Hello, our names are Julian, Ali & Alex Rand and we live here and run Glebe Hall Cottages as a family business nestled in the beautiful countryside on the Lizard Peninsula. We used to live in the 'rat race' up in Berkshire and decided to make a break for the countryside and start a new life in Cornwall 14 years ago. Since buying Glebe Hall we have made it our job to continually improve facilities and work hard to make sure everything is here for our guests to enjoy. As well as working hard with the property, we also have time for our son, who always enjoys meeting new children each year and welcoming them to Glebe Hall. We like to think that we are friendly, but not invasive and respect our guests privacy. We are on hand if needed but generally leave everyone to come and go as they please. Julian's hat is 'Accounts and Maintenance' and Ali's is 'Front of House and House Keeping'. We have a great team helping us on the busy change over days and try our upmost to present the cottages in a clean and tidy manor. We always hope that if there were anything our guests need, they can approach us. Please read our guests comments to see for yourselves! We hope you enjoy looking at our website and hope that we can accommodate you at some point in the future.
We care about our community and the area in which we live. Julian is chair of governors at our local village school and is involved with many local community projects past and present. Recently, Julian was honoured with an MBE for services to the communities of Helston and Mawgan in the 2014 Queens Birthday Honours List and you can see pictures of his investiture with Ali in the photo gallery.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Ali & Julian Rand MBE
