We stayed in the annex whilst at bowerland and it was warm, comfortable and well appointed. It was fabulous for the dogs and it was great having a secure garden to let them out in and a nice wee walk close by. The training facility is also very good and staff friendly and helpful. I'll definitely return!

We were in the Annexe , which was very comfortable clean and sheltered from the Wind !! only a basic Combi Oven , so if you want to cook , you would probaly be better off renting the larger cottages , but was just right for us , plenty of takeaways pubs nearby in Okehampton , and great chippy Kempsleys...

Great that you enjoyed your break, we agree, the Annexe is perfect for a short holiday. And especially if you want to treat yourself and eat out. If you would prefer to eat in, take aways are fine. If you want to cook, the Old Dairy is much larger with a normal size kitchen and oven facilities. Hope to see...

First holiday with my 16 month old lab. Fabulous accommodation in the Annex, cosy and comfortable, very dog friendly and a brilliant training programme. All the trainers were friendly and understood my young dogs needs and where I am at with his training. Enjoyed learning together some of the pre foundation agility and getting more focus towards me from my...

Stayed in The Old Dairy from 23-30 September 2016. It is a lovely homely cottage and ideal for people and for dogs. All the facilities you could want, warm, comfortable and a nice sized garden, fully enclosed for the dogs. Loved sitting in the conservatory - great room. The human and dog welcome packs are a lovely touch - thank...

Thank you John, it is a lovely review. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your week. You had good weather (well most of the time) and hopefully were able to relax and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of Dartmoor. The dogs were all extremely well behaved, and seemed to fit in really well. We look forward to seeing you...

We had a two week holiday with our two dogs, and had a great time. The accommodation is comfortable and Clean. Bowerland is great for Dartmoor and the North and South coasts. This was our second visit and we will probably come back for a third visit.

We stayed at Bowerland for 4 days of training with our young lurcher. The annexe was comfortable, immaculately clean and the dog was obviously positively welcome. The little touches (marmalade, little vase of fresh flowers, radox in the bathroom) made this a little bit more special than the standard self catering cottage.

Spent 4 nights in the annex with 2 of my dogs and thought it was lovely. Comfortable, cosy, relaxing and clean and loved the little gifts you receive. Loved having the use of an enclosed paddock and the option for agility lessons. I would definitely return.
