The Experience

Set on a hillside with fabulous views over the Coly valley, this late-Georgian vicarage is now a heart-warming B&B. The views will entice you, the hosts will delight you and the house is filled with interesting things. Chuck and Emma spent many years at sea – he a Master Mariner, she a chef – and have filled these big light rooms with cushions, kilims and treasured family pieces. There’s a sitting room for guests, a lovely conservatory with vintage vine, peaceful bedrooms with blissful views and bathrooms that sparkle. All this, two sweet pygmy goats, wildlife beyond the ha-ha and the fabulous coast a hike away.

One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed in. Warm welcome from Chuck and Emma, great rooms, private living room, swimming pool, tennis courts, pet goats, beautiful local walks. Our hosts even arranged for the weather to be perfect.

Emma and Chuck are excellent hosts and the breakfasts superb. I would stay again and recommend this B&B unhesitatingly. The only gripe - towels stayed wet since there was no working towel rail.

David, Cheltenham

Emma and Chuck made us feel very welcome in their beautiful house. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They looked after our Golden Retriever on two days so that we could go walking. ( He has a pulled muscle in his leg and has to rest ). The house is in a very peaceful location and the views are out of this world. The breakfasts were delicious with wonderfully prepared fresh fruit, cereals and yogurt to start and then beautifully cooked full English breakfasts. I cannot recommend Glebe House enough. We had a wonderful holiday.

very scenic, close to coast. Emma's food is wonderful


We stayed to days and nights in Glebe House with Emma and Chuck Guest. The house is situated on a hilltop with a marvelous, almost breathtaking view. The family room on the first floor is very light and comfortable and has a splendid view over Southleigh Valley. The other rooms in the house are also very nice and the heated swimming pool in the garden was a hit for our children. Emma and Chuck are very nice, warm and friendly people, breakfast is good, and Glebe House is a very recommendable place to stay with your family.


We had the most amazing time at Glebe House. Emma and Chuck are the most fantastic hosts and we were made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. Most welcome tea was served on arrival with delicious cake, the rooms were wonderfully comfortable, and the views were amazing. Dinner cooked by Emma on Friday night was really delicious, and very deftly served by Chuck. We had drinks and canapes in the drawing room and all was delicious. Breakfast each morning was such a treat, the best poached eggs I have ever had. We were show all the local walks. Our hosts shared local knowledge. Fantasti


We had such a wonderful 2 nights at Glebe House and will definitely be returning again soon. Our 3 children were made so welcome and allowed to explore and make use of all the facilities and felt very at home here. The view is stunning, the room beautiful and very comfortable and the warm welcome and kind hospitality of the Guests made our stay. It was fantastic to stay somewhere so beautiful yet welcoming to us all as a family. We are eager to return soon for another few days away from home and to explore more of the enchanting costal villages nearby. We highly recommend Glebe House
