We stayed at this B&B for a friend's wedding and this was on the list of recommended places nearby. A lovely house, nice accommodation with very friendly owners. Amazing breakfast and overall an enjoyable stay.

Couldn't say enough about this lovely B&B! Visiting family in the area from the States, and would return in an heartbeat! Lovely family, my room was spacious, everything thought of by the hosts. Thoroughly enjoyed the full English breakfast .... all local fare ... what more could you ask for? If you are going to be in the area, this... More

Our room was in the converted outbuilding, excellent all round, decor, clean and comfortable, with a view over the gardens and hills, lovely local bacon and sausage with the english breakfast. Good location for the village and walks.

The family are lovely and the rooms are well made up, clean and comfortable. Our children were able to pat the chickens and collect their freshly-laid eggs, then eat the eggs for breakfast! They also loved cuddling the friendly family dog. Gorgeous views and walks and lovely dinner in nearby village.

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
