I spent two very lovely nights in the B&B at Bowhayes. There are very, very comfy beds, rooms of great character and an extremely warm welcome from all of the residents (humans, horses and dogs!). I felt really at home and completely relaxed, it is a wonderful place to rest and reflect. There are also interesting activities you can do too, such as the yoga on horse back - a unique experience - to be recommended for anyone who may like to sit on Barty, one of the many special equine residents.
The other fabulous part of the stay is the food - Lucinda is a perfectionist and it shows at the breakfast table! I had a lovely vegetarian breakfast and the other guests who were having the full English were spoilt with perfectly cooked, local, sausages and bacon.
Overall Bowhayes is a tucked away gem with a great view across the Devonian hills, but only a few minutes from the M5.
