We have stayed at Glebe House twice as a stopover on the way to Cornwall with a young family.
Glebe House is a lovely country house situated at the top of a hill giving it the most enviable views over the Devon countryside. Our room was at the front giving us these beautiful views on waking. We were in their huge family room with a double bed for us and 2 singles for the big boys plus they kindly supplied a cot for the toddler (though we brought sheets). We even had our own fridge to make tea in the morning.
Emma and Chuck are both so welcoming, making us feel more like part of the family than guests. It is such a relaxing, beautiful place - a great start to our holiday!
This time we stayed two nights and Emma had some great suggestions about things to do in the area (we picked a day in Beer, a beautiful coastal village 10 mins drive away). During the evenings, Emma and Chuck kindly opened up the pool and tennis court for our older boys while the youngest had a ball wandering around the garden looking at the cows, horse and goats.
Our stay at Glebe House meant that we arrive early in our Cornish hotel having enjoyed a relaxed and sumptuous breakfast - what a difference from the dawn start to arrive late afternoon!
In all, our trip to Glebe House felt like less like a stopover and more like a holiday itself. Can't wait to return next year! Thank you so much Emma and Chuck.
