We stayed here for three nights in May. I'm sure our overall impression was helped by the gorgeous weather but we were made extremely welcome by Lisa. We came with elderly parents who found the stairs a challenge but both rooms we were given were spacious and perfect for our needs. Lisa was knowledgable about the area and was able...

We stayed Bowes for one night.Lisa was very friendly and welcoming, not only to us but also to Willow (our black labrador). She was very knowledgeable about the area and suggested a lovely place for supper. The room was extremely comfortable (huge bed + top quality linen), lovely views of the gardens and surrounding countryside. We also were given access...

I'll just start with a slight negative - surprised not to see room tidied (but I see Lisa makes a point of this for short stays) - but this won't affect the overall review - just something to consider. I didn't make a point of it while I was there because everything else was just so.... welcoming - very pleasant...

I stayed at Bowes only for two days. Friendly and familiar atmosphere, wonderful countryside. Everything peaceful. The access alley is very characteristic, even if a little dangerous to cross for the car shock absorbers,,,but country is country). I hope I shall come back, one day amd, for sure, not only for businness and solo but also with friends and family.

A two night stay was nothing but a pleasure. Lisa and Jeremy were wonderful hosts and couldn't have been more helpful with tips and advice on interesting places to see and excellent local restaurants. Contrary to the previous review we saw no sign of animal hairs in the living room, in fact the place was spotless. Breakfast too was delicious...

We stayed at Bowes House in August, all started well but did not last long.I feel that the B&B Service given is now tired and worn out. Despite old revues being good we did not see any good service on our trip unfortunately we stayed for too many days. We were made to feel awkward every day asking on a...

I am so sorry that you were unhappy with your stay at Bowes House, I was most surprised to read your review as you had given no indication of not being happy whilst you were with us. We do have pets and usually these are kept out of the guest sitting/dining room, on this occasion as your daughter was so...

We received a very warm welcome from Lisa, and had a fantastic bedroom, with biggest bath we have seen in a long time, and views over the valleys that were wonderful. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the morning with freshly picked raspberries and yoghurt, and kippers, which were very moreish. We wished we could have stayed longer, and this...

Our five days at Bowes House were wonderful. Lisa pays scrupulous attention to the finest details, but also manages to be relaxed and welcoming. The organic breakfasts were delicious, with home made yoghurt and preserves; bacon and sausages from their own pigs (the latter also home made); and eggs collected from the hens in the field beyond the gate. The...

We were made very welcome, and Lisa took the time to give us some local knowledge, with suggestions of places to see and happily loaned us maps. Very enjoyable stay with large comfortable room for three nights, but could well have stayed longer.

This is our second visit to Bowes House situated on the edge of Mosterton Village and we have found it a very comfortable and quiet place to stay. The two main bedrooms (both en suite) are comfortable and spacious with lovely views across the countryside. Breakfast is delicious with local produce. The only drawback is that there are no tea/coffee...
