Vintage style breathes new life into us
Did you know Candida completely transformed her life dealing antiques in France to take on The Bower Inn?
As a former antiques dealer, specialist collector of vintage fabrics, furniture and accessories, Candida has now completed refurbishing the place in style.
It'd been empty for several years when Candida and Peter took it over six years ago. It was a big task getting it cleaned up and back into some sort of working order before the refurbishing project and the building of the new hotel rooms took place.
A lot of the fabrics Candida has used date back to the 1800s and quite a few Candida brought over from France.
People love staying here as they find the eclectic range of furnishing in each room just that little bit different and nearly every day someone wants to buy something or wants to know where Candida has sourced the items from. No two rooms are the same, so very often guests return and request another room so they can experience something new. Every piece has a story too and people love that.
