Bowes House Bed & Breakfast
Bowes House is our family home. It is warm welcoming and very comfortable. There are lovely views from every window in the house across the valley in front of us or the beautiful garden and ancient barn. We are at the end of a short track, which turns into a bridleway. Perfect for many wonderful walks which we can help you plan, maps are available to borrow.
There are two bedrooms, one twin with ensuite shower and a 6ft double which can be made into a twin with ensuite bath and shower. The rooms are spacious and quiet. There are feather duvets and pillows and white cotton bed linen and towels. The water is softened as we are in a very hard water area to make bathing a luxurious experience, it is heated by the sun.
Breakfast is sourced from organic and or local produce or even from the garden. I make my own yoghurt, marmalade and jams. Eggs are from our own hens. We offer cereals, fruit, yoghurt, eggs, bacon, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, toast/bread, tea and coffee. There are always herbal teas including rooibosch and decaffeinated coffee to choose from as an alternative. Special diets can be catered for with advance warning. Our drinking water is filtered.
Mosterton is situated between the thriving market towns of Crewkerne (Somerset) and Beaminster. On Saturday mornings there is a farmers market in Crewkerne and Beaminster has a wealth of good food shops serving local and organic produce. The fabulous Jurassic coastline is 20 minutes away at West Bay which also boasts two excellent fish restaurants, The West Bay and The Riverside restaurant. At Burton Bradstock there is the excellent Hive Beach cafe on the beach and newly opened The Watch House at West Bay. Within 20 minutes of Bowes House we recommend Wynyards Gap at Cheddington, The Lord Poulett Arms at Hinton St George, The Half Moon at Melplash and The New Inn at Stoke Abbott. All excellent pubs using local food. The local pub The Admiral Pub does a good meal at an excellent price.
The beaches are wonderful and there are many smaller ones where you can get away from it all. The coastal walking is spectacular.
Also within half an hours drive is Mapperton Gardens, Lower Severalls Garden and Nursery, the National Trust properties, Tintinhull and Montacute, Cricket St Thomas wildlife park, Haynes Motor museum and Fleet air arm museum. Bath is about one hours drive and Stonehenge about 45 minutes.
