• Rooms

    Each of the nine bedrooms at Glazebrook House are individually designed and decorated. Inspiration is drawn from Alice and Wonderland, and the décor is as quirky as you may expect. Mini dollhouses hang above the bed in one, while in another you’ll sleep beneath two mirrors made from burnished aircraft engines. The beds are no less impressive; the twin room is home to two four-poster beds. Bathrooms are lavish, with very unique 3D-effect tiling and statement pieces ranging from standalone tubs or showers large enough for two, depending on the room.

  • Overview

    With just nine bedrooms, an acclaimed restaurant and a playful décor, Glazebrook House is a seriously stylish boutique hotel nestled on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. The country manor house, with foundations dating back to 1650, might look like the placid retreat of a rural squire, but within it’s a very different story. Brooding black walls are the perfect backdrop for a cornucopia of curios, from an emu skeleton to a collection of antique pipes and other knick-knacks. It’s a very modern update on the antiquarian ‘cabinet of curiosities’ and the collections sit perfectly alongside original features of the manor house, such as a beautifully tiled 19th-century fireplace depicting the 1649 beheading of the Duke of Hamilton.

    The quirky theme extends to the hotel’s nine bedrooms, each of which are inspired by a character from Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland. The hotel bar is more ‘speakeasy-chic’ with plush sofas of white leather and a red-topped counter, and the perfect place for a sophisticated tipple before a meal at Masterchef  quarterfinalist Ben Palmer’s restaurant. With the natural splendour of the South Devon countryside right on your doorstep, Glazebrook is the perfect retreat for those looking for a rural getaway with a difference.


    The hotel is perfect for those who want to explore Dartmoor and the surrounding countryside. Take a stroll along the picturesque brook from which the hotel takes its name, which leads through charming woods and the haunting remains of a 19th-century viaduct built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, which stand among the leaves like vine-covered colossi.

    Close by you’ll find the atmospheric open stretches of Dartmoor, made famous by the classic tale Hound of the Baskervilles. A short drive will bring you to the market towns of Modbury and Mothecombe, and the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is further afield, perfect for a day-trip.


    The hotel restaurant has a seasonal menu championing the produce of the surrounding area, with every ingredient sourced from within fifty miles of the hotel. The buffet breakfast is excellent, which classic favourites such as a Full English, as well as trendy treats such as chilli avocado and American pancakes.

    Dinners are a delight, with award-winning chef Ben Palmer creating original dishes that pay homage to the rich culinary culture of Devon’s hills and coasts. Foodies should certainly opt for the  tasting menu for an experience every bit as imaginative and original as the hotel itself, with dishes ranging from goats curd mousse to pan fried smoked mackerel with an Earl Grey gel.
