About Georgina Lowe
We're Mark & Georgina, owners of our home, Rower Fort. Guests have been coming to stay at Rower Fort for family holidays, celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries for 15 years. We love meeting them and seeing our home being used to create special memories. We usually stay on site in our own barn so that we can be available to help anytime.
Georgina Lowe purchased this Castle in 1990
Why Georgina Lowe chose Honiton
Rower Fort is a totally unique property - a thatched farmhouse, a gothic folly, a Moroccan style swimming pool, all in one!. The interiors are influenced from our travels to the Far East, Asia, India & Morocco. Stylish, individual and quirky. There is no other property quite like it. The location and views are amazing and guests love the remoteness and space.
What makes this Castle unique
As one guest described, we have "the most remarkably cited hot tub on planet earth" - make your way up the spiral staircase of the folly, to the roof to find our hot tub amongst the stars with breathtaking panoramic views. Or, have a relaxing, swim in your exclusive Moroccan swimming pool, heated by our own ground source heat pump to a lovely warm 32 degrees - all built by ourselves and our children when they were young!

Magical & Unforgettable Venue
Words can’t really do it justice but I will just say that Rower Fort seated at the top of a hill with amazing views in every direction is an ideal & very special & unique destination for a large group of friends & family including children & dogs. You walk in through the entrance porch into a fabulous welcoming kitchen which despite it’s size manages to feel cosy, with the biggest kitchen table I have ever seen & a great oil fired Aga & a separate electric cooker. Huge American style fridge freezer & separate large fridge. There is loads of comfy seating in the lounge & a further smaller lounge/games room. Both rooms have huge inglenooks. The style of the house is an eclectic mix with furnishings collected from all over the world. There is a strong Moroccan influence especially in the swimming pool building. The beds & bedding were sumptuous. The indoor pool is amazing & lovely & warm. The hot tub on the turret was so relaxing with 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside & sea on a clear day. The photos do not do it justice. Mark was great & extremely welcoming & very helpful with any answers to questions & practical help & advice, just a text message or call away. We went as a large family group to celebrate our sons 40th birthday & we couldn’t have chosen better. Thank you Mark & Georgina.
