A Grade II* Georgian Palladian style house, sympathetically decorated. With contemporary art adorning the walls, gardens, a bar, and a restaurant for dining in style. Charming surroundings.
Bowlish House offers you a home from home without the hassle, but with a warm and friendly welcome. Each bedroom has its own style whilst retaining the original character of the house. There is a first floor guest lounge to relax in and a fully licensed restaurant to enjoy the taste of the West.
It is close to the Mendip hills, the cathedral city of Wells, Glastonbury, Wookey Hole and Cheddar. This Georgian Palladian house, classed as Grade II*, has various features of special interest ? the original Mendip lead drainpipes at the front carry the crest of the original owners and the year of completion, 1732. The walls and pillars topped with urns which formed the entrance of the old gardens are also singled out for specific mention.
A small spring rises under the cellar of Bowlish House and links up with an underground stream routed diagonally across the cellar floor just under the old flagstones. Thus the temperature of the large cellars is more constant than otherwise and varies by no more than 2 or 3 degrees either side of the ideal 50 ?F. Bowlish House is an interesting and peaceful location in which to escape and enjoy top quality food, or to get away from it all with friends and family.

Guests can enjoy fresh local produce of a high standard in the recently redecorated dining and garden room. A set menu or individually priced a la carte menu is available at lunch time. Dinner is a much grander affair - we offer a wonderful choice of starters and main courses but you will need to leave room for one of our delicious desserts. While you choose from the menu, sit back, relax and order a drink from the bar.
