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, small wedding and elopement venue in Cornwall.
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.
After receiving guests for so many years, it was a smooth transition to offer small, intimate runaway and elopement weddings as part of our stay and play.
We just love the smiles and laughter that make memories to last forever.
