"Beautiful house in a lovely location"
Claire and Kevin were really helpful and friendly making us feel at home immediately. It is a beautiful house in a perfect setting on the edge of a pretty village. It was the right location for us attending a wedding locally. Read less
Likes:
Very comfortable room with good facilities, very clean and friendly family run business. The garden was gorgeous and we were encouraged to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine there.
Dislikes:
The only awkward part was that the lock on our door was temperamental and we couldn't lock it from inside, which was a bit odd, but they tried to fix it and were very apologetic.
Response from The Bowens Bed & Breakfast:
Many thanks for the review; we're pleased you enjoyed your stay here and liked the garden and Fownhope village. Apologies again about the awkward door lock; it is now fixed!
Best regards, Claire & Kevin Braybrook
