Opening in Spring 2021, Glebe is a unique Georgian house and former family home with beautiful architectural qualities and thoughtful design.

With 5 bedrooms and a self contained annexe, the house is spacious enough for guests to find their own little nook within the house. There’s plenty of opportunity to relax with two inviting living areas with fireplaces perfect for reading or playing a game.

There are three comfortable separate dining areas suitable for both small and larger groups, with glorious views and unique original art. Guests enter through the garden room at the front of the house which stays warm all year round and has uninterrupted views down the spectacular Coly Valley.

Set in 15 acres / 7 hectares, with a large mature garden and kitchen garden and growing area. The gardens, outdoor heated swimming pool, and tennis court are available for your enjoyment. We are lucky enough to be situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and Glebe is in a unique position overlooking the rolling hills of the Coly Valley and just 3 miles from the sea.

A 4-course dining option is available from Thursday - Sunday which is a fixed menu for £48 per head and a more casual 'simple supper' offering available every day for £15 per head.

We also offer picnic backpack with a selection of bread, cured meats and pickles from the charcuterie room and bakery at £15 per head.


Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Glebe is lucky enough to have both hilltops and headlands on her doorstep. Step outside and you will be pleasantly rewarded by the richly diverse East Devon countryside, an area largely unspoiled and off the well trodden track.

Only 3 miles down the road is the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site with its terracotta and cream colored cliffs that give way to remote under-cliff beaches on a long untamed coastline. From here you can take a picnic and explore sections of the famous South West Coastal Path. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a boat out and try mackerel fishing or snorkel low reefs and rock pools to see crabs and starfish off picturesque fishing villages Beer and Branscombe.

Inland, roam through the ancient woodlands and marvel at medieval hill-forts. Find the largest tree in the southwest in Shute woods and explore majestic forests in the Iron Age hillfort Blackbury Camp.

On a rainy day, have a potter around seaside town of Lyme Regis, with excellent restaurants, galleries and independent craft shops to while away an afternoon.

There is a reason that they say ‘Devon is heaven’ and we look forward to showing you why.


"We stayed for 3 nights. The location is fantastic with stunning views. The hosts were very friendly and extremely helpful. We had dinner on one evening which was delicious and regretted not having dinner on each of our three evenings."
