. The Golden room is special- very comfortable beds, clean, beautifully decorated, and the bathroom is lush! Great breakfast with glass doors opening up to the garden. Thanks, Marie!
I had the best experience! Rie is such a warm and welcoming host that made me feel so comfortable as a solo traveller. Her house is beautiful, modern, clean and updated, and conveniently located minutes from town and all the special sites. The homemade granola that she offers in the morning is so good and she was very accommodating of a vegan diet. She also gave me a lift to the train station which was very helpful and kind. I would recommend Rie’s retreat to anyone looking for a homey and comfortable stay while exploring all the magic that Glasto has to offer!
Marie is the most wonderful host and her house is amazing. It’s very near the town and other places you’d want to visit. For me, it’s all the little touches that Marie offers that sets her accommodation and hospitality apart from other places. If you’re considering staying in Glastonbury I would totally recommend staying at Rie House ❤️
Wow! What a beautiful place to stay right in the heart of Glastonbury. Marie has made her wonderful home very welcoming, it has lots of space, an energy full of love with lots of thoughtful touches to make your stay extra special. I can highly recommend Marie’s place if you’re looking for someone special to stay.
f you are lucky enough to find this property available, look no further! It is a beautiful and luxury home from home the host was so kind and welcoming and had thought of everything we could possibly want to make our stay extra special ... wonderful ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We spent 3 nights at Marie's place! It has a comfortable, homely athmosphere! She is an extraordinary host and was helpful in every respect! She is a great person, fun and caring! We felt at ease and enjoyed every moment! We highly recommend her place!

Marie was incredibly welcoming and a very conscientious host. She welcomed us and then left us to it, you wouldn’t even know she was tucked away at the top of the garden. There was everything you could need, she even baked bread for us fresh out of the oven for our arrival. All of us who stayed were vegans and she ensured there were dairy-free milk and provisions for our breakfast, allowed us to park on her drive for the whole day after check out and even let us use her loo later on that evening before we had a long drive home. So she went way out of her way to accommodate us. The house is a short walk away from everything and there was loads of lovely light space in Marie’s Home so you can experience the best of both worlds. All 5 of us who stayed would happily stay there again...there’s even a basket of slippers if you’ve forgotten your own. ( so cute) Amazing bath, showers and great kitchen facilities and everything was very clean! Thanks, Marie!!x
Just everything you need and more. Rie is more than a SUPER-HOST. !!!This place is special at every level. We will be back to enjoy our time in Glastonbury again. Thank you for your impeccable hospitality and charm. Love Paul & Emma x
Rie's home is beautiful. Very clean and spacious. Better than expected. Minutes walk to Glastonbury town, and Rie has lots of great advice on places to visit, eat etc. There is a lovely selection of breakfast in the mornings, and Rie's homemade granola is amazing! Would definitely recommend and hope to be back soon. Thank you :-)
Rie is an amazing host who clearly loves doing her best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble for her and the small details and little touches she adds make you feel welcome as soon as you step inside the front door. We were a group of Italians and she even spoke Italian to us!
A beautifully presented retreat, with plenty of light, space and a fantastic garden. Rie's Retreat is in a great location with Glastonbury Tor, Glastonbury Abbey, The Chalice Well and the high street all within walking distance. Rie is delightful, a warm and friendly lady who welcomes you wholeheartedly into her home. She offers guests vegetarian and vegan food which she prepares herself and sources locally. A real treat for anyone looking to stay in Glastonbury - highly recommended!
Having stayed in a number of air bnbs this one tops the lot. I booked the whole house for an instructor retreat and team building and its a wonderful space for workshops too. so of you're looking to run a small retreat don't bother looking elsewhere this has got it all. Thoughtfully done out everything is top spec, lovely gardens and a 5-minute walk to Glastonbury high street. so I gave the team some time out to explore the sites which was gratefully received and as it's so close its achievable. The icing on the cake was the host herself, Rie. she really looked after us with lots of extra touches and is a genuinely lovely, interesting and joyful person. what was nice is she makes it clear that she's there if you want her , and it's very private the best host I've encountered. I've tried to think of a downside but I honestly say I can't think of one. wonderful, 5 stars.
This place is my very favourite! Rie is wonderful and her home is filled with beautiful little details. I was so happy staying here and I felt so welcomed. It was like staying with a good friend who happened to have a beautiful home located within easy walking distance of everything Glastonbury! Couldn't be any better
Luxury accommodation and plenty of room for socialising in a stylish place within easy walking distance of town and tor.
Really nice house. Marie was helpful and timely with her communication and we had a great time in Glastonbury. Living spaces and rooms are nice and as pictured. Kitchen was great and Marie let us help ourselves to her food which was very nice of her. Marie is friendly and helpful. When the house is rented out as a whole she lives in a cabin in the garden as indicated in her listing info.
Everything is great, I wish I could have a chance come back next time ;)
Highly recommended! Very comfortable accommodation and everything is to a very high standard.
Marie's place is a big, clean and comfortable house and we really enjoyed our stay there. We were really well looked after and there were loads of thoughtful touches to make our stay even better. The highlight of the house for us was the kitchen, which is huge and really well kitted out, and made cooking really easy.
Outstanding place to stay
A casa é muito bem localizada, com decoração estilosa, muito confortável, e a anfitriã é muito amável e gentil. Tudo perfeito!
