Several miles north of Ashton Cottages Somerset.  Glastonbury is a spot on the Mendip hills known as Deerleap. It is well known by local artists because of the far reaching views it provides over the Somerset Levels and of Glastonbury Tor nestled in amongst the hills. On misty mornings it is the perfect spot to appreciate just how flat the landscape is and how it would’ve looked thousands of years ago when the area was under water. On mornings like this it becomes an island once again.
