New small wedding-venue in the heart of Cornwall

As you breeze towards the south coast of Cornwall the 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 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, and the trees blossom with candlyfloss pink and cream flowers in the spring. There’s also a sun-baked deck for laidback moments the sun, and a sheltered hot tub – just the spot for champagne and honeymoons.

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 dive-into-me bed, woodturner and retro Smeg fridge, these gorgeous spots beg you to relax, unwind and indulge. 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.

Three more suites in the main house, offer individual design, rich palettes and must-come-back comforts. There’s also a therapy room, where a menu of beauty treatments and massages are conducted in candlelit comfort.

This is a hidden gem for small-scale weddings and elopements. Tucked away in the gardens, the ‘Wed Shed’, offers a unique spot to take your vows, the gorgeous printed chairs, quirky-cool desk and light up ‘wed me’ letters creating a fun vibe with a twist of Mexican fiesta. With a beautiful mural on the wall beyond and the scent of flowers filling the air, it makes an extraordinary, soul stirring backdrop for a ceremony. The Lounge blends the same vibrant character with snug furnishings and glamorous accents, is also licensed for ceremonies.

After your vows you may like a picnic in the gardens, a loved-up stroll across a local beach or a delicious feast in The Party Shed, an enchanting retreat in the wildflower garden, amidst a carnival of candles and fairy lights, and a roaring log fire. 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.
