On the next corner, take the left turn into Old Beer Road. Follow the road towards Seaton Hole Beach. At the triangle just before the cafe, take a right and the entrance to The Glen will be found on the right hand side.
The Glen is believed to have been built in the 19th Century and used as offices for the Royal Navy until the mid '90's when it was converted into 9 apartments. In approximately 2016, another floor, and three apartments were added to the property with the building benefitting from a new pitched, tiled roof and water main .
