The location might be profoundly rural (though if you have a car, it is very convenient for the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project), but there’s nothing rustic about the styling at this boutique B&B. The four big guest rooms are decorated in bold, vibrant colours, and guests are lavished with soft white dressing gowns, high-end linens, Sanctuary toiletries, chocolates on the pillow and flatscreen TVs, with a selection of DVDs – there’s even a hot tub bubbling away in the garden. Inevitably, Lower Barnisn’tthe cheapestB&Bonthemarket, but you’d struggle to find a hotel offering these sorts of extras in this price range. Dinner (pre-book and BYO) is served in the Shack, a fairy light-lit hideout in the garden. The Hideaway and the Garden Suite are the most private of the rooms; the former is particularly popular with honeymooners, being tucked away down the garden with a super-king-size bed and a freestanding bath.
