History Of Our Home

From dairy farm to horse stud

Glencoe Country Bed and Breakfast was built in 1905 by the Newman family and was called Surrey Home. It started off as a dairy farm and over the years, a number of families have grown up in the house.

Glencoe became a B&B in the late 1970s, and was sold again in the late 1980s. The new owners intended to raise and train horses, so a stable and side horse paddocks were built with plans to build an equestrian arena near the barn.

French Influence

Nouvelle cuisine at Glencoe

Glencoe was then sold to a French couple who returned Glencoe to a Bed and Breakfast. Known as Glencoe Rural Retreat, they set up a small intermittent dining experience of French cuisine.

Russell and Irene purchased the property in December 2016 and after six months of maintenance and redesign in the garden, reopened in July 2017 as Glencoe Country Bed & Breakfast.

The Homestead
