Glen Cottage
Ranked #6 of 6 Chudleigh B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 22, 2013

This was our first stay here and we stayed for 5 nights. If you want an excellent B&B in a fascinating 17th century building, then this is the place for you, especially if you are interested in wildlife. Peregrine Falcons, Kingfishers, Herons and Foxes have all been seen here. We saw the Falcon on several occasions and heard an owl one night. The owners, Terry & Jill, are a welcoming, friendly Devonian couple who run the B&B on an informal basis. The room we had was very comfortable (one of two four-poster bed rooms available) with a great view of the grounds. Room rates are very reasonable and represent very good value in our opinion. The breakfast each day was wonderful with a wide choice of cereal, fruit juice, yoghurt, toast and a lovely cooked breakfast which Jill will adapt willingly to your choice. Jill’s homemade marmalade and jam were superb too. We recommend Glen Cottage and we will be looking to stay there again on our future trips to Devon.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front have good views of the grounds.

We had an excellent time there and beleive it Jill is such an excellent host. We went there in a group of three families, and we enjoyed every bit of our stay there.
Breakfast was so good with all kind of varied stuff.
In short the best B&B with such a reasonable tarriff.

Well I needed a place to stay in the area due to work and this place was great. So much so I have been back several times and I think I have been in every room. Most rooms have ensuite but a good bathroom is central upstairs.
The property is set in a super location and very easy to get to from the main road between Exeter and Plymouth.
Glen Cottage would make a good base for visiting a wide range of attractions that Devon has to offer from the moors to the coast or if you want shopping well Exeter with all its history or Plymouth with its maritime history.
Please note this place is not a flash hotel and does not claim to be. It is a Home and when you visit you are made to feel as if you are family by the host.
I have seen some comments on here and I know we are all differant but I got to know the host quite well over the course around 13 months. The host Terry and Jill as they wished to be called could not be any more in the know about the area, that has so many people from away moving into this area and retireing. Terry who reached retirement age a few years ago was born in this house so I am sorry to say knows a lot of history and was willing to share this with me over a cup of tea sat in front of a log fire with some of Jills cake.
I would recomend this B&B to anyone if you like a place with some atmosphire. But remember it is an old place so maybe sound could be an issue but it is located at the end of the road so no road noise.
If you do decide to visit ask Terry to let you into some of the things that went on in the past.
I myself have spent time on business and leasure here.

Room Tip: I have put some photos from various time I stayed. I must go back again soon.

This was the most amazing house we ever seen, straight from any old English film. We had two four-poster bed rooms with kitchen and lounge between us. Could stay there much longer than our two nights and explore the surroundings, walks, inns nature. The hosts were suitably casual and relaxed but professional as was the housekeeping. Planning a walking trip with a group of friends sometime to return to this amazing old house.

Room Tip: The two four-poster bed rooms were huge and if with friends, the sharing of the kitchen and the loun...

We're in our 70s and after many years experience of B&B we can do no more than heartily recommend Glen Cottage. Jill and Terry are delightful hosts and this impression is enhanced by their informal and friendly approach to their guests.

The 'Cottage' is situated in an old overgrown craggy quarry where peregrine falcons and kingfishers are to be seen. The extensive informal gardens are delightful and it is difficult to imagine anything more peaceful.

On first arrival you may be disturbed by a view of old vehicles in need of repair but please set that impression aside - proceed and you will enter the realms of a real gem.
We would entirely agree with the previous and favourable reviews of Glen Cottage.

Room Tip: We were shown around all the rooms by Jill. If the rest of the rooms are as comfortable as room 6 th...

Firstly must say that we cannot understand the negative review by well-fine. It is obvious that he/she doesn't speak English well, so perhaps they didn't understand Terry and Jill, who are the most delightful and helpful hosts. The rooms and beds are superbly comfortable and well-appointed, with very good bathrooms (we had a tour of the whole house). We certainly had no problems with the soundproofing, sleeping very well with no disturbance from other guests, the hosts, or their 'male chicken' (cockerel)! Glen Cottage is great value for money in a wonderful part of the country. We are returning there for 3 nights in August of this year, hence this late posted review of our stay some time ago.

What am amazing cottage - it is set in the most beautiful grounds and is very peaceful. The hosts Terry and Jill are very hospitable and know the area very well - Terry was born in the cottage! There is wonderful wildlife...peregrin falcons, a kingfisher, cockerel (who isn't a nuisance), blackbirds, wrens... it is so peaceful and the hosts go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They spolit my daughter and let her play on their piano... they even gave her an Easter egg and bunny rabbit. Very sweet indeed... and not forgetting the teddy toast! This is excellent value for money and in a great central position to explore Devon. Thanks Jill and Terry. See you in June!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing - we liked the four poster bed!
