Glebe house is situated in one of the most historic areas of the village. Grade II listed and believed to date to the 17th century, the cottage is crammed with period detail, including beamed ceilings and multi paned casement windows, and could be described as the perfect St Mawes fisherman's cottage. The cottage is unusual in the generous family accommodation offered and the current owners have extensively improved the property whilst maximising the living, bedroom and storage space to offer flexible living accommodation. Modern comforts include under floor heating on the ground floor and gas supplied stove in the kitchen and sitting room.
