I'm just back from spending last night at Rowan House, where I was wonderfully looked after by Jilly & Michael and their dogs, Toby & Pepe. What made my trip very special was that my 8 month old golden labrador was warmly welcomed and fussed over by all, too! I had googled a dog-friendly B&B in the area, as I was coming for research and wanted to do some walking with my dog (actually my partner's dog, but she is away for a few weeks, so she is in my capable hands, but that's another story....) and was delighted to be guided to Rowan House. It is wonderfully situated in a really special and stunning part of the countryside, and I particularly recommend this B&B for anyone on the trail of the poet John Clare in the area.
Jilly & Michael share their lovely house, provide warmth and comfort with a twist of sophistication, and their 2 dogs complete the picture. Thank you from me & my mutt for your care and company - it was great to be spoiled. I'll be back, & I highly recommend their home to anyone wishing to experience the best that this area has to offer.
