Wonderful setting. Very charming B & B in rural Devon. Lovely rooms complete with every little touch you could want for a perfect stay; soft sheets, comfy bed, throws and blankets made from the wool of the shetland sheep that roam the organic farm. Open fires, books and long walks. A perfect place to chill out. Decorated to a high... More

We recently spent 3 excellent nights at Bowden Farm. The rooms were very comfortable and there was a great selection available for breakfast every day. Fantastic cream tea on arrival, too! Sue was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We intend to return.

The hosts are charming - so friendly but not 'in your face'. Breakfast is AMAZING, as were the scones with the cream tea when we arrived. Get a good... More

What a beautiful place - fantastic rooms and excellent hospitality - if you take all three rooms available it's like being in your own home with the added bonus of not having to make your own breakfast! We fully intend to go back in the summer.

We stayed at Bowden Farm Luxury B&B accommodation for two nights. First of all, the location is fantastic ..... off the beaten track in the heart of North Devon. The house itself, part of a working farm, is charming and very inviting indeed. Downstairs is the large living room, with it's gorgeous log fire to keep you warm even on... More
