Overview

Glen Tor offers 12 comfortable, spacious en-suite flats nestled in the beautiful countryside of North Devon.

Surrounded by luscious green fields and many local attractions, there is always something to do whilst living here. The house is a short level walk from the town centre on a private road, home of the renowned Plough Arts Theatre, local unique shops and health centres.

Great Torrington also home to the famous Dartington Crystal centre and The Royal Horticultural Society’s Garden Rosemoor. We are a short bus ride from the beaches of Westward Ho!, Ilfracombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands which are very popular holiday destinations in the area. These bus routes will also take you past Atlantic Village outlet shopping centre and Barnstaple high street.

Here at Glen Tor we pride ourselves on our comfortable, homely environment in which centre on our residents who get on extremely well and regard each other as extended family. We never use agency staff so you will never see an unfamiliar face, meaning that you will always have company from people familiar to you. All the residents are involved in all aspects of running the house and this helps them to take pride in where they live.

We excel in helping people to retain their independence whilst gently taking the stress out of running their own home. 

Glen Tor is managed by Abbeyfield South West
