From the owner

Glebe Cottage is a 400-year-old, two-bedroom converted farmhouse in beautiful North Devon, which sleeps up to four. Full of character and history, the cottage is fully centrally heated and double glazed to provide you with all the comforts of home including free wi-fi.

Perfect for walking and cycling. There are pottery experiences onsite (at Tarka Pottery) and RHS Rosemoor Gardens is a few minutes drive.

We are dog-friendly, have outdoor space, and local dog walks include the Tarka Trail and Torrington Commons.

About Glebe Cottage:

The delightful slate-floored living area has a wood-burning stove inside the old stone fireplace where crackling timbers will warm you on even the coolest evenings once you return from your day on the beach, cycling the Tarka Trail or being creative in the pottery studio.

A couple of stone steps take you into the kitchen/dining area where you will find all you will need for a comfortable stay.

Upstairs you will find the bathroom and two bedrooms, a double and a twin. We provide enough bedding and towels for the length of your stay. Whether you are with us for one or two weeks or just decide to treat yourselves to a few days away, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

We love dogs and we have plenty of interesting local walks to enjoy. Our ponies, alpacas, sheep, cats, poultry and Roxie, our border collie, are also waiting to meet you.

Things to do nearby:

• Throw a pot on the wheel or make a plaque at our onsite pottery studio,

Tarka Pottery.

• Visit RHS Gardens - with lots of activities and events taking place, it's a

fabulous place to visit for adults and children, any time of the year.

• Cycle the Tarka Trail - you could begin and return to The Puffing Billy

where you can hire bikes and have lunch.

• Go to the beach - Westward Ho! is a well-known local beach about 20

minutes' drive away and we often take our border collie, Roxie, to

Instow Beach for a dog walk about 15 minutes' drive.

• Meeth Quarry Nature Reserve is a 20-minute drive away.

Great Torrington is our local town, a 5-minute drive, with a pannier market and a few shops including a butchers, bakery, cafes, pubs and an M&S convenience store. There's also an electric charging point in town and public commons with a small car boot during the summer.

TARKA POTTERY onsite is an interactive pottery studio, where Jax will teach you how to throw on a potters wheel or you can join in a clay workshop or paint pottery. We offer pottery activities to suit all ages - just ask.
