An historic country house

With distant and uninterrupted views

Bowley Court is a stunning, historic property just outside the village of Bodenham in Herefordshire. It has been sensitively restored, with exquisite attention to detail and it is now available for exclusive bookings. Sleeping up to 18 guests in nine gorgeous bedrooms (plus a few more on put-up beds), it’s a dream of a house in a dream setting. Layers of history are carefully blended with modern comforts in the welcoming rooms, and the social spaces lend themselves to easy-going, formal or informal gatherings.

Outside, the sweeping lawns give way to views across the rolling Herefordshire countryside. The grounds are the crowning glory of this property and outside there is space to gather up to 250 guests for a special occasion or corporate event in a marquee or tipi, or up to 100 guests for an indoor event when you also hire the wonderful large bar space adjacent to the house.

Cosy rooms with rustic charm

For convivial get-togethers

The downstairs rooms are made cosy by squishy sofas, oak beams and log fires. A delightful snug and two large lounges provide the social spaces for relaxing, while a modern, well-equipped kitchen, breakfast room and formal dining room set the scene for memorable meal times. Enjoy a few games in the pool room, break out the board games for some family fun or find a quiet corner in the snug and curl up with a book.

Outside, there is space for adventures in the woods, for soaking up the sun on the south facing lawns, and for romantic walks in the rose garden. There’s also a wonderful walled kitchen garden and an orchard to explore. If you are planning a party or event, it can take place in any number of outdoor spaces, including the fold yard, the lawns or the woodlands. There are beautiful indoor options too, for your celebrations, including the low-beamed barn, which can be bedecked with fairy lights for a magical atmosphere.

A deep, refreshing sleep is all but guaranteed in the comfortable beds after a day out in the clean, country air. The bathrooms are places of sanctuary, bringing modern comforts to this grand old property.

There’s room for up to 18 guests and space for cots and put-up beds in some of the bedrooms. The extensive grounds and entertaining options allow you to invite more guests for your celebrations, and additional overnight guests can even camp in the grounds for an added sense of adventure.
