Classed as grade II by the Department of the Environment various features are singled out as being 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 with urns topping them 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.Originally built by a prosperous clothier one of several who built large houses along the valley of the river Sheppey. Ownership passed to the Anglo Bavarian Brewery of Shepton Mallet about the mid 1800's at which time the new Wells Road passing through part of Bowlish House property took off part of the factory' rooms. In 1954 the house passed to private ownership and began its latest phase as first a hotel and subsequently a restaurant with rooms.Dinner is available Monday to Saturday evenings on a pre-booking basis.Unfortunately the dining room is closed Sunday nights.The whole hotel is non-smoking and any guest found to have been smoking in their room after departure will incur a penalty of œ300 against the card used to secure the booking.
