Views of Old Countess Wear

Have you ever wondered where Glasshouse Lane gets its name?

Come along to the Tea Room and see the collection of photos, prints and original paintings of Countess Wear.

Look for the lime kilns by the beach and spot the ‘glasshouses’ – 30m high cones where wine bottles were made and the furnaces were never allowed to cool. From mansions to thatched cottages, see what Countess Wear looked like before we had cars.
