Abbey House

Abbey House originated as a gentleman's residence and was built in the early 19th century for John Fry Reeves, a banker with antiquarian interests.

Built in Tudor Gothic style, the siting and style of the house were determined by its setting in the grounds of the abbey.

From its foundation it provided spectacular views straight down the length of the ruined abbey church and the Lady Chapel; these views remain today.

When it was sold at the turn of the last century, it was advertised with some "interesting ruins in the garden" - we have come a long way since the abbey was described in those terms!

Today Abbey House is an important part of the Glastonbury Abbey estate and events and functions are being planned for 2018 to help contribute to the conservation and upkeep of the House as well as the abbey itself. Details of events and tickets can be found here www.glastonburyabbeyshop.com.

The sitting room, drawing room, library and a small meeting room are all available to hire.

There are also specific events taking place at Abbey House so please check what's on or the events page at the shop as we are taking bookings for lunches and afternoon teas.
