possibly the best i have ever stayed in, a nice welcome from Roma the room was excellent and the little touches make it so, the views are outstanding to a city dweller like myself so quiet at night the local pub was a ten minute walk away(3 to walk down the long drive) food was all to the best standards i have ever encountered including some of the nice hotels we have stayed in, stay here and complain, there is nothing to complain about, thank you Roma for a lovely stay, will definately be going back

I stayed here for my sister's wedding with my mum, sister and her oldest friend. We had the place to ourselves and Roma the owner was just fantastic, never mind B&B Roma was a discreet and intuitive presence the whole time, there when and if you needed her but leaving us to enjoy our family occasion. The bedrooms and sitting room was spotlessly clean and wonderfully supplied with fresh water, milk, tea and coffee, proper stuff as well as instant. Every possible need was catered for. We felt so at home. Roma was fantastic, I could not recommend this B&B highly enough.

Incredible - that describes our overnight stay in the Royal Oak room at Bow River House on the 2lst September 2011. Roma is one of life's great individuals who we meet rarely and deserves her gold star award from Visit Britain. Our room was quite exotic and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and well presented but above all absolute peace is assured in this quiet environment

Room Tip: any room is excellent

Stayed here with some friends for a wedding - such a beautiful house in a pretty peaceful little village with a lovely looking pub (which unfortunately we didn't get to try this time around!) Lovely rooms, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Gorgeous views over the owner's paddocks/stables which house their many beautiful horses. Wonderful breakfast in a lovely large sunny room. The owner is incredibly friendly, helpful and courteous. We all agreed that we will definitely stay here again!

We stayed here (a couple and one single) for a family celebration nearby. Very welcoming and accommodating, attractive rooms, very peaceful location. Particularly good breakfast with lots of local produce.

My other half and I stayed at Bow River House with two other couples for a nearby wedding. Roma (who runs the B&B) couldn't have been more helpful. We ended up arriving late - that was no problem. We could have breakfast at a time to suit us, and the breakfast was fabulous, with nearly all the cooked items sourced locally. The breakfast room is lovely, and has lots of room for the easy chairs that are in there that we were encouraged to use. We stayed in the largest room, which was huge, massive bed and large bathroom. Our friends had slightly smaller bathrooms, but they were more than happy with their stay too. This B&B is a little out of the way, but the handy pub five minutes walk away does great food, and had a very warm welcome.
We would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.

This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking for fantastic quality, value for money and beautiful, peaceful surroundings.
It is right out in the sticks but wasn't difficult to find.
Roma was so welcoming, a lovely host. The room was everything we wanted, huge bed! Lovely bathroom.
Breakfast was one of the best I've had at a B&B, so much lovely fresh fruit, I kept going back to pick at some more!
Highly recommended.
