From the warm and friendly welcome to an equally warm and friendly cheerio, our stay at Gowanbank House did not disappoint. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and hearty breakfast added to the relaxed atmosphere. Willie and Isabel are warm and welcoming people and that's reflected in Gowanbanks relaxed atmosphere.

Warm welcome, friendly helpful advice, comfortable rooms, good sleep and hearty breakfast set us up for each day. Set in beautiful grounds, with local walks to park and country estate, where amongst other wildlife, a family of wild pigs can be seen.

Isabel and Willie are a delightful couple who could not have made us more welcome. The rooms were large and very well furnished and the breakfast was wonderful. We would certainly... More
