I stayed at Glen Cottage in July 2014, to attend my friend's wedding at nearby Ugbrooke House. I was welcomed by Jill with a lovely smile, who showed me to my bedroom, which immediately felt like home. I enjoyed a lovely siesta with cool air coming in through the window, to refresh myself after the train journey from London. It's a short walk from Glen Cottage into Chudleigh village, where I enjoyed meeting the village characters. I turned in quite early though, there was something about Glen Cottage pulling me back home! The next morning, I enjoyed Jill's delicious breakfast and I relaxed in the lovely garden at Glen Cottage, even doing a few handstands and cartwheels out there, I just felt so happy. Terry called out from the pathway above. 'Can you catch?' he said. 'Yes,' I said. Terry threw me a freshly picked plum and I ate it on the grass and it tasted like heaven, sweet and juicy. I stayed in the garden all morning, enjoying the splash of the fountain on the pond, breathed in and out and thought this is just the perfect antidote to busy London life, I feel restored! So many more kindnesses from Jill and Terry during my stay, fantastic hosts with interesting stories that kept me entertained. It has left me searching to find another reason, and soon, to return to Glen Cottage. Magical.
