We had a lovely stay with our one year old Labrador. The cottage is spacious with a useful conservatory for drying and feeding dogs. The garden was secure and we had use of a separate paddock. Good walking along bridle paths close to the cottage that pass through managed woodland. Local towns and pubs were all dog friendly and I'm... More

Thank you for writing the review, we are grateful that you took the time to write such a lovely piece about our accommodation. You stayed in The Old Dairy which is a wonderful old stone cottage, it was built around about the 15th Century and is very quirky in its own way, and very cosy. We hope that both people... More

This was our first visit to Bowerland and definitely not the last, already planning next year's visit. We had a 3 night stay in The Annex which was exceptionally well equipped and so comfortable and relaxing. It was great having our own safe garden for the dogs with a lockable gate so we knew they were safe and the icing... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed the Annexe, it is a lovely spot, and so peaceful. It is great that we have the paddock as well, especially for our guests to use - we are very fortunate. The views across Dartmoor are amazing, it is always majestic here, winter or summer. We are already looking forward to seeing you again... More

Just returned home from 4 nights staying in the annexe... the dogs loved it! They were booked in for 2 days doggy day care which they settled into easily, tired themselves out both days and came back with neatly trimmed claws! It was quite a way away though, my fault for not checking. But it did allow us to get... More

Its the first time we've tried this kind of holiday with our 18 month old collie/springer cross - Murphy so we were unsure of what to expect. We stayed in the annex and were surprised at the level of thought and care that had gone into equipping the accommodation over and above the usual facilities. All equipment was top of... More

Many thanks for taking the time to provide this review. We are so pleased you enjoyed our Annexe, perhaps next time you might like to stay in The Old Dairy? This is a lovely olde worlde ground floor cottage apartment and is really suitable for holidays of a minimum of 7 nights. We look forward to seeing Murphy again and... More

We took this holiday with our well behave Cocker Spanial so that our accommodation would be 'dog friendly', and it really was. Bowerland Farm is a few minutes drive from Oakhampton and Dartmoor, and an easy drive to either the north or south coasts of devon. It was a truly restful holiday, we did do a few hours dog training,... More

Didn't know what to expect, never done a doggie activities holiday before. Great location, accommodation and great training facilities. We enjoyed it, the dogs enjoyed it. Learn a lot in the group and 121's classes. Will definitely go back and also recommend friends as well. Pleasantly surprised. Dogs all tired out now!

Just back from a week staying in a The Old Dairy, and loved it. The cottage is well equipped, and very comfortable, and as the weather was quite chilly at night, the wood burner in the living room was fabulous! The garden is fully enclosed with a locking gate, so our dog could be out in the garden and we... More

Stayed in the Annexe for a couple of nights with our 2 cockers. Great for me to be onsite for dog agility training, but also allowed my partner access to excellent cycling country. Even though dog agility training goes on through out the day there is no dog noise! Access to paddock to run dogs was fantastic and gave a... More

Both of these cottages are fabulous, I stayed in the Annexe, albeit for a very short time due to personal circumstances, the welcome and tour was extremely professional, Carole is absolutely lovely. The Annexe was superb, extremely clean more like a 'boutique apartment', lovely little garden. The bed was extremely comfortable, would happily move in there permanently!

Stayed in the annexe for 3 nights with my wife and our two border collies. I was taking part in some agility training courses and the on-site accommodation was perfect for that purpose. It had pretty well everything we needed for a short stay, clean, tidy and the promised equipment and facilities were all present and correct. It was quiet... More
