A wonderful welcome from the host, and the window of the room looked out over a beautiful garden and wonderful hillside views. The room was comfortable and pleasantly furnished, and I slept well, with the pleasant morning chorus of birds providing a wonderful soundtrack once I'd woken. A great choice of options for a traditional cooked breakfast, and should I... More

I stayed at the Bowens B&B for one night to avoid the stress of a long drive before an interview locally. I just wanted a nice quiet night to prepare for my meeting, but my short stay was so much more than that. I had such a warm welcome from the family. My room was a delight, so well appointed... More

First off, the village of Fownhope is so charming that I kept expecting a dead body to turn up. That's because most of my exposure to villages as charming as Fownhope has been through BBC detective shows. But I digress. The room was comfortable and well appointed, the hosts were friendly and efficient. It's a great place. I echo the... More

We stayed at The Bowens for a wedding in one of the very comfortable courtyard rooms. There is everything that you could possibly need plus an excellent breakfast with local produce. Suffice to say that the pork sausages were the best I have ever tasted! If you're really lucky you may get to throw a ball for Bella the Labrador... More

We have just returned from a lovely stay at the Bowens where we had a quiet, peaceful courtyard room. It was very spacious and extremely comfortable with a well equipped bathroom. The grounds are delightful with plenty of places to sit and relax. We were very well looked after and enjoyed a delicious breakfast every morning. It is a great... More

There are few words to describe the Bowens. We came for several days and stayed in the cottage. The Innkeepers Claire and Kevin are truly wonderful and kind.
