5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Myself my wife, son & granddaugther stayed at Bowens for two nights.My son & myself stayed in the courtyard-my wife & granddaughter in the main house.The courtyard accomodation is basic but I gather this is used by fishermen-us.
The main house room that the ladies stayed in was really nice & they were very pleased with it.
The breakfast is really tasty, and you can take it early ,as us fishermen did.
The owners are really nice people and we were made more than welcome.
The Green Man just down the road is a lovely place to eat, if a little expensive-but worth the
money.
Overall we were very happy with our stay,and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Lovely views from the attic rooms.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay here; we are pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable time. The room you stayed in, located in the courtyard is our cheapest room and does tend to be popular with fishermen. Your wife and grand daughter were were given an upgrade to our most expensive room for the same price as that was the only room we had left. We are very glad they enjoyed that room (it's our favourite too) and would recommend it to others. We hope you'll come and stay again.

I stumbled across Fownhope and this excellent B&B on a website quite by accident, but I am so glad I stayed! The village and surrouding areas are beautiful and relaxing, and nothing was too much trouble for the proprietors of the Bowens B&B. My suite was clean and very comfortable, and breakfast was superb. Do not worry, if like me, you had never heard of Fownhope before and just wanted to break a longer trip! Book a night or two at this B&B. I am sure you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights whilst attending a friends birthday. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and well presented. The breakfast was great and the staff very friendly and helpful. We will certainly stay here again and would thoroughly recommend it.

I stay at the Bowens at least two times a month and it stands out from all the other B&B's in the area as the service is second to none. The rooms are great, they have free Wifi which is perfect for me to use for work and the owners are always on hand and very attentive to any requests I've had. The rooms are always spotless and the breakfasts are fantastic. I couldn't recommended any higher.
