Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We arrived at Bowlish House and were immediately taken with the whole experience. The proprietors couldn't do more to make us welcome. The rooms are quirky but clean with a comfortable bed. You get used to the creaking floorboards as it is all part of the experience. Dinning in the orangery was divine, the food was perfect to. We had our American daughter with us and she was blown away with Bowlish House.

Rooms with no restaurant.
Advertised as a restaurant with rooms, we went on a Monday (travelling for 2 hours) to find the restaurant was shut on Mondays. Similarly the bar. So we had to get a taxi into town and back to eat. Interestingly, the receptionist was amazed I wanted food out on a Monday. The floorboards were beyond creaky, as was the bed. Breakfast was fine, but you need to like dogs. They have a dog who sits on your foot in the dining room, when not barking.
