new wookey witch

October was a very busy month at Mowbarton; NOVEMBER looks set to be slightly quieter (although I took another last minute booking only yesterday and am getting enquiries every day!). This means we should have time to get ready for our first ever Yoga Retreat, led by Jamie Heseltine. The Retreat will take place from 6 - 8 December and will focus on preparation for the Winter Solstice. What better place to meditate and practise yoga than within sight of the mystical Glastonbury Tor? There are still a couple of places available. For more information, email

One of the big items of local news recently was the recruitment of a new witch at Wookey Hole Caves - in time for Halloween of course! Wookey is ten minutes by car from Mowbarton so an absolute must for guests.

November began with a flurry of wind and rain but they say it won't last - fingers crossed! This month is Carnival month in Somerset so there was plenty going on in the area. The Carnival season ended at Glastonbury with one of the most spectacular parades ever. Carnival week is growing in popularity year by year so it may be worth booking ahead for 2014.  

We have seen our first 'murmuration' of starlings down on the Levels - and of course the leaves are beginning to turn.
