We recently travelled to Leckhampstead for our friends 70th birthday surprise. His daughter booked us in Bow River bed and breakfast for the 1 night. What a beautiful place and it was so peaceful. The owner an Australian lady called Roma was lovely and so was her son in law(?). We were shown to the Antique Brass room and it... More

We really loved our time here with Roma who is really a gracious and helpful host in a peaceful and beautiful setting. Many thanks Roma and for the Vegamite :-)) to make us feel at home. Important as well: spacious, spotlessly clean room with generous bathroom with bathtub. Great bed for a good night sleep. State of the art house... More

We came back today from this lovely B&B. We stayed there two nights while my husband and myself were building a fence for my daughters back garden. All I can say is if you want somewhere that is quiet in lovely surroundings you don't need to look any further.I originally booked because of the ratings on Trip Advisor and we... More

I stayed 3 night, for business trip. A perfect place with a perfect host in Roma. Fab local pubs and great local knowledge from Roma. Very peaceful and quiet, with full use of downstairs. Could not recommend enough if you're planning a trip down this part of the country

Stayed at this lovely 5 Star B&B just the one night en-route to pick up a cruise from Southampton. Hostess Roma greeted us warmly and continued her friendly, helpful but discreet approach throughout the entirety of our all too brief stay. The welcome tea, coffee and biscuits served in the Guest Sitting Room were most appreciated after our long drive... More

In planning a family vacation, I had the good fortune of finding Bow River House. There were 7 traveling in my party - my family (2 adults, 2 children ages 8 and 11), my parents, and my sister. We stayed one night on our way to Highclere Castle. Roma greeted us warmly when we arrived at Bow River House. The... More

We spent four marvelous nights at Bow River House while visiting Newbury, Bampton and, of course, Highclere castle. Our room, like the rest of the house, was spotless and Roma's warm hospitality went beyond anything one would ever expect. The setting with horses, stables, rolling fields and a 19th century church next door is idyllic. There is a friendly pub... More

This was my first return to Bow River House since August 2012 and it was every bit as good as the previous stay. Relaxed country setting in modern detached house with separate sitting room / breakfast room for guests to relax away from their bedroom. There is a fridge in this sitting room where fresh milk is available for drinks... More

I had a wonderful stay with Roma at Bow River House - surroundings were simply beautiful in a setting I love as I missed my own horses in Australia whilst away on vacation in UK. Everyone remarks on what a perfect hostess Roma is and it is absolutely true - there when you need her and discreetly in the background... More

My fiancé and I stayed at Bow river as a stop over before visiting nearby Highclere castle the following day. We had a wonderful relaxing stay for the night. The house is in a beautiful setting with lots of lovely surrounding countryside including trails and foot paths that you can walk and the area is very peaceful. The room was... More
