The family can explore the extensive grounds and sports and games facilities whatever the weather or season.

The cottages have been sympathetically converted from 17th century farm buildings, retaining original beams and features. All our cottages have log burning stoves set into large brick inglenooks, king-size beds, at least 2 bathrooms in each cottage (except Little Bowden) with a bath & power shower and are all equipped to a high standard with handmade fitted pine kitchens – including fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer. The flat panel digital TVs all have Freeview and some cottages have Apple TV controllers. Each cottage has one or two allocated parking spaces located close to the cottage.

We have a large indoor heated swimming pool with changing rooms, which is oxygen treated avoiding the health issues associated with chlorine & bromine.

there is much to keep the family at Higher Bowden…” quote from the Daily Telegraph

South Devon and particularly the South Hams offer a huge range of high quality attractions that can keep a family entertained whatever the weather.
