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. Evening meals are served in The Shack, 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.

A wonderful getaway bolthole!
I didn't realise places like Lower Barn existed....just cannot express how sylish,beautiful and quirky this place is.I travelled alone as I badly needed to de-sress and although I had peace,quiet and an owl I wasn't isolated.
Hosts Mike and Janie have lovingly built each part individually and their dedication has paid huge dividends. I was actually sad to leave....but will be back!
£120 for 1 nights B&B - sadly lacking !
Expectations - £120 for 1 night B&B = comfortable, a little bit of luxury, good standard of accommodation Reality - a budget electric shower that resembles a incontinent drip, a built in hair dryer that is falling apart, owners that are not available in person OR by phone to help with problems ( they were out drinking .
), no form of heating on a cold night, a hot tub in a dark corner of the garden with no lighting making it impossible to use, fresh milk that had "gone off", plastic bedside cups, cheap towels that appear to be water resistant (think about it), a dressing gown that had a rather dubious odour, apart from that, the cooked breakfast was pleasant.
