The host and hostess were lovely without being too much (which I have experience from previously when the host don't leave you alone), the room was so nice and clean and warm and... More

Stopped at glenville on 3 other occasions. My wife and I both agree that Peter and jayne are great host and nothing is to much trouble. The rooms are lovely and clean and cosy, breakfast fantastic. You would be lucky to get a better choice at a top hotel. Would highly recommend.

Its our first night of 3 and wow it ticks all our boxes you must try it, the icing on the cake is the sound of the stream and the view of the wood from our bedroom, heaven. Quality at a very reasonable price.
