This is a B&B where the charm of the host is its crowning glory (Chuck was away when we stayed, so Emma was our sole host). Glebe House is lovely: spacious and comfortable and with glorious views of the surrounding Devon countryside. Our room was spotlessly clean and warm and the selection of teas and coffee on our hospitality tray most impressive; and we really appreciated the tiny fridge with fresh milk. Shower room was equally spotless and we loved the power shower. On our first evening, having arrived fairly late, Emma welcomed us with the offer of a glass of wine but we opted for tea and biscuits. We'd asked for dinner that evening and were served with three delicious courses. The following morning's breakfast was so good in both quality and quantity we didn't need to eat anything else for the whole of the day. We had a full English and would particularly recommend the black pudding. Emma's home made preserves would be hard to beat too.
When we find a good B&B - and Glebe House is well up there with the best - we always say we hope to return but for various reasons this rarely happens. We really, really hope to do it this time.
