Glebe House Cottages

These cottages are set in a beautiful countryside location amongst five acres of a Georgian house estate only 6 miles from Bude and the popular surfing beach at Widemouth Bay in the village of Bridgerule. Perfect for family holidays or for anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing break, this collection of cottages, all with individual character from stone walls, old wooden beams and studded doors, offer quality accommodation in an idyllic setting all year round. With a selection of cottages offering a variety of sleeping arrangements there will be a holiday home to suit everyone. For larger families or big groups of friends you can book two of the cottages that can easily be linked together. No matter what time of year you will find a quiet spot to relax amongst the beautiful formal gardens or in contrast the delightful woodland area. For the more active a heated outdoor swimming pool with sunbathing area and all weather tennis court are both available free of charge. With a spacious play area for the children and tranquil woodland walks for dog owners, there really is something for everybody here. Evenings can be spent in the old communal courtyard, sat around the firepit or in the cosy cellar bar which opens at times to suit you! For alfresco dining, a designated barbecue and picnic area is situated close to all the cottages, whilst fresh bread, croissants and pain au chocolat can be delivered to your door each day; just put your order in the day before with the charming owners. Bude has been voted the top UK coastal resort in the British Travel Awards and the stunning world-renowned South West Coast Path is within a short drive. A holiday or short break spent in one of the superb Glebe House Cottages will be one to remember for many years to come.

About the location


Holsworthy 5.5 miles; Bude 6 miles; Widemouth Bay 6.5 miles; Tintagel 21.3 miles.

This delightful village is situated across the River Tamar and offers a pub which serves real ales and a children’s play area. This is a fantastic base for exploring the surrounding area with some lovely walking and cycling opportunities. Nearby Holsworthy has much to offer, including a swimming pool, tennis court and splendid park with bowling green. The town centre boasts a varied selection of traditional shops, pubs and cafés, based around the market square. Further afield is the popular coastal town of Bude which has something for everyone; great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rockpools for investigating at low tide and cafes to watch it all from. For days out, take the coast road north to see the lonely lighthouse above the sea at Hartland Point or walk or ride a donkey down the steep and cobbled village street (no cars allowed) of beautiful Clovelly to the harbour and the pub far below. Follow the coast in the other direction and there's the little cove of Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, Doc Martin's Port Wenn at Port Isaac and yet more great surfing beaches at Polzeath.
