We stayed here for one night and were so glad we did. It is a beautiful house with lovely period features and furniture, so peaceful and relaxing. Lovely garden with a duck pond (and two lovely dogs!.) We were made very welcome and Lois and Andrew were so friendly and helpful and recommended a very nice pub for a meal....

We stayed here as we were guests at a wedding nearby at Elvey Farm. The owners, Lois and Andrew were most welcoming and helpful and arranged transportation to and from the wedding. Bow Cottage is warm and welcoming. The bedrooms clean and comfortable. The cooked breakfast excellent. Strongly recommended if you need to stay in the area.

We've just returned from a nights stay at Bow Cottage, as our friend got married around the corner.
