Brilliant house. Relaxed atmosphere. Great house keeper!

  • 5 of 5

A multi generational Christmas and birthday get together. Ages from 1.5yra to 95yrs! Nothing was too much trouble. A ground floor room was adapted for our elderly Mum. Extra bed and cot put into a master bedroom to accommodate a whole young family. I really cannot recommend The Glebe House strongly enough. Such a beautiful home without all the rules and regulations one often encounters with holiday rentals. The outdoor pool was warm enough to use over the Christmas period as was the hot tub! The outdoor fireplace was welcomed! All the rooms had interesting pictures and memorabilia to amuse and speculate. As a whole, and as a family we look forward to spending a summer at The Glebe House, it must be fabulous when the sun shines! Cannot think of anything negative at all.

Beautiful, tasteful, comfortable home in gorgeous setting, second visit as wonderful as the first!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at the Glebe House - we enjoyed it so much the first time that we knew we wanted to come back and we were certainly not disappointed! The house is luxurious and spacious, and beautifully designed - even better than the photos. The grounds are magnificent, the pool is lovely and warm, the pool house is fantastic, we love the lawn and we made use of every area of the property. Everything has been thought of and there is plenty to do for all ages, rain or shine. It is a great setting for family gatherings or visits with friends. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home again, we had a wonderful time!

Gorgeous, tasteful, relaxing and welcoming house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two delightful weeks in Glebe House with our two young children (aged 3 and 1). Other extended family visited and stayed with us during that time. The house and grounds are simply beautiful - spacious, thoughtfully and stylishly decorated, with every amenity you can think of and child-friendly too. If anything it was better than the photos suggest! The facilities are incredible and the country setting gorgeous and relaxing, making for a great family holiday for all ages!

The house is very clean, well-maintained and luxurious, with stylish reception rooms, a spacious kitchen, comfortable bathrooms and nicely made up bedrooms throughout. The grounds are magnificent - the outdoor swimming pool is large and heated with a beautiful backdrop; the children's play area is great (our son adored the boat sand-pit, and also liked visiting the neighbouring horses across the field!); and there is also a well maintained tennis court, kitchen garden and beautiful main lawn. The pool-house (complete with shower, gym, dining area and large TV) is also fantastic!

The owner Claire was very helpful and welcoming, making us feel at home and providing useful information about the local area, places to visit etc. The family's housekeeper was also extremely helpful.

We had a truly fantastic stay at Glebe House and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a luxurious country property to rent. We have every intention of visiting again ourselves!

Lovely spacious, well equipped, relaxing house for a family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The house is big, beautifully decorated, comfortable and full of places for people to get together - especially the kitchen and playroom - or find some peace and quiet. It's even better than the photos suggest. The children in our party were excited to explore everything, even indoors! The garden and grounds are lovely and well looked after, and the stunning heated pool was a real treat. The owner was very helpful as we planned our visit, and provided everything we needed and more. We received a warm welcome and efficient housekeeping help during our stay, too. We all decided we'd love to come back - maybe when the days are longer - and explore the many nearby trails on bike and foot.
