The space

Bowerbank Mill is one of the undisputed icons in the Meander Valley. This 1853 colonial building with its grand Georgian façade & imposing six-storey chimney has gained a reputation both nationally & internationally as a world class Heritage B&B Accommodation & Art Gallery. Sensitive restoration to Bowerbank Mill maintains many of its original features—meter thick stone walls, massive pit-saw beams, slate roof, mill stone (from France) & more. Add to this a poetic blend of quality antiques, interesting ‘objects d’art’, modern comforts & old fashioned hospitality & you have a restful, timeless ambience—a repose second to none. The gourmet breakfasts offer tasty home-made jams & delicious fruit compotes (mostly organic fruit from the Mill’s garden) cooked in local honey. “This is just what we were looking for—to feel like we were in a bit of History…… Better than anything else,” and “You have created a national living treasure. Every room is a gem—each so complete but all contributing to the whole. P.S. Loved the breakfasts, especially the rhubarb compote,” exclaimed ecstatically happy guests.

Chimney Cottage:-for those couples on a special time away. Be greeted by fragrant cottage flower gardens retained in rock walls, paved paths and the awesome six storey Chimney. Walk through antique arched doors into the ground floor that features exposed beams, natural blue stone walls, views over pastures and pretty gardens, kitchenette/dining area, piano and lounge in front of the blazing log fire in that totally amazing Chimney. Upstairs the alluring loft bedroom has a Queen size half-tester bed, bath/shower ensuite. Enjoy the genuine antiques & period curios. This delightful cottage has been described by guests as having “Medieval charm” & being full of romance as from the pages of a “Thomas Hardy novel”.
Accommodates max two people in the upstairs bedroom in a Queen size bed.
