Nestled in a hidden corner of South Cornwall, close to the sea and in walking distance of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the SW coast path, you will find Lower Barns.  It is a luxury boutique retreat, a B&B  all about romance.  Couples love it here, it is a magical weekend getaway, a bolthole to share precious times together, just right for runaway weddings, honeymoons, hen parties – in fact anything indulgent!

If you have ever felt the need to be spoilt, come on in. Here at Lower Barns we have created a unique hiding place where you can rest, relax and slip away from the pressures of everyday life and discover what really matters………precious time to spend with partners, family and friends while we look after you.

The rooms are places of sheer indulgence, an extravaganza of eye popping palettes recreating colours from nature’s paintbrush from Cornwall’s fields and coastline, together with places we have visited on our travels around the world. Janie draws her inspiration from Mother Nature and has an uncanny ability to be brave with colours and textures to create bold, eye catching room designs which delight your senses. Mike has a natural eye for form and his building and carpentry skills have lovingly created the amazing buildings and furniture which complement Janie’s designs to perfection.

Room rates include Award Winning breakfast with local produce. Breakfast is served in the lounge or within the comfort of your room, or alfresco when the sun is shining.  Delivered to your door if you are staying in Nook and Cranny.

Evening meals are served in The Party Shed, tucked away in a corner of the wildflower garden.  An enchanting building with a huge, handcrafted table and benches scattered with warm blankets and cushions.  With twinkling candle light and log burning fire, this is an intimate evening place of wonderment to delight your senses and provide a convivial atmosphere for dining together.  Bring your own booze.  (Please book in advance as we do not serve food every day).
