On business and needed somewhere to stay that was close. Read reviews and booked. So glad I did. Pleasant welcome from the owners. Room was spacious and clean. Bed really comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was the best I have had in ages when staying away. The homemade

Thank you very much. You're about the first to try our home-made yoghurt, and we're delighted you enjoyed it. We do. We're really keen on making as much of our own food/growing our own produce as we can. Now, just where are we going to put that cow...

We had a wonderful stay! Jill & Rupert are exceptional hosts. Enjoyed tea and their home made biscuits by the open fire place with wonderful views. For breakfast we were spoiled with yummy home made apple compote and delicious home made apple juice. We would be delighted to go

Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you to stay. We enjoy growing and making what we serve to guests - this year, even the grapes have been good! Chateau Dowfold may still be some way off, however...

I have been coming regularly to Dowfold house for three years now and look forward to my next visit at each departure. This is so much more than a ‘bed and breakfast’; Rupert and Jill go beyond the line of duty in ensuring that guests are welcomed, cared for and waved off at the

Thank you very much. We doubt we could have put it better ourselves! We continue to be delighted and amazed at your continuing appetite for our extensive range of home-made goodies, which we get a great deal of pleasure in developing and offering. Essentially, we run Dowfold House Bed and Breakfast as a place where we would really like to stay ourselves - and we're helped in this by staying at a lot of excellent B&Bs, from whom we plagiarise shamelessly! We particularly like Wolsey Lodges establishments - of whom we are a member. Wolsey Lodges offer a "home from home" experience, which is what we most appreciate.

The b&b was the best we had stayed in, the room was spacious and clean and the breakfast, although we didnt opt for any cooked food was varied. Gill even provided stewed apple as my brother hadnt been very well. Would definitely return.

Thank you very much. We're delighted you enjoyed it. We would recommend the full range of cooked breakfasts (but, then, we're biased...)

Beautiful house with a fantastic welcome. My sister and I stayed in Jill and Rupert’s lovely B and B for a three night stay in the area. We had tickets for Kynren(not to be missed) and Rupert was kind enough to offer to drive us there and collect us after the performance. It
