One of the Ten Best Places to Stay in the Cotswolds
“Halfway between Stratford-upon-Avon and Chipping Norton is the quaint market town of Shipston-on-Stour – and one of its grand Georgian townhouses is now The Bower House, updated with huge attention to detail, lavished on both the food and the accommodation. Downstairs, for the former, it’s all beetroot carpaccio and scallops (the Sunday lunch gets rave reviews, too). Upstairs are five rooms with a side order of panache. You get art, walk-in showers, eau-de-Nil tiles and bunk beds for children.”

The Bower House combines foodie flair with elegance and pleasing prices an epicurean haven serving seriously good food. Little expense has been spared on the bedrooms, and the individual designs of each space have been meticulously thought through.

DAILY TELEGRAPH

100 top British Hotels 2017 — “The five bedrooms are six-star havens and the menu layered with satisfying flavours”

SUNDAY TIMES

One of the UK’s most exciting restaurants with rooms — “This is intended to be a neighbourhood restaurant where locals pop in for brunch or get dressed up for supper on a Saturday night, but of course it draws city dwellers too. Upstairs are five elegant bedrooms, one with an additional little bunk room for children… glorious.”

CONDÉ NAST TRAVELLER

One of the best 50 places in the UK for Sunday Roast — “The Bower House is a hotel with an excellent restaurant… Meats are of impeccable quality and beautifully roasted, service is slick.”

TOM PARKER BOWLES, MAIL ON SUNDAY

“A gorgeous setting for dining or chatting over coffee”

COTSWOLD LIFE

I am aware that this review sounds like hyperbole, but believe me I am a food snob and do not flatter easily. But this was seriously, unquestionably sublime cooking superbly presented.”

STRATFORD HERALD

“Unashamedly stylish and situated in a handsome Grade II-listed building, The Bower House offers an all-day dining haven… Our suite was stunning… and the cooking speaks for itself; hats off to the chef. Neither could we fault the service, the staff happy, content, professional and couldn’t do enough for you. We are already thinking about our next trip up to Shipston, because we’ll certainly be going back again. It really is the perfect, easy weekend getaway.”
