Glenthorne was built for Revd W S Hallaiday in 1829-30 "in a wonderfully sheltered cove far below the Lynton-Porlock road and reached on a private road with serpentines as daring as in the Alps". The house is in a neo-Tudor style (2).
The setting of the house is topographically striking and its immediate landscape and grounds are complemented by a number of architectural features. These include an ice house (Somerset SMR No 33868); "The Towers" gatehouse, sundial, lodge, gate piers, "Sisters" fountain, game larder and courtyard walling, garden terrace walling, and coach house (respectively Devon SMR Nos: SS 74 NE 611, 612, 613, 613.1, 617, 617.1, 617.2,) (3-4).
