Glebe Farmhouse

Escape to our countryside cottage for a North Devon holiday

Welcome to Glebe Cottage

Glebe Cottage is a 400-year-old, two-bedroom converted farmhouse in beautiful North Devon, which sleeps up to four with room for a cot.  Full of character and history, the cottage is fully centrally heated and double glazed to provide you with all the comforts of home including free Wi-Fi. 

Your base to explore North Devon...

Lying in the heart of North Devon countryside, Glebe Cottage is only a short drive from the historic coastal towns of Barnstaple and Bideford with beaches.  Plenty of family friendly attractions for you to enjoy.

Why stay with us?

Families Welcome

Children are very welcome and we have plenty of outdoor space to run around in.  Our pets and livestock are also waiting to meet you! 

A Warm Welcome 

We provide some of our free range eggs, tea, coffee, milk, sugar as well as complimentary toiletries.  Linen and towels are also provided so you don't need to bring your own.

We're dog-friendly too!

We love dogs and Roxie, our border collie, really enjoys having other dogs come to play. There is a private garden area that leads, via a stile, into the meadow where our poultry and livestock roam free.  So if your dog is on a lead around livestock they would be very welcome indeed.  We do ask that dogs aren't allowed to sit on the furniture or go upstairs in the cottage.

Pottery Studio

You can book in for a clay session at Tarka Pottery with Jax or one of the team, for a couple of hours or a couple of days.  The sessions are based around what you'd like to do, hand building or throwing on potters wheels. Have a look at for ideas of what you could do during your stay.

Inside the Cottage

The delightful slate-floored living area has a wood-burning stove inside the old stone fireplace where crackling timbers will warm you on even the coolest evenings once you return from your day on the beach, cycling the Tarka trail or being creative in the Tarka Pottery studio. 

A couple of stone steps take you into the kitchen/dining area where you will find all you will need for a comfortable stay. Electric cooker, fridge/freezer, washer, microwave, DAB radio, crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, table and chairs for 4. Lovely stable door to let in the morning sunshine. 

Upstairs you will find the bathroom and two bedrooms, a double and a twin.  We provide enough bedding and towels for the length of your stay.  Whether you are with us for one or two weeks or just decide to treat yourselves to a special weekend away, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

"The welcome and warmth shown were nothing to do with luck"
