Glebe House Cottages
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have recently returned from a weeks holiday staying in The Mews cottage. There were 4 people in our party (plus a dog) including a 6 year old boy, an 84 year old granny! The accommodation was a very high standard and very clean and well presented. We all loved the fact that the cottages were located in a quiet area but that there was still loads to do and is Not too far from the beach and town at Bude. It was paradise for an active 6 year old boy! The outdoor swimming pool was fantastic, especially as it is heated. We made use of all the facilities, play area, swimming pool, tennis court, trampoline and games room. The owners are lovely people and are very welcoming and try their best to make your stay perfect. Keep up the good work Alison and Michael! We are already looking forward to returning. If you are looking for top class accommodation, perfect hosts, lovely grounds, excellent facilities in beautiful surroundings, don't hesitate to make a booking at Glebe House Cottages.

Well where do you start when there's so many nice things to say?!
We booked "Granary" for our party of six (three girls of 10yrs, 8yrs and 5yrs, mum, dad and granny). The cottage was nicely appointed, very clean and generally lovely. The children soon made the most of the kids play area which was well equipped to keep them entertained and we all loved the pool!
Another nice surprise was the cellar bar and evening bon-ami (after a couple of glasses of vino!)...but what really made the holiday so special and prompted me to write this review (I wouldn't normally bother with such things!) were the owners who really treated guests as good friends and went the extra mile in every possible way to make our stay fantastic!

We booked the 'Little Barn' for a week, and were very, very pleased with the accommodation. Little Barn sleeps 6, although there was only 4 of us, so we didn't use the smaller mezzanine bedroom. Both rooms were clean, with clean towels and bedding. The living/ktichen area was an ample size for the 4 of us, and was very clean, plus we had a dishwasher, which was a bonus! The heated outdoor pool was a treat and was a tolerable temperature even with the limited sunshine! We made good use of the tennis court, and tennis rackets and balls were provided for us to use.

Alison and Michael (the owners) were very helpful and pleasent throughout our stay (even when I lost a tennis ball!). More than happy to help at all times, and provided some good restaurants to try around the area. You can also order fresh made bread, croissants and pain au chocolat (which we did......several times) which were delicious, and very reasonably priced.

The location was great for us, as we were attending a wedding in Whitstone, but we also found it a great base for getting around Devon/Cornwall. It's a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere around the complex, with Ruben and Blake the dogs happy to wander about and say hello.

I would highly recommend this accommodation if you're planning a trip to Devon/Cornwall. Great if you're friends or have a family.

We were visiting friends from London who rented this place so we could all spend a few days in the country. There were two small boys in our group, and it was perfect for them--a large yard to run around in, tennis courts, a little climbing wall and other amusements. We stayed in "Little Barn." The living room/kitchen was a very comfortable hang out for all of us, bedrooms were large enough and, being in the country, it was quiet. There was a loft for the boys. Owners Alison and Michael couldn't be more welcoming, and we enjoyed spending a little time with them. It was a perfect little break from the big city.

Stayed a week in Poacher Cottage with 5 kids including our disabled son. Wonderful cottages and facilities and the most friendly and accomodating owners we have ever found. They and their children are a delight and I would thoroughly recommend staying there. Great swimming pool, tennis court and adventure playground and swings. Lovely and well kept gardens. One gripe and that is that I do expect a serviceable and dedicated internet connection at every place I stay. I know Michael was struggling to fix this with his usual good humour, and I am sure next time it will be in place.

We have just returned from a lovely week staying in the 'Old Stables' cottage. The cottage was immaculate, cosy and very homely. Alison and Micheal have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay as perfect as possible. The freshly baked bread and croissants in the morning were to die for! what a lovely touch. Also meeting other guests in the 'Bar' in the evening was nice.
The grounds were great for our dog Dylan to explore, unfortunately we couldnt sample the beautiful heated pool as the weather wasnt the best.
Alison and Micheal were the perfect hosts, very warm and friendly and we cant wait to return. We will be recommending the cottages to all our friends.
