Attention to detail, beautifully decorated rooms and a very welcoming ethos. This is a gem, not to be missed. The welcome was warm and made you feel that the place was yours to relax in and enjoy. Piles of interesting books, magazines and CDs lie around, inviting to browse. The bedroom was so beautifully decorated and the bed and bedding... More

Glenholme Country House is the perfect place to unwind. Our room was stunning; tastefully decorated with gorgeous views, a really comfortable bed with soft linen sheets and the (beautiful) en suite had a lovely strong shower. The gardens were a riot of colour and large enough to roam around in. Jennifer and Laurence are superb hosts. The food is WONDERFUL;... More

We spent 3 nights in the Nicholson room which is lovely: big comfortable old bed with lovely white linen and very powerful shower in the ensuite. The whole house is very nicely turned out with excellent period features retained and tasteful but individual decor. Laurence looked after us perfectly with help on where to go for walks, where to eat,... More

Stayed for four nights in October, and had a wonderful time. The house is beautifully decorated, has a lovely relaxed ambience and a luxurious feel. Helpful but not intrusive owners. We booked it because it has a lovely library with big sofas and a log fire, which we thought we might need if the weather was bad but we got... More

The Rookery self-catering cottage that's attached to the Glenholme Country House is just lovely. Very nicely decorated, super clean & well equipped. Really nice bathroom and kitchen. We had a really relaxing week here with plenty of rest, open fires and general all-round loveliness. Also a really good selection of novels and board games and the owners are very generous... More

Large old building with fabulously quirky interior design - think old leather suitcases and large glass bowls; a wallpaper panel made of the pages of a book and another featuring old candle wall lights. This is all Jennifer's doing Rooms graceful and well appointed - bathrooms especially good with large shower and generous towels. Breakfasts are wonderful - yoghurts and... More

We managed a few days here at Easter 2013 and could not be happier. The weather was extremely cold and snowy but the warmth of the welcome and the roaring log fires certainly made us feel very at home. We had dinner on two evenings and rate Laurence very highly as a chef. Breakfasts too were wonderful and a huge... More

Stayed here recently on a Saturday night. End to end, this was a wonderful bed and breakfast experience. We were well looked after by the Glenholme's owners, Jennifer & Laurence. Our room, the Nicolson, is on the 1st floor at the top of the stairs - very well appointed with a super en suite, offering a real power shower (very... More

A lovely, relaxing stay. The house is just a joy for anyone remotely interested in interior design. Jennifer has a great eye for combining the unusual, with the scandinavian influence clearly in evidence. Great food courtesy of Lawrence; the breakfasts were a real treat. Wonderfully quiet room, with a vey comfortable four poster bed. A great place for a treat.

We spent a delightful couple of days staying in this wonderful house. Jennifer and Lawrence were the perfect hosts. The library, with its endless books, quality hi fi and roaring log fire was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The local area is well worth exploring too.