Ries place is lovely. Everything is so clean, lovely comfy beds and sofas and a lovely big garden. Rie was very welcoming, we felt so at home. She cooked us lovely food and there were so many lovely little touches. A 10-minute walk from the centre of Glastonbury it is perfectly located. I would definitely recommend a stay and we will be back soon!!
It's a cosy and lovely decorated house, with a good accommodated kitchen. It‘s clean and you can feel very comfortable. Everything important is in walking distance.
Nice and friendly host, the house is more than comfortable with nice deco. Central location in tiny town Glastonbury, less than 5 minutes to every attraction in the town. Indian takeaway is just 2 minutes drive.
Feels like home
Marie was friendly and fun, helpful beyond all expectations and was a fabulous cook! I held a 5 day retreat here. The space was beautiful, the food was amazing, and Rie was attentive to every need that we had. I would highly recommend Rie and her beautiful and inviting home!
This was the most amazing place, love to come back soon The host is a wonderful person
Rie thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. Your house is stunning and so convenient with great access to local amenities. It was spotlessly clean and the included breakfast items were very welcome. The patio doors leading to the beautiful garden really brought the outside in.
My family of 13 stayed at 5 Airbnbs throughout our 3 weeks stay in England. Rie's house is definitely the best. It is cosy, its contemporary design is very pleasing, the cleanest so far and we regret only staying there for a night. We enjoyed cooking in her kitchen, did some washing, enjoyed her garden and when we finally met her at the end of the stay, Rie turned out to be a warm, bubbly and friendly host. I could not recommend staying here more.
House is large, good for some downtime. Large eating table opens into garden which is lovely & relaxing. The town is very interesting...we suggest you climb the Tor for a great view! Parking is so easy & Marie had coffee & breakfast easy at hand for the mornings. Great stay!
Rie’s house is a wonderful and perfect accommodation in the centre of Glastonbury! It is furnished with so much love for the detail, we felt very comfortable and were pleased to stay there! It has a big kitchen, two so lovely planned living rooms and the highlight for us was the winter garden with so much light and warmth! Rie provided many towels and also soaps and hygiene articles. There were plenty types of tea, we also got milk and eggs - so much, rarely an Airbnb offered to me! Rie and Caroline both are so lovely and welcoming! We had a perfect stay and can highly recommend everyone to plan your visit at Rie’s House!
Una casa muy bonita
Rie's house is an absolutely brilliant Air BnB. Spotlessly clean, lovely thick carpets and very soft towels. The house is filled with lots of thoughtful touches, and it was clear that a lot of care had gone into ensuring her guests have a good stay. It's a short walk to the local pubs and it's very easy to find and check in. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area.
Marie is an amazing hostess. Her house is amazing, with small details which makes you feel very welcome as a guest. I think she has responded within an hour on most of my e-mails, and there have been a few e-mails back and forth as I have been arranging a hen weekend for 8…Read more
Very clean and very nice bathrooms, ample kitchen and good beds. Caroline was a very helpful housekeeper.
Rie is a super host. She is a pleasure to deal with and very responsive. She provided all the amenities you could think of for a good stay. We appreciated her hospitality and highly recommend her.
Rie's BnB was a lovely home, beautiful yard for relaxing, warm and comfortable. The 5 of us were comfortable hanging out in the LR (enjoyed the fireplace immensely!), and the large DR table let us breakfast together while poring over our ongoing plans. The breakfast options were…Read more
Preciosa casa. Bella confortable y tranquila. Marie una encantadora y atenta persona. Un 10 como host. La ubicación buena.zona tranquila.
Marie's place is fantastic, we rented out the whole house for a long weekend and I can't fault it. Great house, close to town, lovely garden, easy communication. All in all a top place!! Thoroughly recommended!
Rie’s home is beautiful and a real treat in the heart of Glastonbury. You will not be disappointed. Great for our family of six or great for a group too. Xxx
Marie’s place is wonderful. It feels very homely and the beds were super comfortable. The house was in walking distance of everything we could need! It made for a very relaxing stay!
Marie's place is beautiful, spacious and very clean. All the rooms were as expected by the description with positive extras and surprises (i.e. delicious baked sweet rolls). We are very satisfied with this place and to be honest, it is plenty positive words to write about this place, but all you need to know, that every word in Marie's description and my feedback is true. Highly recommended place to stay and Marie's communication and welcoming skills is another positive addition to this magical place. You will not be disappointed - promise!
An absolutely beautiful house, so close to town. Felt like home from home, so cosy we didn’t want to leave!
If you are looking for a place to stay in Glastonbury then look no further! Marie's b&b is cosy, comfortable and has just about every amenity going. She was a great host - very communicative and willing to go the extra mile for her guests. Our group very much enjoyed our weekend staying there and would recommend it to anyone. Parking and check-in were simple too. A great Airbnb find!
She's really comprehensive. Lovely person. Recommended for everyone.
We really enjoyed our stay at Rie’s house in Glastonbury. The space was beautiful and full of light and there were great choices for breakfast. Lots of little touches like fresh flowers made our stay feel very special. Excellent value too. Would definitely recommend.
Marie is a wonderful host. Her b&b is very centrally located and is the best option in town. Beautiful and clean rooms, great breakfast buffet served in a lovely winter garden. A warm and friendly environment and a fantastic host. Marie is kind, welcoming, very available and just…Read more
We would love to stay here again. Rie was a great host and the house was outstanding. Rie went above and beyond as a host. There were several personal touches that made our trip perfect. There was a birthday cake for the birthday girl. And Rie generously pushed back the time we…Read more
