As you breeze towards the south coast, the busy-for-Cornwall roads give way to country lanes that are edged with bluebells and foxgloves in the spring. Before the land comes to a full stop at the sandy beaches, spectacular coastline and pretty fishing villages, you will find Lower Barns.
Prepare to fall under the spell of this special place instantly. Blending a joyful riot of colour and a heady air of romance, you’ll find a cluster of stylish retreats scattered across a glorious garden; the lush lawn is sprinkled with colourful flowerbeds and quirky signage, lanterns and wooden flowers, while the trees blossom with candyfloss pink and cream flowers in the spring. There’s also a sun-baked deck for laidback moments in the sun, and a sheltered hot tub – just the spot for champagne and stargazing.
Hugged by private courtyards, the luxurious Hiding Places – Nook and Cranny – pop with colour and character. Blending eye-catching design with luxe, cosy comforts, such as a slipper bathtub, dive-into-me bed, wood-burner and retro Smeg fridge, these gorgeous spots beg you to relax, unwind and indulge. Each of the Hiding Places come with private hot tubs as well. Similarly, the Hideaway offers colour and romance in abundance; there’s a super king-size bed, a slipper bath and even a gypsy caravan in the private garden.
There are four more suites in the main building, each offering individual design, rich palettes and must-come-back comforts. Therapies are in the comfort of your own suites.
This hidden gem is perfect for small, intimate weddings and elopements, where couples want no fuss or or stress. Tucked away in the garden, the purpose built ceremony rooms 'The Wed Shed’ and ‘The Shack’ are unique spots to take your vows. The Wed Shed is great for alfresco dos, while The Shack has a warming fire, candles and twinkly lights giving it plenty of ‘hygge’ for autumn and winter weddings. The Lounge, with its luxury textiles, vibrant art and roaring log fire awaits exclusive weddings for groups of up to 20.
After your vows, you may celebrate entirely as you wish. It might be a picnic in the garden, a loved up stroll across a local beach or a delicious wedding feast in The Party Shed, where you can play vinyl and kick back to relax on fancy sofas. Don’t forget to absorb the romance of this exquisite spot with a soak in the hot tub under the stars or a glass of champagne in the gypsy caravan - just the two of you.
