We stayed in Bowes Barn for a week and found it very comfortable. Downstairs had a kitchen diner and living area with everything we could need. Upstairs had a double bedroom and a single which we used for storing our luggage. Bathroom had a bath and good shower.

We stayed in Bowes Barn at Riding Farm. Such a lovely place to stay and the owners Angus and Louise are the perfect hosts. Hospitality is second to none and they do everything to ensure your stay is happy and comfortable. It is clean and has everything you could need.
