Bowden Lodge is absolutely stunning, we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend here. We all wished that we could have stayed for longer and we can't wait to visit again.

The place is well equipped and spacious. All of the rooms are lovely and well designed. It's also such a blessing having some many en-suites and bathrooms too especially when there's a big group of you.

We were also blessed with beautiful weather all weekend which meant that we were able to enjoy the lovely garden and the amazing outdoor pool.

The location is also perfect, we walked to the local pub (the Zetland Arms) for Sunday dinner by the beach.

I would highly recommend staying here and I'll definitely be booking it again soon for another visit.

We stayed at Bowden Lodge for a long weekend and the house is AMAZING! We were 12 people and having so many bathrooms was a real luxury. There is so much space, the large farmhouse kitchen was extremely well equipped and has a lovely Aga. There is also a second kitchen with another electric oven which is really helpful for lots of people. The owners have provided travel cots and high chairs which was so useful not to have to pack these up in the car.
There is a large dining room seating 12 people easily. The sitting room is huge and has a lovely wood burner. There is a good music system too which is great. There is a games room where all the children played all weekend with lots of toys and a pool table.
All the bedrooms are a really good size and the bathrooms are luxurious.
The garden was fantastic for the kids and the dogs! I would imagine the pool is just amazing in the summer and we are already planning our trip in August.
