We stayed here from 15 to 18 June 2014 whilst visiting Family in Otley. Tim and Helen are lovely hosts and their home is amazing. We stayed in Room 2 at the front of the House. The bed was very comfy, you do get some road noise if the windows are open but we still slept well. The en-suite shower...

Dowgill House is a charming B&B in the Centre of Otley operated by two very friendly and welcoming owners. We were heading to Ascot Ladies Day at the Roebuck, so the B&B made every effort to get our rooms ready for late morning. Mine wasn't quite ready, but to be fair, they were replacing my carpet as a previous guest...

I stayed at the Dowgill for 5 nights in March 2014. What a lovely place to stay. An old fashioned building with mod cons. Beautifully clean. The breakfast each morning was lovely. Very pleasant hosts. I have recommended the Dowgill to friends and I hope to stay there again in the future.
