Welcome to Pendragon House in Glastonbury Somerset UK

Pendragon House is located close to the heart of Glastonbury, 5 minutes from both the High Street and the bottom of the Tor, yet right on the edge of the countryside. The house has rooms and suites for residents and guests. We live together as family, sharing in one another's lives; living here involves being prepared to work on the things that arise when living closely with others. Of course we enjoy privacy whenever needed, but we also try make an effort to contribute of our energy to the community we live in.

A few advantages of communal living include sharing of lifes' responsibilities and child care, a broader social base, learning to better understand ourselves and tolerence for others, being less likely to feel lonely, regularly eating excellent organic meals, buying food in bulk at less cost and from better sources, and living more energy efficiently.

Our gardens include an orchard, vegetable patch and lawns. We all share a big kitchen and normally there is at least one communal meal a day, with commune members, children, volunteers and guests filling the kitchen table. The living room is big enough to also be used for other things, it has table tennis, a grand piano, movie projector and sound system. It also has a fabulous big window looking down over the gardens, farmland and distant hills, with birds swooping below and occasional sightings of wild dear.

All rooms have south facing windows and the sun keeps the house naturally warm. We try to be fossil fuel free, there is no gas or oil, in the winter months a 45kW biomass boiler heats the house, and individual wood stoves. We have a large solar system and put as much electricity back into the grid as we use.

Situated on the edge of town we watch cows from the nearby organic dairy farm grazing on the fields and see the mists of Avalon rolling across the Somerset levels. Friends are in and out of the house (we ask people to please be respectful of our neighbours).
