It is the site of a Bronze Age barrow approximately 20 metres (66 ft) in diameter, which was excavated in 1813, and is believed to have given the village its name as Rowbarrow means 'rough hill' or 'barrow'.
The author and cat lover Doreen Tovey lived in Rowberrow from the early fifties until her death in 2008. By the end of 2014, her white cottage down in the valley was demolished to make place for new housing.
