Beautiful wedding venue

Glebe house cottages is a beautiful wedding venue that is very reasonably priced. We were able to alter their package to our numbers and include personalised touches. The other great thing is that there were no hidden costs like a lot of venues!

We went for Glebe as we wanted somewhere where we could use the whole weekend for the wedding. We paid the the cottage accommodation Friday-Monday which meant we could have a BBQ and meet all of our family as they arrived on the Friday and that on Sunday we could have chilled day, lounging in the pool, after the wedding. A lot of other venues require you to be out by 10am on Sunday whereas Glebe allowed us to enjoy the whole weekend with all al our family and friends staying too!

In addition to the accommodation being on site, the whole wedding itself takes place on site. There are multiple areas where you can get married and then there are areas for games and the marquee for the breakfast and reception. On the day, Glebe were flexible and we were able to get married outside by the pond and they helped us move all of the ceremony chairs outside which was lovely. The grounds are also absolutely stunning so make for beautiful wedding photos.

The caterers that Glebe use are phenomenal. We were able to design our own wedding menu with meat and vegetarian options whereas other venues charge extra for this and usually offer set menus only. The quality of the food was incredible.

The team were generally very responsive and always helpful to make our wedding personalised and Glebe does not feel like a 'wedding factory' like some other venues do!

We are super grateful for the whole team at Glebe for giving us the wedding we dreamed of. If you are looking for a venue that is beautiful, flexible, personal, all in one place, has accommodation, can be hired all weekend and is also dog friendly, then Glebe is the place for you!

Perfect choice 😍 Amazing venue, and Jay & Sarah were brilliant

Absolutely amazing!! We had wanted a combination of formal and relaxed for our day, and stress free which is *exactly* what we got. With accommodation for 36 and ability to have the venue day before and day after. The venue itself is stunning, the set up was seamless, and even with torrential downpour 140 of us were dry and not affected - the organisation in the run up was clear, but not pushy. Any queries were answered quickly, and solutions provided. Swimming pool and tennis courts well used both before and after! Jay, Sarah and family could not have been any more accommodating, welcoming and reassuring. Perfect celebration venue, with almost complete freedom to do as you wish - can choose your own vendors with as much or little input/advice as you like. Stunning - thank you for the most magic few days 🥰🥰

Reasonable but needs attention

I stayed at glebe house cottages for my daughters wedding .
The cottages were nice , a bit tired but nice . There was plenty of room for the 3 of us that stayed in 1 cottage .
The setting is great , I can’t fault that .
I can fault the state of the mattresses though . Mine were covered in old urine stains , there had been no attempt to clean them they had dark brown stains . When I complained to Jay about this I was told they are only stains , I was strange for looking at the mattress , mattresses last 8 years and that there was mattress protectors on the bed . I’ve seen cleaner mattresses on the street . They put another mattress protector on and a clean sheet , as the last one was stained .
They thought that was adequate . I disinfected the mattress put on the protector, sheet and folded the quilt in half to lay on . I still didn’t feel comfortable knowing what I was laying on . I left it at that as I didn’t want to ruin my daughters wedding.

Flexible wedding venue, with accommodation onsite.

Jay and his family were fantastic hosts for our wedding last weekend. On the run up to the wedding and on the weekend itself they were so helpful and made our special day, nothing was too much trouble.
Glebe house and cottages is a beautiful venue and allows accommodation for some guests onsite. We chose this venue due to being able to host the wedding over two days and having family onsite. They were flexible in the order of our plans and what we wanted to do and open to suggestions. The venue has beautiful gardens and allowed us to have a relaxed wedding party. Dancing under the stars was something we shall never forget. Would highly recommend this venue.

Beyond Expectation.

My bride and I loved the aesthetic of the venue. Upon first visit all the way up to the morning after our wedding day was infinitely made better, easier, and more rewarding thanks to our hosts.
Jay and Sarah quelled any worries and confusion we had leading up and their service on the day was flawless and seemingly effortless in causing our day to run smoothly.
If you are looking for a beautiful venue, outstanding service, and someone who will show attention and care to your wedding as though it is their own then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Thank you so much.

Beautiful and relaxed

We wanted a beautiful venue with a relaxed environment we could enjoy without sharing the space of people who weren’t apart of the wedding party to keep it as personal as possible and that’s exactly what we got. The inclusive wine tasting we had the January before the big day was lovely, the option for guests to camp free of charge the night of the wedding was a great addition that our guests loved, the cottages are wonderful and we had a lot of use of the fire pit! Jay and Sarah are excellent hosts who make you feel welcome the moment you arrive and we couldn’t be happier with the experience as a whole, Glebe House really is a beautiful place and we’re so happy it’s where we said I Do.

Beautiful venue and great to plan with

We got married at Glebe House Cottages in August 2023. It was an incredible day, matched with incredible service and a breeze to book and plan.

The venue looks great in photos, but is far better in real life! Every corner you turn it just gets better.

The location is also perfect, we both went for a dip in the sea the morning of the wedding, and all our guests that were not staying on site had plenty of options for accommodation in Bude (+ a few camped on site as well!)

We booked out the entire place and had all our friends and family come back the day after for pasties, coffee, and a dip in the pool. It was a lovely way to wrap up such a memorable weekend.

Jay was AWESOME. He was so helpful and friendly throughout the planning process and everything on the day went to plan and happened smoothly without us needing to be involved. Where we wanted things to be personal for us, he was flexible in helping us make it happen, and where we didn’t want to think about the extra details, he just made it happen in the background.

One of our favourite parts of the whole process was spending a weekend at Glebe house cottages ahead of the wedding and trying all the food and wine. A very memorable weekend.

The best experience from start to finish.

Glebe house cottages was and is an absolute dream.

After 2 years of failed wedding attempts due to covid and awful suppliers, we stumbled upon Glebe house Cottages,and we are just so glad we did.

Not only was our day perfect, our weekend perfect, but the build up, wine tasting, beer festival and everything about the way we corresponded with the venue was.

I absolutely reccomend, they and the venue truly made our wedding perfect and we will absolutely be back to celebrate for years to come.

Jay, Sarah and their parents run an amazing business, they really look after you and Glebe House is great, book your wedding there it won't disappoint.

Perfect hosts and a perfect venue

I couldn’t recommend this venue enough to anyone who is looking for a venue in the country side. Jay and Sarah who run this fabulous new business are super friendly and very helpful the whole way up to the big day. They have soo much to offer and are always there for any questions or help you may need. This is the perfect location if your wanting a weekend away with the family and guests as they also offer accommodation for 30+ guests. We wish them all the best in the future.

Brilliant, very helpful and organized!

We had our wedding at Glebe House Cottages on the 7th May, the whole experience from our first show around where we were greeted with some bubbly in the garden to the wedding day where Jay, Sarah and all the staff worked tirelessly was just brilliant. Jay and Sarah helped us make our day exactly how we had pictured it, they were so organized and nothing seemed like too much trouble. The venue is truly beautiful and the large open spaces give you the freedom to have whatever style wedding day you want, with plenty of beautiful tucked away spots in the gardens too which are perfect for pictures, and for family and friends to walk around and explore. Our friends and family were blown away by the venue, it certainly has the wow factor! Thank you so much Glebe House for such a special weekend and wedding day, we couldn’t have asked for better!
