Beautiful place to stay, we was made most comfortable by both Jill and David, stayed for almost four months Monday ~ Friday due to work commitments along with my husband. In the end it became home and we was both very sad to leave the property, will always remember The Glen, and wish Jill and David all the best with... More

We stayed two nights, and The Glen is one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed in. The friendly hosts were extremely helpful with recommendations for local dining and places to visit. Breakfasts were plentiful with variety of fruits, jams, cereals as well as nicely cooked eggs, etc. The bed was comfortable and we couldn't ask for a... More

The rooms were very clean and had everything you needed even a torch. There was excellent tea facilities in the room and a good choice of biscuits. The owners were very helpful if you needed any information. For breakfast you were given a fantastic choice.

Lovely accommodation, bedroom had good tea making facilities and was well stocked with snacks. Generous sized ensuite bathroom. Breakfasts were superb. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Only one drawback - the property is beside a busy main road, so leaving the bedroom window open while we were in wasn't an option, due to the noise from the road.

There was a vast choice for breakfast and the items I chose for my cooked breakfast were freshly cooked exactly to my... More
