Luxurious, peaceful, quality accommodation

We pride ourselves on the comfort and tranquility of the rooms we offer, with quality linen, fluffy duvets and fluffier towels. They each have their own character, so one is bound to suit you.

The Pink Room

The Pink Room is a luxury double bedroom with a king size double bed and a full-size "P" shaped bath, with shower over.  (The "P" bit means there's plenty of space at the top of the bath to stand under the shower - SO important!)

The Green Room

The Green Room is a luxury twin room, which can be converted to become a SuperKing bed.

Dowfold House - the Green Room

The Red Room

The Red Room is a luxury double bedroom, with a King-size bed, and (say our guests) the most comfortable bed in the world

Breakfast at Dowfold House

With a wide variety of breakfast dishes to choose from there will be something to suit everyone. Orange juice, a choice of cereals, a selection of seasonal fruit and a variety of yoghurts are on the table, so just help yourself.
