This is one of our favourite B&Bs in England. The setting is incredible, and we did an incredible walk up into the hills just behind Bowens. The breakfast was one of the nest we have had and featured fantastic local produce. The room was comfortable, and had a lovely outlook over the fields behind. We will definitely be staying here...

The rooms are comfortable and kept to an amazing standard of cleanliness and tidiness, on a par with the best high end chain hotels. The breakfast is simple, lovingly prepared, and delicious.
