About Glebe Cottage

Set in a small Cornish village, this converted rectory barn is perfect for a peaceful getaway.

Glebe Cottage sits at the mouth of the Helford River in the pretty village of Mawnan Smith. Once a rectory barn, this romantic old building has masses of character, including a galleried landing that looks down into a beamed open-plan living area. 

Take advantage of your position and walk the short distance to our garden at Glendurgan and its small sheltered beach..  Otherwise enjoy one of the lovely coastal walks around the entrance to the Helford River and out to Rosemullion.

A little further afield is our Godolphin estate. This large atmospheric estate is just 20 miles from the cottage. As a guest at Glebe Cottage, your contribution helps us to maintain vast estates like these for generations to come.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
