Back in 1998 we discovered Lower Barns; a beautiful yet derelict building that was in serious need of some TLC. Almost 20 years on, Lower Barns has become a gorgeous, luxury boutique retreat in Cornwall; a place where you and your partner can relax and unwind in your own personal sanctuary away from the busy outside world. Read on to find out more about us, Lower Barns and why it is the perfect place for you and your loved one to create some unforgettable memories.
We found this beautiful building with brambles climbing through every wall and undergrowth through what was left of any roofs. There were chickens in what is now our dining room. Despite it’s derelict state, we could both see what it could be. That was in 1998. We had been travelling the world and our heads were full of the colours and beauty of other lands, although none more than Cornwall.
Our son, Jake had arrived at that stage and our home was complete. We combined our passion for cooking, interiors, love of colour, gardening and creative building to set a stage to share. Our dreams have always been about being and doing our best and we are ever evolving with our designs and style and always giving of the highest standard of care. Lower Barns is about romantic indulgence with friendly personal service.
You can enjoy fresh breakfasts, countryside walks, watch movies from large comfortable beds and indulge in a therapeutic massage or holistic treatments. Ours is a place unlike any other and we aim to spoil you here. For a honeymoon haven, rekindling the romance or simply a sanctuary away from the world outside, turn up, kick off your shoes, relax and enjoy an indulgent, idyllic, secret retreat here.
