  • "Lovely area and quite."

    the cottage was cosy and clean. the kitchen cupboards was fill up with too much plates and chine. so we had no room for our tins of food and cereal for the week. and the fridge freezer was fill up with the owners frozen food. no pegs with the washing machine the kitchen needs a sort out and it be lovely.

    Thank you for your feedback. I like to provide a good selection of china and glassware to cover the needs of all guests. There is a large larder fridge with 380 litre capacity for food with separate freezer with the top section free of the freezer available for guests' use. I am only too happy to provide guests with any additional items needed but please do ask! Pegs and egg cups are now in situ! Hope you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Property Owner

  • "Lovely quiet cottage, owner made us feel very welcome."

    Beds were comfy and the cottage was clean overall. It would have benefitted us to have something outside like a washing line or airer to dry wetsuits etc but this isn’t going to affect to everyone and is a minor point. The cottage would benefit greatly to have access to a hoover just to keep on top of the hair situation on a daily basis if you’re bringing your dogs with you. Overall we had a lovely stay at Glebe Cottage and would return. If you are looking for some no frills peace and quiet in lovely rural surroundings this could be right up your street.

    So glad that you had an enjoyable and comfy stay. A clothes airer and washing line is available for guests upon request. It was extremely good of you to leave the cottage so clean and tidy. I have now provided a vacuum for those guests who wish to use it during their stay! Hope to see you both and Ted again! Property Owner

The property

Sheepwash 2.6 miles.

Nestled in the serene countryside surrounding the Devonshire village of Sheepwash rests this charming, two-bedroom holiday home, Glebe Farm Cottage.

With off-road parking, well-laid out, traditional interiors, and superb proximity to the nearby Dartmoor National Park, this tasteful property welcomes a family of four and their furry companions for a self-catered, rural escape to the heart of Devon.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself at home in your new lodgings by setting up in the well-equipped kitchen, where you will find everything you need to prepare a delicious, home-cooked feast for the whole group to savour at the dining table or alfresco in the enclosed rear garden during the warmer months.

In the evenings, gather in the sitting room with your loved ones to enjoy a film on the Smart TV before indulging in a rejuvenating bath on your way to retiring for a well-earned sleep in one of two, plush bedrooms.

After you've taken the dogs out for a run in the adjacent rear paddock, take time to venture out and explore your local area by stopping into the nearby village of Sheepwash, where you can stock up on supplies at the Sheepwash Community Shop & Post Office before settling down for a pub lunch at The Half Moon Inn.

Be sure to spend time traversing the many scenic walkways of the Halsdon Nature Reserve on your way to Great Torrington, which is a brief car journey away, and home to the Great Torrington Museum, whilst the tranquil spot of RHS Garden Rosemoor lies just a short distance outside of town.

Your trip to Devon would be incomplete without spending time in the Dartmoor National Park, which is home to a plethora of amazing landmarks, such as the Sittaford Stone Circle, the Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park, Wistman's Wood nature reserve, and the National Trust spot of Hembury and Holne Woods - all are worth your time whilst visiting the region.

Whatever you choose to do during your next stay in Devon, be sure to do it from the charming base of Glebe Farm Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Great Torrington 9 miles; Okehampton 12 miles; Bideford 16 miles; Bude 20 miles.

Sheepwash village is set in the peaceful Torridge Valley in Devon. The village offers a shop and a friendly traditional pub set in the village square, serving good food and locally brewed ales. Sheepwash is ideal for walkers and country lovers, being located in the heart of Ruby Trail Country and within easy reach of the Tarka Trail or the coast. Stroll along the River Torridge where you are more than likely to spot an otter family and maybe a Kingfisher or two. There are many places of interest in the surrounding area, including the coastal towns of Bude, Clovelly, Bideford and Westward Ho!, where you will find traditional seaside activities, surfing and the South West coastal footpath. Dartmoor is within 20 minutes’ drive, as is the RHS Rosemoor at Great Torrington and several National Trust properties, and a good variety of visitor attractions, ideal for families or couples, such as the Big Sheep at Bideford, Trethorne Leisure Farm at Launceston, the Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhampstead, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are all within reach.
