I haven't got room in this little box to tell you how good this place is, but I'll try. Firstly, yes you need a sat nav to find it, but oh my god it's worth it! The location is perfect for exploring Cornwall whilst still having so much peace and quiet at the B&B, and the grounds it's set in are gorgeous. Secondly, the rooms; stunning. The whole place is done beautifully, it's quirky perfection. The bed was zonk-out-straight-away comfortable, the conservatory was fab to chill out in after a full day of adventures, the bathroom had everything you could possibly need and the breakfast room is unique, inviting and gorgeous! The breakfasts were so tasty, from the fresh fruit and yogurt to the perfectly done full English and everything inbetween. We were there for 5 nights and my boyfriend consumed a full English every day, his jean buttons are now suffering but he doesn't even care! Thirdly, and yes it does deserve a point all by itself, The Shack. A tin roof shed in the garden that they have managed to transform into a a little box of loveliness. Candles, open fire, bunting, cushions, and a hot water bottle for everyone eating in there, its absolutely gorgeous. As was the 3 courses of Janie's cooking that we all stuffed our faces with! Fourthly, Janie and Mike. Friendly, welcoming, full of helpful tips and just generally really lovely, they make lower barn that extra bit special. Plus, their tips on the area and things to do turned out to be little gems so make sure you listen! I genuinely don't think you could wish for nicer hosts.
I'm filling up this little box without even mentioning the hot tub (I could have slept in it) the lovely little family pet, Jazz (the only diabetic dog I have ever met) and the owl (seriously, the place even has an owl!). We had an amazing stay, exceeded all our expectations and we fell a little bit in love with the place. Can't wait to go back, especially to see how the 2 new rooms that mikes been working away on turn out. Thankyou so much Janie and Mike, and hopefully see you soon!
