Awarding winning accommodation in a rural location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its own nature reserve, river frontage and great facilities. Lower Marsh Farm is stunning, peaceful and run sustainably for wildlife.

Kingfisher Barn (named after the Kingfishers found on the Salt Marsh) is an attractive stone converted barn which provides superior accommodation for up to 8 people staying at Lower Marsh Farm.  Set over two floors, the top floor boasts a large open plan lofty beamed ceiling kitchen / living area (approximately 5m x 10m) with oak flooring, dining table and a fitted kitchen with all modern conveniences. Outside there is a private garden area with your own hot tub, a table and chairs for al-fresco dining and a BBQ.

Guests have full access to all of our amenities – including a tennis court, orchard, basketball hoop, Salt Marsh Nature Reserve, woodland and private shingle river tidal beach. The ample space on the farm, self check-in option, lots of walks from your door (maps are provided).

If you are rather looking forward to some peace and quiet, then this tranquil rural spot fits the bill; we can even arrange private yoga classes for you if desired. There are also a number of bookable experiences and treats here at Lower Marsh Farm including private wild food foraging workshops, wine tasting evenings, spa treatments, afternoon tea, suppers and more.

Also we are Cornwall Wildlife Trust Members which gives our guests access to their wildlife education sessions for children which include mini-beast safaris, rock pooling events and bird box making. You can also purchase discounted tickets for the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The farm is managed in an eco-friendly manner and you can find out more about this here – we are always happy to discuss how this works during your visit.

You can also have great quality, sustainably grown food delivered by local providers – and we also grow many of our own vegetables too.  A dairy located in the next village can provide milk and dairy products.

Children and babies are very welcome and we can provide a variety of the necessities associated with small people (cots, highchairs and more)! We have ample parking and storage areas for bikes and surf boards.

After a day of exploring the farm and nearby areas, relax with a drink in front of the roaring log burner – you are welcome to use wood from our wood store.

There are so many things to do here and out and about, but for any rainy days, the barn comes complete with a 49″ wall mounted satellite television, Blu-Ray/DVD player and 5.1 surround sound.  You can even connect your iPod / iPhone wirelessly to the sound system to play your favourite tunes whilst you cook or eat.  There are books, board games and DVDs in the barn for your use.
