We had to pleasure of staying in in this lovely B&B for 2 nights, it was faultless throughout our stay Nicky and Peter were very hospitable, we felt at home all through our stay, we enjoyed the quietness, our room was very comfortable with a nice chair to sit next to a window to enjoy the garden views.

Lower House is a really special place and is all you could wish for (and more) in a B & B. Nicky and Pete are very welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts and their house is full of wonderful furniture, fabrics, pictures, china, books and much much more! Absolutely delightful. Our room was fascinating and quirky with it's oak wall and... More

There's little that can be added to all the other great comments - just to say they are all true. The rooms are all wonky angles and beautiful exposed oak, decorated with unexpected objects and sumptuous fabrics; the archetypal country cottage, but with lovely comfy beds and bed clothes, up-to-the-minute plumbing and bathrooms, and not a speck of dust to...

Our only complaint about Lower House is why nobody told us about it before! We felt thoroughly spoiled from the moment we arrived. Our room was a delight, with it's own cosy sitting room overlooking Pete and Nicky's amazing garden, and into the woods beyond. Throughout the weekend we felt we were staying in the welcoming home of friends, our... More

Over a pretty bridge from Cusop Dingle, we entered into the most magical of gardens .... We were greeted at Lower House by Nicky and Pete Daw, along with the most marvellous lemon cake! On arrival and during our stay their unobtrusive attention to our comfort was constant and wonderfully sincere, it almost immediately felt like we had come to... More

It would be difficult to praise this place and its owners, Nicky and Pete Daw, too highly. From the personal greeting we received from the two of them to the luxuriant warmth of the main room's fireplace to the delicious—and generous—breakfasts, our stay here was a once-in-a-lifetime delight—like spending time in a richly detailed English novel. We stayed in the... More

Nestled in picture perfect gardens, next to a bubbling stream, with its own wood-burning stove, the Plas Bach self-catering lodge in the grounds of Lower House is a truly special place. Owners Pete and Nicky have created a hide-away that manages to be both cosy and stylish - immaculately clean, well equipped, and given numerous little extra touches that made... More

We have just come back from (our first) 4 excellent nights in Plas Bach - the self catering accommodation set in the extensive gardens of Lower House and run by Pete and Nicky Daw. If you want a quiet (apart from the sound of the stream that runs nearby and the occasional owl at night), cosy, place for two, then... More

We're barely home after our third stay in Plas Bach and have already planned our next two visits! It's a really special time of year to stay because the autumn colours in Nicky's beautiful garden and the surrounding countryside are magnificent. A stomp across the fields into lovely Hay, a wander around the shops, lunch in Booth's and then a... More

This was our second visit to Lower House and this time we took two friends to share the experience! We took the Oak and Map rooms which meant we got to share the cosy sitting room upstairs as well as being able to totally chill in front of the log fire in the downstairs room. Lower House is simply the... More
