This was a second visit to Bowden Farm for us. Last time it was a '1 night treat', this time we made sure we stayed for 3. The setting is beautiful and peaceful, tucked away in the countryside, away from the crowds by the beach at bank holiday. The cream team on arrival was gorgeous, and we made the most... More

The cream tea on arrival and the homemade biscuits in the room are heavenly. Well worth... More

This BnB offers huge rooms beautifully furnished in a lovely restored 17th century farmhouse. The farm is organic and the breakfast reflected the care taken with produce direct from the farm. We had a very comfortable stay here and recommend it highly.

The property is set in 80 acres of organic North Devon farmland, set to pasture & grazed by sheep, cattle & llamas. The accommodation is of a very high standard with lots of lovely touches e.g. fresh flowers, fresh milk, wine glasses & home-baked biscuits all provided in the rooms, white towelling robes in the bathroom. We had a large... More

We had luxury named products in our en suite bathroom, shower gel, handwash and shampoo. We had soft cuddly dressing gowns and white fluffy towels. Bowden farm gave us the best breakfast we have...

This is a lovely bed and breakfast. On arrival we had a cream tea which was lovely, as was breakfast the next morning. Our hosts were very unintrusive and didn't make us feel at all awkward. Our room was spacious and the extra touches, such as fresh milk, wine glasses, heated towels were very nice. Our daughter (age 2) had... More

We stayed here fore 3 nights and had a lovely time. The house / rooms / garden & location were absolutely stunning. Every thing was very clean and comfortable (the bed espcially). The breakfast and homemade afternoon teas were wonderful and delicious. It is a bit isolated so you would definitely need a car.

One small point spoilt things a bit. We stayed for 3 nights and on the first morning left our towels on the floor as it seemed the best place... More
